Therapeutic massage is the gentle manipulation of the muscles to help increase circulation, release toxins and help ease muscular tension. It can relieve pain and is a great way to reduce stress, giving you more energy and a positive outlook.
While you are pregnant, your body goes through many physical changes that can cause physical and emotional tension. Soothing massage can help you sleep better and boost your energy. You will be comfortably supported with pillows or cushions in a side-lying position during your massage. Your therapist can teach you self-care techniques to be used in between sessions. To receive prenatal massage, we ask that you be past your first trimester and that you have a release from your physician.
Oncology massage is designed to ease an already compromised body system. Your therapist will modify massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatments. Your massage therapist will ask a detailed health history and questions about your cancer and associated treatments. Your therapist will then tailor a massage session that will be beneficial to you.
Hot Stone Massage
In this comforting and healing massage, heated stones of varying sizes and weights are settled comfortably into the body contours. Oiled heated stones are then used in flowing strokes to melt tension throughout the whole body.
This type of massage uses basic Swedish style massage, with stretching and concentration on trigger point areas. Clients are given information about body mapping and self-care techniques.
Chair massage lets you enjoy the benefits of therapeutic touch with less time and expense. With this service, you receive massage over your clothes. Ask about bringing chair massage to your next event.
