Completing and graduated my Advanced Holistic Body worker training at the World School of Massage in Pleasanton, and been putting my top-notch education to good use ever since. I offers a wonderful combination of therapeutic and treatment massage. Even before then, my earliest memories were of “wanting to help people feel better.” Always moving towards that goal, it was my formal education and trust in the healing arts that blessed her own healing .I use my intuition and education to provide her clients with the most effective treatments I can.
Holistic therapy treats the whole person - mind, body and spirit. My aim is not only to relax the muscles, calm the emotions, improve the body’s immune system and refresh the spirit, but also to bring conscious awareness to the daily patterns which bring about imbalances in the body. Your session does not end when you get up from the table. Your healing will continue in the hours and days that follow. You may also be given exercises and/or stretches to do between your sessions for maximum benefit.
Bodywork restores impaired energy by nourishing the body and mind on a cellular, emotional and Spiritual level. When given the opportunity to free yourself from discomfort, a whole new perspective comes to life. Your session with myself is dedicated to meeting your goals respectfully
I believe in the body's ability to heal it and that massage therapy is one of the many paths to restoring health and wholeness to the body. I am also a strong supporter of self-care. I continuing education plans include the completion of the second level of cranial sacral therapy training and many more massages. Highlights of my bodywork training include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Neuromuscular therapy, Trigger point, Vibrational Healing Massage Therapy, Hot Stones Therapy, Sport Massage, Lymphatic Drainage, Cranial Sacral, Aromatherapy, Graston, Cupping ,Thai Ball to name a few. I look forward to creating a custom treatment, designed for your individual healthcare needs. Clients appreciate her firm, strong touch, her intuition, and her specific knowledge of anatomy.

Gina's mission is "To convey the utmost respect and caring through Massage and Craniosacral Therapy, facilitating each person's own ability to heal and recover."
Ms. Moore studied the base modalities of Swedish massage, Deep Tissue and Reflexology, but went on to specialize in a program there for vulnerable populations. She has significant time and experience working with Elders, Oncology, Hospice, Trauma, and Craniosacral Therapies(CST). Her CST training at the Upledger Institute included Somato-Emotional Release, and she attained enough training and experience to qualify as an Associate Instructor.
Intention is the most significant factor that differentiates massage therapy sessions --- from just "Ok" to "That was amazing!". When we sense genuine caring, compassion and understanding through touch, the healing power of our body engages fully. We feel safe and seen and our body releases chemicals that make us feel good physically and emotionally. Gina's goal is to communicate this genuine caring through intention with every single therapy session.
Gina also wants the public to know that contrary to popular belief, "Deep tissue Massage" does not mean "painful" massage. Done properly, Deep Tissue Massage, prompts a feeling of pressure in the area being treated, not pain, and slowly unwinds tight areas in the body. Many of her clients have actually fallen asleep during Deep Tissue therapy sessions. Before training as a massage therapist, she also improperly believed that if there was "no pain", then there was "no gain" from massage as a client, herself. But the opposite is true: pain stimulates the sympathetic nervous response (releases cortisol), while therapeutic massage should stimulate the parasympathetic system (releasing serotonin, endorphins and dopamine).

Lymphatic Drainage Massage|$100
I have been blessed to learn a specific technique taught by a master healer. Her technique is very healing and thorough and clearing for the emotional/physical body.
The work is gentle, light and specific to the lymph system, which lies close to the skin. It uses the plumbing principle to drain and dump the debris into the belly to be assimilated and released via the urine, sweat, breath and bowel. The belly is touched in this work, and the liver/gallbladder are stimulated to dump and drain. You will be guided with meditation when appropriate, as well as having sound healing to support release. I love this work, it is very close to my heart as it was a catalyst that took me deeper into my healed state.
Contraindications are Absolute Contraindications:
Acute inflammation - caused by an antigen - bacteria, viruses and poisons are contraindicated. Tissues will be red, hot, and painful with congestion accompanied by fever. Lymphatic drainage will push these substances into the lymph channels before the body has a chance to eliminate them. This way one can spread the toxic substances throughout the body. It is best to wait a few days until the condition is not acute and the body has had a chance to clean up the area. Acute Phlebitis - inflammation of the vein.
Malignant tumours/disease – including tumour recurrence or metastases. There is a fear of spreading the cancer. Treated cancers ok to proceed with MLD with oncology and specialists notes regarding treatment received. Note: if palliative then proceeding with MLD to reduce symptoms/oedemas is consented by patient/specialist/GP.
Acute Thrombosis – can lead to free floating blood clots in the circulatory system. If treated thrombus ok to proceed with MLD
Congestive heart problems – if the heart is not fully functioning, oedema can be lymphodynamic due to a lack of venous return. Pumping more fluid in the heart it may stress it more than the actual condition.

45 Minute Fascia Blasting| $75
Fascia blasting is the latest approach to healing pain and treating cellulite and improving adhesions. It involves the use of the FasciaBlaster, a white plastic wand with claw-like attachments that you rub on the skin over the painful area for three to five 5 minutes.
This appointment is for using the Faciablaster and will be blasted only. Applied with the flushing and activating techniques and hot/cold application, this is for specific spot work
(if you want a few areas blasted during massage- book a regular 60 or 90 min. massage appointment and ask for the fascia blaster).
Using a special hand tool, we can reduce fascial adhesions responsible for many distortions of pain such as hip flexors, tight hamstrings and calves, low back spasms, rotator cuff issues and migraines. Using techniques discovered by Ashley Black, you can discover the amazing benefits of this work- it also reduces cellulite and dissolves fat!
(Contraindication is blood thinner usage, deep vein thrombosis and a history of blood clotting.)
Fascia is a continuous layer of connective tissue that covers all your muscles, bones, organs, and nerves. It’s mostly made of collagen, and it helps to give form to your body.
The continuous nature of fascia helps your body parts move. Fascia attaches, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs, allowing these structures to slide and move through the body.
When fascia is healthy, it’s flexible enough to twist, glide, and bend. But inflammation and trauma can tighten the fascia, causing pain. Additionally, fascia contains many nerves that are sensitive to pain.
Fascia pain is associated with various conditions, such as:
It’s also believed that fascia plays a role in cellulite, the orange peel–like, dimpled skin texture that most often appears on the thighs, hips, and buttocks.
Cellulite happens when parts of the skin are pulled down by fibrous connective bands, which attach the skin to muscle. The skin becomes dimpled as fat cells collect between the bands.
This appointment can be used for relief and self treatment education.
