Deep Tissue Massage
$80 per 60 minutes

The definition of deep tissue massage is quite straightforward. It is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Its benefits are often immediately evident. Deep tissue massage is a highly effective method of releasing chronic stress due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. This "real" or "super" deep tissue massage, as the standard modality is sometimes called, can be intense. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that are released from the deep tissue during the session.

Swedish Massage
$60 per 60 minutes

What is a Swedish massage? It is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. While some incorrectly perceive a benefit competition of Swedish vs therapeutic massage, the Swedish modalities make up the foundation for all massage and prove their therapeutic value by combining oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Medical Treatment Massage
$120 per 60 minutes

Medical treatment massage is a therapy that rehabilitates when applied as a combination of multiple massage modalities to a specific problem area (or areas). Therefore, there are multiple medical massage types. It is a "multi-modality" or "holistic" massage approach to the restoration of your body to proper function. For example, your medical massage therapist may determine that "medical massage -- knee" first requires preparatory work in surrounding areas.

Those who suffer from particular health conditions often benefit greatly from this technique for conditions such as recent injury, chronic pain, muscle spasms, frozen shoulder, chronic headaches, soft-tissue injuries, repetitive motion injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, whiplash, Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, rotator cuff injuries, and general neck and back pain.

Sports Massage
$70 per 60 minutes

Sports massage is designed for highly active people who engage in athletics. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function.


Chair / Mobile Massage
$1 per minute

Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.


Myofascial Massage
$70 per 60 minutes

Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself. Since fascia completely encases every muscle in the body, imbalances in the fascia can have serious effects on your range of motion and comfort level. While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.


Trigger Point Therapy
$70 per 60 minutes

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 quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.


Neuromuscular Therapy
$70 per 60 minutes

Neuromuscular therapy is a system of massage techniques that was developed in the 1930's by Dr. Stanley Lief in England. It uses a holistic approach toward healing, emphasizing and stimulating the body's natural ability to heal itself. Neuromuscular therapy also enhances the function of joints and muscles, and accelerates the overall healing process by facilitating the release of endorphins.


Hot Stone Therapy
$80 per 90 minutes

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. 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.

Did You Know?


Individuals who experience consistent pain often greatly benefit from deep tissue massage as part of their overall massage therapy regimen. Deep tissue massage is frequently recommended for people who are involved in heavy physical activity (hello athletes, we're talking about you) as well as physical injury patients.

 

The term "deep tissue massage" is sometimes incorrectly used to describe a sustained deep pressure massage. No. Deep tissue massage is in a category all its own, because it treats certain muscular-skeletal issues and uses specific techniques and strokes to promote relief.
