Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular Therapy is the treatment of chronic and acute pain in the muscles and joints caused by trigger points, ischemic tissue and neurovascular entrapment. Specificity both in the techniques applied and in the attention paid to each muscle involved distinguish this effective therapy from other types of bodywork.
Neuromuscular Massage Using both massage and NMT, the therapist will combine deep tissue work with trigger point therapy in a variety of ways depending on the needs of the client. The time can be spent either focusing on a complaint or attending to the whole body, feeling for areas of dysfunction, tension and pain. The therapist will treat the body holistically, using the knowledge that NMT training and years of experience brings.
Massage Therapies

Our well-educated massage therapists are trained in a variety of techniques. All of the therapists can offer a focused treatment or a full-body massage and will adapt technique, pressure and area of treatment to your requirements. Each therapist has additional areas of interest and training. Ask about deep tissue, hot stone, detox, pregnancy and sports massage, active isolated stretching, aromatherapy and reflexology.

Hot Stone

More than just the hottest massage available, treatment with heated stones is truly therapeutic, deeply relaxing and profoundly healing. Come experience the magic of the stones...
Energy Healing All of our therapists believe in the importance of balanced and properly charged energy systems in the creation of healthy, pain-free bodies. Christina is a graduate of the 4-year program at the Brennan School of Healing. A healing consists of a chelation which balances and charges the chakras and energy field. It also includes specific work to repair damage from physical or emotional factors. The result is increased well-being and the ability to engage more fully in your life.

Imagine having the figure of a dancer and the strength of an athlete; a long and healthy body with beautiful posture and grace of movement … powerful, flexible and controlled. That's a Pilates body!

“In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 you'll see the difference, in 30 you'll have a new body.” Joseph Hubertus Pilates

Pilates sessions using spring-resisted equipment builds core strength while conditioning the entire body. It is especially helpful for posture and back problems. Therapeutic instruction is offered in private and semi-private sessions for those with special needs including limited flexibility, osteoporosis, stroke-related limitations, and disabilities.

Pilates is taught privately as Solos, Duets or Trios on our Reformers/Cadillacs and other pieces of equipment. Mat work is available in private classes, but comprises a portion of almost every lesson.

Active Islated Stretching Stretching

Need a good stretch? Active Isolated Stretching is the first step in the rehabilitation process and is the base for every good fitness regime. Pre-and postsurgical conditions are profoundly helped by working the deep connective tissue of the joints. Athletes improve performance dramatically and those with repetitive postures or movements find relief from the muscle strain.

Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is a time-tested and unique method of lengthening muscles developed by Kinesiotherapist and rehabilitator Aaron Mattes. Increase flexibility and muscle efficiency;, improve balance, strength and speed; expand lung capacity; intensify focus and concentration; reduce stress. AIS is the best! You'll be amazed at the results!
