Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage can be invigorating and involves more intense pressure. This technique focuses on a localized area of the body with the aim to affect the various layers of fascia that supports muscle tissues and loosen bonds between the layers of connective tissues.


Sports Massage

Sports Massage is the use of deep tissue techniques to fit the particular sport you are involved in.  Sports such as running, tennis, golf, swimming, softball, cycling,  and weight training can all be addressed.  Specific muscles are massaged to create a greater release and improve performance.  Treatment can be administered for pre, during and post event bodywork. Stretching and warming along with other applications of bodywork that enhance your performance for an athletic event.

Swedish Relaxation Massage

Swedish Massage is a classic approach to relaxation massage. The strokes are continuous movements that can be slow and gentle or vigorous and bracing. Pressure is moderate. Strokes are elongated to provide an overall soothing experience.


Active Release Technique (ART)

ART treatment is a hands-on touch and case-management system that allows a practitioner to diagnose and treat soft-tissue injuries.  Soft tissue refers primarily to muscle, tendon, fascia, and nerves.  Specific injuries that apply are repetitive strains, adhesions, tissue hypoxia, and joint disfunction.  This is an aggressive and more clinical type of massage with a high level of intensity.


LomiLomi Traditional Hawaiian Massage

LomiLomi Massage is one of the oldest and most powerful forms of healing.  It has ancient origins, and has been practiced in Hawaii for centuries, in order to maintain and promote a healthy life.  It includes soft, gentle strokes from head to toe. This helps to open up any blockages in the body and opens up the charkas and meridians, thereby facilitating a free flow of energy. This results in healthy vibrations, which rejuvenate and heal the body, relax the mind and boost the spirit. This nurturing and healing massage thus helps to remedy many ailments and diseases, and is also recommended for recovery after surgery.


Orthopedic Massage

Orthopedic massage is a form of massage that combines techniques of several different massage styles - including both clinical and sports forms. It is used on a client when they have soft tissue pain or injury.  This technique has three main elements: assessing the injury, matching the treatment to the injury, and adapting of the treatment as necessary.  Unlike many forms of massage therapy, the most emphasis related to this form of massage is placed on understanding the injury as well as what it will take to heal that injury. While orthopedic massage is generally used to help heal soft-tissue injuries, many athletes and dancers receive orthopedic massages regularly to enhance performance


Hendricson Method

Hendrickson Method is an advanced system of orthopedic therapy that brings together a dynamic combination of techniques: massage, mobilization, and neuromuscular re-education, synthesized with Eastern energy practices. Clients receive a gentle session that provides pain-relief and functional rehabilitation. Precise and extremely effective, Hendrickson Method is suitable therapy for most orthopedic conditions including low back pain, whiplash, and rotator cuff injuries. With long-term benefits this exceptional system of functional rehabilitation uses techniques that stimulate the synthesis of new cells, rehydrate cartilage, and realign soft tissue. At its core is a one-of-a-kind stroke called wave mobilization®, so named because its gentle rocking motion mimics ocean waves.


Reflexology


Reflexology is the art and science of stimulating the body's own healing forces by locating and compressing certain reflex points in the hands and feet. Reflexology is based on the principles that reflex points are related to every organ in the body. By applying pressure to a reflex point, the practitioner can effect certain beneficial changes.
