What can massage really do?
Through massage, clients begin to become educated about their body and learn how to reverse the negative cycles that build stress. Massage can also help clients recover from injuries and can free the body of spasms and pain while increasing its performance and range of motion.

Massage is one of the oldest forms of therapy in the world!
As a massage therapist stretches and loosens muscles and connective tissues, stress and muscular tension are soothingly released. The Musculoskeletal, Circulatory, Lymphatic, and Nervous systems are all effected by massage. As a result, people are able to truly relax for the first time in years and gain awareness as to where stress lodges in their body and what they can do to counter it.
Deep Tissue Massage
This massage technique works through layers of muscle to relieve aches, pains, and tension that has built up over time. A deep tissue massage is often slower and more focused to allow the soft tissue to open at deeper levels. Since a deep tissue massage requires more time to release the accumulated tension in trouble areas, your massage will not always treat all areas of your body in one session.
While most clients thoroughly enjoy these sessions, this is not a spa treatment. Some treatments involve treating tender, aching, sore areas of the body and therefore the treatment ceases to be a spa treatment but more of a rehab treatment.
Therapeutic Bodywork is similar to a deep tissue massage with an extensive focus on the areas of your body suffering from pain or a diminished range of motion. Each client has their own unique need and so each session is specially tailored to suit the needs of that client to maximize their results. We begin with a careful study of the movements involved in everyday activity, followed by muscle an joint movements. Deep joint mobilization is used to correct harmful movement patterns and prevent tissue damage during normal, daily activity.
Appointments are offered in 60 and 90 minute sessions.
