Deep Tissue Massage
The use of slow, deep, and intense massage strokes across the grain of the muscle to heal physical injuries, chronic tension, and emotional stresses within the body. Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. It helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the superficial tissues.
This style of massage is designed to improve athletic performance, prevent injuries, or assist with rehabilitation. Treatments incorporate a wide variety of massage modalities and may include various forms of stretching, including active isolated stretching, muscle energy techniques, pin and stretch, etc. This type of massage is particularly beneficial for those with active lifestyles.
Pregnancy (Pre-Natal) Massage
Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of expecting patient’s. Research shows prenatal massage therapy can help reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Specially designed pillows, cushions, and side-lying postures are used to make the expecting patient as comfortable as possible.
Medical massage incorporates many techniques to address muscle and skeletal issues diagnosed by a doctor. Medical massage therapy is a highly effective treatment for many orthopedic problems such as sciatica, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, etc. Massage manipulates blood and lymph flow, muscle tissues, and chemical release of hormones/endorphins to treat pain of all types, especially for injuries and musculoskeletal/neuroskeletal issues. May require a physician’s authorization.
Hot Stone Massage
A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy. Based on ancient healing traditions, smooth heated stones are used to massage away muscle tension allowing for a deeper massage and more profound relaxation. It is particularly beneficial in relieving tight muscles, pain and soreness.
A couple’s massage is a shared experience – a massage for two people, at the same time, in the same private room, but on two separate massage tables and performed by two massage therapists. The massage therapists will start at the same time and coordinate the treatment for the couple. It’s a massage experience for two that has real benefits, for physical, mental, and relationship health.
Reflexology is a technique that focuses on specific pressure points to help correct energy flows throughout your body. This technique uses finger pressure applied to reflexes of feet and hands with the goal of restoring the body to balance and treating specific conditions including, neck/shoulder/low back pain, digestion problems, sciatica, thyroid & adrenal issues, etc.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (North Syracuse Only)
Manual Lymph Drainage is a light manual body treatment that helps direct lymph fluid towards the lymph nodes. The lymphatic system is a key part of our immune system that helps clear metabolic waste from our body. MLD treatment encourages our lymphatic system to work more optimally. It is a deeply relaxing and soothing treatment with benefits like reducing pain and swelling, better sleep, and improved digestive functions. MLD is beneficial to most people, especially those who live with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, migraines, edema (including from pregnancy) and Lyme disease.
Lymphatic Cupping for the Head, Neck and Shoulders
This 30 minute manual lymphatic drainage session focuses on gently clearing the sinuses and upper respiratory system. Manual strokes and facial cups are used to move stagnant lymph for better breathing, decreased sinus pressure and swelling, and boosting the immune system. This session is ideal for those dealing with long-haul Covid symptoms, sinus congestion, headaches, and swelling around the face and/or neck.
A chair massage focuses on the areas of your back, shoulders, neck, arms, and hands with the most tension. You are massaged over your clothes without any use of massage oil. When getting a chair massage, you sit in a special chair that has a downward angled cradle for your face to rest on and supports for resting your arms.
