Hot Stone Massage

A Hot Stone Massage Therapy Treatment consists of a combination of heated stones and a full body general swedish (relaxation) massage. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that has the ability to retain heat, although we generally use jade stone.  HEALING POWER OF JADE! Jade brings new meaning to Hot Stone Therapy. Revered for its ability to bring harmony and balance, jade has been used to attract love and bring money. When used for massage, Jade is a protective stone used to heal stressed organs and discharge toxins. It slows the aging process and strengthens the body’s natural defenses. A Hot Stone Massage Therapy Treatment provides a very soothing and effective experience, the stones are known to expand blood vessels, which in turn encourages blood flow throughout the body. The stones also have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation. During a Hot Stone Massage some of the smooth, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of the body while others are held in the hands of the Massage Therapist as they provide a relaxing, hands on treatment. 

The heat relaxes the muscle tissue, increasing blood flow to the area being treated. This accelerates the healing process, and is also deeply relaxing. In addition to its therapeutic uses, this massage therapy technique is ideal for neck and shoulder tension and dealing with stress.

There is an additional $10 charge on the treatment price. 

The stones may be placed and can treat the following areas::

  • Along the spine
  • Low back
  • Neck
  • Anterior chest wall (with your specified consent)
  • Glutes (with your specified consent)
  • Stomach
  • Face
  • Arms and palms
  • Legs and feet

Orthopaedic Massage Therapy

Massage therapy, in the most general sense, is the therapeutic manipulation of soft tissue in the body with intent to promote a healing environment. An Orthopaedic Massage Therapist is specially trained and certified in the treatment of orthopedic conditions.

 Therefore, Orthopaedic Massage is the manipulation of the soft tissue in the body as they pertain to orthopaedic conditions with the disciplined intent to promote a healing environment. It is target specific, purposeful bodywork that aims to eliminate the symptoms of pain and dysfunction by focusing on the source of it all. A typical session of orthopaedic massage involves an initial intake of your medical background, daily activities and areas of concern. Gait and postural analysis may be used, along with some muscle testing and movement screening. 

We offer effective, medically supported manual therapy together with laser therapy where required for hurting bodies. Undivided attention is given to the chief areas of complaint for the maximum benefit of the client. 

With the right approach, touch and sound reason for treatment, a client once hindered and disabled by sciatic pain (for example) can walk out pain-free and unrestricted. If you suffer from a longstanding pain with little to no improvement over time and under treatment, you may benefit greatly from the knowledgeable and skilled hands of a manual therapist with the help of laser therapy.
