Massage Modalities


Therapeutic Massage

This is a relaxing style of bodywork.  Using a combination of strokes to help the body improve its circulation.  The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide ranged, and include relief from tight and sore muscles, tension, stress relief, inhanced mental clarity, greater flexibility, and overall well-being. 

 

Deep Tissue Massage

This is a style that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of muscle tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to repetitive motions, built up tension, and past lingering injuries.  Using slow strokes and deep finger and elbow pressure on contracted areas, this method is highly effective to help release those areas, and old patterns as well.  

 

Trigger Point Therapy

This is a style that focuses on stimulating and releasing trigger points in your body.  Trigger Points are tender areas of tension similar to accupressure points, except they occur in the belly of muscle tissue rather than along the energy pathways of the body.  Focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points.  It can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.  
 

Myofascial Release

This is a style of using sustained pressure into the connective tissue (fascial) which is the superficial layer of tissue that lies on top of the muscle.  When the fascia is tight, it can restrict us in many ways, leaving us feeling tight, and have lack of movement for certain activities. This helps to relieve pain, restore motion and provide better movement.  The use of very little lotion or oil is common.

Hot Salt Stones

This can be added to any massage.  Warm salt stones create an incomparable experience you will love.  Not only do you enjoy the warmth of the stones, but also get the benefits the salt offers.  Salt stones emit healthy, rejuvenating ions that create a feeling of cheer and well-being.  They offer a trace amount of concentrated minerals which are beneficial and healing to the body.

Geriatric Massage

This is a massage designed for the elderly.  This can help with blood flow and help create better circulation.  It can help to relieve pain, and help with range of motion and help for better movement and overall state of being and state of mind.  

Aromatherapy

Using essential oils during the massage as a healing modality.  Each aromatherapy oil has its own properties to help pinpoint a specific need.  

Your health and body are the mirror to your soul...Take good care of them
