Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is a powerful tool for alleviating back pain, stretching muscles to promote healing and increasing recovery time post-surgery. Provided by our nationally certified massage therapist you can choose from a variety of different techniques, all targeting different areas and offering different benefits.

  • Swedish massage is designed to relax the muscles by applying long, flowing strokes and movement in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.  It helps increase oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.  This is beneficial to patients who suffer from stiffness, numbness, pain and muscular strain.

  • Prenatal massage is beneficial for expectant mothers throughout their entire pregnancy. Receiving massage while pregnant can help ease the extra stress on your body, reduce swelling and fatigue, and even promote an easier labor.

  • Lymphatic massage is a gentle massage that encourages natural lymph drainage.  The lymphatic system moves waste and fluids from the tissues and also regulates the immune system.  By stimulating lymphatic action, the immune system can work more efficiently to clear blockages and eliminate toxins as well as delivering nutrients to cells.  It supports a healthy metabolism and can potentially help with cellulite.

  • Aromatherapy treatment offers a relaxing massage that is done in combination with plant oils that give off a strong, but pleasant aroma in an attempt to promote relaxation in the body and the mind. The aroma also helps promote a sense of well being and overall healing.

  • Reflexology technique involves applying pressure to certain points in the feet, which corresponds to various parts of the body to decrease pain and promote good health. But reflexology is more than an enjoyable foot rub. Instead, it’s based on the theory that certain points in the feet and hands are related to different organs and systems in the body. By applying pressure to these points, reflexology can improve the functioning of the systems.

  • Russian Medical technique differs from other forms of massage as it not only relieves pain by treating the primary muscle groups of the affected area but follows the nervous system to identify and treat the accessory muscle groups surrounding the primary affected area as well, promoting healing and alleviating pain.
