Massage

Acupressure
An ancient style of bodywork based on the Chinese meridian system. Many patients think of it as acupuncture without needles. Instead, finger pressure is used to help release armoring patterns found throughout the body.

Trigger Point Therapy
There are many terms to explain this technique. The therapist applies pressure to tender points which frequently refer pain/sensation to a different area of the body. By addressing these tender points, pain is reduced and function of the tissues is improved.

Myofascial Release
This treatment attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. The techniques are frequently slow, repetitive and increasing in depth. Skin rolling is also frequently used. Fascia is found throughout the body, and research finds it is more intricately involved in our health than previously thought.

Hot/Cold Stone Therapy
Stone massage is a type of massage involving the application of heated or cooled stones to the body during deep tissue massage. The heat allows easy access to deeper layers of tissue, and the cold decreases inflammation.

Deep Tissue/Sports Massage
A type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Injury Treatment/Medical Massage
Most insurance plans require either a prescription or a referral for massage. If your provider has prescribed massage, we'll work closely with her/him to provide you the best possible course of treatment.

Pregnancy Massage
