Medical massage can be very beneficial to improving the circulatory & lymphatic systems but can target specific areas of injury, immobility, surgeries, pain and more. Therapeutic massage will go one step farther beyond relaxing and will focus on those problem areas of knots and tension that need more mobility and release. *See below for pricing to add on Basic Aromatherapy or Specialized Aromatherapy.
Prenatal massage is one of the best therapies that a woman could do for herself and her baby while being pregnant. Despite some of the myths, there is no indication of negative side effects of massage in the 1st trimester or beyond with trained professionals. We do offer this from the beginning of your pregnancy up to the day you are going in to deliver. Deep tissue, however, is not advised.
Special trigger points will be focused on to relieve tension in the head along with facial/sinus work when needed, scalp work, and a lot of neck and shoulder work. With our specialized essential oil therapists, there may be some Young Living oils incorporated to aid in relief. Cold stone is also a great option for head pains.
Sport massage is typically a deeper massage that will most often involve more movement and mobilization or stretching during the treatment depending on the "sport" or activity the client performs.
MFR will begin with a postural assessment. MFR treats the entire Myofascial mind/body complex, eliminating the pressure of the restricted Myofascial system that causes symptoms.

For Cold Stone massage, chilled marble stones can be used to release deep trigger points, reduce inflammation and aid in relieving head aches & migraines.
This treatment includes the use of massage cups of various sizes and material (cups use a reverse pressure or suction of the tissue) on the muscular problem areas in order to promote blood flow and circulation, loosen adhesions, release trigger points and flush out toxins in the area in order to promote healing to the "issues in the tissues".
Our gua sha technique is used for soft tissue release of the muscle. This treatment includes the use of GuaSha tools during your massage treatment. GuaSha is from Chinese medicine over 2,000 years ago. It is also commonly known as scraping.
