The Experience

Allow us to help make your world a bit more peaceful with the following treatments:

 

Swedish

This technique uses a soothing, medium pressure primarily characterized by long, gliding strokes and geared towards stimulating muscle tissue to enhance blood and lymph circulation. Therapists usually address the whole body with the use of oil, lotion or cream.

Deep Tissue

Similar to Swedish massage but with a deeper pressure, this technique is used to release chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) and may incorporate range of motion, body mobilization and stretching.

Craniosacral Therapy

This technique uses a soft touch to release restrictions in the cranio-sacral system (the membranes & fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord). This method serves as a complement to the body’s natural healing processes, working to release concussion compression and improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

Lymphatic Drainage

This massage technique encourages lymph flow in the body through the use of light, slow, repetitive strokes specifically designed to boost the circulation of the lymphatic system, which removes excess water, waste, toxins and foreign substances from body tissues.

Myofascial Release

This method uses a slow and subtle technique to evaluate and treat restrictions in the body’s connective tissue (muscles and fascia). The therapist uses light to moderate traction and a twisting approach on the soft tissue to achieve reflex changes. It can be used to treat chronic pain and injuries, as well as general aches and pains.

Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy

The most effective type of massage therapy for lower back pain caused by soft tissue injury, this therapy consists of alternating levels of concentrated pressure applied with the fingers, knuckles or elbow on the areas of muscle spasm.

Orthopedic Massage/Soft Tissue Rehabilitation

This massage facilitates myoskeletal alignment and heals pain and injuries by using a system of assessment, orthopedic testing, treatment and client self-care protocols. It is often used to optimize athletic performance.

Pre/Post Natal

This massage is used to reduce pregnancy discomforts and concerns, as well as to enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus. In the postpartum period, these specialized techniques rebalance the structure, physiology and emotions of the new mother.

Reflexology

This technique uses a healing method based on the principle that the whole of the body is reflected in specific zones in the feet, hands, cranium and ears. By pressing and manipulating these areas, the corresponding body part receives stimulation and extra blood flow, allowing the body to seek its own balance.

Sport

A therapy geared towards athletes of every kind and level, this massage focuses on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. It is specially designed to promote flexibility, reduce fatigue, improve endurance, and to help prevent injuries by preparing the body and mind for optimal performance.
