When we are complete I will place a heat pack on your abdomen to provide you with warmth and vitality for 10 minutes.

Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is an anatomically correct, effectively applied modality of massage working to release holding patterns in the body with a intentional and therapeutic touch. The therapist doesn’t just glide over the muscle but rather anchors into it. The therapist will move very slowly, working at an oblique angle to stretch the fascia and connective tissues. Fists, knuckles, and elbows are used to work firmly into the muscle. In deep tissue work there is great potential for more lasting change and healing of injuries.

Swedish Relaxation Massage
During Swedish massage, massage therapists use massage oils to facilitate friction and stretching of the muscles. This massage is intended to address the whole body. With this treatment long and broad strokes are used including rocking, tapping, and kneading of the muscles. Active and passive stretches are also incorporated to encourage more range of motion in the joints of the body. Some of the effects of Swedish massage are relaxation, increased body awareness, and deep letting go of long-time held places.

About our services
As a Holistic Health Practitioner, trained at the esteemed natural healing arts center The Heartwood Institute, Austen provides an integrated, alternative approach to massage therapy. With eight years of experience she is an experienced, motivational body worker trained in therapeutic modalities:
Prenatal and Postpartum, Swedish, Deep Tissue, Cranial Sacral, Acutonics (sound healing), Polarity, and Hot Stone Massage.
Aussten has practiced with numerous body types, including athletes, and with injury-related cases in health spas and chiropractors’ offices throughout California. She delves deeply into the imbalances of the person’s body and helps map a path that leads to better health and relaxation.
I have had many massages over the years, and each person has their own technique and style. Austen is very versatile… she listens to what you want, she checks back with you to make sure you’re happy with what she is doing, she’s willing to try new things and is as adventuresome (or traditional) as the client wishes. I very much look forward to my regular visits with Austen.” — Johne
Austen is my anchor providing whatever bodywork therapy is needed during times of change, renewal, and balance. I can’t say enough good things about her healing arts. I thought I’d try her once but never looked further. I’ve been a regular client for several months and several friends also praise her expertise.” — Bonnie
Austen is one of those individuals that have been blessed with healing hands. I used to own a massage therapy business and I’ve had a lot of massages, so I am very particular when choosing a massage therapist. What I enjoy about Austen’s work is her sensitivity to her client’s needs and the deep resources that she draws upon to skillfully take you to a place of balance and integration. Her deep body work is especially helpful in treating my chronic pain from old injuries. After receiving a massage from Austen, I feel completely relaxed and rejuvenated. Having received massages from dozens of therapists, I can honestly say Austen’s work is among the best I’ve experienced anywhere.” — Jordon
Many massage therapists are just that- a massage therapist. I have been getting massage since 1982 and in those years I have found that only a few massage therapists are healers. Austen Tate is a healer and massage therapist” — Michael
