Integrative Therapeutic Massage

Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage techniques are used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. Combined with Orthopedic, Myofascial, and Thai modalities, integrative massage helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the surface. The goal is to penetrate deep layers of connective tissue, flush the area of fibrotic buildup and soften overly-toned muscles to help restore some flexibility and balance to the body by bringing it closer to a neutral body posture. This modality better addresses chronic pain problems, specific injuries, acute injuries, and repetitive strain issues.

Integrative Thai Massage

Taking place on a pad on the floor, the client remains fully clothed and passive while the therapist manipulates their body positions into "lazy man's yoga" poses and applies compression, and gentle stretching to promote flexibility, circulation, joint health, etc. The therapist applies leverage with feet, knees, shins, elbows and combining traditional Thai techniques with western Myofascial and Orthopedic concepts.  This massage is best when used to relax and restore the body's equilibrium, increase range of motion, acupressure, and full body treatments.

Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of expecting women. Specially-supportive side-lying and supine postures are used to prevent putting pressure on the abdomen. Massage will be more relaxing than therapeutic, aimed at alleviating the pressure of the low back and hips.
