Relaxing and therapeutic massage incorporating five different strokes and kneading techniques on the soft tissues of the body (muscles, tendons, ligaments). The strokes move blood and lymph fluid in the direction of the heart. Swedish massage increases local circulation, improves muscle and skin tone and decreases muscle tension.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.

Flowtrition Therapy

Flowtrition is a gentle touch that allows for the integration of life experiences stored in the body as tension. It is a means of finding the touch, nutrition, and thoughts that encourage growth and evolution of the individual. We see the perfection of the person and their body, without judgement.

The gentle light touches encourage the body to look in on itself and to make shifts.  Sometimes we are holding a pattern of tension due to an emotional or physical trauma from long ago.  Even though it is over and we have moved on, the body may be responding as if it is still occurring because the nervous system was affected deeply.  Everything that we experience is communicated to us through the nervous system. The healthier the nervous system, the healthier the communication. Giving the nervous system the opportunity to change is extremely beneficial on a physical and emotional level.
