Before Lori Lyons became a licensed massage therapist, she was a massage patient herself. Thus she understands that the best massage therapists don?t just address problem areas, they also understand the deep connection between mind and body and educate their patients so they make informed decisions regarding their treatment plans. To help inform each client, Lori pulls from certifications in both craniosacral massage and myofascial release and her ongoing studies in anatomy and various massage modalities. She uses Swedish techniques to encourage relaxation, deep-tissue techniques to address severe tension, and water-heated stones to loosen sinews but keep them from floating away. In addition to easing physical pain, these methods can help strengthen the immune system, increase flexibility, and aid the body's natural healing processes. They may also be combined with Lori?s other specialties, which include ear candling and reflexology.
