Massage Therapy Treatments
Massage therapy is the manipulation of the muscles and tissues of the body using various techniques to aid in healing, relieve tension, increase circulation and enhance function.
contagious / infectious disease
under the influence of alcohol/drugs
uncontrolled high blood pressure
A relaxation massage looks at the body as a whole with the main goal to relieve stress. Light / medium pressure is used in a variety of techniques to release muscle tension and release toxins.
Therapeutic massage targets the deeper layer of muscles in the body. This treatment is used to treat specific areas and conditions of the body, aiding in tension relief and decreasing aches / pains. Trigger Point therapy is incorporated during this treatment if needed. Trigger point therapy is used to treat the taught bands of muscle that may refer pain to other areas of the body.
Prenatal massage uses a light - medium pressure to provide relaxation and aid in tension release from the stresses of pregnancy. It is offered during all trimesters.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage uses a gentle massage to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph from the body tissues. Since this massage aids in lymph flow, one should not receive this treatment if infection is present. Manual lymphatic drainage is used to aid in swelling reduction and to free the body of toxins.
Myofascial Cupping Therapy
Myofascial cupping therapy can be incorporated into a massage to decrease stagnation, increasing blood and lymph flow to the skin and muscles. This technique's benefits include maintaining range of motion, eliminating myofascial trigger points and reducing myofascial adhesions commonly found with repetitive movements. Marking may occur due to this improvement in blood flow and will decrease over time. Myofascial cupping is a modified version of Tradititional Chinese Medicine and uses manual vacuum cups that are set on the body and used to glide across areas with tension.
TMJ Massage is used to treat temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. The TMJ is the joint connecting the jaw to the temporal bones of the skull, located in front of each ear. TMJ disorders can exhibit symptoms such as popping, clicking, and locking of the jaw as well as potential pain in the TMJ / face / neck / ear / shoulders. This treatment focuses on relaxing the muscles of mastication including the back, neck, face, and scalp with intraoral work done with a gloved hand if required.
The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique. It is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process. Proper application provides muscles and joints with support without restricting their range of motion and it has the ability to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain and inflammation, prevent injury, optimize performance and promote good circulation and healing.
The Kinesio® Tape Is Applied During the Last 15 Minutes of Your Treatment Time.
It may also be booked as a stand-alone treatment.
Reiki is a form of energy healing that guides the ‘universal life’ (rei) force ‘energy’ (ki) to the recipient, replacing the old energy which is removed when it no longer serves them. This practice helps balance the energies in the body, bringing it closer to its natural frequency which allows for healing on all levels.
The practitioner’s hands are placed above the body or gently on it to help channel Reiki. It can be used to promote relaxation, ease discomfort and help one receive answers to what they’ve been searching for. Put simply, Reiki is used for whatever it is you are needing in that moment.
You are in control during a Reiki session. The wisdom of your being shares where it needs healing and the steps it’s ready to take/messages it’s ready to receive. Reiki will go where you need it most.
