Helping you feel your very best.
Often when people hear the words massage therapy, they think of hot stones, Spa, or aromatherapy treatments. All of those are wonderful at reducing stress and relaxing us, but when you have an injury , dysfunction or need rehabilitation, you need bodywork that is far more specific. Muscles help control movement. When they are stressed, overworked or injured, you feel pain, discomfort and limited mobility. Clinical Massage differs from relaxation massage in that it focuses on specific muscles and soft tissue that are often the root cause of our pain and disfunction.

By effectively softening, lengthening or addressing adhesions ("knots), and restrictions in tissues, this work helps muscles and soft tissue work more effectively and pain free. A combination of modalities ranging from deep tissue, Swedish, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy are combined to customize a treatment specific to each individual client's needs. After all, we all have different lifestyles, different health levels and concerns, so one "cookbook" treatment could not possible work for each person, even if they have the same diagnosis!

Call today to learn more about Clinical Massage and how it can help you feel your best.
