By relieving muscle tension, Swedish Massage therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. This full body massage involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes. This can also be combined with movement/stretching of the joints to increase range of motion and muscle tone.
Sports massage therapy is ideal for athletes of every kind, and the benefits are not just for the pros. They’re extended to anyone who participates in a regular exercise program. From professionals to a recreational jogger. From the occasional pick-up basketball game to the weekly “beer league” hockey or softball player.
The massage technique is specific to the athlete’s sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Sports massage therapy is a vital component in a balanced training regimen.
Sports massage therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. Sports massage can improve performance, reduce pain, prevent injury, encourage focus and shorten recovery time. It’s one of the most effective forms of therapy for injury recovery and can help restore and even increase mobility and range of motion.
Deep Tissue/Therapeutic Massage
Deep tissue/Therapeutic Massage is best for focusing on certain painful and/or stiff “trouble spots”. Not intended as a relaxation technique, the use of deep tissue massage can be very therapeutic, relieving patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries and chronic pain.
Hot Stone Massage
Deeply relaxing and therapeutic, Hot Stone Massage combines Swedish and Deep Tissue Massage techniques with warm, round, smooth Basalt stones to promote deep relaxation, relieve tension, and encouraging blood flow and increased circulation.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. MLD is recognized as a primary tool in lymphedema management.

Cupping ~ Cupping involves placing silicon cups on the skin and creating a vacuum by suctioning out the air. The underlying tissue is raised, or sucked, partway into the cup. Cupping can be described like a reverse massage. Instead of pushing the muscles into the body to get them to relax, suction is used to gently pull the muscle tissue upward to help it release. The purpose of cupping is to enhance circulation, help relieve pain, remove “heat” and pull out the toxins that linger in your body’s tissues. Clients may feel a tight sensation in the area of the cup. Often, this sensation is relaxing and soothing.
Gua Sha ~ Gua sha is a technique in which scraping is used to release muscle tension, stiffness and congestion. An oil or lubricant is applied to the skin and then it is scraped with repeated strokes with a smooth edged gua sha tool until small red or purple spots appear. In addition, gua sha has been shown to have a positive effect on the immune system.
Kinesio Taping ~ We are certified in functional movement taping (Rock Tape FMT). Many people know this as kinesio tape. It not only helps in the healing process but also helps enhance performance (you don’t have to be injured to feel benefits of kinesio taping).
