performance massage

This session includes more focused attention on problem areas. A true therapeutic and relaxation combination which includes reaching much deeper layers of muscle tissues and the inner sections of thick muscles.

 

myofascial release

Myofascial release (MFR) is a technique that incorporates a firm but gentle gliding pressure to improve the circulation and lymph movement, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility, create relaxation and release the connective tissue that is within the muscles.

Fascia is a strong connective tissue that lies under our skin, permeates every muscle and surrounds every bone, nerve, blood vessel and organ.

 

sports massage

Sports massage therapy focuses on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. The techniques improve performance, promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance and helps to prevent injuries. It also enhances pre-event preparation and reduces recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event.

 

prenatal massage

Carrying a child is one of the most special times in a woman’s life. It is also an emotional roller-coaster filled with ups and downs, growing pains, weight gain and stress.

Massage during pregnancy reduces stress, promotes relaxation, reduces muscular strain, fosters nurturing and provides emotional support. It also helps to reduce negative effects of changes to the circulatory system, including edema, varicose veins, and blood pressure.

 

deep tissue massage

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia.

Deep tissue techniques help to reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.

 

foot reflexology

According to the ancient practice of reflexology, each of the different areas on the bottoms of your feet correspond to specific parts of the body. By massaging each area, and applying direct pressure it can relieve pain and promote health for specific organs, glands, and body parts.

 

cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient modality in which special cups are placed on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Some of the many benefits include myofascial release, relieve pain, reduce inflammation, increase blood flow and improve relaxation.
