Here are brief descriptions of some of the services we offer, prices at the bottom of the page:
Deep Tissue Massage
This style of massage can be done full body or in specified areas of the body. It is a deeper pressure than most massage and can be very helpful in breaking up tension or stuck areas in the body. It is very beneficial for repetitive stress or chronic injuries. Communication during these treatments is important so that work is not done too deeply and any bruising can be avoided. This style can cause extra soreness in the couple days following the treatment so extra water is recommended to reduce that soreness.
Swedish massage is generally done full body. It is a type of relaxation massage that is done with very slow flowing strokes to reduce the body's all over stress and increase circulation throughout the body. Lotions or oils are used as well. The benefits from this style of massage cover many things including improved circulation, mental clarity, decreased stress, decreased pain, and improved sleep for the next few nights following the massage.
Prenatal massage, also known as pregnancy massage, promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mothers. Prenatal massage is especially beneficial in the second and third trimesters, when the extra weight in your belly puts a strain on your back.
Neuromuscular Therapy (Specialty offered by Lachlan Croteau)
Neuromuscular therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms. A session will focus on your areas that are tight, stiff and sore and work specifically on releasing those “knots” in the muscles. The whole session can be focused on your pain points or incorporate it into a full body massage.
Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries. Pre-event massages will involve more invigorating techniques to prepare the muscles while Post-event massages will involve more restorative techniques to help with muscle soreness and fatigue.
Thai Massage (Specialty offered my Amilina Inthavong)
Thai massage, known as Nuad Bo Rarn or “ancient massage” in Thai, is a unique massage modality that has only been available in the United States for about fifteen years. However, its rich history in Thailand stretches back over 2,000 years. In a traditional Thai massage, the client lies on a mat on the floor, while the therapist uses his or her knees, feet, elbows, and hands to create compression and stretching. Some say receiving a Thai massage is like going to a massage therapist, chiropractor, and yoga class all in one.
Tui Na Massage
Tui Na massage is the Chinese style of massage. It is similar to deep tissue massage with the amount of pressure that can be used and also includes a variety of techniques such as jostling and rocking to improve joint mobility. It also combines the use of the 12 meridian lines and acupoints along the body to improve functionality of the associated organs. This style of massage can be very beneficial for chronic pain or injuries, decreased Qi in aspects of the life and body, decreased range of motion in joints, and for conditions like Frozen Shoulder.
Aromatherapy can be added to any massage. You can choose from any style of massage I practice and then you will get the choice of one of the many essential oils I have. I also will give you scents to choose from based of what needs you are wanting from the massage i.e. relaxation, decreasing muscle spasms, decreasing insomnia, decreasing pain, etc.
