Massage is the best gift you can give your body! Massage is not only a relaxing treat but is also a very effective way to help with muscle soreness and other body aches. Whether it be a sports injury, sedentary lifestyle, or general aches and pains, massage can help alleviate your tensions.
Relaxes the entire body using long gliding strokes to lengthen tissue and promote circulation and blood/lymph flow.
Similar to Swedish massage, however, uses more pressure to penetrate deeper muscles and tendons to relieve chronic muscle tension.
Hydrostone (Hot Stone)
Hot stones can be used to balance energy in the body and detoxify organs, but one of the most common uses for hot stones is to apply heat to tendons in order to relax the muscle belly without too much pressure. The heat also stimulates, relaxes, and helps with cramp management. The cold stones reduce inflammation and tone muscle. Using hot and cold stones together strengthens the immune system, increasing circulation and lymphatic flow.
Manipulates reflexes in the feet and hands that correspond to different organs and parts of the body. This can aid in balancing the bodies energies, improve nerve supply, and rid the body of toxins in a non-invasive way.
Using 5 grams of pressure (that of a nickel), this form of therapy focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column, and sacrum to release tension in the tissue that protects the brain and spinal cord. This helps headaches, TMJ dysfunction, emotional trauma, behavioral disorders in children, and chronic pain.
Myokinetic / Structural Therapy
Uses specific technical strokes to a muscle in movement in order to release bound facial/muscle tissue, therefore creating greater range of motion and function in the body. This can improve range of motion, joint functionality, increase performance, and eliminate or improve musculoskeletal disorders.
Uses goal oriented techniques to stretch and manipulate muscle tissue in a systematic fashion (compressions, range of motion, stretching). Reduces recovery time from injury, supports flexibility, affects central nervous system, and increases circulation.
