• Deep Tissue Massage

    Unlike massage used for relaxation, Deep Tissue Massage targets specific persistent muscular issues.  With a focused technique that applies deep pressure on the affected areas, it is designed to relieve the tension that often forms in muscle and connective tissue.

    Deep tissue massage has been proven very effective in the treatment of:

    • Chronic pain
    • Limited mobility
    • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
    • Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Postural problems
    • Osteoarthritis pain
    • Fibromyalgia
    • Muscle tension or spasm

     

    We will work closely with you and explain a customized treatment plan that addresses your particular needs.

  • Myofascial Release

    The body fascia may be regarded as a continuous laminated sheet of connective tissue that extends without interruption from the top of the head to the tip of the toes. It surrounds and invades every other tissue and organ of the body.

    An extremely mild and gentle form of stretching that has a profound effect upon the body tissues, Myofascial Release is a form of soft-tissue therapy that helps to restore motion and flexibility and eliminate pain.

    Do not let the gentleness deceive you. You may leave after the first treatment feeling like nothing happened. Later (even a day later) you may begin to feel the effects of the treatment.

  • FasciaBlasting

    When fascia is tight, it can torque and tighten joints and is often a pre curser to more serious issues such as straines, ligament problems, back pain, swelling, limited range of motion and more. Overall, tight fascia can cause headaches, full body aches and rob us of vitality.

  • Swedish Massage

    The most well-known form of relaxing massage, Swedish Massage uses firm yet gentle long strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints.

    Swedish Massage promotes general relaxation, increases circulation of blood and lymph, and relieves muscle tension. Swedish Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management.

  • Massage Cupping

    Cupping therapy has been used by healers for more than 5000 years.  On a deeper therapeutic level, it is very beneficial for many conditions such as high blood pressure, sciatica, edema, sports injuries, chronic headache, fibromyalgia and neuralgia.

    Benefits of cupping include:

    • Clears stagnation
    • Drains & moves fluids
