Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

Relaxation Massage

Our massage therapists service relaxation in the art of massage therapy. A relaxation massage is a soft technique used to stretch muscles passively and to promote circulation in the body. When the body’s energy is in a neutral frame then a true relaxation state can be obtained. Patients who seek time away from the stresses in life and want a chance to decompress love the relaxation form of massage therapy. Call for an appointment and try it today.

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a light-touch therapy shown to be effective in supporting the central nervous system so that your body can self-correct and heal naturally. By supporting the central nervous system and releasing restrictions throughout the body, CranioSacral Therapy is shown to bring about profound healing. And because it’s so gentle, non-invasive and virtually risk-free, children of all ages can benefit from this essential therapy. Lori Reinbold is a an advanced CranioSacral therapist and is available every week for appointments.

Therapeutic Massage

This is the typical massage that most patients look for when they need relief from pain, anxiety, and even depression. This method is a low force, short or long stroke massage that lengthens muscles in the anticipation of relieving stress within the body.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is massage therapy specifically tailored for the expectant mothers’ needs. It is also called pre-natal massage. The mother’s body must be properly positioned and supported during the massage using pillows and padding. Proper positioning ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby. Just ask for one of our talented massage therapists. They will be more than happy to assist you in pregnancy massage.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat helps tight muscles release.

The therapist uses traditional strokes of Swedish massage while holding a heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another. The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, or in the palms of your hand, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body.
