Our Therapies

Swedish Massage:
Primarily used for relaxation and stress management, to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles, and to shorten recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of metabolic wastes. Several different massage techniques can be combined depending on the patient’s needs. Technique may include Gliding Strokes, Kneading, Circular Pressure, Manual Vibration and Percussion, and Bending and Stretching.

Sports Massage:
Used to prepare the body for peak performance. To drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility, prevent injuries, and help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues. Sports Massage can reduce the heart rate and blood
pressure, increase blood circulation and lymph flow, and improve range of motion.
Sports Massage is designed to the specific needs of the individual, whether an athlete or a once a week jogger.

Active Isolated Stretching - The Mattes Method:
A technique that isolates the muscles to be stretched by contracting the opposing muscles in order to promote a full range of motion and flexibility. Flexibility is possibly the most important factor in the longevity of the human body and is the key in the prevention and recovery from injury.

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy:
A deep therapeutic technique that specifically targets muscles in spasm caused by trauma or repetitive strain. In addition to being painful to the touch these muscles lack proper blood flow and adequate oxygen. Alternating levels of concentrated and continuous pressure, ten to thirty seconds on the areas of spasm, allows the muscle to receive rejuvenating blood and replenished the oxygen levels.

CranioSacral Therapy:
A gentle and extremely safe and effective therapy designed to release restrictions that inhibit the body’s normal self-correcting mechanism. It can alleviate a wide range of conditions, including brain and spinal cord injuries, migraine headaches, chronic fatigue,
motor-coordination impairments, chronic neck and back pain, scoliosis, central nervous system disorders, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, stress and tension related problems, and orthopedic problems.

Myofascial Release:
A gentle mixture of stretches and massage that promotes healing and relieves pain by releasing tension and freeing constrictions from the fibrous bands of connecting tissue -
fascia - thereby alleviating problems with connective tissue scarring or injury.
Myofascial Release helps individuals with poor posture, physical injury, illness and emotional stress, and restores complete balance back to the body. Due to the noninvasive technique of this therapy it also can be safety administered to children of all ages.

TMJ: Temporal mandibular joint dysfunction treatment for jaw, face and head pain.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage:
This light, rhythmical massage aids the body in collecting and moving lymphatic fluid, which plays a key role in delivering nutrients and antibodies and removing toxins and waste. Manual Lymphatic Drainage also helps to lower blood pressure, reducing stress and improving sleep patterns.
