TREATMENTS

An accurate health history is essential to ensure that it is safe for you to receive a massage therapy treatment. If your health status changes, let your massage therapist know as soon as possible, and your health form will be updated.

ASSESSMENT

No injury is the same. Soft tissues heal differently and respond to treatment differently. To tailor your treatment plan to your condition, the therapist must first assess to find out the way the injury occurred, and the type of tissue involved.

Therapeutic massage involves much more than just rubbing and kneading. A good massage can relax tense muscles, break scar tissues, and increase range of motion. 

 

Our massage therapy services provide relief, decrease pain and inflammation, reduce stress, improve blood circulation, develop coordination, and prevent physical dysfunction. Massage can help for soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, tendons) injuries related to overuse and trauma.

 

Regular massages can improve health especially after sports injuries, motor vehicle accidents, and stress. Those who undertake the proper training are able to work miracles with the human body.

CUPPING (VANTOUSE)

Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that originated in China. It involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. 

 

Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed and can help relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair.

Late Policy:

Clients are responsible for the time they reserve for their appointment. If you are late for your appointment the treatment will still end at the designated time with no change in fee. If it is your first time, make sure to arrive 10 minutes early to complete your health history form so you will receive your full length of treatment. 


Cancellation Policy: 

  • To accommodate all of our clients, we require a 24 hours notice for cancellation or rescheduling. Less than that is not adequate time for us to offer your appointment time to others.

  • If you do not contact us to cancel or reschedule before the 24 hours and do not show up for your scheduled appointment, you will be required to pay the full cost of the treatment as booked. Please understand that therapists receive payment only if they deliver treatment. We recognize that no one is perfect and some circumstances are out of your control (sudden illness, family emergencies, etc.) and so your therapist may make an exception to the above policies on those rare occasions.
