Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage therapists typically use their hands and fingers for massage, but may also use their forearms, elbows and even feet. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure.
Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. Some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy, also known as Craniosacral Therapy involves light touches on the bones of the skull (including the face and mouth), spine, and pelvis to release tension and improve body
movement. The gentle, hands-on method may offer some relief for symptoms of stress and tension. It can be used to help people with serious diseases and those undergoing arduous treatment feel
Deep Tissue Massage
A relaxing session of Deep Tissue Massage is designed to relieve tension in the muscle and the connective tissues of the fascia. This therapy is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury.
Hot Cold Stone Massage
Hot/Cold Massage Therapy is an extremely relaxing therapeutic massage technique.
The warmth of the stones loosens up the muscles so that the therapist can go deeper.
The cold stones are refreshing and when combined with the hot stones are very effective for a wide range of physical ailments especially Fibromyalgia.
Massage for Cancer Patients
Massage is recognized as a useful, noninvasive addition to standard medical treatment for cancer patients. For those undergoing cancer treatment, massage can reduce pain, fatigue, nausea, anxiety
and depression. Massage may also improve sleep, nerve damage (neuropathy), quality of life, and mental clarity and alertness.
Myofascial release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial connective tissue restrictions to relieve pain and restore motion. This tends to be a much more gentle and subtle bodywork treatment
Prenatal massage shares many of the same goals of regular massage but is tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies
Raindrop therapy is a type of body work in which essential oils are used to help promote peace, harmony and healing. The essential oils are used at points along the spine to create an emotional shift that helps the client feel better.
Foot massage with beneficial effects throughout the body. There are points on the hands and feet that correspond to specific points on the body. For example, with reflexology, the fingertips correspond to the sinuses and consequently massaging the fingertips can help clear nasal congestion.
Seated Massage (suited for office visits)
Done while you sit, fully clothed, in a specially designed massage chair in your office; less expensive and time consuming while more convenient. Usually takes 1 to 15 minutes.
Shiatsu (Finger Pressure Massage)
Shiatsu is a Japanese form of body work that helps restore energy and balance to the body. This can be either on a massage table or a futon floor mat, and shiatsu doesn't require removing clothes.
Helps improve athletic performance and prevent injury.
Imagine lying flat down on a cushioned massage table. A warm towel is dipped in soothing rose water rests on your eyes, a breath pillow placed on your stomach, a warm flax seed pillow set on your feet, and that's just for starters. A Swedish massage increases circulation, removes lactic acid, and helps alleviate indigestion.
Combining elements of Shiatsu and Yoga, this technique removes blockages and greatly increases flexibility. The massage is performed fully clothed on a futon floor mat.

"It was truly an amazing experience. I do get massages, but this was a completely different experience. You can say 'I was
stretched and there were pressure points', but really how do you describe the feeling? It took me to a different level, a conscious level, almost of euphoria."
"Having you come to our business is paying for itself two-fold. My employees feel relaxed & appreciated more so now than ever before. It really shows them how grateful I am to have them as a regular part of the team. Also from my standpoint, owning a shop and being around cars, people need regular maintenance too. Your technique really relaxes all the muscles and joints needed to perform at optimum level. Since your services have been in use I’ve noticed a more upbeat tempo & morale in the shop. Guys aren’t as tense as they used to be. Work is getting done more efficiently, and most important to me is that everyone is happy and knows they’re a valuable asset to the company. I was looking for some way to spark some energy into my employees & you do just that, Steve. Your service is something that we all look forward to and perform better while using it. Thanks again for bringing your services to us."
