All services are by appointment only. Services are 75, 90 or 120 minutes of hands-on time. Extended sessions of 150 and 180 minutes are available after your first session.
Hot Stone sessions are 120 minutes.
Prenatal massage is offered in 60, 75 or 90 minute sessions.
Each session is customized to deliver results based on the individual client needs. Pressure levels, focus areas and time spent on each area are dependent on the client's desires.
Swedish massage, one of the most common types of massage, is used to stimulate circulation, release tight muscles, flush the circulatory system and restore range of motion. Added benefits are lymphatic fluid movement, pain relief and relaxation. First time massage clients are recommended to have a Swedish massage with a pressure level set to their tolerance.
Deep tissue is another form of Swedish massage that targets the deeper layers of muscle and fascia (connective tissue) to provide more relief from chronic muscle pain and release deep adhesions (knots) in the tissue. Increased pressure is used to target inner layers of muscle and connective tissue, this can promote faster healing through increased blood flow and reduced inflammation.
Athletic performance (Sports) massage is geared towards clients who have physically demanding jobs, lifestyles or hobbies. Similar in technique to Deep Tissue, a session will also incorporate Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching to target specific muscle groups and joints. I typically also utilize Gua Sha or Percussion therapy during the session for increased blood flow and fascial release.
Gua Sha is an ancient Chinese form of IASTM which is used to relieve muscle and joint pain. It aids in improved flexibility and range of movement. This is a targeted therapy for specific areas of chronic pain or dysfunction, not a full body treatment.
Percussion therapy is used along with Swedish, Athletic Performance/Sports or Deep Tissue sessions. Through targeted rapid pulses provided by the percussion tool, muscles are stimulated at a much faster rate than massage alone to encourage better release of muscle adhesions, and increased circulation for a faster recovery. This service is ideal for clients with multiple, dense adhesions that want results faster.
Hot Stone sessions are only perfomed in 120 minute sessions for optimal relaxation and recovery Basalt (volcanic)stones are heated to 135 degrees and placed in strategic areas of the body. They are also used during the massage. Benefits of a hot stone session include relief from muscle pain and tension, stress reduction, and overall relaxation.
Performed in all 3 trimesters of pregnancy. Prenatal massage adapts throughout the duration of a pregnancy to relieve the stress and pain associated with the changes of the body as the baby grows. Massage helps the expecting mother cope with changes over the course of the pregnancy.
What clients say
I *had* hateful tension in my shoulders. They were bricks. Getting a good massage previously was always a hit or miss. That is not the case with Jeff! He is a miracle worker, and I literally felt like a new person from the first massage. I also liked the fact that instead of forcing the knots out (which can leave you feeling like you've been gut punched; or the kind of massage you get at a resort: that "treat yo self" massage that leaves you immobile, bruised, all while being burnt) he took his time! There was no pain, just pure release! There are also other techniques he uses - trust me, it's WORTH it - that helped tremendously with the tension in my shoulders & hands. If you want a quality "amazing" massage see Jeff!
