Neuromuscular/Trigger Point Therapy
A form of soft tissue massage that aims to alleviate chronic muscle and nervous system disorders and problems. It is mainly used to fix trigger points, circulation, nerve compression, postural problems and repetitive movement imbalances and injuries.
An ancient healing therapy form of traditional Chinese and Middle Eastern medicine. People have practiced cupping therapy for thousands of years. Some people use cupping to ease pain and improve circulation, and also increase range of motion. A therapist places cups on your back, stomach, arms, legs or other parts of your body. Inside the cup, a vacuum force pulls skin upward. Suction from cupping increases blood flow and lymphatic fluid to the treatment area to stimulate the natural healing process. Some people theorize that cupping clears the pores and releases toxins.
Deep Tissue Massage
Gets into your muscles, helps to release tight muscles and tightness in your tendons. It is good for people with injuries, general muscle tightness and chronic muscle pain. Your muscles can get tight from stress or repeated use – even from something less active like sitting, driving or hunching over a laptop.
Hot Stone Massage
The heat from the stones penetrates into the muscles and helps loosen them up so the therapist can provide a deeper and more relaxing massage quicker. In addition to loosening muscles, the heat from the massage stones opens up blood vessels and improves circulation. Improved circulation allows more oxygen to be delivered to the muscles, which helps alleviate aches and pains.
