Deep Tissue Therapy

Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas. Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. This massage technique helps break up and eliminate scar tissue and usually focuses on more specific areas of the body to provide relief from pain. 

Hot Stone Massage

Slow gliding strokes with warm oiled stones relax the upper layers of muscles and relax your body from head to toe. As the muscles warm up deeper strokes may be applied into areas of soreness or chronic tension.


Myofascial Release

The use of gentle application of sustained pressure into the fascial restrictions caused by trauma, poor posture, or inflammation. This hands-on technique involves the application of stretches and pressure to the muscle and fascia that relieves tension and pain by releasing and lengthening the fascia, which allows the return of correct position, length and function of the muscle. The myofascial release approach releases excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, osseous structures and/ or organs.

Massage therapy enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
