Therapeutic Bodywork & Massage

Swedish, Deep Tissue, Myofascial Release, Pre-Natal, and Sports/Medical styles available, in either 60 minute or 90 minute options. Therapeutic Bodywork is a soft-tissue modality of treatment providing work on the areas that need the most attention. Thorough expertise & dialogue between the therapist and client guarantees the client is treated based on his/her individual needs. (Sometimes this type of therapy can be uncomfortable and does not always address the whole body.) 

Sessions can include soft tissue manipulation, stretching, active release, myoskeletal therapy, active isolated stretching, structural integration, and contract/relax techniques. Especially beneficial for those with chronic discomfort or injuries.

Benefits of Bodywork include:

• Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles

• Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts

• Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin

• Increase joint flexibility

• Lessen depression and anxiety

• Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks

• Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation

• Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling

• Reduce spasms and cramping

• Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles

• Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller

• Relieve migraine pain

• Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session between the therapist and the client is crucial so as to avoid discomfort. Keep in mind that soreness is common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Myofascial Therapy

Myofascial Therapy is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial therapy is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect therapy applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain. Please note that a postural and range of motion assessment will take approximately 15-20 minutes of the session. Clients are assessed prior to the bodywork, and after, so that goals can be made and attained.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
