Massage is a powerful therapy for both preventative and rehabilitative health care. It is preventative in that it addresses emerging pain patterns before they become chronic, and rehabilitative in that it can accelerate recovery from injury or surgical intervention. Massage is ideal for stress reduction, headaches, low back and shoulder pain, fatigue, and muscle strain as well as athletic related injuries such as knee, hamstring, and ankle strain.
Massages We Offer
Therapeutic – A general term that describes any type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem such as frozen shoulder, sciatic, lower back pain, etc.
Swedish – The most common and popular massage therapy with the primary goal of relaxing the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.
Deep Tissue — Similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia.
Pre-Natel — Bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. The gentle, noninvasive approach of prenatal massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labor, and give her nurturing emotional support.
Body Firming — This focuses on the specific areas such as thighs, abdomen, and arms to promote circulation of dissolution and removal of fatty tissue through increased circulation and blood flow using Cyprus and Grapefruit Essential Oils.
Refreshing Cold Stone Allergy & Sinus Relief– This is a very specialized face, neck, and scalp, massage to help relieve the high pressure and congestion of seasonal allergies. This includes aromatherapy with eucalyptus, ice cold stones, and massage techniques to drain the congestion through out the head and neck. (This massage is NOT for anyone who is sick and has congestion. This is strictly for those suffering with allergies and not carrying anything contagious.)
Oncology Massage— Modifications of existing Swedish massage technique to safely work with complications of cancer treatments. The positive benefits of oncology massage varies from relaxation, mobilization of scar tissue and pain reduction.
Myofascial Release— Is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the muscle fascia (connective tissue) restrictions to eliminate pain and restore range of motion. Trauma, inflammation, illness and/or surgical procedure can create fascia restrictions that produce tension in muscles. Each treatment is performed directly on the skin without the use of oils or creams. This allows the therapist to detect myofascial restrictions and apply the proper amount of pressure to facilitate release of the fascia
