A balanced treatment that is unspecific to injury or acute muscle tension. The purpose of relaxation massage is to address the client's state of mind and well-being. Relaxation techniques may still involve deep pressure but the overall goal is to calm the body and the mind, and reduce nervous tension.
Specific and treatment goal-oriented. Therapeutic massage works to target areas of acute muscle tension for the purpose of reducing adhesion and releasing hypertension. Decreasing pain, increasing pain-free range of motion, and preventing further muscle related injury are some of the treatment goals associated with therapeutic massage.
Pregnancy or prenatal massage, addresses muscle tension and pain associated and in some cases specific to, expecting mothers. This treatment combines relaxation and therapeutic techniques, while addressing the ever changing needs of the client as her term progresses.
Through the use of cups dragged and placed around specific areas of the body, a suction is created that pulls muscle and soft tissue outwards and against origin and insertion points. This process also draws in fresh blood to areas that may be blocked due to adhesion and other cellular waste.
Relaxation and deep therapy work are brought together through Hot Stone therapy. Stones are placed on specific areas of the body to provide warm relaxation while also used to perform specific and deep muscle release techniques.
If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, or MVA, chances are you are suffering from some degree of Whiplash Associated Disorder.

For this reason we have a dedicated page outlining MVA Massage Treatment
