Make an Appointment

Personalization is an important part of treatment. You can be sure that when you come for treatment, it will be specifically tailored to your personal situation and needs.

Active Release Techniques (ART)
ART is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow are just a few of the many conditions that can be resolved quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles.
Sports Massage
This type of massage is designed for those people who fall into one of the following categories: Professional Athlete, Amateur Athlete and those who work out and/or play sports on a recreational basis but wish to improve their performance and quality of life. A number of different strokes and techniques will be applied in conjunction. Technique, pace and pressure will vary dependent upon a variety of circumstances. Some amount of manual stretching may also involved.
Deep Tissue
This massage is designed to go beyond the superficial layer of muscle to release any spasm, tension, adhesions, scar tissue or contracture within the muscle belly. There is some amount of discomfort involved in the treatment protocol. The odds are that whatever issue is going on in a particular muscle, has been there for a while if you have not been receiving massage on a regular basis.
This is exactly what is sounds like. A nice, easy relaxing massage. This will combine a number of different gliding stroke techniques to create a sense of reduced stress and well being. You just lay back and relax.
