GINGER MICKELSON, B.A. LMT, Integrative®Reflexologist, Clinical Aromatherapist
Ginger is a graduate of the Virginia Learning Institute in Falls Church, VA and has been practicing since February 2002. She has studied the work of Dr. Milton Trager and often incorporates meditative movement and rocking relaxation as well as gait analysis and ways to practice these in one’s everyday life. She also studied under Claire Marie Miller, for both Certified Integrative® Reflexology and Pre-conception/Prenatal/Post-partum Massage. The latter sessions are 60, 75 or 90 minutes and The Body Cushion is available for pregnant women to lay face down through the 9th month! Ginger offers 30-60 minute hand/foot/ear Reflexology sessions, with or without Aromatherapy. She completed a 100 hour certification in Clinical Aromatherapy in December 2015. She offers consultations for specific issues, customized blends, as well as a product line she has developed. She has also trained in Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sport Massage, and Active Isolated Stretching (A.I.S.) The Mattes Method. Ginger’s specialty is mixing massage and movement with a structural approach to improve alignment and your ability to move more functionally and comfortably. The beginning of her bodywork is gentle, passive joint movement and rocking to open up joints and torso, improving circulation and range of motion and giving the feeling of spaciousness from head to toe, followed by massage at the pressure you specify. Ginger also often works some foot or hand reflexes (Reflexology) to detoxify and restore internal balance to specific areas. As a Christian therapist, Ginger is happy to offer a prayer for her clients if they desire.
