Massage therapy has been practiced in most cultures throughout human history and was one of the earliest tools that people used to try to relieve pain. To reflect the growing diversity of techniques and modalities used to manipulate soft tissue and enhance the body’s energy flow, the term bodywork is now more commonly used.
While bodywork does help relieve everyday aches and pains, much more is taking place within the body during and after a session. Some of these benefits include:
- Serotonin, dopamine, and natural endorphin release
- Cellular regeneration
- Improved quality of sleep
- Stress reduction
- Enhanced overall energy levels
- Lower blood pressure
- Increased blood circulation
- Decreased anxiety and depression symptoms
- Body detoxification
- Skin and muscle toning
- Emotional balancing
- And so much more!
Bodywork is much more than a luxury…it is healthcare.
Therapeutic Integrative Massage
Therapeutic integrative massage uses combinations of light to firm pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and promote other health benefits. Various techniques will be applied that will ease your stress and allow you to slip into a calm state of relaxation. (Massage cupping may be incorporated as a deep tissue enhancement).
Therapeutic Integrative Massage & Essential Oil Technique
A combination of therapeutic integrative massage and your choice of Symphony of the Cells™ or AromaTouch Technique®. Note: the essential oil technique accounts for 30 minutes of your session. Please refer to our Aromatherapy page for more information on our essential oil services.
Massage Cupping is a modern adaptation of the ancient art of cupping therapy and a form of myofascial release therapy. While massage is performed by applying pressure, cupping instead uses negative pressure to pull, lift, open and expand the body’s soft tissues. This technique helps release fascial adhesions, improve circulation, and detoxify the body’s tissues.
*All bodywork services include complimentary essential oils, hot towels, and/or hot stones to enhance your experience (all optional).
