Therapeutic Massage

An integral component of your personal wellness program, massage offers therapeutic benefits according to your health history and treatment objectives to assist with rehabilitation, muscle/ joint pain and relaxation. 
Massage is the manipulation of the body’s soft tissue with specific techniques to promote or restore health. These treatments are proven to be suitable for everyone from children and pregnant women to the elderly.

Using hands, forearms and elbows to detect and treat problems in the muscles, ligaments and tendons in the body’s soft tissue. Massage can help restore health after a motor vehicle accident, sport injury, muscle sprain, repetitive motion conditions, emotional stress and much more. By using basic techniques, they can either relax or stimulate muscle tissue to increase circulation and promote healing in the body. 

Pregnancy Massage

​​Pre-Natal massages are performed using a special pregnancy bolster with hollowed out areas to accommodate your growing belly and keep you comfortable while switching to side lying when needed. Women with normal, low-risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from the variety of massage techniques offered, However, women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before treatment.

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).

In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension -- which aids in better sleep -- and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.


Therapeutic Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone massage is a unique therapy that involves the use of smooth, heated stones that are placed on your body. I also use the stones in the palms of my hands to massage the body. Typically made of basalt, the iron-rich stones retain heat. River rocks are typically used because they have become smooth over time from the river's current. The use of hot stones for healing dates back to when Native Americans warmed stones by fire to ease muscle aches and pains.

The penetrating heat and weight of the stones are said to warm and relax tense muscles so we can work deeper, more quickly. Used to help relieve pain and improve circulation, hot stone therapy has been documented to help with depression and anxiety in a non-invasive manner. Hot Stone massage is suited for people who have muscle tension but prefer a lighter massage. 


Dynamic Silicone Cupping

Cupping has been practiced for thousands of years in parts of Africa, Middle East, and Asia before becoming more mainstream in today's North America. The deep drawing effect of the suction helps bring to the surface any stagnation and toxins that your body has been holding on to. Cups may remain stationary and may also be moved around in a massaging effect.
 
Cupping may assist with hardened muscles, trigger points, tissue adhesions, poor or restricted circulation, scars, pain, lymphatic drainage (edema) and restriction of movement. Myofascial release is accomplished with the lifting and loosening of adhesions while assisting in the restructuring of unserlying myofascial bands. Its affects to the parasympathetic nervous system also allow added relaxation benifit to your treatment.

Beneficial for treatment of tendinitis, stagnate lymph and edema, constipation, sciatic discomfort, toxicity, headaches, plantar fasciitis, reduction of cellulite and athlete performance/recovery.
