I am honored and blessed to know Tiffiny C. Rudkin, LMT of Jade Tree Wellness Center Inc. I’ve had massages before, all wonderful, but Tiffiny has raised the bar for sure! In fact, she’s more than a massage therapist, she’s an”Ailment Alleviator.”
My experience with Tiffiny today (similar to my first visit) left me invigorated, breathing better, relaxed, ready to shop a bit, and then clean the house (when I got home later)!
I drank plenty of water afterwards too! It’s wise to drink plenty of water after receiving healthful bodywork in order to flush out any toxins and other unnecessary accumulations released from your muscles.
Tiffiny performs Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy, and Trigger Point Therapy–finding points on my back that I didn’t even know were sore until she found them! As well, she does Esalen Relaxation Massage, Cupping, and Tui Na.
Tiffiny used the cupping on me in a different way than I’d ever had done before also. She actually used a silicone cup to massage my back and release contracted muscles, which improves blood and lymphatic circulation. I also learned from Tiffiny that the way she uses the cup during massage prevents the temporary red circles from forming that I’ve known cupping can often leave on the skin.
Tiffiny knew she had a knack and passion for the healing arts, and thus became a Licensed Massage Therapist (LMT) in 2009. I asked how long she had been performing massage therapy, where she’d went to school, and how long it took. I have often considered going to massage school myself, but I am older than Tiffiny and my hands are not as strong as hers! Perhaps I should stick to typing! Haha!
As well as all of the therapies previously mentioned, Tiffiny also practices Craniosacral therapy, which is a light pressure modality used to achieve deep, cellular level relief and may also help with depression, anxiety, and PTSD.
Tiffiny works on Triathlon athletes using sports massage, pregnant women with pregnancy massage, and chair massage. With Craniosacral therapy, she can do mouthwork both inside and outside the mouth, which can be good for headaches, migraines, and TMJ dysfunction.
If you’ve had a massage, you know that you can feel how muscles seem to get “knots” or bumps in them. I actually had a couple of these in my back, on my shoulders, that I hadn’t realized, but Tiffiny’s focused therapeutic bodywork on these really helped to loosen them. She also worked on my neck quite a bit, which has had a kink or catch in it for several weeks. It’s totally released now and my singing rehearsal today went exceedingly well! I’m so stoked about realizing the wonderful benefits that massage can have on my breathing and vocal ability!
When I asked Tiffiny about massage later, she told me that she is an “Ailment Alleviator” and I believe her! And my belief is built from experience. Tiffiny’s client centered approach, and focus that’s specific to your body is outstanding! I think you’ll be amazed!
If you have any body pain, do yourself a favor and book an appointment at Jade Tree Wellness Center Inc. with Tiffiny C. Rudkin, LMT. You’re going to thank me for referring you to her!
