Swedish Style Massage

Uses light to medium pressure to ensure relaxation and to de-stress the body and mind. Involves effleurage and petrissage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep pressure is utilized to work out muscle knots and adhesions.  Forearm and elbow techniques are used by the therapist to penetrate deep into the muscle allowing tension release.  May also include: Trigger Point Therapy- Similar to deep tissue, this technique is done to release tension in specific areas.  Deep pressure using stabilized thumb and elbow work in a repetitive manner.

    Health Tips

    The desire to change one's body is fairly equal between men and women.  Whether the desire is to lose weight, gain muscle, increase strength or just make it up the flight of stairs without huffing and puffing- people wish for change.

    It is good to know that change IS possible for anyone, but it does require the right foods and frequent exercise.  Exercise and nutrition always go hand-in-hand and research continues to show that neither does well alone.  Make some simple changes in your life to get started today!

    5 Nutritional Changes:  

    • Eat at least 1 cup of steamed veggies every day
    • Eat at least 12-15 grams of protein with breakfast (hint: eggs, chicken sausage, protein smoothies...)
    • Drink more water
    • Have green tea instead of that third cup of coffee
    • Omit ALL artificial sweeteners, colorings, preservatives and flavorings. (hint: choose stevia, honey or agave syrup to sweeten)

    5 Fitness Changes:

    • Plan and schedule your workouts at the start of each week.
    • Get good gear!  The right shoes, comfy but supportive workout clothes mean a lot and don't have to be expensive.
    • Find exercise you enjoy.  Many gyms and classes offer a trial for you before you invest.
    • Go for a walk after dinner.  
    • Remember that the body is built for motion and not the couch!
