Massages we offer:
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. This is a very popular type of massage today, what is offered most often in spas. A variety of strokes are used 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.
Deep Tissue Massage
Our specialty and most popular massage is Deep Tissue. Deep Tissue Massage focuses on realigning the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Many of the same strokes are used as in a classic Swedish Massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on specific areas of tension and pain. It is helpful for relieving chronically tense and contracted areas, and helps to speed up the recovery process after injury. We like to combine different techniques and modalities in this massage, suited to your specific needs.
Deep tissue massage is a technique that focuses primarily on the deeper layers of muscles and the fascia. Deep tissue has many benefits. It can be helpful when treating chronic aches and pain, reducing stress and anxiety, can help athletes with recovery and performance, can help ease arthritis symptoms, and break up scar tissue. Deep tissue usually involves the therapist using firmer pressure in order to reach tight and contracted areas and get them to release, which is why this particular massage is oftentimes recommended for people who are comfortable with a slightly more intense touch. However, deep tissue massage can also refer to gentle yet sustained pressure targeting the myofascial layer.
The belief that deep pressure equals pain is a myth, although very therapeutic is does not need to be painful. Pressure can be adjusted based on comfort. Pain is actually counterproductive in a massage session, as a client who is bracing against any painful strokes from the massage therapist is just making the muscles tighter and less pliable. It is important to have an open line of communication with a massage therapist, so pressure and movement can be altered throughout the session.
After the session, you might experience some tenderness and soreness. It is helpful to drink water immediately following the session to flush out any toxins and rehydrate the body’s muscles. It is generally recommended to avoid any strenuous activity after a massage to give the body time to recuperate.
Sports and Orthopedic Massage
Recover more quickly and perform better with a sports massage. This massage aids in releasing the tension in the deeper layers of the muscles. If you are recovering from an injury, training for an event, or are an athlete, then sports massage could be a great massage option for you. Sports massage was originally designed to assist athletes to prepare their bodies for optimum efficiency, and to also recover more quickly after an event. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. Orthopedic massage focuses on problems with the client’s musculoskeletal system.
Myofascial release is a manual therapy technique often used in massage. The technique focuses on pain believed to arise from myofascial tissues. Theoretically, myofascial pain differs from other types of pain because it originates in “trigger points,” which are related to stiff, anchored areas within the myofascial tissue. During myofascial release therapy, the therapist locates myofascial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable under light manual pressure. These areas, though not always near what feels like the source of pain, are thought to restrict muscle and joint movements, which contributes to widespread muscle pain. The focused manual pressure and stretching used in myofascial release therapy loosen up restricted movement, leading indirectly to reduced pain.
Fascia is the connective tissue that envelopes and supports muscles, bones, organs, nerves, and vessels down to the cellular level. As a whole, fascia constitutes the body’s organ of structure, forming a complex, continuos and ubiquitous network from scalp to toes and skin to marrow. It is a moveable framework that supports, separates, and suspends individual organs. It is what defines and gives the body its shape. It has been said that if everything were to be removes from the body except for its fascial network, it would nevertheless retain tis full and distinct shape, much like the material left when all the juice is squeezed from an orange. Ida Rolf, the inventor of the Rolfing technique, has said that this fascial system is a plastic medium subject to both gravitational laws and and physical manipulation.
Malfunction of the fascial system due to trauma, poor posture, or inflammation can bind down connective tissue, placing abnormal pressure on other body components, and may require physical manipulation to relieve. As Ida Rolf states “Our ignorance of the role and significance of fascia is profound. Therefore, even in theory, it is easy to overlook the possibility that far reaching changes may be made not only in structural contour, but also in full manifestation through better organization of the layer of superficial fascia that envelopes the body. Experiments demonstrate that drastic changes may be made in the body solely by stretching, separating, and relaxing superficial fascia in an appropriate manner.”
Hawaiian Lomi Lomi
Lomi Lomi massage is an indigenous Hawaiian healing practice which usually includes massage – but not always. More than just massage, it is a way of life. Lomi was practiced by the native healers (Kahuna lā’au lapa’au) and was used as a restorative health practice within families. As with all ancient Hawaiian teachings, there are different lineages and teachers of Lomi Lomi. Each will have a slightly different technique. But no matter what type of Lomi a practitioner practices, there is always the unconditional spirit of aloha, total respect, honor, and sacredness in everything. The important thing is the focus, intent, and love of the practitioner. This type of bodywork utilizes long, broad, fluid movements. Forearms and elbows are often used to cover a broad area, and more oil is applied in this massage. Unlike many other massage modalities, Lomi Lomi works towards the emotional/energetic sources of pain and stress to release the root cause, rather than simply alleviating symptoms.

The prenatal massage can help to relieve many of the typical discomforts experienced during pregnancy – backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema. Massage reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, and helps to ease tension.
