Rehabilitative Massage:

Rehabilitative Massage uses a combination of therapeutic massage techniques with the specific focus of restoring tissue function following injury.


  • shortens healing time
  • reduces swelling and edema
  • increases range of motion
  • improves muscle function

Deep Tissue Massage:

Deep Tissue Massage uses therapeutic massage directed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscles and fascia (connective tissue).  More targeted and intense than Swedish Massage, but using the same general technique.


  • reduces pain
  • improves circulation
  • reduces muscle spasm
  • breaks up adhesions in muscle tissue
  • encourages healing

Sports Massage:

Sports Massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training.  Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons.


  • enhances athletic performance
  • reduces muscle tension
  • decreases delayed onset muscle soreness
  • decreases muscle stiffness and fatigue after exercise

Swedish Massage:

Swedish Massage is the most widely recognized type of massage. It is used to relax the mind and body


  • pain relief
  • relieves of joint stiffness
  • improved function in patients with osteoarthritis
  • increased circulation
  • Reduces stress and promotes relaxation

Trigger Point Therapy:

Trigger Points are small areas of hyperirritability within muscles.  They are classified as either active or latent.  Active trigger points cause localized muscle pain as well as referred pain in another part of the body.  Latent trigger points only cause pain when pressure is applied directly to the muscle, and do not cause referred pain.


  • relieves pain and dysfunction
  • increases flexibility and range of motion
  • decreases swelling and stiffness
  • relieves muscle tension
  • improves circulation

Neuromuscular Massage:

Neuromuscular Massage is a form of manual therapy to treat chronic pain. Techniques consist of focused, concentrated massage and quasi-static pressure on one specific area of the body or muscle group. It is used to deactivate trigger points, lengthen chronically shortened muscles, balance muscle groups, and address postural dysfunction.


  • increases blood flow in the muscle
  • increases flexibility
  • improves biomechanical function
  • decreases muscle tension and chronic pain
  • decreases edema
  • supports post-operative healing
  • facilitates healing and supports the immune system
  • promotes healing of scar tissue, torn ligaments, and sprains

Manual Lymph Drainage:

Manual Lymph Drainage is a gentle rhythmic technique that stimulates the lymphatic/immune system to move inflammation and toxins out of the system


  • increased circulation of lymph - helps redirect stagnant fluid in the skin
  • toxins are removed, making lymphatic drainage effective in tissue regeneration
  • chronic pain is reduced
  • muscle spasms reduced
  • decreases edema
  • supports post-healing
  • facilitates healing and supports the immune system
  • fosters deep relaxation
  • component to the treatment of Lymphedema
