Massage therapy has been used for centuries, dating back thousands of years to ancient writings from Egypt, India, Japan, China, Greece, and Rome. Even Hippocrates defined medicine as “the art of rubbing”.  Massage has a long history in many cultures around the world, with many people using different massage therapy types to treat various health-related conditions.  Massage therapy was one of the very first tools that people around the globe used to treat pain and other symptoms.

Massage therapy has been found to be helpful for many conditions in addition to providing relaxation and comfort.  Massage can be helpful for:

The Swedish Massage

The classic Swedish massage is a stress-relieving, gentle form of massage that uses circular movements and long, flowing strokes to induce relaxation and circulation.  A Swedish massage is a great way to introduce yourself or loved ones to a popular massage for unwinding and energizing. 

 

Deep Tissue Massage

The Deep Tissue massage technique uses slower, stronger strategic strokes to target deeper layers of connective tissue and muscle.  This type of massage therapy is often used with trigger point therapy, sports massage and stretching to relieve stress, strain, inflammation, and muscle damage from injuries. 

 

Therapeutic Stone Massage

A Therapeutic Stone massage is a time honored practice of using the direct heat from smooth stones heated by water to relax muscles with light to moderate pressure on key body trigger points.  The warmth from the stones allows our massage therapists to access deeper layers of muscle, soothing your muscles and your mind while increasing circulation and serenity.
