SWEDISH MASSAGE

Relaxation massage

Swedish   Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork.  It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling,  
kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The  
benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief  
from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced  
mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Therapeutic massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to  
misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to  
the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the  
session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in
mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that  
plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal
of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the
 session.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Trigger points massage

Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas
of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the  
belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body.  
These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical,  
mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is  
applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger  
points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are
 lasting and profoundly transformative

PRENATAL MASSAGE

Therapeutic massage

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage - to relax tense  muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just
make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of  pregnant women and their changing bodies, we are therapists who are  
trained in prenatal massage and adjust our techniques accordingly
