Massage is the “hands on” treatment in which the therapist press, rub and knead the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments to relieve tension and pain. Massage Therapy improves circulation by bringing oxygen and other nutrients to body tissues. There are times when a massage therapist may use their forearms, elbows and even feet. The techniques for massage range from light stroking to deep pressure. Please be open with your therapist about appropriate pressure, areas you prefer not to be touched, injuries or sensitivities. We are intuitive, but we do need your feedback.
Our practitioners will discuss with you at your time of treatment what type of pressure, technique, and areas of focus during your intake before your session. Please don’t be shy about asking for deeper or lighter pressure during your massage, as we would like for you to get the most out of your treatment.
Massage Therapy is beneficial for some of the following:
• Stress relief
• Managing anxiety and depression
• Blood pressure control
• Infant growth
• Sports-related injuries
• Boosting immunity
• Cancer treatment
All of our massage therapists are independent contractors. Gratuity is not expected, but appreciated if you really enjoyed your treatment!
