Together, these therapies form a comprehensive approach to wellness, tailored to your individual needs. Whether you seek relief from chronic pain, tension, or simply desire a moment of tranquility, our Signature Massage is designed to nurture your body, mind, and spirit.
  • When should I avoid getting a massage?
    When considering whether to schedule a massage, it's essential to be mindful of certain circumstances where it may be best to postpone your session. If you're experiencing a fever, contagious illness, or are in the early stages of recovery from surgery or injury, it's advisable to wait until you're feeling better before booking your massage. Additionally, if you have certain medical conditions such as deep vein thrombosis, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or certain skin infections, it's essential to consult with your healthcare provider before proceeding with massage therapy. Your safety and well-being are Adriane's top priorities, and she's here to ensure that your massage experience is not only relaxing but also conducive to your overall health. If you have any concerns or questions about whether massage therapy is suitable for you at this time, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to support you on your wellness journey.
  • How will I feel after the massage or bodywork session?
    After your massage session with Adriane, you'll likely experience a deep sense of relaxation and inner calm that extends far beyond the treatment room. Clients often describe feeling "brand new," deeply relaxed, and refreshed. Aside from the physical benefits, you may also notice a newfound sense of mental clarity and emotional balance. Many clients report feeling more centered, grounded, and at peace after their massage, ready to take on the day with renewed energy and vitality. The effects of massage are as unique as you are, but one thing's for sure: you'll leave your session feeling lighter, brighter, and more balanced than when you arrived.
  • What is Myofascial Release Therapy?
    By addressing muscle immobility and discomfort, Myofascial Release works wonders in relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and gently nudging the stretch reflex in muscles. It's a holistic approach that not only targets muscles but also considers the fascia—the connective tissue that envelops and sustains them. This therapy is a remarkable alternative with a multitude of benefits, acting as a reset button for your muscles. At One Healing Touch, Myofascial Release is seamlessly integrated into our OHT Signature Massage, automatically applied as needed to enhance your massage experience.
  • What is the difference between Trigger Point Therapy & Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)?
    While neuromuscular therapy (NMT) and trigger point therapy share similarities and often overlap in their techniques and goals, they are not identical. Trigger point therapy specifically focuses on identifying and releasing trigger points, which are hyperirritable spots in the muscle tissue that can cause referred pain and restricted movement. The primary goal of trigger point therapy is to deactivate these trigger points through various techniques such as sustained pressure, massage, and stretching. On the other hand, neuromuscular therapy (NMT) takes a broader approach by addressing not only trigger points but also nerve compression and biomechanical dysfunction. NMT aims to restore balance in the musculoskeletal system by releasing muscle tension, improving blood flow, and alleviating pain. It often involves a combination of techniques, including trigger point therapy, soft tissue manipulation, and postural analysis. So, while trigger point therapy focuses specifically on releasing trigger points, neuromuscular therapy encompasses a broader range of techniques and aims to address a wider array of musculoskeletal issues. Both therapies can be effective in relieving pain and promoting overall well-being, but they may be applied differently depending on the specific needs of the individual client.
  • How often should I schedule massage sessions?
    The frequency of your massage sessions is as unique as you are, tailored to your individual needs and goals. For those seeking general wellness and stress relief, scheduling a massage every 4-6 weeks can work wonders in maintaining balance and tranquility in your life. However, if you're dealing with specific issues such as chronic pain or injury recovery, a more frequent schedule may be recommended initially. By prioritizing regular sessions, we can work together to address these concerns effectively and support your journey towards healing and recovery. Adriane is committed to providing personalized care that meets you exactly where you are on your wellness journey. Whether you're seeking relaxation, pain relief, or a combination of both, She's here to support you every step of the way.
  • Is massage therapy suitable for everyone?
    Massage therapy can benefit people of all ages and backgrounds. Yet, it's essential to recognize that specific medical conditions or contraindications may necessitate adjustments or consultation with your healthcare provider before utilizing massage therapy. For instance, conditions such as uncontrolled high blood pressure, deep vein thrombosis, certain skin conditions, infectious diseases, and recent surgeries may require careful consideration and professional guidance before scheduling a session. Adriane's utmost priority is your safety and well-being, so she encourages open communication and collaboration to ensure that your massage experience is not only relaxing but also tailored to support your unique health needs.

