Restorative Massage

Integrative custom massage therapy designed to relax and remove severe tension, restorative massage is a gentle and soothing process to relieve both muscles and connective tissue. Improving range of motion and allowing injuries below the surface to heal, this service allows you to get back to your daily life with less pain and more functionality.  

Specialties include plantar fasciitis, shoulder pain, neck pain, tennis/golfer's elbow, knee/hip replacements and much more.

Manual Lymph Drainage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a light, skin-stretching technique that helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid out of a swollen area or limb.  The general effects of MLD are an increase in lymph production, an increase in lymphangiomotoricity, an increase in venous return, and providing an overall soothing and analgesic effect.  

MLD is indicated for many conditions, including:

  • general edema or lymphedema 

  • post-surgical and post-traumatic swelling

    • recovery after plastic surgery​

  • chronic fatigue syndrome

  • fibromyalgia

  • migraine headaches

  • general detoxification

  • cancer

Oncology Massage

Oncology massage is the modification of existing massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatment. Most commonly, this techique takes into account the side effects (both short- and long-term) of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.  Anyone who has ever received cancer treatment, from those in active treatment to those in recovery or survivorship, as well as those at the end of life, are best served by a massage therapist who has received specialized training in oncology massage.

Pre/Post Surgical Massage

After surgery of any kind, there is always a recovery period, and often additional therapy is needed to regain strength and range of motion.  Post-surgical massage therapy is extremely helpful in reducing pain and swelling, restoring range of motion, and accelerating healing time.  Having a procedure like a knee or hip replaced is an undertaking.  Getting massage on a weekly-basis after surgery is a great way to help your body truly heal and recover, getting you back to what you love!

Scar tissue massage reduces pain and restriction, restores nerve function (including resolving numbness and sensitivity) and helps to prevent additional adhesions from forming after injury or surgery.
