Massage therapy is the manual manipulation of soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia) to promote health and well-being. Benefits of massages include improving blood and lymph circulation, reducing stress, loosening tight muscles, and alleviating spasms. There are many different types of massage techniques. Some techniques focus on relaxation, such as swedish massage, while others focus on a therapeutic effect, such as acupressure, deep tissue or sports massage. It’s important to let your massage therapist know the type of massage that you prefer.

Our specialized acupressure treatment is a potent form of energy healing work, using the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. These healing pressure points are the gateways to the body's life energy force, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and the body's life force energy to aid healing.