Whether you're seeking relief from pain, tension, or simply looking to enhance relaxation, neuromuscular therapy can provide the reset your muscles need to thrive.
  • How does your OHT Signature Massage incorporate Reiki?
    Reiki, a gentle energy healing technique, serves as the perfect companion to every massage session, enriching relaxation and harmonizing the body's energy flow. It becomes an integral part of your experience, making space for holistic wellness and elevating your experience to tranquility. While the effects may be subtle, they are powerful. You may find yourself sinking into deeper relaxation, enveloped in a sense of peace and calm. Mental clarity gently emerges, clearing away the noise of everyday life, while an overarching feeling of joy embraces you, leaving you refreshed and renewed.
  • Must I be completely undressed?
    For the most part, traditional massage and bodywork techniques are performed with the client unclothed, but at One Healing Touch, your comfort and preferences are Adriane's priority. You have the freedom to choose what you wear during your session. Adriane encourages you to undress to your level of comfort. Rest assured, you will be properly draped throughout the entire session to maintain your privacy and comfort.

  • How does Access Consciousness Bars work, and what does a session entail?
    Access Consciousness Bars is a powerful modality that goes beyond simply helping people clear their minds and reduce stress. By gently touching 32 points on the head, the Bars are designed to release all the considerations, thoughts, feelings, emotions, decisions, judgments, and beliefs from any lifetime that are electrically stored in the brain. This stored 'junk' can hold us back and limit our potential, but having your Bars done allows that junk to be released, similar to flipping a circuit breaker so the lights come on. This technique has been shown to have a profound impact on brain waves. In fact, several doctors who are experts in biofeedback have reported changes in their brain waves from beta to much more relaxed theta waves in the course of a one-hour session. This means that the Bars can change the electrical function of the brain, allowing the energy of the universe to become available to you, resulting in more peace, ease, joy, and glory in life. By gently touching these specific points, it allows the electromagnetic charge of thoughts, feelings, and emotions to dissipate, promoting relaxation and mental clarity. Access Consciousness Bars is truly a powerful tool for anyone looking to release limitations and access their full potential.

By lightly touching these points, Access Consciousness Bars facilitates the release of electromagnetic charges associated with thoughts, feelings, and emotions, allowing individuals to let go of limiting beliefs and patterns stored in their subconscious. Moreover, Access Consciousness Bars goes beyond addressing physical or emotional ailments; it encompasses all areas of life, including relationships, finances, and personal growth. This holistic perspective allows for profound transformations and enables individuals to access their full potential in every aspect of their lives. Another distinguishing feature of Access Consciousness Bars is its emphasis on empowerment and self-awareness. Rather than relying solely on the practitioner's expertise, clients are encouraged to actively participate in their healing process by asking questions, exploring new possibilities, and embracing their innate capacities. This collaborative approach fosters a sense of empowerment and self-discovery, empowering individuals to become active agents in their own healing journey.
  • Can Access Consciousness Bars help with specific issues like anxiety or insomnia?
    Individual experiences with Access Consciousness Bars may vary, but many individuals do report finding relief from conditions such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, and more.

This is a natural part of the healing process and typically indicates that deep-seated issues are being addressed.
  • Can Access Bars be combined with other healing modalities?
    Yes, Access Bars can be combined with a variety of other healing modalities to enhance and complement the overall therapeutic experience. Many practitioners integrate Access Bars into their existing healing practices, such as massage therapy, Reiki, acupuncture, chiropractic care, counseling, and more. Combining Access Bars with other modalities can offer synergistic benefits, addressing different aspects of the individual's well-being and promoting holistic healing. For example, pairing Access Bars with massage therapy can help release physical tension while also addressing underlying emotional or energetic imbalances. Similarly, integrating Access Bars with Reiki or acupuncture may amplify the flow of energy throughout the body, promoting deeper relaxation and healing. Ultimately, the compatibility of Access Bars with other healing modalities allows for a customized and comprehensive approach to wellness, tailored to the individual's unique needs and preferences. It's essential to communicate openly with your practitioners about your goals and preferences to ensure a personalized and effective healing experience.

