SERVICES

SWEDISH MASSAGE (Standard)
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
 
 
SPORTS MASSAGE

This technique focuses on breaking up knots in muscles and increasing circulation, flexibility, and a range of motions for improved athletic performance, quicker elimination of lactic acid, reduced risk for injury, and faster recovery. It is beneficial for those with repetitive use injury or those simply seeking to relieve muscle pain/swelling/tension to maximize their athletic performance and physical conditioning.

HEADACHE THERAPIES

This technique focuses on the head, neck, and shoulders to decrease pain and discomfort from migraines and tension-related headaches. 
Headache therapies provided regularly can significantly reduce the chance of migraine attacks and tension headaches by relaxing muscle spasms and trigger points.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology uses gentle to firm pressure on different pressure points in the feet, hands, and ears that correspond to specific organs and glands. It helps relieve stress and tension, improve blood flow, circulation, and breathing, and helps to improve the functioning of our body systems and organs. Reflexology is a good option for those looking to relax or restore their natural energy levels.

GERIATRIC

A gentle massage technique is applied to the soft tissues of the body and may include passive stretching. It helps maintain and improve overall health as we age and is beneficial for enhancing blood circulation, improving balance and flexibility, reducing arthritis pain, increasing joint mobility and range of motion, improving posture, and helping to relieve anxiety/depression. If you have a specific health condition, please consult with your physician before scheduling an appointment.

THERAPEUTIC   STRETCHING

Experience a head-to-toe assisted stretch for more flexibility, mobility, and performance. The benefits of PNF are to improve your range of motion. It supplements daily static stretching and helps athletes improve their performances. Not only does it increase flexibility, but it can also improve muscular strength.

VIBRATORY MASSAGE

       

Vibration is a powerful technique that is effective in increasing flexibility. It's applied to a specific area or the whole body. It improves muscular strength, increases the range of motion and blood flow under the skin, and decreases muscle soreness. 

WOOD THERAPY



Wood therapy is centuries old and originated in Asia. This massage technique utilizes wooden, handheld tools such as rolling pins and cups. It may reduce cellulite and wrinkles and increases lymphatic circulation, alleviating stress.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

Very light pressure is used with slow repeated and circular movements to stimulate the lymphatic system, which brings nutrients to cells and eliminates toxins from the body. This massage technique reduces swelling and fluid build-up on specific body parts (such as post-surgery). Several sessions are recommended to allow the body to respond to this technique and drain the lymphatic system faster.

ACUPRESSURE

Firm but gentle pressure is applied to acupoints on specific areas of the body for approximately 30 seconds to 2 minutes at a time. Acupressure is a good option for those looking for a natural form of pain relief instead of taking pain medication and may help with nausea, headache relief, muscle pain/tension, and cancer fatigue.

MYOFASCIAL RELEASE

Firm pressure is applied on specific body parts to stretch and elongate deeper layers of muscle tissue. Myofascial Release helps relieve pain caused by muscle tension and increases the range of motion and circulation. Regular treatments can help break up scar tissue, heal sports injuries, reduce chronic pain (such as low back pain caused by long periods of sitting), and improve the body’s natural alignment and posture.

CBD (CANNABOIDAL)



A CBD massage treatment typically involves CBD oil mixed with another carrier oil or cream before applying it to the skin. It contains both anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties and can penetrate through the skin for isolated pain management. A CBD massage could also help with sports massages and possibly help to lower healing time, allowing an athlete a lower recovery time.

MEDICAL

After an accident or chronic pain injury, doctors prescribe a medical-massage. It may include a combination of massage techniques to help treat health conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel, back and neck pain, sports injuries, work-related injuries, and more.

   PERCUSSIVE  MASSAGE  THERAPY        



This treatment, also known as tapotement, is a breakthrough in massage therapy that treats patients with soft tissue pain. It helps accelerate the growth of tissues and repairs them by providing strong and rapid, short-duration pulses deep into the body's tissues.

This technique uses more pressure than a Swedish massage to relieve tension from the deepest layers of your muscles and connective tissues. It can help relieve chronic muscle pain, muscle injury or imbalance, or anxiety. 

This gentle, relaxing full-body massage technique helps release muscle knots/tension and relieve minor pain. It increases oxygen levels in the bloodstream, improving flexibility and circulation, and reducing stress.
