Deep Tissue

Our Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury.

What one calls deep tissue another will call light. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling to your therapist.

Swedish Relaxation

Swedish massage to help in reducing pain and stiffness. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation. Feel your tension melt away as you drift into a state of tranquility and peace of mind.

Craniosacral

Discover the benefits of a Craniosacral massage, which aptly starts in the cranium and concludes in the sacrum. Craniosacral massage is a subtle form of therapy that can be used to cleanse and purge the body of old illnesses and traumas. Your therapist will use gentle touch and movement to release accumulated stress and bring your body back into balance. During a Craniosacral massage, the therapists will feel a very subtle rhythm that is present in your body's tissue, created by the circulation of the liquid that surrounds the brain and spinal column. Tension anywhere in the body disrupts this cranial rhythm. By working with the cranial sacral system, restrictions are released and the body is relaxed into a general state of well-being. A craniosacral massage can strengthen your body's ability to take better care of you. It also can help alleviate a range of illnesses, pain, and dysfunction. Embark on your journey to a balanced restored you with this treatment.

Prenatal

Pregnancy Massage
Expecting a new addition? Pamper yourself with our pregnancy massage. Pregnancy Massage, also called Prenatal Massage, is specifically designed for the expectant mother. This light massage assists with lower back pain, cramping and water retention, and sciatica pain. It can improve recovery time and reduce connective tissue damage after birth. Some other discomforts Prenatal Massage may help to alleviate include:

  • Sloppiness” in the lower extremities- During the second trimester the connective tissue begins to soften under the influence of relaxin, a female hormone secreted by the corpus luteum that helps soften the cervix and relax the pelvic ligaments in childbirth. This can start to create uncomfortable joint “sloppiness” in the lower extremities.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be caused by or exacerbated by fluid retention which is common in pregnancy.
  • Edema- Edema, or swelling from excess accumulation of fluid, is also common due to fluid retention. Most common in the legs, it is likely caused by the impingement of the lymph vessels from the postural shifts of the organs during pregnancy.
  • Low back pain- Back pain can start from the strain of weight and postural shifting.

Prenatal massage is done with slow strokes and without deep pressure, much like a Swedish massage would be done. Modifications to the massage are done as individual patients need.  Care is taken to ensure the mother-to-be is as comfortable and relaxed as possible.  The benefits of the massage include relaxation, and decreased edema and swelling. Patients also have noted an overall sense of feeling “better” as well as a decrease level of pain and discomfort in general.

Hot Stone

Ever feel like the weight of the world rests on your shoulders? With our Hot Stone Massage that feeling will slip away as you are caressed and stroked with heated stones placed appropriately on your body. As the hot stones are placed along your back you’ll feel your stress and tension begin to fade as the gentle strokes and heat melt you into a state of relaxation. Hot stone massages are offered at minimum of 60 minute intervals.

Trigger Point/NueroMuscular

Do you suffer from chronic pain or headaches? A trigger point massage may help to alleviate your discomfort. This massage involves deactivating trigger points, or hyperirritable spots that cause pain located in taut bands of muscles fibers. These points of pain are called trigger points because they "trigger" a painful response. A trigger point is more than a tender nodule in the muscle. It affects not only the muscle where the trigger point is located, but can also cause "referred pain" in tissues supplied by surrounding nerves. Trigger point massages can be used to treat chronic pain and tension, such as headaches. End your pain and discomfort; book your trigger point massage today.
