Types of Massage Blended Into A Therapeutic Massage

Recently due to the financial effects of COVID19 and due to difficulty staffing, we have made the hard decision to downsize. As part of the reduction, Ashley will be moving into the office at the end of the hall to make room for new building tenants and for the sake of scheduling and keeping things simple will be moving to offering one customizable session option. If there are specific needs or requests, please feel free to request them in the notes box when scheduling your appointment online so that she may be prepared at your appointment time for any special needs.


Neuromuscular Therapy


No one should have to live with chronic pain, but prescriptions and surgeries can’t always fix the problem. Neuromuscular Therapy, or NMT, addresses pain that is caused by nerve compression, postural issues, repetitive strain, inhibited circulation, tender muscle points, and more.

By balancing the neuromuscular system in targeted areas, NMT aims to correct posture and provide relief from stress and tension that causes pain and limits range of motion.​

Neuromuscular Therapy is a medical massage performed by our licensed massage therapists. This soft tissue manipulation is used to treat the source of your pain within the muscular and nervous systems, so you can feel real, lasting relief long after your massage is over.


Prenatal Massage


The second and third trimesters of pregnancy can be difficult, whether it’s your first or your fifth baby. Regular daily activities can become demanding or even painful. Sleep can be hard to achieve. Prenatal Massage can help relieve some of the physical and mental stress caused by the sudden changes and new challenges you’re facing during this time.​

Enjoy a quiet room with tranquil lighting in a luxurious spa environment. Lay comfortably on your side, supported by pillows, and allow a licensed massage therapist to gently work the strain and tension from your tired muscles.

By releasing this stiffness and discomfort, you’ll leave feeling stronger, more limber, and totally rejuvenated.​

*Clients of the Prenatal Massage must be at least 12 weeks along.*


Reflexology


Specific points on the feet, hands, and ears are believed to affect the performance of various parts of the body.

Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to each of these points to improve overall health and bodily function. It is often used in addition to medical treatment for various diagnoses.​

Your licensed practitioner will use his or her hand, thumb, and fingers to introduce pressure to different parts of your extremities according to the reflexology map.

Careful attention may be given to particular areas associated with physiology that might be troubling you, causing pain, or not performing well. In addition to the wellness benefits that are believed to exist, Reflexology is a soothing and enjoyable massage for the feet, hands, and ears.


Swedish Massage


Enjoy the full-body application of light to medium pressure for a relaxing stress-management experience in a spa-like environment. Each muscle group is targeted and soothed, gently ridding your body of accumulated stress and tension within your musculature.


Your licensed massage therapist will use deliberate movements to help flush metabolic waste from your muscles. Light, assisted stretching is incorporated to help loosen and relax your body as stiffness and pain melt away.


Add calming Aromatherapy, Real Time Pain Relief, a Sugar Foot Scrub, or Cupping to enhance your massage and leave feeling completely renewed. Swedish Massage can be enjoyed by both individuals and couples who want to enjoy a unique and rejuvenating bonding experience with their best friend or significant other.


Deep Tissue Massage


Many people experience recurring stiffness and tension in certain areas caused by poor posture or strenuous daily activity. Deep Tissue Massage utilizes medium to deep pressure over your entire body to relieve muscles and tendons of chronic tension.

​By targeting specific areas that absorb most of the strain and stress throughout the day, your licensed massage therapist will work to alleviate conditions like discomfort, muscle spasms, and tightness that can inhibit motion.

Because pressure is applied to reach deep into the musculature, you may feel some soreness during and immediately following your massage.

Add Enhancements like Aromatherapy and Real Time Pain Relief to your massage for a total relaxation experience. Deep Tissue Massage can be booked for individuals or couples who wish to share a rejuvenating experience with their best friend or significant other.


Hot Stone Massage


Hot Stone Massage is a type of massage that utilizes heated stones and Swedish massage techniques to achieve a comfortable release of stiffness. The warm stones can help improve circulation and are comforting to those who might get cold easily when draped for a massage.​

Basalt river stones are heated to a controlled temperature using a specialized stone heater and placed at specific points along your back, arms, legs, and abdomen.

As the warmth from the smooth stones penetrates your soft tissues, your muscles relax, allowing your licensed massage therapist to reach deeper with less pressure to relieve tension from your musculature.

He or she will also hold the stones to provide heat and soothing pressure while giving your massage.
