Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD):

The Lymphatic System's main purpose is to drain substances that cannot be drained or reabsorbed by the blood system. Manual Lymph Drainage is a gentle technique to help improve the activity, by focusing on the affected (swollen) areas such as the hands, arms, legs or whole body. It reduces the accumulation of fluid retained in the body (edema), increases venous return and it promotes pain control (analgesic).

Trigger Point Massage Therapy:

What is a trigger point?

It's a muscle knot or a very tender point in the body. Trigger points are the primary cause of pain in the body, about 75% of the time. It affects a muscle by keeping it both tight and weak. The pain they
cause can be local or can radiate to broader areas, distant from the trigger point itself. (ie. Headaches extending from back of the head to the eye and forehead are usually caused by trigger points on the suboccipital area, or base of head.)

Trigger points get treated by first locating the knot in the muscle and then using several thumb and finger techniques with various pressure on and around the trigger point until the buildup of the knot is broken.

Therapeutic Massage concentrates on the problem areas. Treating several conditions: Whiplash, frozen shoulder, stiff neck, back, hip, knee pain, migraine headaches, tennis/golfers elbow, plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.

Deep Tissue Massage is a full body massage that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle. It’s especially helpful for chronic aches and contracted muscles. It relaxes and softens tired and overworked muscles, increases circulation, reduces sport related soreness and relieves back pain.

Relaxation Massage is performed using long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing targeting the superficial muscles. It's focused on giving the client time to recover from the stress of daily life.

Sports Massage/Stretch is performed while wearing comfortable clothing on the table or on the floor. These stretches are great for all athletes. Some of the areas stretched are legs, calves, hips, arms, neck and lower back. Sports massage focuses on the muscles relevant to your athletic activity.

Performing the sports massage prior to a workout will warm the muscles, increases flexibility while preventing injury. After a workout, it will  slow the heart rate and relaxes the overworked muscle. It can also reduce recovery time, prevent muscle soreness and stiffness, and alleviate pain.

Chair massage is great for corporate events, such as employee/customer appreciation, or pre/post-athletic events. Emphasis is placed on the neck, shoulders, arms, and back. It boosts energy, alertness and productivity, while reducing muscle fatigue and tension.

Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy.” It’s a gentle method of hands on healing that taps into one’s energy or 'ki' in Japanese. It’s performed fully clothed and the practitioner can lay hands on the body or can keep them above the body.

Reiki can alleviate pain and stress, and promote restful sleep and relaxation.
