Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques including trigger point therapy, fascial release, active release, passive stretching and joint movement. The pressure is firm throughout Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis, or recovery from injury. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back and hip tightness, and sore shoulders and arms. This treatment is truly deep tissue and may leave your muscles feeling sore the next day as the body reabsorbs and flushes out related toxins.
Hot Stone Massage
Melt into a blanket of warmth as you experience the soothing meditative state of hot stone massage. This luxurious treatment will encourage deep relaxation and calm your soul, with the use of heated basalt stones placed on the body with the combination of massage. A cold weather favorite.
