Deep Tissue Massage
A technique that provides relief for chronic aches and muscle tension that may include the neck and shoulders, upper and lower back and leg muscles. Deep tissue massage releases chronic muscle tension using deep pressure and slow strokes that go into the fascial layers of muscle tissue at the source of an injury.

Commonly applied to the face, neck and joint areas, this treatment improves circulation and enhances the body’s immune system.
The practitioner applies moderate pressure to release tension and improve mobility due to injury in the muscles and surrounding tissue. Kneading style strokes stretch and loosen the fibrous bands within the nerves and joints that extends to provide relief to muscles and connective tissues.

Hot Stone Massage
Heat is an excellent resource when attempting to heal sore and fatigued muscle tissue. That is one of the reasons why saunas and hot tubs are popular ways to relax.
With this relaxing technique heat is transferred to the body using specialized polished stones which are placed at key points on the body. Heat makes the muscles expand and become more pliable, allowing a professional therapist to get deep into the tissue to remove knots and eliminate tension.
