What is "deep tissue?" It simply means massaging the muscles that are not near the skin. The body is made with layers of muscles, and this massage will get to the deeper ones. Generally the session will start with some warm up techniques that will get the muscles closer to the skin, and then move to the muscles that cause issues in the body. The session doesn't have to hurt in order to be effective. In fact, if it hurts too much, it isn't effective at all. The muscles would contract and work against the therapist. We work effectively, not hurtfully. Please book "Deeper than Deep" for this session.

There are many stresses that mother and child have throughout pregnancy and after birth.
Getting a prenatal massage during pregnancy can help the mother's body with the changes that are taking place to make room for the baby. Pains can go away, swelling can be minimized, stress can be alleviated. When "it's time" and your doctor says it's OK, you may want to take advantage of a labor inducing massage. This is a safe alternative to the medications that are commonly used. We are also trained to help those who are high risk pregnancy.
With the body going back to the way it was before pregnancy, caring for your new bundle, and fatigue, there are many extras that are put on your plate. Well, your a new mom! :-) It comes with the package. Neck and shoulder pain are common from holding, looking down, and feeding. These put more stress on the muscles of the neck and shoulders. When your baby turns into a "hip- hugger" you put more stress on your low back and hips. Massage will help with all of these.
Your baby has just had the ride of a lifetime. There is no turning back now. There's no better start than with massage. It stimulates the nervous system promoting healthy development. Good chemical changes happen in the body. Circulation is improved and the immune system is enhanced. Massage is good for your baby! The neat thing is that when we do an infant massage and it is a teaching lesson for parents. You will learn how to continue massage at home! What better way to bond with your baby?
We can help! This area has everyone baffled. Doctors are treating fibromyalgia with drugs that change chemicals in the body in a way that controls pain . This seems to really work. Thing is, if you can take care of yourself in a natural way, you don't have the side effects of the medications (which are sometimes long term or permanent). Weekly sessions will dramatically effect you in a positive way. In fact, studies show a major decrease in symptoms with massages for Fibromyalgia sufferers. Sometimes metabolic waste (a byproduct of metabolism) can be an irritant to nerve endings because of bad circulation. Massage can act to calm pain receptors and aid in circulation and muscle balance. This can decrease or possibly eradicate your pain.
You're sitting at your desk, just like every other day, but today you notice pain radiating in your hand and wrist. You try to grab your bag, but the strength isn't there. You remember the night before waking up several times because your hand was tingly and asleep. Our therapists are very qualified to help. Massage to the muscles that make you able to type, bend your hand, and grip can alleviate the pain, increase circulation and aid in healing. Sometimes the real problem is coming from your neck, shoulder, chest, or arm. Massage to these areas cannot only alleviate the symptoms, but fix the problem. The pain, weakness, and numbness is there because nerves in the hand, wrist, arm, shoulder, or neck have been restricted possibly because of muscle tightness. This can be a serious issue and needs to be resolved as soon as possible before it worsens. Please book "Deeper than Deep" for this session.
