We offer Customized Massages using a mixture of Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Sports Therapy Massage to best address the concerns and goals of our clients. We have listed short descriptions of some of the massage modalities we specialize in:
Our full body Swedish Massage utilizes long strokes and kneading to reduce tension, soothe sore muscles, and increase circulation to promote total relaxation.
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.
Some of the same strokes are used as in the classic Swedish Massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
Sports Therapy Massage
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.
This is a nurturing and relaxing massage designed for the Mother?To-Be. Individual attention is given by our specially trained and certified therapists to the mother?s comfort and stage of pregnancy. Positioning techniques are used to ensure safety and comfort of mother and baby.
Chair massage is a style of seated massage and great for people who are on the go. Typically a shorter massage, up to 30 minutes and focuses on your back, shoulders, neck and arms. While getting the massage your clothes remain on and doesn’t require any massage oil.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being.
