Massage is widely recognized as an effective tool for treating a wide range of medical conditions and situations. It is an excellent complement to standard medical treatment with proven benefits for relieving stress, pain, and muscle stiffness; managing anxiety and depression, and treating sports-related injuries.
Our massage therapists offer four types of massage including deep tissue, Shiatsu, Craniosacral, and cupping (additional charge) that can be incorporated or added to your massage.
Deep Tissue: Deep tissue focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Shiatsu: This Japanese form of bodywork has roots in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Shiatsu addresses the meridians and acupoints throughout the body with kneading, pressing, tapping, and stretching techniques to address the full body and move Qi, or life energy.
Craniosacral: Craniosacral therapy is a gentle therapy that allows the body to create an internal environment for healing. By use of light pressure and holding techniques, the body is allowed space to let go of tension and internal fascia restrictions.
Cupping: Cupping is a 3500 year old China based therapy for reducing body pain. Cupping therapy includes the use of glass cups to create a vacuum on the body part which enhances circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids through tissues. This therapy can be added on to any massage or scheduled on its own.
