LIGHTER TOUCH MASSAGE

Regardless of the type of massage you want, we believe your massage needs to be as unique as you are.  One type of massage does not fit all. Therefore, our therapists offer sessions using techniques from various massage modalities.

 

Drawing on extensive training, your therapist will incorporate elements from numerous techniques to ensure that you receive the type of massage that is best suited and most effective to your needs on any particular day. We partner with you to create a customized session. Our client’s modesty is always respected; we take great care when draping.

 

Confused? If you are confused by the various offerings described here, do not worry. Your therapist will work with you on the day of your massage to create a wonderful relaxing and therapeutic experience based on your unique needs. While we have therapists who specialize in many forms of body work all of our therapists can provide excellent Swedish and deep tissue work. We are also happy to answer any of your questions if you call for further information.

Orthobionomy

Orthobionomy is a positional release modality developed by a Doctor of Osteopathy. It may be performed completely dressed. It is super gentle and allows people who have conditions that do not allow for deeper touch to find relief from their pain and discomfort. Do not under estimate this light work’s healing capacity. Many people who do not find relief from deeper touch modalities acheive healing from this little known but powerful modality.

The therapist will address the client’s unique geriatric needs and issues.
