A deeply relaxing and therapeutic soft tissue massage to release restrictions, increase mobility, and restore balance to the body, mind, and spirit. Our therapists are trained in a variety of rehabilitation massage modalities including John F. Barns myofascial release approach®, deep tissue, connective tissue therapy, trigger point therapy, sports massage, structural integration, neuromuscular therapy, and more. Although there are many different types of therapeutic modalities, sessions typically incorporate multiple techniques in order to best meet your particular needs.
A Swedish massage incorporates long slow strokes, kneading, and gentle movements to create a session that is both nurturing and extremely relaxing. This is a wonderful option for clients who like light to moderate pressure during a massage.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage involves applying pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. With so many clients that love using deep-tissue for pain-relief, this might be your answer to treating your ongoing issues!
Myofascial Release /John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach®
Myofascial release therapy is a gentle hands on approach to healing which incorporates a light touch to help release restriction in the connective tissue throughout the body. This technique works directly with the body's fascial system to gently release connective tissue, reduce adhesions, increase blood flow, release scar tissue, and reduce pain throughout the body. This bodywork treatment is beneficial for individuals with fibromyalgia, TMJ, chronic pain, disc problems, migraines, scar tissue restriction, menstrual pain, and normal everyday aches and pains. Gentle Myofascial release work can be incorporated into a therapeutic massage or a stand alone session for clients looking for an alternative to deep tissue and Swedish massage.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymph massage is a gentle massage technique designed to encourage the natural drainage of lymph. This massage uses light pressure to stimulate the lymphatic system which cleanses and nourishes our cells. Lymphatic Drainage Technique is a gentle approach that does not use creams or oils. The practitioner will identify stagnant, congested areas of the body and gently push the old lymph out of lymph vessels making room for fresh lymph to refill in the body, acting as a pump system to help stimulate the bodies immune system. The abdomen is also commonly flushed using gentle lymphatic techniques to assist with full body detoxification. This helps restore proper circulation in the body.

Scar Tissue Rehabilitation Massage
As the body recovers from an injury, scar tissue or collagen fibers develop around the site of an injury to mend the damage. This tissue has a denser feel to the tissue around it. Massage therapy can improve the flexibility, help hasten the healing process, and allow the tissue to resume a softer more malleable feel. We use a combination of massage techniques such as cross fiber friction, myofascial release, lymphatic drainage, and deep tissue therapy to help rehabilitate the body after an injury. This massage is wonderful for people who are being proactive with their healing starting 12 weeks post op or even many years after a injury or surgery.
