Swedish Massage…..$70.00 – 60 minutes
Swedish massage is excellent for promoting relaxation and reducing common effects of stress such as sleeplessness and muscle tension and spasms. Its gliding and kneading strokes help improve circulation so that chemical toxins can be released from the muscles and allowing fresh blood, oxygen, and nutrients into the muscles. This type of massage provides essential sensory input to the nervous system, thus improving nervous system functioning.
Deep Tissue/Myofascial Massage/Sports Massage…..$90.00 – 90 minutes
Deep Tissue massage is a more focused and direct form of massage that targets specific muscles and their attachment sites. It is an excellent form of massage for people who experience chronic pain associated with muscle tension and holding patterns. Deep Tissue massage encourages the muscles to return to their normal resting length. Its strokes can help break up adhesions and scar tissue, increase functional mobility (ease, range, and quality of movement), help separate muscles that become “fixed” to each other (differentiation) so that each muscle can perform properly, and help restore proper balance in the body.
Hot Stone Massage…..$75.00 – 60 minutes
