About Massage

Massage is one of the oldest healing arts: Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use; the ancient Hindus, Persians and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments; and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching. As an accepted part of many physical rehabilitation programs, massage therapy has also proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as many millions will attest, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

Swedish Massage

Smooth & gentle body work that uses gliding, kneading, friction and various other techniques to promote circulation, reduce muscle tension and eliminate restrictions due to “knots” that develop during overuse of muscle tissue. This type of massage is recommended for those who are unfamiliar with body work or those who are just looking to relax & reduce stress. Oils, lotions, ointments and aromatherapy may be used in this bodywork. It is imperative to inform your therapist of any allergies to topical or inhaled products.

Swedish/Deep Tissue Custom

A combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Facilitated Stretching, Myofascial release and various other advanced techniques to address deep-rooted muscle tension and limitations. Deep Tissue is a moderately slow method, where the therapist applies firm pressure to areas of the muscle that have accumulated deposits or “knots”. These deposits accumulate in the taunt bands of muscle tissue and may have limiting effects on muscle mobility and contraction. Deep Tissue has been described as a “hurts good” sensation. Myofascial Release is a technique where the therapist applies gentle, sustained pressure to the connective tissue that surrounds the muscle belly. It works to reduce pain, restore motion and allow for further access to deeper sites of tension. Oils, lotions, ointments and aromatherapy are used in this bodywork. It is imperative to inform therapist of any allergies to topical or inhaled products.

The warmth from the stones will melt away muscle tension and relax the body for further bodywork. The therapist ensures that the stones are an appropriate temperature before application. To guarantee effectiveness, Hot Stones are offered in 90 minute sessions only. Oils, lotions, ointments and aromatherapy are used in this bodywork.

Cupping Therapy

An ancient Chinese practice that involves placing suction cups upon the skin to promote blood circulation as well as lymph flow. The suction draws the skin and the superficial portion of the muscle into the cup which releases impurities that could be dwelling in the area. Cupping applies negative pressure to the muscles by drawing them away from the body. This process loosens the muscle and connective tissue, encourages blood flow and is an effective treatment for high blood pressure. It is important to have a small meal prior to this session. Cupping will leave marks that may last up to a week. These marks result from the toxins & stagnation that have been pulled from the tissue. Oils, lotions, ointments and aromatherapy are used in this bodywork. It is imperative to inform therapist of any allergies to topical or inhaled products.

Cupping therapy is not be used during: Pregnancy, hemorrhages, use of anticoagulants, fractures, varicose veins, tumors, severe edema, moderate to severe heart disease or with individuals who are prone to bleeding.
