Head to Toe Signature Massage:
A combination of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Therapeutic Stretching,
Acupressure, and Reflexology techniques are used at the
therapists discretion in accordance with the needs of your body.
By combining all of these techniques the therapist is able to
"reeducate" muscles. This allows the massage to last for a longer
period of time as well as eliminate chronic or acute pain. Most
people experience an increased range of motion and decrease in
pain after this massage. The true benefits of a Head to Toe
Signature Massage are realized anywhere from 24 to 48 hours
after the massage.

Deep Tissue Massage: Reaches the deeper tissues of the body
and the structural imbalances that contribute to pain and
dysfunction. A Deep Tissue massage does not have to be painful
in order to be effective, and a skilled therapist will work within your
comfort level. The therapist will use slow deep strokes to release
chronic muscle tension, fatigue, reduce spasms, and increase
flexibility. Some people feel sore the next day after a deep tissue
massage, like they just worked out, which is normal and should

Hot Stone Massage: The heat from the stones relaxes muscles,
increase the blood flow to the area being worked on which further
accelerates the healing process. This increase in circulation and
the relaxation of the muscles also aids in mental relaxation.
Mental relaxation is key when a Therapist is attempting to work
into deeper muscles of the body.
Trigger point and Myokinesthetics: Trigger points are
commonly known as "knots" in the soft tissues of the body such
as muscles, tendons, fascia and ligaments. These trigger points
cause muscle fibers to contract, decreasing blood flow and as a
result there is an accumulation of local toxins. The contracted
muscle fibers innervate local nerve fiber endings causing pain.
When the brain interprets pain, it assumes the muscle is in
danger and causes the muscle to contract to protect itself against
further damage. Since the muscle is already in a contracted
state, it causes further pain and a vicious cycle called the pain,
spasm, pain cycle begins. Trigger point and Myotherapy focuses
on your specific areas of pain. Repetitive overuse of muscles,
poor body mechanics, prolonged immobilization of a muscle,
chilling and trauma are just some of the causes of trigger points.
Techniques are used to alleviate muscle spasms and cramping to
locate and deactivate `trigger points' (tender areas where muscles
have been damaged). The therapist will work to reduce spasm
and pain by inducing new blood flow into the affected area.
Primal Reflex Release Technique (PRRT): A new physical
therapy treatment for treating pain conditions. Reflexes are
hardwired into the nervous system initially for the purpose of
survival and/or the preservation of life. Therefore, when someone
is in pain or is encountering a painful or startling experience,
these reflexes are called upon to protect the body, stimulating a
“fight or flight” response. PRRT works with your nervous system
to help release its "tied up" state.
