Medical Massage is aimed at restoring function and reducing pain after a catastrophic collision injury. These sessions consist of scar tissue release, neuromuscular re-education, myofascial release for conditions such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, multiple fractures, or neurological disorders. You must call us first to book, to see if your insurance will cover your sessions.
ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a powerfully precise stretching technique that targets specific muscle groups, and parts of the muscle. It can increase the benefits of a regular massage, especially increasing range of motion and flexibility. Best if you have very limited range of motion, or muscle tightness due to sports, injury, or neurological conditions. (Such as Tenosynovitis, Shoulder Impingement, or Multiple Sclerosis)
An Integrative Massage (previously "Therapeutic Massage") is tailored to your unique needs. These sessions are conducted on the table, undressed to your level of comfort, and is best if you like oil used for your massage. Using a variety of techniques including; swedish relaxation massage, myofascial release, positional release, reflexology, trigger point release, active isolated stretching, and more.
This session is a combination of techniques that are best if you have pain that is acute, chronic, or specific. These sessions begin with a detailed orthopedic injury assessment.

This session is great if you’re looking to increase flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and find lasting stress-relief. This service is conducted completely clothed on a large floor-mat and is best if you like deep pressure. It is inspired by various massage and bodywork techniques including Thai Massage, Active Isolated Stretching, Reflexology, Myofascial Release, and Muscle Energy Techniques.

Massage moves fluids out of your tissues, and into your urinary system. You may need to go to the bathroom after your session. To replenish all that fluid, and to keep waste moving out of your tissues...it's important to stay hydrated & warm.
FINAL NOTE: Chronic postural, medical or emotional issues are best addressed over time. Please do not put the expectation of "instant healing" on yourself or your therapist. For best results, we can work out a treatment plan for your specific goals.
