Please note that the following are basic descriptions for each style of massage. Each individual therapist may have slight differences in their techniques used. Always discuss massage styles and preferences with your therapist before each massage.

Swedish

This is the perfect massage for individuals that rarely receive a massage or have never before received a massage from a licensed therapist. A Swedish massage involves light to moderate pressure and stroking to warm muscle tissue and increase circulation.

Deep Tissue

Typically used for relaxation and injury rehabilitation, a deep tissue massage uses more pressure than a Swedish massage and manipulates deeper layers of muscle and tissue. With slower strokes, the massage therapist will focus on concentrated areas of tension and pain.

Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy

The goal of this type of massage is to provide varying levels of concentrated pressure to specific areas or “knots” to balance the central nervous system. This massage may be appropriate to relieve chronic pain, treat injuries, relieve migraines, or for rehabilitation purposes.

Reflexology

Reflexology focuses on pressure points of feet, hands and ears. This type of massage is believed to be beneficial for overall health and generally serves to relax and balance.

Shiatsu and Acupressure

Shiatsu, meaning “finger pressure”, is used to aid relaxation and wellness. The massage therapist applies pressure to the body’s 14 “meridians” to improve energy flow.

Neo-Reichian

Gentle movements and pressures are applied to specific areas of the body to relieve chronic muscle tension.

Sports Massage

Used to stimulate and stretch muscles, Sports massage is designed to help athletes prepare the bodies for performance and to aid recovery and training by stimulating the circulation of blood and lymph fluids.

Russian Sports Massage

Similar to a traditional Swedish massage or Sports massage but with greater focus on rehabilitation and injury recovery, the Russian Sports massage aims to decrease muscle fatigue, tension, and chronic pain.

Structural Bodywork and Myokinetics

This, sometime painful, style of massage uses very deep pressure and is used to help recover from injury or relieve pain caused by intense stress. Results should be immediately recognized.

Injury Massage

With an injury massage deep pressure is applied to the specific area of a past injury in an attempt to relieve pain and remedy damage done by the injury.

Cranial-Sacral Therapy

Cranial-Sacral Therapy is meant to promote a deep level of relaxation with light pressure applied to the head and skull. Often used to relieve headaches and neck pain, this style of massage promotes full-body health.

Each of our Massage Therapists are fully certified, trained professionals, each specializing in different techniques.

Education:

Usui/Holy Fire II Reiki Level One Certified 
Why massage?

I was eager to be in a profession where I could make personal connections with the people I saw on a daily basis. I strive to encourage and facilitate growth and healing in all of my clients.

What should clients expect when they come to see you?
I would describe my approach to massage therapy as more energetic and heart centered. When we dive into self care we tend to focus more on keeping ourselves physically fit, and although that is important, we mustn’t forget our mental and emotional well being. I create a safe space to relax and let go. I acknowledge the body as a whole while targeting areas we carry our stress and traumas in. Expect to feel lighter, more at peace, and relief from the body’s aches and pains.

Why massage?

I have always been drawn to massage therapy, and the way muscles and emotions are connected. Through my own self discovery of the benefits of massage therapy, I became eager to help others be able to do the same.

What should clients expect when they come to see you?

Clients should expect a tailored massage using a combination of various modalities to target both chronic pain while receiving physical and psychological changes. My goal within each session is to educate, correct postural imbalances, relax, and rejuvenate. Together we can make a difference in your everyday life!

Why massage?

Everyone can benefit from what massage has to offer. It can assist with many issues such as the need to relax from stress, receive pain relief from a variety of conditions such as scoliosis, or to improve performance and recovery from sporting events. I have experienced the numerous benefits of massage and want to pass that on.

What should clients expect when they come to see you?

Clients should expect to have a personalized massage experience based on their needs. I strive to help clients identify the cause of their discomfort so we can work together to release tight muscles, decrease pain and improve functionality and range of motion of the areas of focus. At the end of each session we will develop a plan of how we can work together to enable your muscles and body to function without pain and excess stress.

A: It puts you in control of when you want to schedule without relying on calling in! This new scheduling process not only helps limit error with scheduling, but it also helps our staff improve their efficiency while working at the front desk helping others. With 3 therapists on staff, it helps to keep them up to date about their clients immediately after changes occur so they can provide the best service to you!

A: Unfortunately no. But don’t that let you stop you from appreciating your therapists! There is a tip area in each of the massage therapy rooms to leave at your discretion.
