Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve pain and muscle tension throughout the body. Deep tissue technique uses very little to no lubricant. Strokes will be considerably slower as the therapist waits for a slow release of tension. This type of massage therapy is extremely beneficial because it reaches the deepest layers of muscle, fascia and tendons. It helps breakdown adhesions, alleviate pain, increase mobility and improve overall function of the body.
Relaxation massage is a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax. The massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure. In a relaxation massage, there is less emphasis on working out chronic underlying muscle tension — the adhesions or “knots” and muscle restrictions in the muscle tissue. That’s because deep tissue work can be uncomfortable, and during a relaxation massage you just want to drift away and feel good.
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a very effective hands-on interactive technique that provides stretching, compression and sustained pressure into restricted areas of fascia (connective tissue) in the body to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Prenatal massage therapy is a soothing and natural treatment for swelling, muscle tension, and general discomfort associated with pregnancy. Registered Massage Therapists (RMTs) use unique techniques to decrease muscle spasms related to postural changes and ligament laxity, as well as to improve circulation and drainage.

Micro Point Stimulation Therapy
Designed to treat chronic and acute soft tissue pain and scars and adhesions by applying concentrated microcurrent impulses to trigger, motor, and acupuncture points, providing quick and effective pain relief for a long list of medical conditions.
