Deep tissue massage is a corrective bodywork modality focusing on the deeper layers of muscles within your body. In a deep tissue massage, our therapist will warm up the superficial layers of muscle and then apply a strong pressure combined with a variety of techniques to the targeted underlying (deep) muscles. It is an intense technique designed to relieve tension and restore the muscles to optimal functioning. This technique is very effective in releasing chronic patterns of tension in the body, breaking up adhesions (knots), breaking muscle spasms, elongating shortened muscle fibers, addressing and eliminating scar tissue, increasing range of motion, correcting postural issues and imbalances. Both active and passive movements and stretches may be included as necessary means to enhance your treatment.

medi - massage cupping
.Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Cupping therapy might be trendy now, but it’s not new. It dates back to ancient Egyptian, Chinese, and Middle Eastern cultures. One of the oldest medical textbooks in the world, the Ebers Papyrus, describes how the ancient Egyptians used cupping therapy in 1,550 B.C.

Essential oils, when applied to the body, can penetrate deep into the muscles to assist in pain relief, improve mood and well-being, and boost your immune system. Aromatherapy is the use of oils extracted from aromatic plants for healing and is a branch of herbalism. These oils are natural aromatic compounds found in seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Organic therapeutic grade oils, combined with my additional training in clinical aromatherapy, will take your massage session to the next level and leave you feeling sensational. We love to mix up special blends to fit our clients needs.
