Main Content
Massage is a universal therapy that has been around for thousands of years, with nearly every culture having its own techniques and styles to aid in the healing of the body. Although many believe that massage's only benefit is relaxation, studies prove that it does much more, such as:
-Relieves musculoskeletal pain
-Reduces appearance of scars
-Enhances sleep quality
-Reduces fatigue
-Promotes a sense of well-being
-Lessens depression and anxiety
-Reduces stress 
-Increases circulation
-Enhances immunity by stimulating lymph flow
Not all massage experiences are the same. There are a wide variety of types that can be used to harbor different results. The styles used in this office are:
Swedish: the most easily recognizable, well known type of massage. Swedish massage consists of four major techniques: effleurage, (gliding over the skin) pettrissage, (rolling or kneading of muscles) friction, (circular pressure) and tapotement (percussive tapping). Swedish massage was specifically designed to relax muscles and increase blood flow to surrounding tissue, which encourages healing and relaxes the mind and body. 
Deep Tissue: contrary to popular belief, deep tissue does not refer to Swedish massage with more pressure. Deep tissue is a slow, methodical type of massage focusing on a client's problem muscle groups. Whether it's neck pain from an old whiplash or tension from a desk job, deep tissue can work to relieve it.
Sports massage has been utilized by professional athletes for years to warm up and cool down. Sports massage utilizes compression or squeezing of muscle as well a percussion or tapping.  Receiving sports massage prior to a workout helps warm tissues and stimulate proprioceptors, reducing the chance of injury. Post-workout massage helps remove lactic acid from muscles, cutting recovery times and reducing pain. More and more people are incorporating sports massage into their fitness routines to help improve the effectiveness of their workouts.
Chair massage is performed with the client fully clothed in a special chair. It focuses on the neck, shoulders, back, and arms, and is ideal for clients that can not lay face-down for an extended length of time or for those nervous about trying massage for the first time.

Our massage therapist will work with you to create the ideal massage experience for you.
