The benefits of this type of bodywork are broad and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, reduced swelling/edema, improved circulation, improved sleep, and greater flexibility. Relaxation massage is appropriate for all ages, from childhood to the golden years. This style utilizes light to moderate pressure.
Focused pressure is applied through a variety of slow techniques to release trigger points of chronic or acute problem areas. Rehabilitative massage is perfect for anyone with chronic injuries, strained muscles, TMJ syndrome, carpel tunnel syndrome, scoliosis, migraines headaches, whiplash, sciatica, surgical scarring, or other muscular discomforts caused by injury, overuse, or imbalance. The process will be deeply relaxing and comfortable, and the effects are profoundly transformative and long-lasting. This style utilizes moderate to deep pressure.
Sport massage is designed for people who engage in athletics or vigorous, repetitive activities. Utilized for decades by professional athletes and musical virtuosos, it has been proven to decrease the chance of becoming injured, reduce pain and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, speed the body’s recovery from exertion or injury, form greater kinesthetic awareness, and promote the body’s natural immune function. Sport massage is a worthwhile investment in your career longevity and quality of life.
Hot Stone Therapy
Smooth, mineral bath-heated basalt stones are massaged over stiff muscles and placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are warmed with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. Oils penetrate the skin more deeply with heat, allowing improved absorption and moisturizing more efficiently. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, rejuvenating… and warm!
*Not appropriate for those with neuropathy, diabetes, sensitivity to heat, or those who are pregnant.
