Therapeutic Massage Techniques
We will customize a massage for you according to your needs using a mixture of the following modalities. Let us know if you are interested in any one particular style.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the relieve muscular tension and improve circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress, enhanced mental clarity, and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Deep Tissue massage should never be painful, although at times it may be intense. Your therapist will encourage open communication during the session to make sure you stay relaxed and comfortable.
Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. The theory of Myofascial Release requires an understanding of the fascial system (or connective tissue). The fascia is a specialized system of the body that has an appearance similar to a spider’s web or a sweater.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing “trigger points” in your body. These ‘knots’ are built up throughout a person’s life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques in order to release your trigger points.
Acupressure is a form of bodywork similar to acupuncture, with the aim of stimulating specific points along the energy lines of the body to establish overall health and vitality by balancing your Qi (energy) flow. Unlike acupuncture however, with this modality I use my hands to apply pressure to the specific points rather than needling, producing similar therapeutic results.
Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands that correspond to all the glands, organs and parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas, to relieve stress and tension, promote the unblocking of nerve impulses and improve blood supply in the whole body. Reflexology helps nature achieve homeostasis and has an impressive ability to facilitate healing in the body.
We are not currently offering a dedicated Reflexology treatment, but rather use these techniques to complement our bodywork.”

The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.
Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Therapy
ASHIATSU (ASHI = FOOT, ATSU = PRESSURE) is an ancient form of bodywork that started with the Buddhist Monks, first from China, then from Thailand and Japan. This unique deep work is done with the therapist’s feet using the power of the legs and the weight of the body to impact the deeper muscle layers. Perfect for those who prefer deep massage, as well as those with thick or well-developed muscles who have trouble feeling the impact of massage done with the hands.
CranioSacral Therapy is a bodywork method that focuses on gently stimulating your CranioSacral system (membranes and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord) to heal the body by improving the functioning of the central nervous system. CST effectively complements your body’s natural healing process, and has been known to help alleviate a wide variety of problems including Central Nervous System Disorders, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, TMJ, Fibromyalgia and more.
Thai Massage (Nuad Bo-rarn) – a new specialized massage service
Thai massage(Nuad Bo-rarn) is a traditional bodywork practice based on the principles of compassion(metta). This massage is done on a mat on the floor. You will remain fully clothed for the session, and no oils or lotions are used. Massage pressure is applied with hands, feet, elbows and knees along sen(energy) lines throughout the whole body while you are gently moved through passive yoga-like stretches and postures. Thai massage is both revitalizing and relaxing, and a session will address the whole body, promoting balance. As such, it can be helpful with a variety of ailments stemming from chronic imbalances, physical and otherwise.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
The LDT process involves the use of gentle manual maneuvers to aid in the recirculation of body fluids, stimulate functioning of the immune system, and balance the autonomic nervous system. It is a very light pressure technique, and is very relaxing.
It can improve sinus problems, reduce edemas (swelling), relieve chronic and subacute inflammation, detoxify the body, provide deep relaxation to aid insomnia, depression, stress, loss of vitality and loss of memory, and more.
