Type of Treatments Available
Sports Massage – Enhancing athletic performance pre and/or post competition. Ideal for high performance athletes to help recover faster and reach peak performance.
Pre/Post Natal – Addressing the special needs of women as their bodies undergo the many dramatic changes that occur during and post pregnancy. From stress reduction to improved circulation, pre/post natal massage can make a significant difference to the wellness of a mother.
Lymphatic Drainage – Superficial light touch massage treatment directly addressing the lymph system and the client’s immune system. Lymphatic drainage massage can go where Deep Tissue and Swedish cannot – into swollen areas. The paradox is that such a superficial technique has such a deep impact.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) – Light touch approach that can create dynamic improvements in your life. Using gentle touch, starting with about the weight of a nickel, practionercers evaluate you for strain patterns. Then they use distinctive light touch techniques to release any restrictions they find. It releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction, and improve whole-body health and performance. Your body can only handle so much tension before the tissues begin to tighten and potentially affect the brain and spinal cord.
Reflexology – Application of gentle pressure to reflex points located on all parts of your feet. The feet reflect and are a mirror of the body. These points relate to the internal organs, glands, and structures of the body, so applying pressure on the reflex points can affect and normalize the functioning of the body.
Deep Tissue – Similar strokes to Swedish massage but with deeper pressure in order to address chronic muscle tension. This technique works at the deepest levels possible on muscle/tendon/ligament.
Neuromuscular (NMT) – Use light to deep pressure to trace the muscular system locating trigger points related to your nervous system.
Circulatory Massage – A massage technique that does not use any oil or lotion in order to help increase cardiovascular circulation with flowing strokes and compressive techniques.
Trigger Point Therapy – Locating tender points along the muscular system and applying direct pressure. The release of the trigger points helps restore normal range of motion and vitality.
Swedish Massage – Full body technique using quick and brisk strokes focusing on relaxation and increasing circulation throughout the body.
Graston Technique – Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization technique using stainless steel instruments to assess and treat soft tissue dysfunction. Typically treatment to specific tissue is applied for 10 minute intervals or less.
Cupping – Traditional Chinese technique that involves placing silicon cups on the skin to create suction in order to facilitate healing with blood flow, as well as the flow of “qi” in the body. Cupping can also help form new connective tissues and create new blood vessels in the tissue. Usually cupping techniques are combined with other massage modalities to enhance the client’s well being.
