Types of Massage

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue is similar to relaxation massage. Done for at least 60 minutes, but no more than 120 minutes, the therapist uses very firm pressure to release deep muscles and facia that may cause referred pain or not be responding to more surface methods.

Watsu (Aquatic Massage)

Done in a warm 95 degree therapy pool.  You are cradled by the therapist and floated so you can relax into the water. Using slow, gentle movements, the therapist applies compression with thumbs, palms, elbows, to relax soft tissues and release tired muscles. This assisted water yoga movement is designed and adapted to leave your mind and body feeling relaxed and more flexible. Both client and practitioner are dressed in a swimsuit allowing ease of movement and flexibility. No oils or creams are used and you are required to shower beforehand to keep the pool free of contaminates.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is the method of using glass or plastic cups to create localized pressure by a vacuum. It is done on the massage table with oil for 30-60 minutes. It can be used to relax the facia, draw out toxins, increase blood circulation, and loosen cellulite & scars.

Pregnancy/Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy massage is a catch-all term for any hands-on massage during or after pregnancy (prenatal or postnatal massage). A pregnancy massage typically lasts an hour. The therapist uses specially designed pillows called bolsters to position a woman comfortably. Like in relaxation & deep tissue massage, the client determines their level of dress and massage lotion is often used. For a little more information, check out the Web MD page on prenatal massage

Sports massage

Sports massage is done primarily to aide in the release and healing of muscles and tendons. It is also used to treat chronic and referred pain from injuries. Many types of massage are combined for a custom tailored massage specific to each client's needs.

Hot Stone Therapy

Hot stone massage therapy promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. It is done on the massage table with oil for 30-90 minutes. The direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers with less intensity. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

RockTape/Kinesio Tape

RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance. It lifts the skin away from the soft tissue underneath, which allows more blood to move into an injured area to accelerate healing and recovery. Rocktape is a natural-hybrid product and consists of 97% cotton, 3% nylon and uses no drugs. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic acrylic based adhesive and contains no latex.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is done on a specialty massage table with the client in varying degrees of dress, depending on the client's comfort level. At least 30 minutes, no more than 120 minutes, it offers versatility for newcomers as well as those familiar with massage. Massage lotion is used to gently relieve spots of tension and provide a sense of wellness using relaxing touch.
