Massage Therapy - Descriptions

Lymphatic drainage

is a gentle, rhythmic massage that relieves congestion of the lymphatic system, enhances circulation, reduces edema and stimulates the system to eliminate toxins.

Pregnancy Massage

Pregnancy massage is safe and can be enjoyed throughout the entire prenatal period. This treatment can help alleviate the physical discomfort associated with pregnancy as well as other related symptoms such as:

  • increased circulation
  • improved digestion
  • reduced fatigue, more energy
  • fewer leg cramps
  • alleviates stress on weight bearing joints
  • decrease insomnia
  • help maintain proper posture
  • reduces stress hormones and increase mood and mental attitude

Massage during pregnancy is completely safe and in fact encouraged. Mothers are placed in a position that is comfortable for mom and safe for the baby.  The most common position is for the mom’s to lie on their sides. Pillows are used to keep the mothers body in an elevated position to maintain comfort and good circulation. Pregnancy massage is provided by using a variety of techniques such as Swedish massage, Breathing and Visualization Education and Self-care at home. The treatments can be altered to meet the needs of a woman experiencing higher risks or complications during their pregnancy.

Pregnancy is a joyous time but can be quite stressful on your physical body.  Studies have shown that women who get regular massage increase their overall well-being by decreasing stress hormones, decreasing pain (especially in the lower back and hips) and allows for statistically better birth outcomes.  All of our RMT’s are experienced with massage in all stages of pregnancy and would welcome you to our safe sanctuary.

Registered Massage Therapists focus on meeting the therapeutic needs of the expectant mother as she goes through the physical and emotional changes related to the childbearing experience.

Infant Massage

Our little ones are just mini-adults who enjoy the benefits of massage just like the rest of us.  Studies have shown that massage in infants promotes better sleep, boosts immune system, helps digestion and promotes overall happiness and relaxation.  All of our RMT’s are very comfortable with infant massage and look forward to working with you as you parent your child towards health.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is beneficial to everyone involved with sporting activities and exercise. Pre/post event massage helps to maintain and increase range of motion, reduce lactic acid, decrease residual pain and tension, enhance performance and expendability.

Sport massage can be beneficial for conditioning and training, pre/post competition and injury prevention. The focus of Sport Massage Therapy is on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance therefore the client can expect a more aggressive, deeper therapeutic massage treatment.
