Kinesio Taping     $15.00 Per application

Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and to treat pain.
Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process. This Kinesio Taping exhibits its efficacy through the activation of neurological and circulatory systems. This method basically stems from the science of Kinesiology, hence the name “Kinesio”. Muscles are not only attributed to the movements of the body but also control the circulation of venous and lymph flows, body temperature, etc. Therefore, the failure of the muscles to function properly induces various kinds of symptoms.

 Swedish Massage:


Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
(60 minutes - $70, 90 minutes - $100, 120 minutes - $130)   

Deep Tissue Massage:


Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as "adhesions."(60 minutes - $70, 90 minutes - $100 120 minutes - $130) 

 

Sports Massage:


Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics.  Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term.  Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates.  Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body’s natural immune function.
(60 minutes - $70, 90 minutes - $100) 

 

Myofascial Release: 

Myofascial Release is based upon locating an area of fascial tension, gentle pressure is applied in the direction of the restriction. Myofascial release is an effective therapeutic approach in the relief of cervical pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological dysfunction, restriction of motion, chronic pain and headaches.
(60 minutes - $70, 90 minutes - $100)

 

Trigger Point Therapy: 

A trigger point is a hyperirritable spot that is painful. It is called a trigger point because it "triggers" a painful response.But a trigger point is more than a tender nodule. It affects not only the muscle where the trigger point is located, but also causes "referred pain" in tissues supplied by nerves.Trigger points are located in a taut band of muscles fibers. The trigger point is the most tender point in the band. The therapist will locate and deactivate them using finger pressure. One technique is to pick up the muscle fibers in a pincer grip.(60 minutes - $70, 90 minutes - $100, 120 minutes - $130)

 

PLEASE BE AWARE: If you feel you may be pregnant and are not sure, please refrain from booking until you have seen your doctor for confirmation. Please do not assume you are not, as a massage could harm your baby. I do not perform prenatal massage but have a wonderful referral for you.

Also please follow post massage instructions. In some cases based on length of time since last massage, frequency of exercise and type of massage received, these instructions can greatly reduce the soreness or discomfort. A massage is similar to a workout as the basics of massage involve the stretching and contraction of muscles. Drinking adequate water and use of moist heat can help greatly reduce the typical soreness associated with a deeper pressure massage.

 Corporate Chair Massage is also available at $1/minute. Please call with 2 weeks notice in order to make the arrangements for this service.
