Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Myofascial massage is a technique used to treat injuries and discomfort, reducing pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial massage differs from other types of massage in that it targets the fascia - the membrane surrounding muscles - rather than the muscle itself.

While other forms of massage can overlook the fascia, myofascial massage focuses specifically on releasing tension in this important membrane.
Himalayan Sound Bowl (Vibrational) Massage-This unique treatment provides conventional massage (pressure of client preference), aromatherapy, and incorporates vibrational sound bowls. A profound experience, giving a massage both from the outside the body, and by vibrating the liquids in the body , a massage from inside the body out. The human body is made up of approximately 60% water, and much like when a pebble is thrown into a lake, the ripple effects of the sounds flow outward effecting brain wave patterns and allowing for the client to often fall into a REM sleep, half aware of surrounding, but also in that semi conscious relaxed state.
This internal massage is achieved as the bowls are gently played and placed in various tension points around the body, creating internal vibration. Music lovers in particular find this treatment deeply relaxing.
