These are the specific modalities offered.
With a combination of Swedish, Myofascial Stretching, Deep Tissue, and Trigger Point techniques, an Integrated massage encompasses multiple modalities to elicit maximum benefits and provide relief from muscle pain and tension. One should experience improved joint mobility, reduction in adhesions/restrictions, and less chronic aches and pains.
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. The method engages the myofascial tissue and loads it with constant force until release occurs. To achieve this, practitioners can use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted fascia. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are reached.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) uses light touch therapy to release restrictions in soft tissue that surround the central nervous system. CST works on a wide range of medical issues by releasing tension throughout the entire body to promote pain and dysfunction relief and improve physical and mental health and wellness.*
From the first trimester up until your due date, prenatal massage can reduce stress, improve mobility, increase blood flow, and promote an overall well-being.
Postpartum massage can take place immediately following the birth of your child. Massage can reduce fascial restrictions/adhesions due to posture while holding/feeding your child, abnormal sleep habits, and the normal stresses placed on the body following a pregnancy.
Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle, light massage that helps to direct lymphatic fluid towards the lymph nodes. The lymphatic system is part of your immune system and cleans toxins, proteins, cancer cells, viruses, and dead cells about 20 times faster than the body is able to do on it's own. Once a large amount of toxins are eliminated, the body is able to relax more deeply and use it's energy more directly to regenerate the cells.
Reflexology is a technique that focuses on specific pressure points within your feet and hands to help correct energy flows throughout your body.

A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup allowing for an increase in blood & lymph flow systemically and to the local area, relaxes muscle tissue, draws out metabolic waste from the body, and releases numerous pain causing factors.*
