Therapeutic massage

Your RMT will use specialized advanced techniques which may include Trigger Point therapy, Myofascial release, Active Release, Craniosacral therapy and deep tissue techniques.  Therapeutic massage treats conditions such as overuse injuries (i.e. tendinitis, carpal tunnel syndrome), sports injuries/recovery, whiplash and other injuries. When doing therapeutic massage your RMT will be able to zoom in and focus in on a few key areas to offer you the relief you need from your tense and painful areas.

We believe that therapeutic massage doesn’t have to hurt to get good results, although some people love the ‘good pain’ of a deep pressure massage – which we are happy to provide.  We always work at your comfort level. Communication with your massage therapist is vital to ensure you are getting a treatment that is within  your comfort level.

Myofascial Cupping Massage

A modern adaptation of traditional cupping techniques that were used to stimulate energy meridians and physical structures.  This new approach to cupping can effectively focus on adhesions in the fascia. Gentle suction results in negative pressure on the skin, which aids release. It can be used on its own to restore soft-tissue mobility or it can be combined with other techniques to increase the effectiveness of the treatment.

Hot Stone Massage

LaStone® Therapy is the original stone therapy treatment. It is a deeply relaxing treatment that combines massage therapy with the use of heated and chilled stones (geo-thermal therapy). The physiological benefits of alternating hot and cold to the body have long been scientifically and medically proven. The stones are the medium and the hot and cold temperatures are the message. This “vascular gymnastics” of the circulatory system assists the body in self-healing and returning to balance. An authentic LaStone® treatment administers this principle with unerring elegance; producing sedative and re-energizing responses to the body.  This hot stone massage treatment brings relief to stiff and sore muscles; resulting in alleviation of chronic and acute conditions that many of us deal with on a daily basis. LaStone® Therapy will leave you feeling balanced, renewed, and re-energized.

Laura received her training directly from Mary Nelson, founder of LaStone® Therapy, the original hot and cold stone therapy treatment.Helps to release tension and promotes good circulation.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral TherapyCraniosacral Therapy is a gentle hands-on approach to wellness which increases body awareness and the mind/body connection. The craniosacral system is like the body’s main electrical conduit so it’s important to keep a clear path for this flow to be unrestricted.

Excellent for many conditions on the physical level such as headaches, TMJ dysfunction, back pain and trauma that is stored in the tissues.  On the emotional level craniosacral therapy helps to support healing from  emotional trauma, old wounds, and current stressors. Some clients even have profound spiritual experiences; the  outcomes of this type of modality are very unique to the individual, based on their needs and intentions at that time.

Energy work is usually combined with Craniosacral therapy, which is a natural progression since many of the hand placements are on or near the chakras of the body. Please contact us if you have any questions!
