Haifa specializes in Myofascial Release which is a technique that separates “stuck” fascia from surrounding muscles and skin to decrease pain. She is also certified in Swedish, Neuromuscular Therapy so she can locate those trigger points caused from physical trauma, strains or emotional stress. Haifa is Reiki attuned and incorporates that into her massages when she feels guided or asked to do so. Haifa is sensitive to verbal and non verbal communication with her guests allowing you to feel at ease as soon as she lays hands on you.
