Swedish Massage

 

This is the traditional type of massage; uses slow, and rhythmic techniques. Excellent for increasing circulation and reducing stress. Decreases muscle tension and leaves you feeling relaxed.

 

Deep Tissue/Therapeutic

This uses t​he same techniques as Swedish massage, but uses deeper pressure to contact deeper tissues. Trigger point therapy is commonly used to eliminate "knots" in the muscle. The body often feels as though it has been through an intense work-out after this type of massage.

Pregnancy

 

Tailored specifically for moms-to-be, techniques address postural changes associated with pregnancy. A specially designed cushion allows moms to lie on their stomachs without harming the baby. Benefits of pregnancy massage include increased relaxation and decreased insomnia, stress reduction on weight bearing joints, fewer incidences of nocturnal calf cramps, and reduction of sciatica signs and symptoms.

Myofascial Release

This dry technique involves deep stretching techniques in order to break up adhesions and scar tissue, and return normal movement and functionality to the area. This technique is often used after an accident or trauma. Frictioning may also be used, and involves eliminating non-functional scar tissue, and replacing it with functional stability.

 

Lymphatic Drainage

​This type of massage uses very light, slow, and rhythmic strokes to encourage lymph return and circulation. Ideal for unblocking clogged lymph vessels (ie. swollen glands) and for those with swelling in the extremities. Due to the slow movements, half hour treatments usually involve only one area of the body (ie. neck, front of the thigh, or arm).

 

Note: patients who have undergone cancer surgery/treatment require doctor approval before treatment.

 

Sports

This type of massage is geared towards those with active lifestyles/activities. Focus is on stretching and vigorously treating the muscles involved in a particular activity. This is helpful in the prevention of strain/sprain injuries that can occur. Also available is specific event treatments; Pre-event massage focuses on preparing the muscles for the activity, by vigorously shaking/activating the muscles involved. Post-event massage focuses on stretching out and relaxing the muscles used, and flushing out toxins left behind in the muscles.
