Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage involves a variety of techniques designed to ease muscle aches and tension, improve muscle and joint mobility and promote relaxation. This type of massage also increases local venous and lymphatic return. This increase in circulation helps supply the skin and organs with more oxygen creating a relaxing effect on the body leading to improved sleep and digestion. A Relaxation Massage is generally a full body treatment. Relaxation techniques can also be integrated into a Therapeutic Massage or Pregnancy Massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage which is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia.  Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience chronic pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. It is also not uncommon for receivers of Deep Tissue Massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two. Deep tissue work varies greatly. What one calls deep tissue another will call light. When receiving deep tissue work it is important to communicate what you are feeling with your therapist. 

Pregnancy Massage

All of our therapists are trained in pregnancy massage.  Our focus is to meet the therapeutic needs of the client as she goes through the physical and emotional changes related to pregnancy.  As every pregnancy is different, every massage is customized to suit those needs and the therapist will modify treatment techniques and positioning based on the individual assessment of the client. 

We use the bodyCushion system for all three trimesters.  With this system a client is able to lie face down with her abdomen supported allowing the therapist to be more effective in addressing her low back and pelvic areas. Clients find this system very comfortable and relaxing.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an alternative medicine dating back over 3000 years, which involves the insertion of needles in the body. The needles used are as fine as hair and are inserted without discomfort.  Acupuncture can be highly effective for pain relief as well as preventative medicine, but also as a drug free treatment of symptoms and conditions. Acupuncture often achieves results that are long lasting.
