Massage

Massage therapy is available at all Healthworks locations and is ideal for those seeking to increase muscle flexibility, manage chronic painful muscle conditions as well as reduce stress. As the massage therapist works to stretch and loosen muscles and their connective tissue, muscle tension is relieved, fluids are moved and soft tissues are warmed to encourage deeper levels of relaxation and to promote overall health and wellbeing. Our licensed therapists will address any specific areas of concern over the course of your therapy and can work in tandem with any medical professionals to support the rehabilitation process.

Massage Therapy is an important element of any comprehensive approach to wellness – we hope you will allow our talented and experienced therapist to partner with you on your journey toward better health.

Specialized Massage Descriptions 

Craniosacral: Craniosacral therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touching to balance the craniosacral system in the body, which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area. (available in 25 and 50 minute sessions)

Hot Stone: A Hot Stone massage is a massage that uses smooth, flat, and heated rocks placed at key points on the body. Stones are placed in water and heated to within a certain temperature range before placement on the body. The stones are usually placed on specific points on the back, but can be placed other places such as between the toes, or in the palms of the hands. (available in 80 minute sessions only)

Lymph Detox: A lymph detox massage is a gentle technique scientifically designed to stimulate the circulation of lymph to speed up the removal of wastes from all over the body by increasing the flow and volume of lymph fluid. The Lymphatic System has no pump, its nourishing, water balancing eliminative functions are dependent upon muscle contractions, diaphramic breathing and body movements. It is common to develop a somewhat sluggish lymphatic flow from inactivity, consumption of inappropriate food and beverages and reduced water intake. In addition, our bodies become toxic from bi-products of stress, inflammation, environment, or a poor lifestyle.

Benefits of lymph detox include promoting general well being, better breathing, more energy, help with weight loss or maintenance, stress relief, boosting the immune system, improves mental well being, skin problems, allergies, abdominal bloating, headaches, and muscle and joint pain. Generally it assists and stimulates many systems in your body including the digestive system, immune system, lymph system and liver. (available in 25, 50 & 80 minute sessions)

Myofascial Release: Myofascial Release is a specialized massage technique employed to treat a variety of chronic disorders in which the muscle tissue is stretched and manipulated to relieve tension in the fascia, the thin tissue covering the muscle fibers. (available in 25, 50 & 80 minute sessions)

Reflexology: Reflexology is a therapeutic method of relieving pain by stimulating predefined pressure points on the feet and hands. This controlled pressure alleviates the source of the discomfort. In the absence of any particular malady or abnormality, reflexology may be as effective for promoting good health and for preventing illness as it may be for relieving symptoms of stress, injury, and illness. (available in 25 and 50 minute sessions)

Reiki: Reiki is a form of therapy that uses simple hands-on, no-touch, and visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki (pronounced ray-key) means “universal life energy” in Japanese, and Reiki practitioners are trained to detect and alleviate problems of energy flow on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki touch therapy is used in much the same way to achieve similar effects that traditional massage therapy is used—to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions. (available in 25, 50 & 80 minute sessions)

Shiatsu: Shiatsu is a manipulative therapy developed in Japan and incorporating techniques of anma (Japanese traditional massage), acupressure, stretching, and Western massage. Shiatsu involves applying pressure to special points or areas on the body in order to maintain physical and mental well being, treat disease, or alleviate discomfort. This therapy is considered holistic because it attempts to treat the whole person instead of a specific medical complaint. All types of acupressure generally focus on the same pressure points and so-called energy pathways, but may differ in terms of massage technique. Shiatsu, which can be translated as finger pressure, has been described as needle-free acupuncture. (available in 25, 50 & 80 minute sessions – please come to your session with loose, comfortable pants on)

Thai: The Thai massage is a form of bodywork that blends together passive stretching, deep kneading of the muscles and connective tissue, and acupressure to clear blockages in the energetic pathways. Treatments are performed on a thin futon with clients wearing loose comfortable clothing. All sessions are customized to the needs of each client.
