Swedish Massage 

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Neck Massage

Deep Tissue Massage 

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Cupping Massage 

Cupping is a suction technique using plastic “cups” on the skin to pull toxin build-up and muscle spasm out of the deeper tissue of the body, towards the surface of the body.  When we feel “pain,” tenderness, or discomfort, there is some physiologic blockage in the flow of energy. The more blockage, the harder it is for the body to remove the obstruction and discomfort.

Shoulder Treatment

Post-Op

Medical massage is outcome-based massage, primarily the application of a specific treatment targeted to the specific problem the patient presents with a diagnosis and are administered after a thorough assessment/evaluation by the medical massage therapist with specific outcomes being the basis for treatment

Oncology Therapy

Oncology treatments are modified according to the full spectrum of cancer-related issues: the physical, psycho-social, and emotional consequences of cancer. In addition, the person's individual goals are considered and aspects of the disease and cancer treatment side effects.
