Ashiatsu Therapeutic Massage and Cupping Therapy

Celeste Egedy (they/she)

Ashiatsu, meaning “foot pressure” in Japanese, is a therapeutic style of massage that combines techniques of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point Therapy, Shiatsu and Myofascial Release. Ashiatsu is a dance between sustained pressure, broad relaxing strokes and detailed work that releases muscle tension, elongates the body and calms the nervous system. The work is done slowly and intentionally, unwinding the armored body, encouraging more space for awareness and healing.
 
Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, and rheumatism. The suction and lifting pressure provided by cupping loosens muscles, encourages blood flow, and sedates the nervous system. Add to any session at no extra charge. We will determine at time of session if cupping is needed.
 
Celeste (they/she) is a graduate of the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts in Santa Fe and has been a bodywork practitioner for over 10 years, currently specializing in Ashiatsu Therapeutic Massage and Cupping Therapy. From a young age, Celeste has maintained and nurtured a dance/movement/body practice – an ever evolving exploration of the human form and function, how it carries us and our stories, and its ability to heal. They have studied a broad range of modalities to help facilitate personal growth and body/self awareness – massage, energy work, meditation, and yoga. Celeste is dedicated to inviting and holding space for others to get in touch with their own wellness and physical experience. Celeste’s background in dance, extensive training, and gentle and kind presence help bring a balance of artistry, attentiveness, and care to each session, listening and responding creatively to the unique needs of each client. Their bodywork has been described as both technical and tender and will allow you to soften into a more spacious and grounded place within.

May we find peace together.
