MASSAGE THERAPY
We provide a variety of different types of massage therapy including Swedish, Deep Tissue, Sports Injury, Craniol-Sacral , Visceral Manipulation and Thai Massage. All treatments are available by appointment in our newly remodeled treatment room or if you prefer, we’ll send a therapist to your home.

Deep Tissue and Sports Massage utilizes specific strokes to access the deeper layers of soft tissue. By removing adhesions (knots) from muscles and tendons (including ligaments in the joints), dramatic improvements in range of motion and flexibility can be achieved as well as a reduction in pain when present. A tight muscle is a weak muscle; natural strength is gained back when a muscle returns to its normal length. To ensure gains made are not temporary, movement pattern and posture issues are also addressed.
$100 for one hour. $120 for in-home visits.

Compressive Deep Tissue Massage (CDTM) couples time honored Eastern barefoot techniques with Western physiologic approaches and anatomic understanding. Prolonged deep compressions help to soften and spread tight muscles, and encourage relaxation. This technique is performed with the client fully clothed lying on a cushioned mat with lots of pillows, it can be used as an effective warm up prior to table work, or as a deep tissue, full body massage.
$100 for one hour. $120 for in-home visits.

Visceral Manipulation, more affectionately known as ‘belly work’, involvesa specifically placed gentle touch that works to encourage the normal mobility, tone and motion of the viscera (belly) and the connective tissue membranes that surround each of the body's organ systems. It encourages your own natural mechanisms of healing through improvement in organ function; belly work is especially beneficial for those with digestive issues, depression and anxiety issues.
$100 for one hour. $120 for in-home visits.

Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle method of optimizing the body's craniosacral system (consisting of thin membranes and cerebrospinal fluid which surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord) in an attempt to improve the function of the central nervous system, dissipate the negative effects of stress and enhance health and resistance to disease. This type of work is especially beneficial to anyone who has ever been hit on the head, worn braces, suffers from motion sickness or vertigo, had dental surgery, teeth grinding, thyroid issues, headaches or migraines, and many others...

Thai Massage: The healing art of Thai massage is a tradition that has been practiced for over 2, 500 years. The intention of a Thai massage is to guide the recipient into a state of balance. A Thai massage is practiced on a mat on the floor and the recipient is fully clothed. The massage is a rhythmic combination of gentle stretching, compressions, energy work, acupressure, and Yoga. The massage is very dynamic. As the receiver is moved through a sequence of postures tailored to his or her individual needs, tight muscles and busy minds are relaxed and stagnant energy becomes released stimulating the body’s healing process. To prepare for a Thai massage, it is recommended not to eat at least one hour prior to the massage. Wear loose and comfortable clothing. For recipient’s comfort, it is advised to take time prior to session to cleanse the hands and feet.
$90 for one hour, $115 for 75 minutes, $140 for 90 minutes, plus $10 travel for in-home visits.

Deep Swedish:This traditional massage will induce relaxation and promote stress reduction. The techniques used help relax the muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. There are five main strokes; petrissage (kneading), effleurage (stroking), friction, tapotement (tapping), and vibration. Some deeper techiniques including trigger point therapy can be used in problem areas. The amount of pressure used is determined by the client. You can choose a whole body massage or request work on just a specific area such as neck and shoulders. For a whole body massage you are warmly draped at all times except for the area being worked on. You will leave with a feeling of complete relaxation.
$85 for one hour. $115 for one and one half hour. Plus $10 travel for in-home visits.
