Medical Massage

This is a special kind of soft tissue manipulation that relieves pain, muscle tightness, and increases range of joint movement. It is recommended post-injury or for certain medical conditions. Medical massages require your doctor\’s referral.We offer free consultation for evaluation, insurance coverage, and payment options. 

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage targets the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia to loosen bonds between the layers of connective tissues. 

Trigger Points Therapy

Trigger Points are contracted muscle bands which cause pain, tenderness, or loss of function. These tender points can cause referred pain to other muscles or organs. Releasing such points restores body function and relieves pain. 

Foot Reflexology

Foot Reflexology involves specific foot strokes that stimulate certain receptors, which in turn have a positive reflex effect on body organs and systems.
