Massage Therapy Services
We offer a wide variety of massage therapy treatments designed to provide maximum pampering and relaxation. Massage is a great way to unwind and relive tired muscles and improve healing after injury or medical procedures. We offer both light and deep pressure massages to fit your health goals. If you are unsure which treatment is best for you, our licensed massage therapist can make a recommendation.
The types of massage we offer include:
Hot Stone Massage – a specialty massage where therapists use smooth, heated stones as either an extension of their hands or by placing them on your body. The heat is both relaxing and warming for tight muscles.
Pregnancy Massage – while posture changes during pregnancy put stress on the back and joints, pregnancy massage is specifically designed to alleviate this pressure. We provide light and moderate pressure to leave women feeling relaxed.
Relaxation Massage – Gentler than a Swedish massage, a relaxation massage is designed to calm the nervous system, promote a sense of well-being, improve blood circulation and stimulate the body’s lymphatic system.
Sport Massage - a physical treatment used on the neuro-musculoskeletal system, sports massage treats pain and disability. The massage uses kneading and manipulation of muscles as well as joint mobilization and manipulation.
Swedish Massage – using five styles of long, flowing strokes, the Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness. The first stroke styles are sliding, kneading, rhythmic tapping, friction and vibration/shaking.
Therapeutic and Neuromuscular Massage – Alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasms and stress with moderate to deep manipulation of the soft tissue. We use a variety of massage techniques to leave patients feeling relaxed and revitalized:
- Muscle energy technique – involves stretching musculofascial tissues to achieve normal length in a shortened postural muscle
- Myofascial release – breaks the bonds within the fascia and opens up bound fibers to allow circulation to return to the area
- Trigger point release – compression and release of pressure on a specific point of hyper-iritable tissue to give rise to referred pain and tenderness
