Massage Treatments for Advanced Relief

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release targets the fascia, a connective tissue network supporting muscles, organs, and skeletal structures. Fascia's interconnection can lead to pain and posture problems. The technique involves manipulating fascia to enhance flexibility, alleviate chronic pain, and improve overall function by addressing restrictions and realigning connective tissue fibers. The aim is to optimize fascial network alignment and mobility for enhanced well-being.

Myofascial Release (MFR) therapy offers relief for various conditions, including:

MFR is often used to stretch muscles before competition and during rehabilitation.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is gentle, pressure is the weight of a nickel. It is meant to mimic the lymphatic system's movement patterns. Unlike traditional massage, MLD focuses on stimulating lymph and interstitial fluid flow through rhythmic pumping, guiding the fluid in the correct direction.

Conditions that can benefit from MLD include fluid retention (swelling), edema from injuries, arthritis, myalgic encephalomyelitis, multiple sclerosis, sinusitis, fatigue, cellulite, aches, pains, headaches, tension, stress, digestive problems, and post-surgery recovery.

Therapeutic Massage

Our Expertise! Discover the Ultimate Blend: A full body treatment massage that skillfully combines tension-relieving techniques with the soothing techniques of a Swedish massage. This specialized massage is meticulously crafted to alleviate stress and muscle soreness, while simultaneously enhancing circulation and fostering profound relaxation.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage targets deep soft tissue and fascial layers to address issues like scarring, adhesions, and muscular spasms. The goal is to restore normal function and motion. It's about concentrated, specific work in deeper layers, not necessarily intense pressure, allowing for lasting changes. Clients might experience temporary discomfort, and adequate hydration post-session is advised to eliminate metabolic wastes and enhance recovery.

Sports Massage

Sports massage aims to enhance circulation, flexibility, and range of motion, reduce recovery time, prevent injuries, and boost muscular efficiency for improved performance. It's commonly applied during training, pre and post-events, utilizing compression, light and fast strokes, and limb stretching.

Neuromuscular Therapy

 Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) restores nervous and musculoskeletal system balance by addressing trigger points, which can cause significant pain and discomfort. Precise pressure on these points helps restore normal nerve and muscle function, offering relief, especially for chronic pain.

Cupping Session

Myofascial decompression, a fusion of cupping and tissue mobilization principles, involves applying cups similar to traditional cupping. Cups can be moved on the skin or left in place while the client undergoes motion. This method allows functional treatment with freedom of movement. Cupping serves as a screening tool to examine fascial glide and restrictions, aiding in pinpointing and treating adhesions, trigger points, and fascial restrictions that impact movement in joints and soft tissues. Practical applications include releasing trigger points, controlling muscle contractions, correcting posture and gait, targeting muscles for improved exercise positioning and form, and mobilizing soft tissue.


Instrument-Aided Soft Tissue Manipulation (IASTM), also known as Gua Sha or the Graston technique, employs stone or stainless steel instruments with beveled edges and contours to penetrate and manipulate soft tissues effectively. It aids in detecting and treating various soft tissue disorders by breaking down myofascial and scar tissues, promoting normal soft tissue regeneration. IASTM is beneficial for treating a range of disorders, including sprains, tears, strains, and overuse injuries affecting any soft tissue in the body.

Tissue Flossing

Fascial tissue flossing, a growing treatment approach, utilizes external pressure using an elastic band above or below the problematic muscle or joint. The pressure helps maintain arterial blood flow while decreasing venous outflow. Benefits of tissue flossing include:

1. Pain reduction

2. Enhanced range of motion

3. Improved athletic performance

4. Injury prevention

5. Reduced post-training/competition muscle soreness

6. Enhanced muscle recovery

TMJ Massage

A TMJ massage eases tension and pain around the temporomandibular joint. It may involve both extra-oral and intra-oral techniques. The session begins with the release of upper back, shoulder, neck, chest, and collarbone muscles. Intraorally, we use gloves to massage the inside of your mouth. Afterward, we address the surrounding muscles to alleviate any residual tension. Please inform us of any discomfort, as the treatment can be intense due to tightness. Immediate relief is often reported after just one session.
