Acupressure

Acupressure Massage is a traditional Chinese healing technique, thousands of years old. This technique is derived from acupuncture, and uses pressure, with the hand, fingers, elbow, or other devices, on acupuncture points rather than using the traditional needles, to stimulate the body’s natural self-curative abilities. You can experience tremendous relief and relaxation with this method. When acupressure points are pressed, they release muscular tension and help blood circulation and the body’s energy life force to aid healing. When Acupressure Massage is combined with gentle energy massage, such as Esalen Massage, the results are enhanced.

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep Tissue Massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. Types of deep tissue work vary greatly.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release Massage Therapy is a manual massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia and muscles, with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and equalization of the bodily system. Myofascial release can involve applying compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling. Note: this type of therapy/massage can really help to “unstick” muscles, and increase the normal flow of energy, blood and oxygen in the body.

Neuromuscular

Neuromuscular therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle. These areas of strain are called tender or trigger points and are the cause of muscular pain symptoms.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat helps tight muscles release.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is a special form of massage and is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. The main purpose of sports massage therapy is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Where minor injuries and lesions occur

Swedish

This type of massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. Swedish Massage has consistently been shown to be helpful in: • Reducing pain; • Helping joint stiffness; • Increasing flexibility and joint function; • Improving circulation.

Pregnancy

Pregnancy massage, also known as pre-natal massage, promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mothers. Pregnancy massage is especially benefical in the second and third trimesters, when the extra weight in your belly puts a strain on your back.

Sherri is awesome. She uses various methods to remove knots, kinks and other tight muscles. Includes stretching in massage, and often relaxes me so much I fall asleep. Has enough strength to complete a 1.5 hour deep tissue massage.

The massage was amazing!. I NEVER relax enough to feel myself falling asleep....but I did this time. I was a bit frazzled when i walked in. (I had a lot to do that day - as most of us do)....Sherri used color light therapy - almost without my realizing it...and I was relaxed and in a clam state before she finished questions about my overall health! Once on the table, she really focused in on my unique issues, an was still able to give me a great all over massage. She has a very nurturing voice and I am already booked again next month. Well worth going!
