Our staff of massage and lymphatic therapists offers various styles of massage and bodywork as described below:
Muscle Release Technique℠ - Muscle Release Technique℠ is a unique repetitive use injury therapy that combines compression, extension, movement and breath to break up scar tissue, lengthen shortened muscles, restore muscle memory and provide relief from pain. During each session the therapist will provide education, bodywork, and stretches.
Integrated Bodywork - Our therapists will design a personalized session specific to your body's needs. Sessions will include multiple techniques such as Muscle Release Technique℠, Integrated Manual Therapy, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue and Trigger Point Therapy to help bring the musculoskeletal system closer to balance.
Swedish Massage – This slow, deep therapeutic massage will release chronic tension and relieve aches and pains, which will assist in increasing flexibility, circulation and improving posture.
Prenatal Massage - Massage therapy during and after pregnancy, combined with chiropractic care, can help to alleviate the many discomforts associated with your changing body. During your massage session, we will incorporate a variety of techniques suited to the pregnant mother such as deep tissue and stretching to lengthen contracted muscles and improve flexibility.
Graston Technique - The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as Instrument-Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM). It uses specialized instruments with a unique form of on-skin pressure application that is helpful for both acute and chronic soft tissue conditions. The technique allows the practitioner to identify areas of soft tissue compromise, including tight musculature, fascial adhesions and scar tissue. The general goals of treatment are to decrease pain while improving motion, flexibility and circulation to the compromised areas to allow for optimal healing and functional rehabilitation.
Reflexology - Reflexology uses stretches and acupressure techniques applied to the feet. This treatment stimulates reflexes throughout the body, helping to clear congestion, activate the circulation of energy and revitalize and balance the whole body. Reflexology is performed fully clothed and is a great option for individuals with physical limitations.
Cupping - Acrylic massage cups are applied to the skin using suction, increasing local circulation and helping to break up myofascial adhesions. Great for reaching deeper muscles without using deep pressure. “Cup kisses” are a result of elevated blood flow in the area and fade within a week or two. A 60 minute session allows multiple areas to be treated or incorporate it into a massage with a 15 minute add on.
Oncology Massage - Oncology massage is specifically tailored to individuals undergoing cancer treatment. Utilizing gentle techniques, oncology massage can help manage symptoms and side effects before, during and after treatment. The main goal is to ease the physical and emotional stress associated with cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Assisted Lymphatic Therapy - Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT) is a gentle, light touch, non-invasive technique which uses vibrational, light and electrical waves to decrease congestion and stimulate the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system, resulting in a reduction of toxins in the body. ALT is helpful for general inflammation, lymphedema, post chemo clearing, headaches, fatigue, Lyme Disease, breast and prostate health, as well as detox and cleansing for overall health.
