GERIATRIC MASSAGE

Known as the classic relaxation massage, Swedish massage targets superficial muscle and soft tissue through a combination of manual techniques.  Done using lotion,  it's ideal for treating sore muscles, reducing physical, mental and emotional tension & stress, and improving overall circulation.   It's also great for pampering yourself!

 


SWEDISH MASSAGE

Unaddressed physical trauma such as accidents, injury,  prolonged stress, scar tissue or postural distortions can make the body more vulnerable to pain, dysfunction and further injury.  Though deeper soft tissue work, neuromuscular therapy seeks to re-stabilize the neurological activity between the muscular and nervous system, and bring the body back into balance. 

 


Long used by professional and highly skilled amateur athletes to enhance performance, reduce injury potential and speed post-activity recovery, sports massage is for everybody.   We can do pre-event and post-event sessions on location as well as recovery sessions in our office.

ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING (AIS)

 As we age, our bodies change.  Joints become less flexible, skin becomes thinner, muscles and soft tissue can lose tone, circulation can slow.  These changes make it all the more critical that older adults receive the tremendous physical and emotional benefits of massage and gentle stretching.  Geriatric massage uses the same basic massage techniques as general massage, however, it is tailored to the specific health conditions and needs of each older individual. 


Cancer or Oncology massage is soft tissue bodywork that is adapted  to meet the specific needs of an individual who has been in the past or is currently dealing with cancer and it's treatment.   Massage brings a unique focus to the mind, body and spirit of a cancer patient; one of nurturing attention, support and empowerment.  

 


CANCER MASSAGE

AIS is a protocol of specialized, repetitive stretches, performed in a specific order targeting muscle and connective tissue injury and restriction.  It's an extremely effective way to increase flexibility and decrease muscle pain and restriction.  Done with loose clothing on, it's ideal for everyone from the professional athlete to the weekend warrior to baby boomers to nursing home residents.
