Muscle Rehabilitation
  1. Sports/Deep Tissue
    The main purpose of Sports massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. Sports Massage helps to reduce stress, both physical and emotional. Sports massage also stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable, and stimulates the skin and sooth the nervous system at the same time.
  2. Shiatsu & BodyBalance
    Sotai Therapy, Shiatsu & BodyBalance Therapy is intended to be a method of neuromuscular reeducation and unwinding muscular holding patterns and balances the nervous and muscular systems. These structural distortions can be returned to a more normal condition by moving the body in the comfortable direction.
  3. Hot Stones
    Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat helps tight muscles release. When muscles are heated the tissue is more pliable and the therapist is able to work deeper with less tension and pain for the client.
  4. Smart Tools
    We are certified in the use of Smart Tools to assist the body tissue to heal. IASTM aka “Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization,” is a manual therapy approach to musculoskeletal injuries using specifically designed tools. The most effective material for IASTM is stainless steel, which SMART Tools are comprised. SMART Tools were developed to assist in effective treatment of adhesions and scarring brought on by surgeries, injuries, and overuse of muscles.
Injury Rehabilitation
consists of recognizing what the problem is, what the best form of treatment is and then strengthening the muscles that are involved with the original injury to prevent re-injury.
Sometimes this involves working out old scar tissue, helping new scar tissue to bond properly, looking for muscle imbalances and teaching specialized muscle strengthening exercises and stretching exercises.


Injury Rehab
  1. Sports Therapy
    Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind and the particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete's sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
  2. Deep Tissue
    Deep Tissue is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body with deep strokes on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber's of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
  3. Trigger Point Therapy
    A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache.
  4. Myofascial Release
    During myofascial release therapy, the therapist locates myofascial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable under light manual pressure. These areas, though not always near what feels like the source of pain, are thought to restrict muscle and joint movements, which contributes to widespread muscle pain.
Energy has been around forever, since the beginning of time. We all have experienced various states of energy and different transformations in our lives. Chinese Acupuncture which began over 2000 years ago believes in Energy Meridians that circulate throughout your body and affect the way your organs respond and work in your body to create a balance and sustain health.
Albert Einstein believed and spoke of Energy and spent his lifetime studying energy. Quantum Physics has proven to us that everything in our environment, including our own bodies vibrates. Everything we see around us vibrates at different frequencies.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction.
People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system (which makes it an excellent treatment for high blood pressure). Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism, and even cellulite.
