The history of Massage Therapy dates back to 3000BCE (or earlier) in India, where it was considered a sacred system of natural healing. Over time, different types of massage have emerged.
Though there is a variety of massage techniques, therapies, pressures and bodywork options, the goal remains the same as it was all those years ago : To restore your body’s natural, physical balance so it can heal itself.

A deeply relaxing modality that focuses on complete relaxation with mild pressure and long, flowing massage strokes. A session usually includes work on the full body (i.e neck, shoulders, arms, hands, legs, feet, gluteus, and back) but can be modified based on what is necessary for the client. There is no trigger point work or deep pressure that causes pain or discomfort.
Deep Tissue Massage
A massage with deeper pressure. Focus is mostly on getting muscles to relax but also working the knots out. Targets chronic hypertonic muscles. Some pain or discomfort is present but not to the point of being intolerable. It is important to keep a good line of communication so that we can “work the body” and at the same time comfort it.
A massage that is outcome based. We are able to target specific diagnoses with this type of massage. It helps with sports injuries, post operative recovery, neurological problems, multiple sclerosis (MS), and other injuries.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. If you’ve had surgery this type of massage is something you may want to consider because it helps with post surgical swelling.
Raindrop Therapy is based on the idea that many types of scoliosis and spinal misalignments are caused by viruses or bacteria that lie dormant along the spine. These pathogens create inflammation, which, in turn, contorts and disfigures the spinal column. Single oils used are oregano, thyme, basil, cypress, wintergreen, marjoram, peppermint. The oils get applied to the spinal Vital Flex area on the soles of the feet. Then they get applied along the spine with light feather strokes followed with a warm compress to increase the absorption of oils. The session ends with a light massage of the back.
