Therapeutic/Deep Tissue Massage
My most common service, Therapeutic / Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Areas of concern are given extra attention. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of this work, brief communication check-ins may be necessary during the session to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that minor soreness is not unusual after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation. Speak with your physician to learn if massage is recommended for you.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Please note: While this service offers therapeutic benefits, for precision work that focuses on areas of special need (i.e. neck/shoulder tension, low back, hamstrings, feet, etc.), the Therapeutic / Deep Tissue Massage service is more appropriate.
