Deep Tissue Massage
30/60/90 minute options
Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage with focus and deeper pressure on specific areas of need and chronic muscle tension. This therapy uses medium to firm pressure head to toe if you so wish, with firmer pressure used on the areas of need. Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia, the protective layer surrounding your muscles bones and joints. It is also beneficial for breaking up scar tissues caused by injuries new and old.

Massage therapy through pregnancy is a wonderful choice for overall wellness and stress relief for expectant mothers. In addition prenatal massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as headaches, backaches, stiff shoulders and neck, feet and leg cramps often caused from swelling. Laying on your side or the "Sideline position" is used with supportive, soft cushions and pillows to alleviate extra strain on the lower back and pelvic area when the pressure of massage techniques are applied. Through the second trimester, you may prefer to lie on your back with a small cushion or pillow placed under one hip/lower back to provide slight elevation to help avoid additional pressure. Every effort will be made to make you as comfortable as possible.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which your certified therapist uses special cups on your skin that create suction. The suction creates separation in the layers of your muscle tissue, helping to increase blood flow; which, break up blockages, scar tissues, and any other build up within your muscle tissue. This is a deep tissue service. For more information or feel free to ask your therapist as many questions as necessary to make you comfortable with this modality.
