We offer several modalities of massage therapy including:
Deep tissue massage
What it does: Designed to target each layer of tissue separately for ultimate tension relief.
What we do: We begin by using myofascial release techniques to target the fascia and work in to the top layer of muscle tissue to release adhesions, strip scar tissue, and activate origination and insertion site using trigger point therapy. We can then work deep in the muscles to elongate the muscle strands and create space between the muscle attachment sites. We may also find additional trigger points, fascial adhesions, and scar tissue here to strip out.
You’ll leave feeling taller, looser, and generally more relaxed.
What it does: Combines many deep tissue techniques with the movement of myotherapy and ischemic pressure to help relieve symptoms of nerve compression, chronic pain, misalignment, and structural issues.
What we do: While deep tissue pressure can be adjusted to suit your comfort level, Orthopedic massage therapy uses ischemic compression which is the long, steady application of heavy pressure to deprive the muscle of movement and force it in to a state of release. It’s an extremely effective therapy, but requires commitment from both therapist and client. Drink plenty of water before and after your session.
You can expect to experience some soreness in the days following your session that gives way to a feeling of space and length throughout the body.
Swedish massage therapy
What it does: It’s the perfect way to relieve stress and feel rejuvenated.
What we do: Not defined with pressure but with process. It can be delivered with whichever pressure meets your comfort level but the process is to work through the body with long smooth strokes, from origin to insertion point without necessarily engaging the muscles or utilizing trigger points.
Prenatal massage therapy
What it does: Reduces pain and anxiety during pregnancy.
