Deep Tissue Massage

Neuromuscular Therapy begins with myofascial release to break up adhesions in the connective tissue on top of muscles, known as fascia, followed by intense trigger point work that addresses the deeper layers of muscle. It is based on neurological laws and pain patterns that explain how trigger points in one area can cause pain in another area. For instance, trigger points in the scalenes (muscles in the front of your neck) can cause pain to run down your arms and/or pecs. It is appropriate for those who have acute or chronic pain, injuries or postural imbalances. Choose Neuromuscular Therapy if your main goal is pain relief in one specific area of your body.

Cupping is an ancient Chinese technique in which a vacuum is created with cups that are placed on the skin. This suction causes the skin, fascia, and superficial muscle to be drawn into the cups. Cupping loosens the muscle tissue and fascia and can help increase range of motion in stiff areas. You may notice circular bruising following a cupping session, but this is normal. Choose Cupping if you have stubborn trigger points and/or would like to increase range of motion in troublesome areas.
We offer this service as a Massage/Cupping Combo or as a stand-alone 30-minute treatment.
