Massage

 

30-minute (Half Hour):  When you don't have time for a longer visit but NEED some relief! Also useful for multiple sessions in a week to address problem areas. (Variety of techniques may be used.)

 

Relaxation Massage: Long soothing strokes promoting circulation, stress reduction and relief in the superficial muscles.

 

Therapeutic Session:  Site specific work to address chronic or acute pain. Utilizes various traditional massage techniques as well as: Lymph Drainage, Myofascial, Body Insight, CranioSacral and Energy Work. Each session is designed to meet your specific needs.

 

Myofascial Release:  A safe and very effective technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This gentle and slow approach allows the fascia to elongate. As the superficial layers release deeper layers may be accessed.

 

Body Insight: This proprietary therapy contains two aspects.  The first aspect is the physical application of neuromuscular assessment and manipulation.  This deep tissue therapy focuses on providing treatment with out inflicting pain.  It provides changes in posture, flexibility and strength.  

 

The second (optional) aspect takes the body-mind connection into account recognizing how stress and emotion take hold in our bodies.  Different areas of dysfunction relate to specific emotions we experience, often this awareness alone can manifest positive changes.
