THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE OPTIONS

Massage Philosophy

We believe that massage is a lifestyle, not a luxury and is often the missing link in a healing process that includes chiropractic, orthopedic medicine, and physical therapy. We offer therapeutic massage options that supplement traditional therapies by restoring circulation and mobility to soft tissue, allowing it to function properly. This process is done in conjunction with chiropractic and physical therapy makes treatment more effective and helps you heal faster.

 

The type of techniques utilized during your treatment depends on your needs and on the skills and training of your therapist. During your intake, you and your therapist will discuss your goals to determine a plan that will help you achieve your therapeutic goals. All of the options below can be modified to fit your individual needs.

 

In regards to Deep Tissue and Trigger Point work, pain is NOT gain. Pain is your body asking to stop or to pay attention. Deeper pressure may be indicated in some cases, our goal is to help your muscles relax, not make them tense up more. So if you stop breathing or start to cringe, we will ease up on the pressure. Don't worry, we are focused on the muscle response, not on how tough you are (PS - we are sure you are very tough).

 

You are also encouraged to maintain a dialogue with your therapist during deep tissue and trigger point work to ensure that you are not in pain and that the treatment is effective. The goal is to make it "hurt so good", not actually hurt. Even so, you may experience soreness the next day. If the soreness lasts for more than a day, we should try a lighter pressure at your next session. Using heat or taking an Epsom salt bath, plus drinking lots of water after your session is a natural way to ease this discomfort.

Which therapeutic massage is right for you? 

THERAPEUTIC RELAXATION

Our therapeutic relaxation massage calms the body like meditation calms the mind. We use a combination of soothing techniques and light pressure to release stress and tension in the muscles. This full body treatment is gentle and engages your parasympathetic nervous system to induce a sense of peace and utter relaxation. 

COMPREHENSIVE DEEP TISSUE

​This option blasts away muscle pain and tension with deep tissue and trigger point work. Stretching and other modalities like hot stone are utilized to successfully treat the issues in your tissues. You and your therapists will create a treatment plan to help manage issues like frozen shoulder, sciatica, carpal tunnel, fibromyalgia, migraines, and more.​ Deep tissue doesn't have to mean deep pressure or pain. We can go deep to your comfort level and still be effective.

THERAPEUTIC HOT STONE MASSAGE

This specialty massage targets tense muscles with the moist heat and pressure of hot stones.  We use the stones as an effective therapeutic tool to release tension and trigger points quickly and with less discomfort than traditional deep tissue massage.  Aromatherapy is included at no extra charge (optional).

THERATRANCE SLEEP MASSAGE

Our TheraTrance Sleep Massage begins with a holistic sleep assessment and mini-sleep coaching session. You'll then climb onto a warm table fully clothed for a sleep massage that uses a combination of deep rhythmic pressure, gentle rocking, pressure points and reflex techniques to engage your body's natural relaxation system. Music, a darkened room, aromatherapy, a weighted blanket, and guided mediation will set you up for sleep success. Or you can request an in-home appointment for $15 more.

PRENATAL MASSAGE

​Prenatal Massage utilizes special bolstering and techniques to ensure that both mother and baby are safe and supported. We recommend this massage to expectant mothers who are healthy and who desire an active pregnancy with less discomfort. Depending on the stage and particulars of your pregnancy, you may receive some or all of the massage in a side-lying position. We use lighter pressure on specific areas but can go deeper on the neck and shoulders.

SPORTS MASSAGE

Sports Massage is ideal to treat injuries as well as a preventative treatment with the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of motion, balance, and quality of posture. This massage can be done clothed and with a more clinical atmosphere. 

THAI MASSAGE

Thai Massage, affectionately known as "lazy person's yoga", is an ancient energy-based massage done on a massage table with you fully clothed.  It combines acupressure, manual manipulation, and assisted yoga positions to facilitate deep relaxation and rejuvenation. It can be done on a mat or a table. 

REFLEXOLOGY

​Reflexology works on the "reflex areas" on the feet that are connected energetically to specific organs and body parts through energy channels in the body.  By your therapist applying pressure to these areas, they help remove energy blockages and promote the body's natural ability to heal.

HALF HOUR MASSAGE

Focus on your neck, shoulders, back or your feet and calves in this abbreviated massage. Please note that longer massages are typically more effective. This option can be received in a massage chair if getting onto a table is challenging for you.

Choose from the following: Scalp & Sinus Add-on Blasts away headache and sinus tension ​ Foot Focus Add-on Soothe your soles and relieve the symptoms of common foot issues such as plantar fasciitis and tendonitis ​ Reiki with Chakra Balancing  ​ CBD Lotion Add-On $10
