South Bend Massage and Healing: Dena Woods, LMT


A letter to my clients concerning COVID-19:
I take the safety of my colleagues, our families, my clients, and clients’ families very seriously. As a community, we are facing a critical time to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. By postponing all appointments for the next few weeks, I will be doing my part to help “flatten the curve” that will hopefully save the lives of our loved ones who are the most susceptible group to contract severe illness and death. Please reschedule or book your appointment for after 4/13/20.

As your therapist, my responsibility is to your well being and the well being of others. Your health, my colleagues health, and my own health is at the heart of this decision. I sincerely thank you for your understanding and patience as we work through this difficult time.

Add-On: Face and Scalp Massage
Massage applied to face and scalp to enhance relaxation while melting away head, neck, and shoulder tension. This massage is typically conducted at the beginning of the massage and without the use of oil.
Add-On: Arm Burritos
Arm burritos are my signature protocol for alleviating tension in the hands and forearms utilizing heated hydrotherapy, muscle marinade, and hot stones. My anti-inflammatory muscle marinade is applied to the hands, wrists, and forearms, then arms are wrapped in hot towels to encourage vasodilation. Once marinated, towels are removed and hot stones are incorporated into massage strokes on the arms to further encourage blood flow and alleviate tension. I developed this add-on as a way to care for my own arms and hands, so it's a great add-on for anyone suffering from carpal tunnel or who utilizes their arms and hands often.
Add-On: Foot Reflexology
Applied pressure to areas of the feet associated with specific zones of the body. This add-on also incorporates massage techniques, hot towels, hot stones, and essential oils.
