Our Integrative Massage is deigned to ensure you receive exactly what you want
from your massage every time. Often people need various types of massage and
different techniques at different body parts. The Integrative Massage blends all the
following therapies depending on your wants and needs.
Swedish Massage is designed to bring about a deep state of relaxation in the client
and but it offers many benefits for health and well being. Studies have shown this
type of gentle, circulatory massage can increase circulation, boost lymphatic and
immune functioning, lower blood pressure, improve quality and duration of sleep,
reduce symptoms of anxiety and depression, improve mental alertness and
function, reduce muscle pain and fatigue, and activates the parasympathetic
autonomic nervous system to bring the body back into balance.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is designed specifically to go deeper into the fibers of the
muscle and fascia to release unwanted adhesions causing pain and muscle
Medical massage uses combination of trigger points, movement therapy,
neuromuscular, orthopedic, myofascial, and sports massage to treat chronically
inflamed soft tissue that can cause a wide variety of problems such as tension
headaches, low back pain, neck injuries, TMJ syndrome, plantar fasciitis,
fibromyalgia, carpel tunnel syndrome, and many others.
Sports massage is designed specifically to meet the individual needs of competitive
athletes and weekend warriors alike. This type of massage maintains muscle
flexibility, suppleness, endurance, and keeps the joints loose and lubricated. This
can be geared for pre-sport readiness, post-sport cool down, or weekly sessions to
reduce the risk of injury and keep you at the top of your game.
This version of deep tissue massage is specifically focused to treat general and
chronic muscle aches and pains. These can include, but are not limited to: injury
rehabilitation, sciatica, low back pain, postural distortion, problems with the
shoulder and rotator cuff, carpel tunnel syndrome, whiplash and neck pain, TMJ
dysfunction, hip and knee pain, plantar fasciitis, and headaches.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) is a complete program of recovery from acute and
chronic pain syndromes which utilizes specific massage therapy, flexibility
stretching, and home care to eliminate the causes of most neuromuscular pain
patterns. This specific and scientific approach to muscular pain relief will help to
bring about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system.
NMT enhances the function of joints, muscles and biomechanics (movement) and it
releases endorphins, the body's own natural pain killers. It can be part of a
comprehensive program, complementing all other health care modalities.
Lymphatic massage or lymph drainage massage is a technique used to help
increase lymph flow. Increased lymph flow removes harmful substances from the
tissues and increases immune function. Lymphatic massage can be useful in
cases of edema, sports injury or for people experiencing a sluggish immune system
or those suffering from a lack of energy.
Tui Na Chinese Massage
One type of traditional Chinese massage exist, which focuses on pushing,stretching
and kneading the muscles and connective tissues. Tui Na is based on the
principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. These specific massage techniques
have been used for thousands of years to stimulate and influence the "qi" or
energy of the body bringing it more to balance and health.
Trigger Point Therapy
This form of massage provides targeted relief to specific areas of the body or
muscle groups. Trigger points are areas in your muscles that actually cause pain
or discomfort in other areas in the body. Specific forms of massage in these areas
can cause these trigger points to release and by doing so, eliminate the referred
pain. This therapy is often combined within other massages.
Acupressure uses specialized hand manipulations on specific points of the body to
influence the pathways of energy know as meridians in Traditional Chinese
Medicine. By influencing this energy, the body can return to a state of optimal
balance. This therapy is often combined within other forms of massage.
Hot & Cold Therapies
We offer a variety of forms of hot and cold therapies including dry heat, mineral
heating lamps, heat packs, hydroculators, cool wraps, ice packs, and the
application of ice to the body to facilitate relaxation, pain control, and healing.
