Lymphatic Massage - The Lymphatic system’s job is to detoxify bodily fluids before they are circulated into the blood stream. The Lymphatic system moves the fluids through the body and then to the liver. Toxemia and swelling is a result of the Lymphatic system not working properly. Lymphatic massage reduces muscle swelling, which increases blood flow, which in turn supports proper Lymphatic system functioning.

Myofascial Release - Myofascial release involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions. The massage relaxes the contracted muscles and increases venous and lymphatic drainage. Myofascial release treats somatic dysfunction and relieves the accompanying pain and limited range of motion.

Sports Massage — Sports massage works on the connective tissue and deep muscle structures. The massage is applied using hard and deep strokes, combined with finger pressure. Sports massage is specifically designed to increase flexibility and prevent injuries. It is specifically designed for the types of injuries obtained during athletic activity.

Rehabilitative Massage – Rehabilitative massage is designed to support healing of injuries and restoring full range of motion. Active Release, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular Therapy are examples of rehabilitative massage techniques that locate the source of spasms and tension. The therapist focuses on these muscles to restore them to their natural state.

Deep Tissue Massage - The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons,and fascia (the protective layer surrounding the muscles, bones and joints). The deeper pressure action is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.

Prenatal Massage - Massage during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression,  relieve muscle aches and joint pain and improve labor outcomes and newborn health.
