- improves circulation
relieves aches and pains
- decreases stress levels
- improves mental clarity

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature ofÂ the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get tooÂ uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is common after the treatment and plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal ofÂ toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Sports Massage is designed for active people who engage in physical activities. Participating in fitness programs is harsh on the body and can often lead to both short and long term injuries. Sports massage enhances performance and prolongs an athletes career by helping to prevent injury, reducing pain and swelling in the body, relaxing the mind, increasing flexibility, and dramatically improving recovery rates. The techniques of sports massage are specific and tailored to the athletes' sport of choice, Focusing the massage on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive motions creates beneficial changes in muscle tone, strength, and longevity .The athlete develops kinesthetic awareness, which is the ability to navigate space and the awareness of movement.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques to release your trigger points. This process can be uncomfortable at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Medical massage is outcome basedÂ and the treatment is specifically directed to resolve conditions that have been diagnosed and prescribed by a physician. The therapist uses a variety of modalities duringÂ the treatment with intent to improve specific conditions, such as:
- Back Pain
- Carpal Tunnel SyndromeÂ
- Sciatic Symptoms
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Piriformis Syndrome
- Migraine / Tension HeadachesÂ
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
Shiatsu (finger pressure) is an Eastern method of body work. It is based onÂ holistic system of Traditional Chinese Medicine, where illness is thought to result from the imbalances in the natural flow of energy (qi) throughout the body.Therapists apply finger and palm pressure to energetic pathways (meridians) to improve the flow of qi. The pressure from the fingers or palms is continuous and rhythmic and feels more localized. Shiatsu may help with a number of conditions, such as
- Arthtritic pain
- Poor digestion
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than most other forms of massage therapy. The therapist uses their hands, knees, legs, and feet to move the patient into a series of yoga-like postures and stretches. Thai massage is like doing yoga without doing any of the work. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed during the session. A single Thai massage session will help you release stress and relieve pain, and help you function more effectively at work and home.
