Swedish Massage:
Swedish Massage is the gentle manipulation of the soft tissues of the body. It consists of long flowing strokes that relax muscles, increase circulation, and remove metabolic waste products. This therapy facilitates the relaxation response and brings about a sense of deep relaxation and well being.

Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep tissue techniques penetrate deep into the muscle tissue to alleviate trigger points, soften chronically tight muscles, break up scar tissue, and promote soft tissue healing. Therapists will evaluate the tissue and progress slowly into the deeper layers of muscle to avoid unnecessary pain or muscle armoring.

NeuroMuscular Therapy:
NMT is a scientific approach to muscular pain relief that works to balance the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. This therapy enhances the function of joints, muscles and biomechanics. It examines 6 physiological factors that can create or intensify pain patterns. The 6 factors are ischemia, trigger points, nerve entrapment, postural disorders, nutrition and emotional well-being. Specific massage techniques and stretching are used to mitigate the painful patterns.

Myofascial Release:
MFR gently stretches and mobilizes the connective tissues (muscle and fascia) in the body. This connective tissue immobilization is often the cause of pain, restricted movement, postural distortions etc. This work is very effective for improving circulation, decreasing pain and spasms, reducing adhesions, and increasing movement throughout the body.

Acupressure:
Acupressure is an ancient Asian healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin and stimulate the body's immune system to self heal. When stimulated, these points relieve muscular tension and promote the release of endorphins.

Energy Balancing / Reiki:
This modality focuses on the flow of life energy through the body. Using traditional patterns of hand positions resting on or just above the body without pressure, this work helps to unblock energy and create an environment of wellness through which healing can take place.

Craniosacral Therapy:
CST is the gentle, noninvasive manipulation of the craniosacral system to free restrictions and imbalances of the brain and spinal cord. The craniosacral system consists of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord and includes cerebrospinal fluid and the bones of the cranium and sacrum. This very gentle technique assists in promoting good nervous system health, while reducing the negative effects of stress and enhancing resistance to disease. CST is a very effective treatment for migraine headaches and some types of back pain.

Reflexology:
Reflexology is a method for relaxing tension by stimulating reflexes in the hands and feet. It is a science based on the principal that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all of the glands, organs and muscles of the body. Stimulating these reflexes properly can help to maintain the health of these organs, glands and muscles.

Sports Massage:
Sports Massage is the use of various techniques that focus on improving the athlete's performance while preventing injuries. This therapy is scheduled on a regular basis as part of the training regimen and specific techniques are applied to the major muscle groups stressed in the sport.

Hot Stone Massage:
This type of massage therapy uses the natural healing properties of stone. The therapist uses smooth, natural stone that is warmed in steaming water. The stone, with massage oil, is used to massage and lengthen the large muscles of the body. The heat from the stone enhances the relaxation effect of the massage. During the massage, hot stones are placed on certain areas of the body (such as the low back) to allow the heat from the stone to deeply penetrate the muscle tissue. This wonderfully relaxing experience is especially popular in the colder months

Massage during Pregnancy:
During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes tremendous changes, which can result in a number of uncomfortable conditions. The overall goals for pregnancy massage are to help minimize stress, promote relaxation, and prepare the muscles for childbirth. Specific techniques can also help to relieve other particular physical conditions.

Massage/Facial Combo:
This 90 minute treatment consists of approximately 50 minutes of massage and 40 minutes of facial rejuvenation. The massage is your choice of technique. The facial starts with hot steam towels infused with aromatherapy; then a cleanser is applied and removed. The majority of the time is spent on specific facial massage techniques designed to relax and rejuvenate. The session is finished with a mask. A wonderful choice if you are looking for that extra bit of pampering.

Home Visits:
If you would prefer not to travel after your massage, we can arrange to come to you. Our therapists will travel within 20 minutes of the office and bring our table and supplies. We consider this a premium service and charge more because of travel time to and from the office.

Chair Massage:
Chair Massage is a great introduction to massage therapy because sessions are usually shorter (10-20 minutes) and clients keep their clothes on. This therapy is also perfect for clients who work locally and can come in on their lunch break.

We can also come to your workplace and perform chair massage for staff or employees. Please call the office for more details on Workplace Chair Massage.
