Whether it is to relax and revitalize or to re-align, our qualified massage therapists offer several techniques that can reduce muscle tension, improve circulation and relieve stress. Each type of massage offers a unique experience suited to your individual needs.
Myofascial Release is a safe and effective hands-on technique that involves applying sustained pressure into restricted fascial connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion. This type of massage is very effective for release of scar tissue, muscle adhesions and overall tension in the body.
Sports massage is good for athletes looking to improve flexibility, range of motion, overall performance or for anyone with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion. It can also be used during pre-event and post event training. This type of massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons.
The most common style in massage therapy. It is a full-body, therapeutic massage that is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins and improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
More intense than the traditional Swedish massage, deep tissue is used to target knots that cause chronic muscle tension. It also aids in reducing muscle inflammation and helps to eliminate scar tissue.
“Ashi” meaning foot, and “atsu” meaning pressure, this Japanese technique combines the enjoyment of a Swedish massage and the therapeutic benefits of deep tissue. Using bare feet, Ashiatsu typically includes stretching, stimulation and sedation of acupressure points and meridians. It heightens total physical, mental and spiritual awareness.
One of the oldest healing methods, Thai stretching is used to release tight joints, increase range of motion and reduce stress. With compression, it is a blend of yoga stretches, acupressure and energy work.
A natural, touch therapy treatment that is aimed to alleviate all pregnancy-related symptoms. Pre-natal massage is a safe and effective technique that offers a wide range of benefits including stabilization of hormone levels, reducing fatigue, and relieving muscle tension to benefit the mind and body during the duration of your pregnancy.
