Barbara McKillop

 

 

Style:             

My name is Barbara and I love what I do. I am trained in & provide Remedialmassage, Sports massage, Hot and Cool Stone massage, Relaxation massage, Reflexology, Indian Head Massage, Hawaiian bodywork (KaHuna & Lomilomi), Thai-style assisted stretching, Manual Lymphatic Drainage, Pregnancy massage, and Myofascial, suction and Traditional Flame Cupping. I am also a qualified Beauty Therapist and provide both relaxing and therapeutic facials.
My specialty is providing a fusion of remedial techniques while incorporating the use of
amazing hot stones. My massage is tailored to your needs to get the results you want.
The warmth from the stones feels so comforting and luxurious, promoting deep
relaxation to your muscles, and allowing the massage to go deeper and reach all those
tight spots. This style of massage is particularly useful for chronic pain, fibromyalgia,
lower back pain, period pain, upper back pain, shoulder/neck pain, sports injuries and
stress management.
I incorporate hot stones in most modalities. Just let me know if you prefer massage
without the stones, however if you have not experienced my integrative style before it is
well worth giving it a try.

Available:       Wed evening and Saturday afternoon
