TYPES OF MASSAGE

All of our messages are tailored to your individual needs. We offer a variety of massage types at no additional cost, such as; Swedish, Deep Tissue, Trigger Point, Sports Therapy, Cranial Sacral, and Prenatal. Your therapist will adjust the pressure and technique to give you the best massage.

 

SWEDISH

The primary goal of Swedish massage is to relax the whole body. Techniques include long strokes, circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, and firm kneading.

 

DEEP TISSUE

Similar to Swedish, but deeper pressure to release muscle tension causing chronic pain.

 

TRIGGER POINT

Cycles of isolated pressure and release. You participate in deep breathing exercises while the therapist focuses on the area of discomfort. Not recommended for guests that are wanting a relaxing experience.

 

SPORTS THERAPY

Targets the area where muscles connect to tendons. For athletes of all types.

 

CRANIAL SACRAL

Therapeutic touch administered to the head, neck, and other troublesome areas to increase the exchange of cerebrospinal fluid.

 

PRENATAL

Our tables have a removable section to make it more comfortable for pregnant women and all of our massage therapists are trained in prenatal bodywork. Not recommended in the first trimester.

 

Please be aware that after a massage some bodily discomfort, muscular tenderness, and reddening of the skin, as well as other normal body responses associated with touch therapy may occur. It is recommended to drink plenty of water after a massage to rehydrate and help flush out your system.
