Modalities Offered

Swedish:  The benefits derived from massage is quite extensive.  Reduces heart rate, lowers blood pressure, increases lymph flow, relaxes muscles, balances the nervous system are only a few of the many benefits.  The long flowing strokes of this technique is a favorite among clients who wish to experience the benefits without excessive pressure.

Deep Tissue: For that client who desires to experience all the benefits of massage but whose tight or rigid tissue needs for the therapist to address the tissue at a deeper level, this technique is recommended. 

Myofascial Release:  Fascia is a tough connective tissue which spreads throughout the body from head to toe.  It surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, and organ down to the cellular level.  Generally, the fascial system provides support, stability, and cushioning.  Tightening of fascia can come from physical or emotional trauma, and can manifest itself as muscle tightness, or pain.  Release of fascia incorporates gentle stretching and is often combined with other modalities to meet individual needs.    

PUSH Therapy: A specialized form of muscle therapy developed specifically to eliminate pain from chronic tension in soft tissue.  It uses a soft pressure stimulation technique which softens tissue one layer at a time.  Client is asked to dress in loose comfortable clothing for the treatment.  A great component to this therapy is client education:  we look at how and why are the muscles tense and assist you on how to avoid those actions which tightened the tissue initially.

Arthrossage: Incorporates compression and stretch techniques to help the client regain flexibility very often lost or limited due to arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, or rheumatoid arthritis.  Client should wear loose clothing in order to comfortably perform stretches.  Note: Stretching is done in accordance with client comfort level and for short periods of time.
