ALL massages are custom designed for you and your needs. Descriptions below are a guideline.
Relaxation (Swedish) Massage - 60 or 90 minutes
Unwind, release tension, and simply relax and indulge! You don’t need to do anything but soak it all in. By using methodical flowing strokes and muscle kneading (gentle or deep depending on your preference)
your body and mind are allowed to give a sigh of relief. A relaxation massage will help you sleep better,
lower blood pressure, reduce stress hormones, help with immunity and reduce anxiety and stress.
Orthopaedic Massage, Myofascial Release, Deep Tissue - 60 or 90 minutes
A focused massage that seeks to break the cycle of chronic pain and recurring muscle problems. The goal is to release shortened muscles, bringing them back to their resting length, then relaxing over-worked, exhausted muscles to bring balance. While this is often a "working" massage with client participation, relaxation techniques can also be incorporated and the depth and pressure of the work is always kept within your tolerance.
Sports Massage - 60 or 90 minutes
Whether you're a runner, golf, play tennis, walk or just threw the football around this weekend, Sports Massage will help increase mobility and flexibility, prevent injury, and allow you to recover more quickly. Sports and orthopaedic massage use range of motion testing; structural integration; myofascial release; active, passive and assisted stretching; deep tissue massage; and Gregorian® techniques to stretch and lengthen muscles, break up adhesions, and bring the body back into alignment to reduce future injury. A sports massage is usually an active massage requiring participation from the client. Bike shorts are suggested. Warming salves and other products are included in the treatment.
30 Minute Concentrated (Not recommended for new clients)
Tight on time, but need relief? Come in for a 30 minute massage concentrated on the areas that need it most. Don’t hesitate to call us at the last minute. If we can fit you in, we will.
