Swedish massage is characterized by long, flowing strokes. Swedish massage is shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage focuses on realigning deep layers of muscles and connective tissue by applying slow, concentrated pressure on areas of tension and pain. It is especially helpful for chronically contracted areas such as stiff necks, tight backs, and sore shoulders. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down muscle tension to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
Since we have a lot of questions about Shiatsu, and our therapist Jen Bednarski – here’s a little extra info for you:
We have an influx of questions in regards to Shiatsu massages. Jennifer, our Shiatsu massage therapist, has put together a few words to help detail what Shiatsu massage is and how it works. She has also compiled a few tips and tricks to keep your body at homeostasis as we transition into winter!
“In addition to these great ways to support our bodies, one of the most effective methods of keeping this delicate homeostasis is by getting a Shiatsu massage. Shiatsu massage therapists determine the body’s current state through pulse assessment and intake questions. From the information collected, they determine the best combination of pressure techniques, stretches, and exercises to help return every system to a more relaxed and healthful balance.”
the season of the water element. Energy moves inward during this time. The trees shed their leaves so their resources can be focused on keeping the trunk alive. Similarly, our body will give priority to our trunks (the torso). We start to notice that our hands and feet get colder quicker. The chill about our necks becomes uncomfortable enough to grab a scarf.”
Pregnancy massage has been found to reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains in muscles and joints. It’s a popular complementary therapy for back pain during pregnancy when pain relief medication options are limited. Massage therapy has also been found to reduce anxiety and depression. Post-natal massage can be comforting and relaxing and offer a much-needed break for new moms.
Most office-related physical symptoms can be attributed to the loss of circulation. Tight muscles caused by stress and inactivity can impede blood flow. The result is mental fogginess, decreased energy, and susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries, like carpal tunnel syndrome. Chair massage counters the circulatory problems inherent with office work and provides an appreciated break for employees. Sitting in a massage chair opens up the back muscles, relieves strain on the neck, and provides a gentle respite for eyes usually glued to a computer monitor.
Sports massage is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery. There are three contexts in which sports massage can be useful to an athlete: pre-event, post-event, and injury treatment. The massage techniques employed may include elements from several different styles and are customized to each athlete for his or her particular concern.

Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I receive a massage?
For preventative care or stress management massages, one massage per month is common. For injury relief or to relieve debilitating chronic tension, weekly sessions may be necessary. If you have a question about the frequency of your messages, please bring it up with your therapist.
What should I wear for my massage?
This is a common worry for first-time massage clients. Our therapists will work with you, without judgment, in whatever level of dress you feel most comfortable with. You should undress to your personal level of comfort. Most clients prefer to be completely undressed, while some prefer to keep undergarments on. Clients will always be draped in a sheet/blanket to keep you warm and maintain modesty. In some situations you may only need to remove clothing on just the upper or lower half of the body should you be receiving a focused massage. Whatever the circumstance simply discuss any concerns you may have with your therapist and after you have agreed to the plan for your massage session, your therapist will excuse themselves and you will be able to undress and prepare privately before your session starts.
How long will the session last?
We offer a variety of massage options, including 30, 60, and 90-minute massages. If you are a new patient, these times may include some paperwork and a conversation with your therapist about your massage preferences and healthcare needs.
How much should I tip?
Gratuity is at your own discretion. Should you feel your therapist offered you an exceptional service please feel free to show them your appreciation in the form of a tip. We have done our best to make it easy and comfortable for you to show your gratitude. You can use the envelope in the massage room privately or add a tip to your receipt when checking out with a credit card. Members of our Monthly Massage Club who have credit cards stored on file can mark the tip amount on the card in the massage room and place it in the envelope in the room or simply set up a recurring amount when signing up for the club.
What should I do during my massage?
Make yourself comfortable. The practitioner will either gently move you or tell you how to move throughout the session. Many people close their eyes and completely relax. Feel free to let your therapist know if you would like deeper or lighter pressure. Some clients enjoy conversation with their therapist; others wish to rest and remain quiet. The choice is yours.
Do you provide massage therapy to minors?
People of all ages can benefit from therapeutic massage. Minors (children under 18) must be accompanied by or have the consent of a parent or guardian via a written minor consent form.
Does my insurance company cover my massage?
Each case is different, but if therapeutic massage is a medical necessity for you, we will work to help you gain the maximum benefit from your insurance company. Typically those involved in an auto accident can receive prescribed massage sessions while recovering from your injuries. Your massage therapy could also be applied to a health savings account or flexible spending account with a recommendation written by one of our doctors. Please feel free to contact us with your specific questions about insurance coverage.
