The benefits of massage include stress reduction, tension reduction, pain reduction, as well as a reduction in heart rate and blood pressure. It improves blood and lymphatic circulation and provides or restores a sense of well-being.
Massage therapy is no longer considered solely a luxury but in fact has many scientifically proven physiological benefits. Many insurance companies recognize this and now have massage therapy benefits covered.
We currently have 2 massage therapists on our team. All are registered massage therapists with their 2200 hour certifications. Our billing is based on the amount of time booked (30-120 minutes), and not the level of pressure administered or the body parts treated. That is because we want every massage you get with us to meet your needs, not your budget. With a fixed price for time, you and your therapist can decide together what you would most like to accomplish out of your visit and adjust the type of massage to suit you and your goals.
This is a classic massage treatment with the goal to relax the entire body through the use of long strokes with light to medium pressure. This type of massage addresses stress, tension, and mild to moderate muscle discomfort by improving circulation and flexibility and decreasing tension. If you are a first time massage client this is a great massage to start with.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is designed to go deeper into the connective tissue, fascia, and deeper muscles with the goal of decreasing tension, decreasing pain, and increasing circulation. This enhances healing and improves function. This technique uses medium to heavy pressure to accomplish its goals.
PLEASE BE ADVISED: this type of massage can be painful during and can leave you sore and tender for a couple of days afterwards -- ask your therapist for tips to help ease any post-massage discomfort
