Basic Swedish Massage
Relieves muscular tension and soothes muscle aches. Uses broad and long strokes, gentle stretches and resistance therapy and compression to improve blood and lymph circulation.
Deep Tissue Massage
Similar to Swedish massage, but deeper pressure. Beneficial in releasing chronic tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Basic massage techniques for children of all ages, from infant to teenager.
A holistic healing practice that uses light touch and gentle traction to balance the Craniosacral system in the body, which involves nerves, connective tissues and fluids of the cranium and spinal area. Facilitates healing on many levels, including the emotional body.
Various techniques that originate from ancient traditions that are used to balance life-force energy known as Chi.
Jin Shin Do
Uses verbal guidance, assisted stretching in a fully-clothed massage. The major goal is to release chronic tension, referred to as “armoring”, and to rebalance energy flow based on the concept of Chi.
Pre- and Post-Natal Massage
Massage specifically designed to address the discomforts and restrictions of pregnancy and post-pregnancy, including addressing issues some women have while nursing.
Addresses body, mind and spirit with the ‘laying of hands.’ Reiki, which means ‘spiritually-guided life force energy,’ promotes healing, stress-reduction and relaxation. Works with the chakra system to unblock congested chi.
Treatment of various symptoms and balancing of Chi, by applying finger pressure to specific points on energy pathways, or ‘Meridians’ in the body.
Facilitates the release of emotions or trauma that sometimes get ‘trapped’ in the body and manifest as physical and/or emotional symptoms. Addresses the theory of ‘muscle memory,’ in which the body may hold a memory of a trauma.
Trigger points are sensitive, hyper-irritable areas in muscles, which in time extend to related muscles, creating an overall sense of limited range of motion, pain and tightness in a specific area. TPR techniques are employed to release the trigger point and end the cycle of pain.
