Massage Therapist

I studied at Central Florida School of Massage Therapy. I help people with the effects of stress and pain using both deep tissue and Swedish massage techniques (and I enjoy using hot towels or stones). I like learning what works for everyone individually and adapting techniques while focusing on soothing your nervous system. My favorite part of massage therapy is being a part of people‘s self care, whether it’s once a month or once a week, to ease physical pain or to realign with your inner peace.

At Ackerman Acupuncture & Massage, we offer a variety of treatments to improve your massage experience. We’ll work with you to create specialized therapy sessions, targeted toward your needs. Some of our treatments are simply massage methods. Others, like aromatherapy, are add-ons that can take your massage to the next level.
  • Swedish Massage

    If you’re new to massage therapy, Swedish massage is the perfect place to start. Long gliding massage strokes are used to provide relaxation, relieve tension and improve circulation. All our therapists practice this technique.

  • Cupping Therapy

    In this treatment, your therapist will use special cups to create localized suction on your skin. The suction then mobilizes blood flow to promote healing. All our therapists practice this and the treatment can be added to your massage for no charge.

  • Deep Tissue Massage

    In deep tissue massage, we use the same strokes as traditional massage therapy, but we focus on a very specific area, work slower, and apply deeper pressure. By targeting knots and areas of tension or pain, we’re able to realign deeper layers of muscle and tissue and relieve chronic muscle tension. All our therapists practice this technique.

  • Myofascial Release

    This is a type of soft tissue therapy that is used to treat skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Here, we seek to relax contracted muscles and to improve circulation throughout the body. Angela and Rain practice this technique.

  • Shiatsu

    Shiatsu is a Japanese form of bodywork based in Traditional Chinese Medicine and is practiced by applying kneading and pressing techniques, range of motion exercises, assisted stretching and taping are also used.  It traditionally is done over loose comfortable clothing. Shiatsu is a great way to address anxiety, stress, and muscle tension.  After a treatment the client will feel overall a sense of calmness, well-being and balanced energy. Angela and Rain specialize in Shiatsu.

  • Prenatal Massage

    Studies show that prenatal massage can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve aches and pains, and even positively affect labor and the health of your new baby. At Massage Off Central, we’ll make sure you see a therapist who is specially trained and certified in prenatal massage.

  • Craniosacral Therapy

    This specialized massage therapy is comprised of a series of light touches. It is designed to enhance the functioning of the membranes, tissues, fluids, and bones surrounding or associated with the brain and spinal cord. This type of therapy releases tensions and dysfunction in the body to improve health and restore balance. Rain is currently our only therapist who practices this technique.

  • Trigger Point Therapy

    A “trigger point” is a specific site of muscle tension that causes pain in other parts of your body. A trigger point in your neck, for example, may be causing headaches. Trigger point therapy places pressure on that trigger point, working at the source of the pain to bring relief to the whole body. In this method, we apply pressure with fingers, knuckles, and elbows to relax the muscle and alleviate pain. All our therapists practice this technique.

  • Hot Stone

    In this massage treatment, your therapist places heated, smooth stones on key points of your body. Heat from these stones can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so that your therapist can work more deeply. We do this on your back only for no additional charge. All our therapists practice this technique.
