Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage deals with the treatment of specific tendons, muscles, knots (or trigger points). A focused pressure is applied to these afflicted areas which are stretched and released. This technique can be blended seamlessly with Swedish massage.

Myofascial Release

An excellent technique for easing joint pain that has adhesions and scar tissue forming around it. The afflicted area tissues are rolled, stretched and released with the aim of full restoration. The treatment is perfect for lower back pain, hand and wrist cramps and even helps people with plantar fascitis.

Swedish Massage

This is perhaps the most well known or common massage technique, and surprisingly doesn’t actually come from Sweden. It is a very relaxed form of massage and different pressures can be applied to it and it is perfect for relaxation or even helping injuries.

It helps the body to heal itself by changing the body’s energy from guarding to healing, and this helps to reduce stress and increase the immune system. It’s also perfect for those people suffering sleep problems because of the way theta waves are generated in the brain through its therapeutic form, which helps release growth hormone.

Postural Analysis

Misaligned posture can cause all kinds of chronic pains throughout the body. The postural analysis measures the body as you first come in, and then again throughout treatments as we re-align your joints and help you move towards proper posture again.

Injury Treatment

Get your healing of repetitive injuries, work injury and auto accident, sports injuries, whiplash, CTS, chronic back pain, headaches, and so on with our injury treatment protocols. Along with postural analysis, our aim to is get you back to full health as quickly as possible.

We accept PIP, Third Party, and L&I cases.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage helps to induce a relaxed parasympathetic state which helps to relieve many aches and pains that pregnancy causes. This massage helps both mother and baby to help keep a more healthy and relaxed state of being.

Please do not hesitate in asking our fully trained massage therapist in whatever combination of the above techniques and treatments to help you. Ultimately, we want to see you leave more relaxed and in less pain than you arrived.
