Available Massage Modalities
Swedish Massage-A system of long strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints.
Deep Tissue Massage-Releases chronic tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or across the grain of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
Trigger Point Therapy (also known as Myotherapy)-application of finger pressure to "trigger points" (painful irritated areas in muscles) to break cycles of spasm and pain.
Hot Stone Massage-a form of massage therapy that uses specialized stones called basalt stones. These stones hold heat, helping to create a deep tissue massage to work tight, knotted muscles and release tension. Hot stone massage is relaxing and is known to have some health benefits.
Pre-Natal Massage-shares many of the goals of a regular massage but is tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies. The aches and pains are so different, and so are the remedies. Not only can Pre-natal massage alleviate muscle strains and stress on your back, neck, and shoulders, it can also significantly reduce anxiety and serve as a supplement to complete prenatal care.
Aromatherapy Massage-a pleasant method for mental clarity, relaxation, stress and headache alleviation by using different essential oils.
Reflexology-a system of points in the hands & feet to correspound or "reflex," to specific areas throughout the body.
