Relaxation & Recovery

A massage can be a way to relax, but it can also be a way to recover. Massage therapy can effectively reduce stress, pain, and muscle tension. Your massage therapist will evaluate your muscles, connective tissue, tendons, and ligaments to address any pain points or simply promote relaxation.

Recovery massage is designed to improve overall well-being both mentally and physically by increasing circulation, flexibility, and muscle engagement. It can help treat injuries, chronic pain, and decreased range of motion.

Your recovery massage will be customized to your needs. Whether you’re looking for relaxation or a therapeutic massage (or both), your massage therapist will discuss your treatment goals with you to eliminate any guesswork.

Deep tissue massage is similar to recovery massage but is more focused on deeper, specific tissue work. It’s recommended for those who need a deeper, stronger massage for tight muscles, chronic pain, or injuries.

During deep tissue massage, your therapist concentrates on deep muscles and connective tissue. Your therapist may use muscle kneading, slow strokes, and targeted pressure as part of this massage.

Hot stone massage uses heated stones to increase the body’s temperature, allowing the muscles to relax for easier muscle work. Depending on your needs, your hot stone massage can be used for both relaxation and pain relief.

Your massage therapist will use a combination of the heated stones and their hands. The combination helps ease muscle tension, improve circulation, reduce pain, and promote relaxation.

Hot stone massage is not recommended for those who are pregnant, sensitive to heat, or have high blood pressure.

Prenatal massage is designed for mothers in their 2nd or 3rd trimester looking for relaxation and pain relief. During the massage, you can lay on your side or on a full-body contoured pillow, allowing you to lay on your stomach safely and comfortably.

The massage can be tailored to pregnancy-specific pain or any other issues. Some common pain points during pregnancy include lax ligament pain, hip pressure, sciatic pinching, back pain, and shoulder or neck pain, causing aches or headaches.

If you are pregnant, specifically book a prenatal massage to ensure you’re seen by a trained prenatal massage therapist.

Myofascial cupping can be booked on its own as a full-body treatment or to complement any other type of massage. During the treatment, your massage therapist will use plastic or glass cups to create suction on the skin. The suction gently pulls underlying tissues, blood, and other fluids to the surface, away from your muscles.

Through this treatment, the suction works to increase circulation, breakdown tissue blockages, and actively stretch muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Myofascial cupping can help increase range of motion and treat pain.

Myofascial cupping is not recommended for individuals with connective tissue disorders, fractures, or certain types of cancer. Alert your therapist if you have a hernia, deep vein thrombosis, skin damage, or open wounds, as myofascial cupping cannot be done on these areas.

Trigger point therapy is a specific technique that is used to alleviate pain through isolated pressure and release. Treatment is generally performed with the therapist’s thumbs or specific trigger pointing tools. This treatment applies direct pressure onto trigger points which breaks the cycle of pain which has built up and kept a muscle area contracted.
