Massage

Massage is a wonderful complement to Acupuncture and yoga. Our therapists specialize in Therapeutic Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Post-Injury Massage, and Chinese Massage (Tui-Na), Thai Massage and Ayurvedic Ahbyanga Warm Oil Massage. These massage therapies work well in treating athletes for injuries, performance, and injury prevention.

Types of Massages

Therapeutic and Deep Tissue Massage

  • the preferred and most therapeutic massage depth is determined by the patient and practitioner together

  • aids in the recovery of chronic and acute pains by releasing chronic patterns of tension

  • facilitates the natural healing process by ensuring a free flow of nerve impulses and circulation of fluids.

  • helps increase range of motion, particularly in areas that were otherwise too painful to move.

  • essential oils are sometimes used to enhance relaxation and healing

 

Post Trauma/Injury Massage

  • helps strengthen, stretch, and retrain movement and coordination

  • aids in reducing inflammation, scar tissue, and increases blood flow to the injured areas

  • can help prevent a prolonged recovery or even help to speed recovery if treatment is done often enough

  • decreases the effects of inflammation, which can become a chronic condition resulting in partial loss of mobility

  • Essential oils are sometimes used to enhance relaxation and healing

 

Tui-Na Massage Therapy

Tui- Na (twee-nah) is a Chinese massage therapy. It makes use of many different strokes that are applied to acupoints, channels (or meridians – the “energetic highways” of the body according to Traditional Chinese Medicine), and muscle groups. Tui-Na massage can:

  • increase the flow of blood and lymph circulation

  • reduce stress and muscular tension

  • bring about relaxation

  • help improve over-all organ health and well-being of your body

Thai Massage

Done on the floor or a firm mat, a practitioner uses their entire body, including hands, elbows, feet, and knees to stand, kneel, or walk on the recipient and create deep pressure.

  • aids in increasing your flexibility and range of motion by improving your muscle's blood flow and oxygen supply increasing the range of motion.

  • It uses the gentle pressure on energy lines and stretching to relax the whole body on a deeper level.

Ahbyanga Warm Oil Massage

Abhyanga is a full-body ayurvedic massage that uses warm oil to promote overall health and well-being.

  • It involves massaging oils onto the body from the head to the toes with an herb-infused oil specifically chosen to help balance the doshas, or energies, in your body.

  • The oil works down into the cellular level and pulls the toxins out of the system to purify and refresh the body.

  • Add on an additional treatment such as marma point therapy, udvartana herbal body scrub or shirodhara. 

Benefits of ALL types of Massage:

  • General and muscle relaxation

  • Improved circulation

  • Alleviation of specific types of muscle pain

  • Improvement in cellular nutrition

  • Reduction and relief from stress and anxiety

  • An overall sense of deep relaxation and well being.
