Chair massage - in a special ergonomic chair - is a popular way of receiving a massage if you have mobility issues, or when your schedule prohibits a full body massage. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, chair massage is done over the clothing, which is especially beneficial to a more modest client, or someone who has never experienced a massage previously. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
Chair Massage events are available for conferences, wedding parties, and fundraisers.
(Swedish) Table Massage
Swedish Massage is generally a very relaxing style of bodywork. The benefits are wide-ranging, and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress, enhanced balance, relaxation, improved appearance, and greater flexibility. Some techniques that may be included during this session are acupressure and trigger point therapy, which typically are used to therapeutically address specific areas of concern. If a deep tissue massage is requested, there is a small up-charge.
The goal of Lymph Drainage Therapy is to gently move lymph, especially from swollen areas of the body, relieving pressure and enhancing function of the immune system as well as mobility. As both a preventative and remedial technique, LD can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, to reduce seasonal swelling, reduction of swelling and discomfort from surgery, reduce swelling in pregnancy, and reduce swelling and edema after cancer treatments.
Myofascial Release is a form of massage therapy intended to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and re-balance the entire body by using directed massage techniques to release the bonds that constrict the fascia, muscles and bones. This allows for increased circulation and relief from pain. This therapy is used widely in athletes and clients with repetitive motion tension and injuries.
Orthopedic massage is a style of massage therapy focused on treating painful conditions that affect the soft tissues of the body, including injuries, surgery, and joint replacement. Because orthopedic massage is designed to treat medical conditions, it requires extensive training. It involves releasing tense muscles, helping to stretch and lengthen tight muscles and tendons and decompress rigid joints. The goal is to restore full health to the soft tissues of your body by treating your specific conditions, as well as improve your overall well-being. Full communication is the standard in this modality. As always, the viewpoint and input of the client is respected and encouraged.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically to support a woman's body throughout the extraordinary physical and emotional changes that take place during her pregnancy. Special bolsters and pillows are used to support her appropriately at every stage of pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including increased dimensions of support, the relief of joint pain and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles, enabling an effective and deep massage with less pressure. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.
Deep Tissue/TriggerPoint Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be slightly painful during treatment, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
