This page will be updated with more information about each therapeutic service.
Massage uses pressure to bring increased circulation to the muscles and skin. The amount of pressure can be tailored to your comfort level. There are many types of massage therapy, and I may include elements of each type on your session depending on your preference. Some types of massage are fast and warm you up, others are slow and relaxing. It all depends on what you need, and how your body responds to the treatment.
Trigger Point Therapy Sometimes you feel "knots" in your muscles. Sometimes you don't feel the knot, but you feel the pain or numbness that results from muscle tension. These are called trigger points and massage therapy can help to relieve these symptoms.
Swedish Massage A light, medium, or deep pressure massage to help you just relax, lower your stress, and recuperate.
Sports Massage This technique tends to be a bit more upbeat, includes stretching, and targets specific problem areas.
Stretching This can be incorporated into any session. While you can stretch by yourself at home (and I recommend that you do), there are some significant benefits to having an assisted stretch. Your muscles are able to relax better, and your therapist can better target specific areas. When you stretch at home you may activate muscles that should be relaxed during the stretch.
Cold Laser Therapy
Cold laser therapy, or low level laser therapy, uses the FDA Approved Laser Touch One™ to help with relief from pain, used in combination with your massage session. The therapy is not painful, but you may feel a tingling sensation.
