Swedish Relaxation Massage

Swedish Massage This traditional European massage incorporates a fusion of long, slow rhythmic strokes, light to medium pressure, and gentle kneading movements. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues.

Swedish massage promotes relaxation by calming the nervous system, improves and stimulates circulation and can improve muscle tone leaving you feeling peaceful, rested, relaxed and revitalized.

Fusion Massage

Fusion Massage A Fusion Massage is a unique blend of massage techniques and modalities custom-designed with regard to the needs and preferences of each person.

The body is first massaged with hot river stones, incorporating fast, rhythmic strokes warming the muscles and relaxing the body. Following is a full-body massage combining Swedish massage techniques (light to firm pressure as needed) and Thai massage techniques (jostling and stretching) to open areas of constriction.

Throughout, warm stones add a very special element that will soothe and comfort the body while allowing deep pressure where and when it is needed during the massage session. A Fusion massage will gently relax, de-stress and revitalize the body.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage The main goal of a Deep Tissue massage is to target tense and painful muscles, tendons and ligaments, relaxing the muscles and releasing chronic tension. Adhesions and trigger points are often the cause of such things as chronic back/neck pain, headaches and limited range of motion.

Using firm techniques - Petrissage (kneading), Friction, and Compression, treatment will address the deeper layers of muscle and fascia, releasing restriction in the tissue and knots (trigger points) while increasing circulation and producing an invigorated and stress-relieved state.

Sports Massage

The goals of Sports Massage are similar to those of clinical massage, with one big difference: Athletes want increased performance, and fast - whether massage is used for recovery after an event, restoring range of motion, or increasing oxygen to an area of injury to speed repair.

Post-Event Massage - Occurs 30 minutes to 6 hours after the event. Sports Post Event Massage Techniques focus on reducing soreness and spreading muscle fibers while promoting rest and recovery through the use of alternating Effleurage (gliding) strokes, Petrissage (kneading) and Friction. Tapotement and Deep Tissue techniques are not used in this massage to avoid muscle spasms.

Maintenance Massage - addresses the athlete's treatment goals and Sports Maintenance Massage emphasizes prevention. During the massage, spasm and trigger points are located and reduced by alternating Efflerage (gliding) strokes, Petrissage (kneading), Friction, Compression and Tapotement.

Each treatment targets sore muscles, aids in the removal of toxins, activates the body's natural immune system, includes jostling and stretching techniques and is adapted to the athlete's current needs.

Prenatal / Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy & Prenatal Massage Prenatal massage is a wonderful way to cope with the adjustments and ease some of the discomforts of pregnancy.

Massage benefits the body by soothing tired and tense muscles, improving sleep, relieves muscle cramps, spasms and tension in the lower back, neck, hips and legs. Prenatal massage also reduces the release of stress hormones, reduces heart rate and blood pressure, improves blood and lymph circulation, which can reduce swelling (edema) and can improve labour outcome and ease pain.

Contour and support pillows, padding, and specialized body positioning are used to ensure comfort and safety for both mom and baby during the session. Slow rhythmic strokes, light to medium pressure and gentle kneading brings about a sense of well being through relaxation.

30 minutes $60 / 45 minutes $75 / 60 minutes $90 **

*For the health and safety of both mom and baby, massage should be avoided or postponed if you are experiencing symptoms such as abdominopelvic pain, cramping, and spotting or vaginal bleeding. In these cases, medical clearance from your physician is required prior to a massage session.
