Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy is a type of massage therapy that involves the use
of smooth, heated stones. The localized heat and weight of the stones warm and
relax muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure to those areas
without causing discomfort.
Aromatherapy Massage uses massage oil or lotion in conjunction with essential oils
(highly concentrated plant oils - we use doTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade
Essential Oils). During aromatherapy, you inhale these essential oil molecules or absorb
them through your skin. Any of these essential oils can be used aromatically, and there
are great benefits to using them this way. Numerous studies have investigated the effect
of aroma on reducing anxious feelings, alleviating stress, and improving mood.
Increase the Benefits with Frequent Visits
Getting a massage can do you a world of good. And getting massage frequently can do even more. Budgeting time and money for a massage at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and we'll work with you to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on
realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches
and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain,
leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Swedish Massage involves the use of hands, forearms, or elbows to manipulate
the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive
movement of the joints may also be part of the massage. The benefits of Swedish massage
include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation, decreased stress and
muscle tension, and improved range of motion.
Sports Massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics.
It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity, and maintain it in
optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.
There are three basic forms: pre-event massage, post-event massage, and maintenance massage.
Trigger Point Massage
Trigger Point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves
the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction
in other parts of the body. Trigger point therapy is sometimes regarded as one of a group of
treatment approaches called neuromuscular therapy or NMT.
Myofascial Release is a manipulative treatment that attempts to release
tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Connective tissues called fascia
surround the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body.
Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on, no-touch, and visualization
techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki means
"universal life energy" in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and
alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki touch
therapy is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage
therapy is used—to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.
Prenatal / Pregnancy Massage
Pregnancy Massage is the prenatal use of massage therapy to support the physiologic, structural, and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus.
