Most massages can be mixed and matched! For example, when you come in for a deep tissue massage with Susan, let her know you would be interested in adding hot stones or the warm bamboo. Or maybe you'd like a hot stone massage with some cupping. If you have a question about what can be mixed and matched, just give our office a call!
Susan & Megan
Deep tissue massage is a technique that's mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue.
Pregnancy massage is a type of massage therapy specifically designed to be used during pregnancy. It is also called prenatal massage. Pregnancy massage may help relieve some of the aches and pains of pregnancy. You must be in your second trimester to receive a prenatal massage.
Hot stone massage therapy helps melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness, and increase circulation and metabolism. Hot stones, when coupled with massage, also help to expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body.
Warm Bamboo (add on)
Prepares the Body for Deep Tissue Massage. Bamboo tools are heated in a heating pad until the appropriate temperature. The warmth alone relaxes cold muscles.
Induces The Profound State Of Relaxation. Aside from its comforting, therapeutic warmth, this massage instantly relaxes the muscles.
Increases Circulation In The Body. The warmth of the tools causes the blood vessels to dilate, which in turn increases blood flow.
Reduces Muscle Tension and Soreness. With the combination of the three above mentioned points, the result is that muscle tension and soreness vanish.
Provides a Unique Experience. In essence, Bamboo Massage feels a lot like a session performed entirely with the therapist’s forearms.
Swedish massage is a manual therapy that emphasizes long strokes, kneading and friction motions to encourage proper circulation. The technique involves rubbing muscles together in the same direction as the flow of blood to the heart.
Cupping (add on)
1. Encourages proper blood flow and lymphatic drainage.
2. Relieves pain, removes stagnation and pulls out toxins from your soft tissue, promoting decreased blood pressure.
3. Reduced muscle tension, breaks up adhesions.
4. Healthier skin and improved muscle recovery.
Cupping therapy sets can even be used as a cellulite massager.
Sports massage is geared specifically toward helping people who have physically demanding lifestyles and/or hobbies. It considers the impact of certain activities on specific joints, muscle groups, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups. It maximizes the benefit of certain massage techniques and supports further physical exertion and activity.
What is animal chiropractic?
My goal is to help your pets be as healthy and mobile as they can be. I use gentle techniques to re-align the spine restoring their body’s natural healing powers. My main objective is to help your pets to reach optimal spinal and physical health through chiropractic care.
How do I know if my animal needs Chiropractic?
Your animal can give you many signs that he/she needs Chiropractic. The biggest is mobility. They start to slow down on walks, not want to go as far, they don’t jump like they use to, they don’t wag their tail anymore, dragging of the feet, weak hind end, has a hard time getting up/down, moans a lot more to move, arched up in the mid back or a sway in the middle back, hip dysplasia, twitching of the skin when you touch a certain area, they don’t like you to brush or touch an area, you feel heat coming off the back, plus all of the other symptoms listed above!
How do you adjust a dog?
You'll be surprised by how much your dog will enjoy and hold still for their adjustments. An animal adjustment is very similar to how you would be adjusted, in the sense that every vertebrae is felt by hand for joint motion. The vertebrae that are not moving properly, will receive a small but quick movement by hand into the joint to restore motion. The adjustment is gentle but effective. Chiropractic adjustments also address problems in the limbs such as shoulder, elbow, wrist, hips, knees and ankles.
For more information about the footbath, call our office. Or you can ask us at your next adjustment!
What is it?
It soaks your feet with water charged with positive & negative ions called electrolytes. The electrolytes help to draw toxins from the body by pulling them through your feet & out into the water. This exchange between positive & negative ions in your body and their opposite in the water works much like a magnet.
Why do it?
Your body can be full of toxins and this process pulls those toxins out. Heavy metals are just one type of toxin. This can help treat your symptoms of headaches, depression, insomnia, and much more!
Most patients would benefit from twice a week for a month, but the frequency is up to you. We offer a package of 4 visits for a discounted price.
If you're coming in for a massage, ask us about scheduling a footbath after to flush out all the toxins that the massage pulled loose!
