Styles

Senior Massage

Massage Therapists: Elisabeth and Shirlene

Therapeutic and accupressure touch and gentle massage are offered to seniors in carefully customized and administered treatments, drawing from Swedish massage (gliding, rubbing and kneading strokes) combined with Comfort Touch techniques (gentle cupping, holding and compressing) and energy work. Focus may range from the full body to just hands, feet or shoulders. Clients may receive massage disrobed (as is typical in traditional massage) or remain fully clothed, in loose, comfortable clothing. Lotion or oil may be used on exposed areas.

 

Gua Sha Massage

Massage Therapist: Shirlene

Gua sha, meaning "scraping sha-bruises", is a traditional Chinese medical treatment in which the skin is scraped to produce light bruising. Practitioners believe gua sha releases unhealthy elements from injured areas and stimulates blood flow and healing.

 

Moxabustion Massage

Massage Therapist: Shirlene

Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called "moxa" are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The intention is to warm and invigorate the flow of Qi (the energy in everything) in the body and dispel certain pathogenic influences.

 

Myofascial Release

Massage Therapist: Shirlene

Myofascial release (or MFR) is an alternative medicine therapy that claims to treat skeletal muscle immobility and pain by relaxing contracted muscles, improving blood and lymphatic circulation, and stimulating the stretch reflex in muscles.

 

Prenatal Massage

Massage Therapist: Shirlene

Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).

 

Shiatsu Massage

Massage Therapist: Shirlene

Shiatsu is a manipulative therapy developed in Japan and incorporating techniques of anma (Japanese traditional massage), acupressure, stretching, and Western massage. Shiatsu involves applying pressure to special points or areason the body in order to maintain physical and mental well being, treat disease, or alleviate discomfort.

 

Sports Massage

Massage Therapist: Shirlene

Sports massage is 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.

 

Swedish Relaxation Massage

Massage Therapists: Elisabeth and Shirlene

Massage for relaxation brings a healthy balance to the body – decreases stress and muscle tension, increases circulation and helps restore the mind-body connection. It is what we think of as traditional massage in the west, incorporating soothing strokes that glide and knead. Pressure ranges from light to medium and oil or lotion is used for lubrication. Along with the many benefits of relaxation, this style of massage is also effective in releasing areas of muscle tension and soreness.

 

Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage

Massage Therapists: Elisabeth and Shirlene

Therapeutic Deep Tissue massage goes beyond its Swedish base, bringing additional techniques, deeper pressure and specific focus to areas of the body that need extra attention. Deeper pressure is used, as well as stretching, passive range of motion, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and more.

 

Thai Massage

Massage Therapist: Shirlene

Through this sophisticated sequence of deep rhythmic acupressure to muscles and Sen (energy) lines during assisted stretches and yoga-like postures, this integrated approach stimulates the body’s natural healing ability by unblocking the flow, resulting in an enlivened calm with the recipient.
