A massage is the manipulation of tissues with the hand or an instrument for therapeutic purposes. Our provider Andrea, who has been a licensed Massage Therapist for over 8 years, specializes in deep tissue and Swedish massages, with add-ons such as cupping and hot stones. Therapeutic massages are medically proven to support your health and wellness by reducing stress, improving range of motion, and increasing circulation. Treat yourself to massage therapy!
Post Surgical Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialized massage technique that we recommend post surgery to help accelerate the patients recovery period. During a surgical procedure, lymphatic fluids can build up, which results in swelling. A lymphatic massage to areas of the body post-surgery, can stimulate the lymph nodes to drain any lymph fluid.
This service is exclusive to our surgical patients.
A Swedish massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. This technique aims to promote the most relaxation by releasing tension in the muscles. A Swedish massage is much more gentle than a deep tissue massage, and is better suited for our patients who are seeking relaxation and tension relief. This is a great treatment for a self care day!
Deep Tissue Massage
A Deep Tissue massage involves applying firm pressure to reach deeper layers of the muscle. This technique is more commonly used for chronic aches and pain.
Upgrade your massage with these add-ons:
Cupping is a safe, traditional treatment that helps to resolve chronic muscle tightness and pain faster than massage therapy alone.
A hot stone massage is a type of massage therapy that utilizes heated flat stones to help relax tense muscles and damaged soft tissues throughout the body.
