Welcome to Restored Roots! My name is Danielle Reed and I am a Wisconsin licensed massage therapist and bodyworker. I look forward to working with you on your journey to restoring health and comfort! At Restored Roots, I use both Eastern and Western massage modalities to promote physical, mental, and spiritual healing. Some of the modalities I use include; Tui Na, Cupping/ Fire Cupping, Gua Sha, Hot Stone, Deep Tissue, and Swedish massage. The following is a brief description of each of these modalities. Tui Na: is a Chinese medical massage that includes pressing acupressure points and using stimulating massage techniques along meridians in the body to create more energy flow throughout the body and promote balance. Cupping: a technique that uses cups (silicone, glass) to create suction on the skin to reduce muscle and fascial tension and bring blood flow to the areas and promote healing. Gua Sha: a smooth flat edged tool that is used to scrape the skin creating friction and promoting blood circulation and healing to those areas. Hot Stone: a type of massage that involves the use and placement of heated basalt river rocks on different points of the body. This modality is popular for relaxation and stress relief. Deep Tissue: massage that uses firm pressure and slow strokes to massage deep layers of muscle and fascia, a common technique is muscle stripping, which is deep pressure that glides along the length of your muscle fibers and friction, which applies pressure across the grain of your muscle to break up adhesions and align tissue fibers. Great modality for chronic pain relief. Swedish: one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. Includes long gliding strokes, kneading, deep circular movements. This technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension.