  • How is pregnancy massage different to regular massage?
    As a certified Nurturing the Mother pregnancy massage therapist, Adriane prioritizes your comfort and safety during every session. She employs a specialized side-lying position that ensures minimal pressure on your growing abdomen and lower back, alleviating any discomfort.

  • What are session enhancements/add-ons, and how do they enhance my experience?
    Session enhancements, or add-ons as they are often called, are special touches you can include in your massage or energetic healing sessions to tailor the experience to your specific needs and preferences. Think of them as the cherry on top of an already delicious cake! Here’s a little more about each and how they can elevate your experience: Warm Himalayan Salt Stones: These beautiful stones do more than just look pretty. When heated, they release negative ions, believed to create a sense of peace and deeper sense of relaxation. The warmth of the stones also helps to reduce muscle tension and promote circulation. CBD: CBD add-ons can significantly enhance your massage by providing an extra layer of relaxation. CBD is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties, making it a fantastic option if you’re looking to ease muscle soreness or joint pain. Aromatherapy: This isn’t just about making the room smell nice (though that’s definitely a perk). Aromatherapy can have a noticeable effect on your mood, helping to reduce stress and anxiety, boost energy levels, or promote relaxation, depending on the blend of essential oils used. Deep-tissue Therapy: Perfect for those who love a bit more pressure or are dealing with chronic muscle tension. This add-on focuses on reaching deeper layers of muscle tissue, helping to break up knots and relieve pain. Warm Bamboo Deep Tissue (for members only): This unique therapy uses warm bamboo sticks to roll and knead away deep-seated tension. It’s a deeper, firmer massage experience that’s both therapeutic and utterly relaxing. Cupping Therapy: Drawing from ancient traditions, cupping therapy uses suction to lift the skin and superficial muscles. It’s known to improve circulation, relieve muscle tension, and promote cell repair. Each of these enhancements is designed to boost the benefits of your massage or Reiki session, allowing for a deeper, more personalized experience.
  • What exactly is Reiki?
    Reiki is a beautiful Japanese healing practice that gently transfers positive healing energy from the practitioner's hands to the client, activating deep relaxation and alleviating stress. In other words, it acts as a gentle switch, turning off the constant 'flight-or-fight' response our bodies are often locked into, allowing for peace and calm. Rooted in the belief that an invisible 'life force energy' flows within us, Reiki acknowledges this vital energy as the essence of our being. Through this ancient technique, we tap into this divine universal energy to promote harmony on physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.
  • What does "client-tailored" mean in the context the OHT Signature Massage?
    At One Healing Touch, Adriane's client-tailored approach means that every session is meticulously crafted to cater to your individual needs and preferences. Whether your aim is to unwind in relaxation, find relief from persistent discomfort, or a harmonious blend of both, rest assured, she customizes the techniques and pressure to align perfectly with what you seek.
  • How does Access Consciousness Bars work, and what does a session entail?
    Access Consciousness Bars is a powerful modality that goes beyond simply helping people clear their minds and reduce stress. By gently touching 32 points on the head, the Bars are designed to release all the considerations, thoughts, feelings, emotions, decisions, judgments, and beliefs from any lifetime that are electrically stored in the brain. This stored 'junk' can hold us back and limit our potential, but having your Bars done allows that junk to be released, similar to flipping a circuit breaker so the lights come on. This technique has been shown to have a profound impact on brain waves. In fact, several doctors who are experts in biofeedback have reported changes in their brain waves from beta to much more relaxed theta waves in the course of a one-hour session. This means that the Bars can change the electrical function of the brain, allowing the energy of the universe to become available to you, resulting in more peace, ease, joy, and glory in life. By gently touching these specific points, it allows the electromagnetic charge of thoughts, feelings, and emotions to dissipate, promoting relaxation and mental clarity. Access Consciousness Bars is truly a powerful tool for anyone looking to release limitations and access their full potential.
