Pain Relief Massage  (60 minutes/$95; 90 min/$142; 120 min/$190)

Are you looking for some relief from acute or chronic discomfort or pain? Look no further. What is the difference between a Focused Deep Tissue and a "Pain Relief Massage"? Your therapist's training is the biggest difference. The therapists trained in Clinical Massage Therapy (CMT) have been through at least a year of training in advanced bodywork. Clinical Massage Therapy (CMT) incorporates Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Acupressure, and other advanced massage techniques to relieve pain and increase range of motion. CMT helps to resolve problems related to pain conditions, chronic postural dysfunction, decreased range of motion, repetitive use injuries, and other specific muscular pathologies. You will not receive a full body massage, instead your massage will be focused on the areas causing the discomfort. Your CMT therapist is trained to customize this profoundly healing work for your needs. Additionally, as determined by your needs and your therapist, hot or cold packs are complimentary parts of the session.

Cupping for Muscle Pain  (30 min/$50; 60 min/$85)

Cupping is a technique that uses small glass or plastic cups suctioned to the skin in place, or moved along the skin with oil in order to loosen tight muscles. It is commonly used for acute neck, shoulder, and back pain resulting from tight muscles. Cupping may, or may not, be appropriate for conditions of chronic pain. A treatment consists of some needling followed by cupping on the affected area. If the practitioner determines that cupping is not an appropriate treatment for a patient’s pain, a regular acupuncture treatment will be performed instead. Disclaimer: Please be aware that cupping often leaves some reddish or purple marks on the skin; these usually disappear within a few days to a week.

(1st Session/$190; Susequent Sessions/$145)

These massages aid in issues of reproductive and digestive health, including fertility, PMS, frequent urination, and prostate health. During your session, you will be taught self-care massage. Contraindications for this massage are IUD, menses, pelvic infection, recent surgery.

Kinesio-Taping  (15 min/$25; Additional areas $10 each)

Kinesio-Taping helps to alleviate pain and facilitate lymphatic drainage by lifting and pulling the skin. The taped area forms convolutions in the skin thus increasing interstitial space. The result is that pressure and irritation are removed from the neural and sensory receptors, alleviating pain. Pressure is gradually taken off the lymphatic system, allowing it to drain more freely. Kinesio Tape can be applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, relax overused or tired muscles, and support muscles in movement on a 24-hour a day basis. The tape is not restrictive and allows for full range of motion. Kinesio Tape is used to treat anything from headaches to foot problems and everything in between. Some examples include carpel tunnel syndrome, low back pain, knee and shoulder conditions and rehabilitation from sports injuries.
Price is $25.00 to tape a body part. Additional areas would cost $10.00 an area. For example, taping both the shoulder and arm would be $25.00 + $10.00. Or, another example is hamstring, IT band, and knee, it would be $25.00 + $10.00 + $10.00. The tape will last 3-5 days on your body. This is very economical for pain relief.
Kinesio Tape is made of 100% high grade cotton, it is hypoallergenic, latex free, durable, and economical.

Cranio-Sacral Therapy  (60 min/$85)

Cranial-Sacral therapy (CST) is a gentle treatment approach that works with the natural, self-correcting mechanism of the body and the Cranio-Sacral System (the membranes and fluids that surround the brain and spinal cord) to detect and release restrictions in mobility and enhance function. The rhythmic movement of the Cranio-Sacral System can be palpated and used to determine the core issues so that treatment can focus on the cause rather than the symptoms. Clients often report a sense of deep relaxation during and after the treatment session. Wear comfortable clothing. Disrobing is not required for this therapy.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy  (60 min/$95; 90 min/$142)

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is an innovative hands-on method of lymphatic drainage. The lymph system is stimulated with extremely light, stretching, pumping movements. This gentle, rhythmic stimulation drains puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body's immune system, helps the body heal from surgery, and aids in the body's natural waste removal or detoxification. LDT was developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO. Our Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is based on Chikly's award-winning research on the lymphatic system and its benefits are consistent with recent scientific discoveries.
