Target a primary area or issue of concern by layering modalities. Most begin with energy work on the target area like a gemstone therapy treatment and acupressure then moving on to gentle massage techniques (Myofascial Release and Swedish Massage) ending deeper massage work that can include firmer pressure and stretching.
These sessions can be shorter (30 min or 45 min) and usually scheduled more frequently to maximize effectiveness.
Examples of Focus Sessions include:
A blend of gemstone energy medicine, acupressure and massage are focused specifically on the head, neck and shoulders to relieve migraines, headaches or sinus congestion.
Back Pain Relief
A blend of gemstone energy medicine, acupressure and massage are focused on relieving pain and discomfort anywhere in the upper, middle or lower back.
Stress Reducing Foot Massage
Massage, reflexology and acupressure on the feet can provide a profound sense of relaxation, nurturing and balance throughout the entire body. This type of session is also ideal for clients who would like to receive the benefits of massage but feel most comfortable remaining clothed.

There is a place I believe when we need to listen to our bodies and not ignore the cries. For me, if it was a massage, Gemstone Therapy or Shiatsu with Erin, I felt a calmness and a sense of energy during and after each session, which in turn had a great impact on my health and well being. What I enjoyed most with my time with Erin was her personal and professional demeanor as she worked through my sessions, and her caring outlook.
I was amazed at the results after just one session! I had been suffering with lower back tension for months. Erin was so compassionate, and created a soothing healing experience that was wonderful. My lower back pain went away immediately, and has not returned since. I would HIGHLY recommend Turn a New Leaf Massage Gemstone Therapy session to anyone, just try it!
