Relaxation Massage 

 Many people are under the impression that relaxation massage is a luxury, however there are many necessary benefits to relaxation massage, even if you don't have any particular trouble spots. Relaxation massage will improve circulation, and decrease the amount of stress hormones in your system. Massage also increases the levels of your feel good hormones dopamine and serotonin, and decrease tension in your muscle

Deep Tissue Massage 

 We employ deep tissue techniques for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, we can access deeper layers of the soft tissue. We start superficially and ease into the depth of the muscle to help improve movement. 

Prenatal 

 Pregnancy causes an incredible change in a woman's body, and the increased levels of the hormone relaxin in the body causes the body to shift and and muscles to stretch. During the time of change, massage can help relieve tension and decrease recovery time after delivery.  

Hot Stone Therapy 

We use heated flat stones of varying sizes to massage the body. The stones relax the muscles allowing the massage therapist to work deeper into the muscle.  Stones are heated in hot water to the right temperature, coated in oil are then used directly in the hands of the therapist delivering various massaging strokes. 

Reflexology 

Reflexology is also known as acupuncture without needles. A form of the practice dates back to ancient Egypt, but only became modernized and developed in the 20th century. The basis behind it is that the reflexes of the feet are a mirror image of all the organs, glands, and parts of the body. It creates a deep flushing of toxins, increases circulation, and breaks up congestion in organs caused by inflammation. Treatments can relieve chronic pain and headaches, support women's health, decrease general fatigue, and speed up recovery from surgery and injuries. 

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. 

Craniosacral Therapy  

Craniosacral therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating the functioning of the craniosacral system—comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. CranioSacral therapy is most often utilized to treat neurological disorders including ADHD, autism, and acute stress reaction. 

Cupping 

Cupping Therapy is a technique that comes from Eastern medicine. Plastic cups are placed on the area, and either left in place or dragged to release facial restrictions. There are many benefits to cupping, including reduction in pain and inflammation, and improved circulation, assisting in flushing of toxins. Cupping is no more painful than a regular massage, however it is important to note that marks are often visible after a treatment. These marks are not bruises or broken blood vessels, but simply old, stagnant blood that has been pulled to the surface. They are not painful, and will fade within a few days. It is extremely important to drink water after treatment, to avoid headaches and post treatment pain. 

Myofascial Release 

Fascia is located between the skin and the underlying structure of muscle and bone, it is a seamless web of connective tissue that covers and connects the muscles, organs, and skeletal structures in our body. Muscle and fascia are united forming the myofascia system. Injuries, stress, inflammation, trauma, and poor posture can cause restriction to fascia. Since fascia is an interconnected web, the restriction or tightness to fascia at a place, with time can spread to other places in the body like a pull in a sweater. The goal of myofascial release is to release fascia restriction and restore its tissue health. 

Trigger Point Therapy 

Trigger Points, also known as Myofascial Trigger Points, often occurs in strained muscles, and cause referral pain that spreads to other seemingly unrelated areas. Treatment of these points requires a specialized knowledge in how they form, and how they respond to pressure. Treatments are often slow, using moderate to deep pressure in specific areas. Once released, there is often an increase in range of motion, and a decrease in chronic pain. 

Sports Massage Therapy 

Whether you are a high performance athlete, or simply trying to stay fit, sports massage provides your body the care it needs to handle whatever you ask of it. Using deep pressure and either stimulating or soothing techniques, it can be tailored to either pre or post event, or to simply maintain muscle tone and elasticity between workouts.  

Lymphatic Integration 

Lymphatic integration is used to encourage lymph to flow uninterrupted through the Lymphatic system. Not to be confused with Lymphatic Drainage, this treatment will encourage a decrease of inflammation and swelling caused by slower disrupted lymph circulation. 

Breast Massage 

Breast Massage is performed by a specially trained therapist who has developed the skills to massage such a sensitive area. These techniques allow full access to the pectoral muscles, without the barrier of a sheet or towel. This is especially beneficial for those who have been injured, or had any type of surgery in the area.  Breast massage is only done with full consent of the client, after signing a consent waiver. 

Massage With Essential Oils 

Essential oils have historically been used to prevent illness, soothe aches and pains, and promote overall well being in an all natural way. They have numerous benefits, and many have antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, and antibiotic properties. In massage, they can be applied topically, with a carrier oil, to reap all the benefits the oil can provide. We use pure Doterra oils during the massage, and as an added perk, you can take home a 10 ml roll on bottle of the same oil to use between appointments.
