Massage

Massage therapy treats many types of muscle pain, aches, stiffness and tension.  Consistent therapy sessions can help reduce the level of pain and discomfort as well as increase the range of motion in joints by increasing the flow of oxygen and blood in the body.  However, it is not only physical symptoms but also mental and emotional issues that can also be lessened by massage.  Many patients say they feel lighter, more energetic, and more peaceful after a massage.

 

We offer a variety of massage styles to encompass the full needs of our patients, whether they are looking to release tension and feel deeply relaxed or to address acute or chronic pain issues.  Our massage services include Swedish, Deep Tissue, Heated Bamboo and Prenatal..

Experience the power of compassionate and healing touch!

 
Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage provides relaxation by using long strokes that detoxify the body, soothe sore muscles, relieve tension, and stimulate circulation.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage uses firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Prenatal Massage

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling). It also reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension -- which aids in better sleep -- and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.

Heated Bamboo Massage

Be transported with Heated Bamboo Sticks that are used to roll out tension in the body.  Feel utterly relaxed with the added benefits of warming muscles, reducing tension, and increasing circulation and relaxation.

 
Integrated Massage Modalities

Other modalities can be incorporated into your massage to customize your experience such as Integrated Energy Therapy, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Cupping, and Reiki. Book your massage type and length above and then please send an email about which modality you would like to include.

Integrated Energy Therapy: 

IET is a gentle, hands on healing technique that helps to reduce stress, release trauma and to balance and empower yourself.

Cranial Sacral Therapy:

A gentle, non-invasive type of massage involving the cranial bones, spinal cord and sacrum that balances the flow of cerebral spinal fluid. It can treat many ailments including migraines, headaches, anxiety, PTSD, autism, fibromyalgia, concussions, nervous system disorders and more.

Cupping: 

Fixed Cupping involves creating a suction with the cup for 5-15 minutes. This can cause a mark to form depending on the amount of congestion in the area being treated. Moving Cupping is when oil or lotion is applied to the skin before creating a suction with the cup and moving it around the area. Both techniques work to loosen muscles, encourage blood flow and increase Qi energy. 

Reiki:

A Japanese technique for promoting relaxation and healing by working with your life force energy. It can treat minor ailments to major health concerns by releasing stress through laying on of hands.

Massage for Children

Massage is a wonderful stress-buster for children. It is soothing, relaxing and healing to help and assist children with development and sleeping. Through massage, they relax and their bodies quiet down. A gentle gliding stroke is applied to infants. As the child grows older, the massage grows with them to include work on the feet, fingers, and toes, and use of different types of strokes and techniques. 

We offer 15-20 minute massages for infants to age 9 accompanied by a parent in the room. Longer sessions can be overstimulating or even uncomfortable for a younger child with a short attention span. 

For ages 10-15, we offer a 30-minute massage accompanied by a parent in the room. Massage can help preteens and teens struggling with the growing pains of adolescence, relieve anxiety and can increase their feelings of self-acceptance and self-confidence during their formative years.

 

Teens ages 16-18 years old can receive 30-60 minute massages with or without a parent in the room depending on their comfort level. For athletic teens or those still experiencing growing pain, sports massage techniques and stretching can be beneficial in soothing their aches and pains. A relaxing massage is beneficial for high stress, anxiety or those struggling with health or psychological behavioral problems. A combination of both sports, stretching and relaxation can be applied as well for maximum benefits.
