Very common form of massage for basic relaxation. Efflerauge/Gliding strokes are used to warm the muscle before any pressure strokes. Soothing relaxing general massage. Pressure is at clients comfort. Firm pressure is not deep tissue.
Deep tissue can benefit your body to help eleviate pain, soreness, tightness and tension within muscle tissue.
Spirit Style Massage
Barbara incorporates Esalen style which invokes a very soothing and rythmic approach to massage, using long, flowing full body strokes. A very intuitive session. Her Spirit Style massage quickly becomes most people’s favorite type of massage once they’ve experienced it.
The body is worked as a whole. Not only is a physical connection made but an energetic connection between therapist and client and often a spiritual connection between a client and themselves.
Using intuition and creativity, this soothing bodywork emphasizes nurturing and empathy, creating deeper states of relaxation. The continuous flow of this massage will enhance intuition, magnify the senses and communicate with your entire being. Feel the stress melt away as the healing mechanisms of the body begin to dominate, helping you to find inner peace and harmony.
Thai Yoga Massage
Performed on floor, Thai Yoga Bodywork involves client lying on floor in a passive state. The practitioner leads the stretching while the recipient remains very much in a passive state. Many of the stretches involve holding and pressing patterns.
This style of massage allows the practitioner to work many areas of the body and as such releases you physically, emotionally and spiritually. It is an amazing piece of art and anyone is able to recieve Thai Yoga Massage.
Nuad Borarn (Thai-Yoga Massage) is viewed as a martial art of healing and is reported to manifest instant positive results. In Thailand, Bodywork is utilized medicinally as a cherished and revered indulgence to remedy the prominent social ailments such as emotional stress and physical inertia. Thai-Yoga sessions inspire the soul and tranquilize the body.
In a Thai-Yoga Massage it allows one to enter into a surrendering state which allows deeper physical and mental ‘openings’. Flowing rhythmic compressions using the feet, knees, palms, elbows, forearms and fingers are blended with exotic stretching positions known as asanas and disciplined breath control known as pranayama, effectively producing a balanced and harmonious symbiotic communication integrating the body’s vital systems, including mechanical- musculoskeletal, electrical-neural, chemical-glandular.
Thai-Yoga Massage is love. It is a sacred offering, a conscious contribution to self-realization and soul revelation, the goal and purpose of life. Deliberate and skillful intentions of joyful communication, Thai-Yoga massage produces profound pleasure and inspiring tranquility physically and psychologically by replacing old, restricted energy patterns within the body/spirit. Socially revered as a medical folk art, it is commonly reported to revitalize and balance cerebral (emotional) and somatic (physical) ailments instantly.
This dignified and communally-cherished art parallels in sophistication results obtained by other modern medical options. Aesthetically pleasing and highly recommended, Thai-Yoga bodywork enhances the quality of living by opening congested chakras (dormant reservoirs of bio-spiritual power) and clearing nadis (electro-magnetic meridian pathways), Nuad Borarn is one of the Original Matriarchs of healing.Its distinction is true in its value of producing dynamic well-being and serenity.

Barbara works alone when performing her couples massages. Rest assured each of you will receive her attention. She generally starts work on woman massaging face, head and neck. Then to man’s face, head and neck. She then positions herself in between both tables and works on the two of you at the same time as much as possible.
She has two tables that she uses and makes the atmosphere more romantic by using relaxing music and candles. Light draping used to your comfort level.
Couples Divine Touch Massage Class
The session starts off with relaxed conversation getting to know each other as individuals and me getting to know you as a couple. It is important to listen and communicate honestly and openly in order for Barbara to do her best at helping you. As a massage therapist she will help teach you how to perform basic massage strokes.
She will do her best to help you enter into a relaxed state of being in order for you to feel on a deeper level. Intent is to help you enter into a sub-conscious state. In this state you will then be able to feel all your senses becoming stronger.
With each class afterwards we will continue with the intention of entering into that sub-conscious level which will widen your senses. As senses continue to widen you will become freer in your own selves as individuals and freer as a couple in your love for each other. All making for a happier home!
