Registered Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissue, and skin. Treatments aim to alleviate pain and improve physical function by enhancing the circulation of blood and lymphatic fluids. A variety of techniques may be utilized depending on individual needs, including trigger point therapy, fascial work, deep tissue therapy, muscle stripping, joint play, stretching, and muscle energy techniques. The ultimate goal is to eliminate pain, restore mobility, improve posture, relieve mental and physical stress, and assist you with ways to maintain good health. Often pain and dysfunction occur as a result of muscle imbalance. We help to identify and treat the cause of the problem in order to prevent its recurrence.

Pregnancy Massage

Although pregnancy can be a wonderful time, it can also be a physically uncomfortable time. Massage therapy during pregnancy has been shown to decrease pain, stress hormones, anxiety, and obstetrical complications.  Your therapist works with you to provide an effective, safe, and comfortable treatment that will enhance your pregnancy and birth experience.

Bowen

Bowen Therapy or “Bowenwork” is a gentle, non-invasive, hands-on therapy developed by Tom Bowen in Australia. It is often referred to as the “homeopathy of bodywork” for its ability to draw on the body’s natural desire to heal itself and return to a state of wellness. Using small, measured inputs or “moves”, this technique is done on specific areas of the body (over muscle, tendon, ligament and nerve), in specific sequences, delivering signals to the nervous system that relay information about areas of tension, pain and injury. The body is then allowed to respond in its own time, to begin healing itself, often profoundly. There are very few contraindications but this therapy is appropriate for all ages.
