Massage is an excellent method for improving overall health and musculoskeletal efficiency. Massage has a number of beneficial effects on the body and the mind. Some of these include removal of toxins that can build up in the muscles of the body, increased circulation, and increased flexibility in not only the muscles, but also the connective tissue within the body. 

We offer the following forms of massage:

Weight Loss (Lymphatic) Massage - The Lymphatic system’s job is to detoxify bodily fluids before they are circulated into the blood stream. The Lymphatic system moves the fluids through the body and then to the liver. Toxemia and swelling is a result of the Lymphatic system not working properly. Lymphatic massage reduces muscle swelling, which increases blood flow, which in turn supports proper Lymphatic system functioning.

 

Relaxation (Sweedish) Massage – The goal of a relaxation massage to is relax you. This type of massage is gentle and less intense that some of the other styles. The therapist gently works the upper layers of the muscle tissue to increase blood flow inducing relaxation. Relaxation massage is a total experience as it is preformed in a dim setting, with candles and sometimes with scented oils.

 

Rehabilitative (Myofascial Release) Massage - Myofascial release involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions. The massage relaxes the contracted muscles and increases venous and lymphatic drainage. Myofascial release treats somatic dysfunction and relieves the accompanying pain and limited range of motion.


Sports Massage — Sports massage works on the connective tissue and deep muscle structures. The massage is applied using hard and deep strokes, combined with finger pressure. Sports massage is specifically designed to increase flexibility and prevent injuries. It is specifically designed for the types of injuries obtained during athletic activity.


Warm Stone Massage – Warm stone massage is a unique approach that uses warm river stones in strategic spots to relax the muscles and increase circulation. Combined with manual massage, this treatment is guaranteed to cure what ails you. The result is fresh oxygenated blood flow into the muscles, that boosts energy levels.

 

Deep Tissue Massage - Deep tissue massage involves more intense muscle manipulation, but offers proven healing that can restore mobility and relieve chronic pain. Unlike most traditional massage that promotes whole-body relaxation, deep tissue massage is often used to target specific trouble spots after an accident or injury as well as those suffering from conditions like fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis that can cause achiness, inflammation and limited ease of movement.  Chronic pain, muscle spasms and tenderness during recovery after an accident can all be effectively treated with therapeutic deep tissue massage.

Deep tissue massage works by breaking down muscle adhesions that often build up after an accident or are the result of a chronic illness.  By applying intense, controlled pressure and friction to an afflicted area across the grain of the muscle, deep tissue massage relaxes rigid tissue and relieves the pain associated with stiff muscles, ligaments and tendons.  Deep tissue massage may cause some discomfort and therapists encourage their clients to keep them informed about their comfort level and pain tolerance during deep tissue therapy.  Therapists may encourage their clients to apply ice to tender spots following a deep tissue massage.  Some soreness the day after a deep tissue massage can be expected, though the discomfort should pass in a day.

 

Pregnancy Massage - Attending to the unique needs of expectant mothers is the goal of every pregnancy massage.  Our certified pregnancy massage therapists are specially trained to tailor their massage techniques to help alleviate common pregnancy complaints and to protect both mother and child during the massage. 

Pregnancy massage is unique in its application.  During the massage, the expectant mother is carefully supported by cushions and pillows in order to provide superior comfort and to protect her and the baby from strain or injury.  Pregnancy massage is especially gentle, and deep tissue techniques are never used as a safety precaution.  Many areas of the body are avoided during pregnancy massage to protect mother and child and extra attention is given to areas of the body that are particularly affected by pregnancy, like the feet and back.  

The benefits of pregnancy massage are numerous.  The gentle kneading massage can be supremely comforting both physically and emotionally to an expectant mother, and the psychological benefit itself can be quite therapeutic.  In addition to stress and anxiety reduction, pregnancy massage can help reduce expectant mothers’ common aches and annoyances, like swollen ankles and lower back pain.
