Massage Therapy Services

Swedish / Relaxation Massage

The long fluid strokes of a Swedish Massage calms the body & mind; reducing stress and tension while increasing circulation and lymph flow.

Deep Tissue Massage

During a Deep Tissue Massage, the therapist works into the deeper, underlying muscles and connective tissue to break apart adhesion or knots that cause pain, discomfort and limited range of motion.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy is used for the treatment of trigger points. A trigger point is an adhesion or knot in the muscle and surrounding tissue that is compressing a nerve or nerve ending. This can cause pain, numbness or tingling sensations to radiate along the nerves’ pathway. Trigger points are a common cause of tension headaches and sciatic pain and are easily remedied by the application of neuromuscular therapy.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is used to treat and prevent sports related injuries and post-workout/post-event soreness. Sports Massage is also used by athletes to enhance their performance.

Myofascial Release 

Myofascial Release Massage provides a gentle approach to relieve pain and discomfort. (For Myofascial Release sessions, schedule your appointment with William.)

For expecting mothers, Prenatal Massage helps to reduce stress and ease some of the discomforts that are accompanied by pregnancy, such as low back pain and swelling of the feet & hands.
