Relaxing and Therapeutic Massages
I believe that massage is not just a luxury, but an affordable way to reduce stress and promote healing for the whole family. Special care and consideration is taken to tailor specific treatments for each client’s needs. Whether the goal is to relax and unwind, or target specific trouble areas. I love what I do and really enjoy making people feel better by reducing pain and stress. I firmly believe in the restorative and relaxing benefits of massage, and personally have had debilitating foot pain alleviated through Reflexology. – Linda, LMT
A classic favorite, the head-to-toe Swedish Massage combines long gliding strokes and gentle kneading techniques to relax and restore. Different pressures from light to deep can be used to break up adhesions and restore circulation to tense muscles. By far, the most popular benefit is that it is both relaxing and invigorating. It is an excellent way to help rid the body of tension and to achieve a sense of overall well-being. Choice of light, medium or heavy pressure. $65.00/hr.
Therapeutic Sports Massage
Focused and intensive, this massage is true to it’s name, going deep into the layers of soft tissue to provide relief to sore, tired and tense muscles. Pressure applied to painful trigger points to ease toxins out, and blood flow back in. Essential oils can be used to penetrate deep into the muscle fascia providing lasting relief for painful knots and spasms. $75.00/hr.
Special bolstering allows a gentle, whole body massage that relaxes and restores. Specifically designed for each individual, your needs will be discussed with the therapist to determine the best possible treatment plan to allow for maximum relaxation and tissue rejuvenation. $65/hr.
A pressure point massage applied to the feet, Reflexology is believed to be beneficial not only for the feet, but as a result of total relaxation the body can once again return to balance. This treatment gently nudges the body towards improved functioning of the system by improving lymphatic drainage and venous circulation, stimulation to the nerve pathways, and muscle relaxation. Although the main benefit of Reflexology seems to be relaxation, many other benefits include better quality of sleep, improved digestion, help for migraines, and relief of plantar fasciitis. Can be combined with any massage or as a stand alone treatment. $1.00/min.
A soothing massage can help you unwind, but that’s not all. Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.
Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.
