Massage Techniques

Techniques we may offer include:


For generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation.

Deep tissue

For chronic tension, increasing range of motion, improving posture, and enhancing self-awareness.

Trigger point or neuromuscular therapy

Applies concentrated finger pressure to "trigger points" or "active knots" (painful irritated areas in muscles) to break cycles of spasm and pain.

Sports massage

Help prevent athletic injury, keep the body flexible, and heal the body should injury occur.


Provides gentle relaxed movements which can invigorate the circulatory, respiratory, and neuromuscular systems by increasing flexibility, enhancing performance, reducing injury, and keeping joints pliable.

Pregnancy massage

Can reduce pregnancy discomforts prenatally.

Chair massage

Massage of the upper body, while fully clothed and seated in a special portable chair.


Application of pressure, stretch, and movement to the feet and hands to affect the glands, organs, and other parts of the body. Reflexologists view the feet and hands as a mirror image of the body and apply techniques to break up patterns of stress in other areas of the body. It can be performed in a 30- or 60-minute session or combined with an overall massage.
