Massage Therapy and Bodywork in Ruidoso, Structural IntegrationMy name is Shiva Reinhardt. I am a massage therapist currently licensed in New Mexico, LMT 5538 and licensed in Hawaii MAT 8123, from where I just moved. Here in these pages you may discover all manner of educational resources regarding massage and wellness, personal growth, and travel to Kauai. Email me at shiva [at] presencemassage [dot] com.
I do therapeutic, deep connective tissue therapy, which comes through me as a presence-centered bodywork. Like most therapists my massage style is unique and the fusion comes from all that I've learned not only in massage school, but from every massage I've gotten, and every experience I've had. My sessions are tailor-made to each individual.
IMPORTANT - During any massage you are encouraged to tell me if you want pressure deeper or lighter. You should never be in pain during a massage from me, even during deep work.
Therapeutic Massage - This massage is a 1 or 1.5 hour treatment that can be totally relaxing, take all your stress away and leave you floating on cloud nine. You can also come in with a problem or issue you'd like addressed, like a painful back, or injured shoulder and you will leave not only feeling better in that area of your body, but also more relaxed overall. I use a combination of Swedish, Lomi Lomi, Neuromuscular Therapy, Structural Bodywork, Crainiosacral, Aromatherapy and other modalities. You can request something specific, or leave it up to me. 60 min $65 / 90 min $85
Structural Integration - Please click the link for detailed information on this series of bodywork treatments that targets the connective tissue for change in structure, and greater levels of freedom and wellness. Each session is between 1.5 and 2 hours long. 10 Session Series paid in advance - $900 / Pay for 1 session at a time - $100 each
Abhyanga This Ayurvedic warm oil massage is deeply relaxing and rejuvenating. Unlike Swedish, Lomi Lomi, or other popular types of massage, the strokes in this form of massage are brisk and rhythmical. Herb infused oil is heated to a soothing temperature and applied liberally, the strokes aiding the absorption of the oil. $75 60 min.
Salt Glow - Also called a salt scrub or body polish, in this treatment your body is exfoliated for smooth and healthy skin using salt and oil. This treatment is invigorating and is a great add on to another other treatment. $45 30 min
Body Wrap - First your skin will be exfoliated with a dry brush or gloves to stimulate circulation and get rid of the top layer of dead skin. Then a mixture of sea minerals, algea and mud is applied to your body, and you are wrapped like a cocoon. While your head, neck and feet are massaged, the mud does its detoxifying work, drawing impurities from the skin and infusing it with antioxidants and minerals. $75 60min
Hot Stone Massage - My interpretation of the hot stone massage includes massage with my hands and with the stones. I use stones which have been heated in temperture controlled water to first massage and warm your muscles. When that has been achieved sufficiently, I then use my hands only to do detailed work on your muscles, releasing the tight and sore spots. During most of the massage you will have stones lying on your back, chest, or stomach to allow the soothing heat to penetrate deeply into your muscles. It is not unusual for skin to be red for up to a day following this treatment in areas where stones were placed for extended periods. $85 60 min / $100 90 min
Private Yoga sessions - During a 1 or 1.5 hour session I will guide you through a series of poses suited to your needs. Before the session we'll discuss in some detail your injuries, needs, and intent. During the practice of yoga postures, I will give you precise verbal instructions, with hands on adjustments so that your alignment is correct and you're not hurting yourself while you move deeply into poses to create freedom in places that were previously stuck. This private session is perfect for beginners who feel they need more attention than usually given in a public class, or intermediate or advanced students who just want more attention so they can go further physically and deeper with their consciousness into the meditation of yoga. I teach in the style of Forrest Yoga, described here. $30 60 min, $40 90 min
Holistic Body-Mind-Heart Therapy
- For those who abide permanently or semi-permanently in Ruidoso, I can offer a series of sessions just for you, to target almost any specific issues you may have.
- I am trained in Structural Integration and can offer the 10 session series.
- The training I recieved also prepared me to work with clients who may have emotional release, or who are interested in contacting emotions through massage.
- In other words, I do way more than just relaxation/vacation massage. I can work with you over time in a real therapeutic context.
- Whether you have chronic pain, or a specific issue you'd like to address, or you want to rise to greater and greater levels of wellness, I would like to support you in that.
- If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me by email.
