Massage Therapy

Massage IconTherapeutic Massage

 

Massage is the manipulation of soft body tissues (connective tissue, Muscle, tendons and ligaments) to enhance a person’s well-being and health.  Therapeutic Massage is used to rehabilitate the muscles and ligaments surrounding injuries or areas where there is chronic or constant pain, as well as reducing stress.  A treatment plan will be designed to the client to get and continue desired results.  This is the only massage that can be done as a 30 minute session focusing on one area of the body, spot specific, with the most pain.

 

Massage IconCustomized Massage

 

Every individual is unique and so is their journey to optimal health. Our therapist is trained in multiple modalities (techniques) that can be combined to create a truly unique experience. The 1 hour session can expand on the 30 minute therapeutic session by allowing more time for a specific area and it’s connecting areas, which lets the therapy effects hold longer. Or by focusing on multiple areas. Your therapist will discuss with you what is currently going on and will build a customized session to fit your needs.

Deep Tissue is a cross between Swedish and Therapeutic Massage in the way of techniques flow in the direction of the blood returning to the heart.  Deep Tissue is, however, a slow firm pressure focusing on realigning the deeper layers of muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue to release chronic muscle tension.  This massage focuses on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive movements.  Deep Tissue Massage is ideal for those who suffer from chronic pain, limited mobility due to repetitive movements, athletic training, and overuse.
