One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep Tissue Massage / Trigger Point Therapy
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Hot Stone Massage / Cryomassage
Hot Stone Massage: Promotes relaxation, stress and tension relief, pain relief, and improved circulation. Not available for pregnant women. Clients with high blood pressure please consult doctor before making an appointment. Cryomassage: An effective therapy using ice to relieve acute or chronic pain, inflammation and post-surgical pain and swelling. (Must wait 6 weeks after surgery to receive a massage.)
Corrective Massage / Structural Integration
Corrective Massage Therapy is designed to correct or counteract harmful or undesirable muscle imbalances and body posture. When the repetitiveness of our occupation or activities starts to cause us pain it is because certain muscles are overused and the others are underused. The posture we are most comfortable in can limit our body's potential and full range of motion causing stress on the musculoskeletal system.
Sports massage will leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and relaxed. Due to the demands of daily living and the stresses we place on our bodies, many people put up with constant dull aches or niggling pains. Most of these are of muscular origin. Sports massage address’s these issues and resolves them quickly often with immediate effect.
Uses special adhesive sports tape to assist the muscles and help retrain the muscles to function properly. This medical grade adhesive tape (Latex free) can last from 3 to 7 days depending on wear and brand of tape used. This results in keeping the bodywork longer so that it becomes more effective.
Infant & Toddler Massage
Infants and toddlers are constantly moving and, infants in particular, move due to reflex more than intention. This constant movement has the same effects on a child's body as it does an adult's. Muscles and joints can get stiff and sore but being that a child cannot communicate like an adult, this discomfort can result in fussy and irritable children. Further benefits of infant and toddler massage include: relaxation, promotes better sleep, facilitates body awareness, boosts immune system, helps digestion and, possibly most importantly, relaxes parents.
Helps to regulate mood (anxiety and depression), relieves muscle aches, joint pains, improve labor outcomes, reduce swelling, reduce edema and helps with sleep. Consult Doctor before getting a massage, also must not be in first trimester.
Some couples enjoy being together every minute of the day. Some prefer each going their own way, then meeting for special experiences. Either way, a romantic couples massage makes a wonderful gift. The gift might be for a big event like a wedding or anniversary. It might be a gesture of thanks for an entertaining event or help during an emergency. It might be a reminder that, even with the arrival of a new baby or with the departure of a new graduate, time spent together is still important.
Used for relaxation and ailments this therapy is customized for each client. Please see therapist for available oils.
