Swedish Massage
The most well known of the massage techniques. The basic strokes are flowing and rhythmical, facilitating and encouraging improved circulation, deep relaxation, and bliss as tension melts away and yields to a state of harmony.

Prenatal Massage
Known to minimize the discomfort that occurs during pregnancy, this massage relieves fluid congestion and pressure due to weight gain, dissolves tensions, encourages healthy circulation, and promotes restful sleep.

Deep Tissue Massage
This technique helps with chronic muscular pain, muscle spasm, and injury rehabilitation, and can reduce inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendonitis. The pressure used is specific to your body’s needs and is generally integrated with other massage techniques.

Myofascial Release
Myofascial Release focuses on identifying and easing fascial restrictions in the soft tissue of the body. Fascia is the connective tissue “web” that interpenetrates every part of the body and supports and protects every other body system. By applying a pressure over time to these restrictions, the tension is eased, creating space and freedom of movement. More space in the soft tissues relieves symptoms, increases circulation, and allows the body to effortlessly adopt a more balanced posture. This technique is done without oils, and clients are dressed on the table (men wear shorts, women wear a sports bra and shorts).

Shiatsu
Shiatsu stimulates the flow of energy and circulation in the body by applying deep pressure to the meridian points (acupuncture points). Shiatsu is used to create a general sense of well-being and relaxation. No massage oil is applied. The client remains clothed during the treatment.

Myopathic Muscular Therapy
Myopathic Muscular Therapy originates from the osteopathic tradition and is especially helpful for tight muscles. Gentle compressions are first employed to calm the nervous system, then stubborn knots are addressed with deeper pressure and by stretching small segments of contracted muscle. This unblocks the circulation and removes waste products. Over several sessions, muscles begin to remember how to maintain a more relaxed state. Clients report much relief from pain and restriction. Single sessions can be very helpful, best results are achieved when the treatment is initiated with three sessions over three days. Oils are not used in this therapy.

Reflexology
Thousands of nerve endings from every part of the body reside in the feet. In reflexology, these are stimulated, creating whole body relaxation. Studies show stimulation of the feet affects specific organs, relieving pain and improving blood flow and function.

Jin Shin Jyutsu
Jin Shin Jyutsu is the art of restoring the body’s subtle energies to optimal functioning. When the energy flows properly, harmony is created in our physical, mental, and emotional aspects. The process involves the application of minimal pressure on sites that “jump-start” the flow of energy throughout the body. The client remains clothed during the treatment. Clients often report feeling deeply relaxed, and many can feel the energy flowing and moving through blockages. Jin Shin Jyutsu is helpful for everyday ailments as well as deeper trauma. While one session is very helpful, the benefits are greater with repeated sessions (for example, from weekly sessions up to 20 sessions over 10 days). Benefits can be maintained by learning to do Jin Shin Jyutsu on yourself.

60 minutes – $75; Package of 3 – $210

Bowen Therapy
Developed by Tom Bowen in Australia, this work targets the energetic and nervous system to improve the structural integrity of the body. Bowen is different than other therapies in that a small number of movements are done on the body, alternating with periods of rest. During the rest periods, subtle energetic integration occurs, which creates a state of relaxation that deepens with subsequent treatments. It has a great effect on the lymph system, which helps detoxify the body. The work is done over light, loose clothing, and multiple people can be seen at one time.

Because of the depth of the detoxification, some people experience fatigue for a day or two after their sessions. Clients are asked to drink lots of water, to take a walk, and to keep moving throughout the day of their treatment. Other bodywork therapies tend to stop the Bowen therapy from working, and clients are asked not to get other bodywork for at least a week. Some conditions are helped in one session, while others need a series of weekly sessions to be effective.

Bowen may help all kinds of structural issues, fatigue, and more internal issues such as digestive complaints as well as breathing and immune disorders. Many people report feeling more peaceful after receiving these sessions.

30-45 minutes – $50; Package of 3 – $135

Rosen Therapy
