MASSAGE THERAPY


We offer everything from Swedish and Deep tissue to Trigger Point and Sports Massages.  These techniques help to relieve tension and improve recovery and performance. All of our massages are 60 minutes and our massage therapist, Ruthie, will work with you to make sure you're getting the service your body needs. Here's a little more insight into what to expect with each style of massage:

SWEDISH 

One of the primary goals of Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body; this type of massage is likely the style that comes to mind when most people think about massage therapy. The goal of this massage is to help increase the level of oxygen in the blood while decreasing muscle toxins and stress, improving circulation and flexibility. You'll leave feeling loose, relaxed and refreshed.

DEEP TISSUE

This style is similar to Swedish massage but with deeper pressure which is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. Here, the focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia. This type of massage is ideal to relieve strain and treat injuries in your joints and tendons. You'll leave feeling relaxed, loose and maybe a little bit sore. 

TRIGGER POINT

Trigger Point therapy is just like it sounds - this style targets very specific points in the body, specifically, locations where pain is occurring. The goal is to break down the build up of knots by applying direct pressure to them. The goal of this massage is not relaxation, in fact trigger point therapy can be slightly uncomfortable (in the best kind of way). However, in the long run your body will be more relaxed because you have alleviated these paint points.

SPORTS MASSAGE

This massage style takes into consideration your desired sports activity and our understanding of anatomy and physiology. Sports Massage is designed to aid in athletic performance by returning you to your desired activity with the same or an even better level of function. Utilizing a variety of massage techniques, this style can be preventative and also help to aid in recovery to restore functional movement and improve or relieve pain.
