At Heavenly Hands we assess our client’s individual needs and develop customized massage programs to meet those needs.

Note: Below is a list of modalities we are trained to offer our clients. Due to an overwhelming demand for her equine services, Kristin Hickey now focuses solely on equine body-work and refers all riders in need of a massage to Danielle Bennett at (408) 466-940. Her services and prices are listed below.

Available services for riders:

  • Sports Massage - techniques particular to athletes and highly active people, used to assist them in enhanced performance and quicker recovery from injury

  • Swedish - a popular style of oil massage that uses moves, such as long gliding strokes, that are aimed at relaxation and increased physical well-being

  • Aromatherapy - the use of pure essential oils (from various plants) in a massage to enhance relaxation or attain other benefits such as skin quality improvement

  • Acupressure - the application of light pressure with fingers on special points on the body to enhance health or lessen problem – these are the same points as used in acupuncture

  • Deep Tissue - work that focuses on the various deep layers of body tissue, often applied to long-term problem areas

  • Energy Massage - techniques to balance the body’s energy, founded on scientific information about the body as an electro-magnetic field

  • Foot Reflexology - a relaxing foot massage that is said to address the whole body since areas of the foot “reflect” conditions/areas of the entire body

  • Lymphatic Massage - deep massage work that flushes toxins out of the body

  • Myo-fascial Therapies (myo means muscle, fascia is a “lining” between skin and muscle, and around muscle bundles) includes advanced techniques designed for solving problems in each major area of the body: neck, shoulders, back, etc

  • Rocking & Shaking - keeping the body in a continuous rocking motion to release tight muscles and loosen joints

  • Shiatsu - a style of work originating in Japan that uses finger pressure and stretches for body relaxation; done on a floor mat without the use of oil

* Note: We service areas throughout the Peninsula and parts of the South Bay. Longer distance locations are available by arrangement, however a travel fee may be applied to locations more than 25 miles from Portola Valley.

Please remember that we have reserved a special time to work with you and your horse (usually well in advance).  Though we will attempt to fill your horse's time in cases of cancellation / rescheduling on short notice, it is not always possible to do so. In cases where a substitute cannot be arranged and to avoid a $35.00 per session Cancellation Fee, please notify us by telephone (leaving a message) or by email, at least 48 hours in advance of your horse's scheduled appointment time.
