TREATMENTS

Therapeutic Massage

NEUROMUSCULAR

A specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms. Neuromuscular therapy is used to treat many different soft tissue problems such as lower back pain, upper back pain, carpal tunnel like symptoms, sciatica like symptoms, hip pain, headaches, plantar fasciitis, calf cramps, tendonitis, knee pain, iliotibial band friction syndrome, jaw pain, tempomandibular joint pain, etc.

DEEP TISSUE

Implies that the therapist will be penetrating into your muscle tissue, working IN BETWEEN your muscle tissue fibers - something that is impossible to accomplish with broad, gliding massage strokes over relaxed muscles. In fact, a thorough, full-body deep tissue massage would take several hours to several days to accomplish, regardless of the technique being used, and is not recommended for beginner massage recipients due to the large volume of toxins released during such a lengthy, aggressive process.


SWEDISH

As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage therapy also goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

SPORTS

A form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.


MYOFASCIAL RELEASE 

A manipulative treatment that attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Connective tissues called fascia surround the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body. Points of restriction in the fascia can place a great deal of pressure on nerves and muscles causing chronic pain. Practitioners of myofascial release employ long stretching strokes meant to balance tissue and muscle mechanics and improve joint range of motion in order to relieve pain.

 

Reiki 

ENERGY HEALING 

The system of Reiki was founded by Dr. Usuai in 1922 with the intent to share body, mind and soul wellness. Energy healing supports the notion that dis-ease in the body is an indication of an imbalance in the individual's electromagnetic field. A Reiki practitioner gently places his or her hands on or above the clothes recipient to promote healing through the flow of universal energy. According to research, energy healing promotes relaxation and pain management, while also reducing anxiety and depression.

Yoga

MOVING MEDITATION

 

Yoga derives from the root word yuj in Sanskrit, which means unity. The practice unites one's mind, body and soul, as well as oneself with the collective. It is believed that through Yoga, one may experience the Divine qualities of love, compassion, joy, creativity and equanimity. While many people view yoga as a physical exercise routine, the deeper meaning and gift of the practice offers the practitioner an opportunity to expand consciousness, liberating oneself from worldly time-space suffering.
