A Natural Approach to Healing
ONCOLOGY MASSAGE is a specialist massage therapy for those who have been diagnosed with or are recovering from cancer. It uses expert techniques and works therapeutically to give a renewed sense of deep relaxation.
CUPPING THERAPY is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
KINESIOLOGY TAPING is a rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting. Tape alleviates pain and facilitates lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin, reducing inflammation and bruising.
MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE (MLD) is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back to the cardiovascular system. Used for Post Operative Care to reduce swelling, inflammation, bruising. Also used to control/prevent Lymphedema Symptoms after Lymph Node Removal or a compromised Lymphatic System.
REFLEXOLOGY is an alternative medicine involving application of pressure to the feet and hands with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion.

SWEDISH MASSAGE is the most commonly used form of classical Western massage, generally performed in the direction of the heart, sometimes with active or passive movement of the joints. It is used especially for relaxation, relief of muscular tension, and improvement of circulation and range of motion.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE is a manipulative treatment that attempts to release tension in the fascia due to trauma, posture, or inflammation. Connective tissues called fascia surround the muscles, bones, nerves, and organs of the body.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles. It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
