Massage Therapy

Deep Tissue - a strong massage that focuses on reaching deep muscles and fascia. It can be somewhat intense in pressure, but is a great compliment to Trigger Point Therapy.

Sports Massage -
Used to treat sore muscles or to work on sports injuries. Using a cross-fiber technique, sports massage helps to break up scar tissue and can accelerate the healing of injured muscles.

Trigger Point Therapy -
trigger points are hot spots in the muscle where pain may originate or where pain has been referred. Trigger points can be activated by an injury, by overworking a muscle, from trauma or from stress. Trigger Point/Myotherapy is done by applying pressure directly on the 'hot spot' of the muscle. Trigger Point Therapy has a 95% success rate in healing acute and chronic pain.
