While we offer pre-natal massage, we recommend checking with your doctor before getting one. If you do get a pre-natal massage, we have an automatic, fully adjustable massage table and offer additional pillows to enhance comfort. If you have any signs of edema, we do not recommend a prenatal massage.

Wear loose-fitting clothes that you feel comfortable in. Your therapist will ask you to undress to a point where you feel comfortable before your massage. If you plan to wear these clothes home, select clothing that massage oils will not damage or stain. Your therapist (depending on certifications) may also include corrective exercise or stretching in your session so wear modest, loose fitting clothing.

Before your massage begins, a massage therapist will meet with you to discuss your symptoms, medical history and the healing benefits you seek. Your therapist will leave the room so you can undress to a point where you feel comfortable. You will then lie on the massage table and cover yourself with the sheets and blanket provided. Sheets and a blanket will fully drape you during your entire session. We train our therapists to professionally drape clients, so you feel safe and comfortable during your treatment. Before starting, your therapist may evaluate you through palpation and movement assessments to observe imbalances, locate painful or tense areas and to determine how much pressure to apply. If your therapist pushes too hard, always feel comfortable to ask for lighter pressure. Communication is always encouraged so that your therapist can deliver the most beneficial massage. Your massage therapist will also review this information with you before your session begins. After your session, your therapist will recommend the frequency of treatments needed to reach your wellness goals and discuss a plan to help achieve these goals.

Massage therapists may apply hot towels, hot stones, cupping techniques, and essential oils during your massage. Far infrared heat therapy is also complimentary. Let your massage therapist know if you are allergic to any ingredients or plants. We use nut-free organic oils and lotions to help avoid common allergic reactions.

If you are experiencing any points of pain or inflammation, we encourage you to add CBD salve to your massage. The anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving agents of CBD will help reduce inflammation within your muscles and joints. We use CBD salve that is organically grown and infused with DoTerra lavender oil to amplify the anti-inflammatory properties of the CBD. Our CBD salve encourages your pores to open from the natural warmth that lavender brings, allowing the CBD to penetrate even deeper. People seek CBD salve with a massage to help enhance relaxation and encourage physical pain relief. For athletes, research shows CBD accelerates the recovery and healing process of injured connective tissue. Experience all the amazing benefits by adding CBD to your massage.

Therapeutic massage draws from advanced modalities to enhance the body’s restorative functioning. Licensed Massage Therapists use the correct and desired pressure to help release tension, relax muscles, increase blood and lymph circulation, and produce a sense of calm and well-being. Therapeutic massage supports conventional medical treatment of illness and injury, eases pain and stress, aids in soft tissue healing and revitalizes the body.

Medical massage is used as an umbrella term. Your therapist uses multiple modalities rather than just one specific modality during your session to address a specific problem or goal. Each part of the body may need a distinct type of massage to achieve the overall desired outcome. Your therapist will design a specific treatment plan targeted to a specific problem(s) the patient presents after doing a thorough intake and assessment prior to your session. Medical massage usually entails a recommended treatment plan following your initial visit that may include information for self-care at home.
