Therapeutic Massage helps to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body and to help restore balance by removing chronic tensions that are formed by muscular tension. Therapeutic massage can help break down adhesions & loosen connective tissue. It can be performed for a full body session (hour), or for muscle-specific work (1/2 hr). The benefits of this type of treatment include relief of long term pain, tension and/or muscles spasms.
Combining a variety of therapies, let us tailor a massage that’s perfect for you. Some of these techniques may include but are not limited to Swedish, Neuromuscular, Sports, Trigger Point and/or Deep Tissue. This therapy requires good communication between client & therapist, to determine the level of pressure that is comfortable to the client. Some clients may want a deeper massage while others don’t. Please communicate your preference to the massage therapist at the beginning of your session and continue to communicate with your therapist during the session. Some areas may be more sensitive to pressure than others. Please inform your therapist if you need the pressure adjusted in these areas.
Clients that are receiving a deeper massage should not be alarmed if some slight bruising occurs. Most clients will most likely feel sore for a day or two, like after a good work out. Drinking plenty of water & soaking in a warm Epsom salts bath can help flush toxins from the body & reduce the muscle tenderness.

Reiki is an energy healing technique that promotes relaxation, reduces stress and can help relieve symptoms through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body, improving the flow and balance of your energy to support healing. Reiki practitioners act as a conduit between you and the source of the universal life force energy.
Mikao Usui developed reiki in the early 1900s, deriving the term from the Japanese words rei, meaning “universal,” and ki, which refers to the vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Now, reiki is used all over the world, including in hospitals and hospices, to complement other forms of health treatments.
Reiki can bring on a meditative state, encourage tissue and bone healing after injury or surgery, stimulate your immune system, help support natural self-healing and relieve pain and tension. It is also known to help support the well-being of people receiving traditional medical treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation, surgery and kidney dialysis.
During your Reiki treatment you may experience feelings of peace, relaxation and wellness. You might feel sensations of tingling or heat where the practitioner has their hands and/or feel the energy move throughout your body. Some people may see colors or images, while others do not perceive anything at all. Most feel very relaxed and peaceful during the session and some even fall asleep, however, no matter what you do or don’t feel, know that healing is happening.
This treatment combines both Reiki and massage in to one treatment so that you may experience the benefits of both techniques. This is a truly relaxing and restorative treatment.
Similar to the techniques used in Swedish this massage involves long, soothing strokes to the body so the client will feel completely balanced and connected. This technique is described as both revitalizing and relaxing due to its continual touch and long strokes. Transitional massage treats the body as a whole therefore there is minimal draping.
Massage cupping therapy is an ancient technique that has found its place in the modern world of healing. It is a modified version of the common practice of cupping therapy, used in traditional Chinese medicine, and the results that this simple treatment produces are impressive. Through suction and negative pressure, massage cupping releases rigid soft tissue; drains excess fluids and toxins; loosens adhesions and lifts connective tissue; and brings blood flow to stagnant skin and muscles. Massage cupping integrated with Swedish strokes and deep tissue manipulation gives you the ultimate muscle therapy all in one session.

Lymphatic drainage massage sessions help encourage lymph flow, reduce cellulite and rid the body of toxins. When done properly, lymph drainage assists in maintaining the integrity of the immune system and helps to strengthen the body against immune system inefficiencies, colds, arthritis, allergy symptoms, and other inflammatory conditions that can affect the body’s natural defense system.
Using a special combination of techniques to stimulate and move the lymph can relieve congestion in the lymph ducts and nodes, which can lead to a more healthy lymph flow. Technique time ranges from 30-45 minutes with a 15 minute rest time to allow the body to complete the drainage naturally.
