Description

Akela believes we work best when we can learn to have a healthy relationship between our body and mind. Her treatments use a variety of techniques such as myofascial release, Swedish massage, relaxation breath work, and PNF stretching to improve muscle imbalances and bio-mechanics, as well as promote tissue healing. Akela is not a believer of "no pain no gain" and tries to stay away from deep tissue treatments. Akela will also give you the tools and information to take control of your health at home with therapeutic exercises and postural cues. Together you and Akela will work as a team.
