List of Massage Services

Swedish Massage
Swedish massage uses five main strokes to stimulate the circulation of blood through the body: petrissage (kneading), effleurage (stroking), friction, tapotement (tapping), and vibration. Friction is reduced by the use of lotion. Swedish massage can relax muscles, increase circulation, remove metabolic waste products, and helps the recipient obtain an increased awareness of their body and the way they use and position it. It is refreshing, distressing, and the most familiar massage choice.
Shiatsu
Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese healing art which stems from the same oriental roots as Acupuncture. An imbalance in a person's energy may manifest as a backache, headache, depression, or in other ways. By working with specific meridians and pressure points, balance and health to the whole body can be restored. Shiatsu is primarily a preventative medicine which helps to maintain good health, vitality and stamina yet can be effective in helping with a wide range of disorders and chronic conditions. Shiatsu usually leaves one feeling deeply relaxed, energized and more able to cope with stress.
Reflexology
Drawn from ancient eastern techniques, these treatments are essential for stress reduction, wellness and balance. This use of special techniques breaks up and removes blockages in the body and restores proper circulation of blood to any given area. The focus of Reflexology is on the feet and hands where the nerve endings are located. This gentle therapy encourages the body to heal itself.
Deep Tissue
Excellent for chronic muscle tension. The purpose of Deep Tissue massage is to disengage the fibers of a muscle while releasing deeply-held patterns of tension, removing toxins, relaxing, soothing and thereby re-educating, as well as encouraging the muscle to operate at full capacity. It is both corrective and therapeutic. Although Deep Tissue is an intense massage with powerful results, it is done in such a way as to encourage the body not to react defensively. The depth and pressure of the work is kept within the comfort range of the client.
Sports Massage
Sports Massage improves athletic performance and speeds recovery time from injury. All athletes look for an edge that can help them train more effectively, perform better or overcome injuries quickly. This massage focuses on muscle used in a particular sport, although it is not just for athletes: pre-event massage techniques can also invigorate and recharge one's energy.
Myofascial Therapy
This therapy realizes longer-lasting postural changes by working on connective tissue rather than muscle. Subcutaneous (under the skin) fascia helps to hold our bodies together, and is extra thick around the joints and other highly stressed areas of the body. Lots of exercise and stretching helps elongate fascia and allows our muscles to function without inhibition. Myofascial therapy can reverse the constrictions in tissue found in most people.

Massage is not a luxury, it is health maintenance. Receiving regular massages keeps the immune system functioning at an optimal level, in turn keeping you healthy and less likely to become sick, reducing recovery as a result. Regular massages also relieve unhealthy tension and stress caused by everyday life.

Massage rids your body of toxins, balances your nervous system, stimulates blood flow and hormones as well as eliminating muscular adhesions.
