Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session. This is a 90 minute massage.

Infant Massage Classes
Infant Massage promotes the healthy development of your infant. Caring human touch is crucial for a healthy thriving baby, and the benefits of massaging your infant are potent and numerous. For example, many infants show improved growth and development of the brain and nervous system. Infant massage has also been shown to improve the quality of a baby's sleep, as well as strengthening their immune system. Infants benefit from touch. Physically, massage stimulates the nerves and strengthens the immune system. Massage can help with colic, constipation, and ease digestion. During this hands-on class, parents/caregivers will be shown how to effectively massage their infant (ages newborn - 12 months). Classes can be held in private or in small groups. Several handouts and massage oil will be included with this class. Classes are 1.5 to 2 hours in length. Please bring your infant and a baby doll to the class (in case your child falls asleep or does not want to be massaged), diaper bag/feeding supplies, notepad & pen, small blankets and a pillow or "Boppy" for baby. This class is conducted on the floor and some prefer to bring a pillow/cushion to sit on. A $10 deposit is due upon registration. Please call (717) 659-0736 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to register. Classes are open to parents, caregivers, grandparents, Expectant Moms, daycare workers, Massage Therapists, and anyone else interested in learning Infant Massage.

Aromatherapy Massage is performed by using essential oils during a massage. Oils are chosen to therapeutically treat the client using the olfactory glands (through smell). Aromatherapy massage works when essential oils are inhaled by the client. When the fragrant oils are inhaled, a chemical message is sent to the brain which triggers a certain emotional response. These can be smells that remind the client of a time when they felt happy, safe, relaxed, peaceful or energized. The combination of the senses - the emotion elicited by the scent of the essential oil and the sensation of touch - is how aromatherapy massage makes a client feel relaxed, stimulated, peaceful or euphoric, depending on their desired emotional response. This combination can also provide stress relief and pain relief, help aid a sleeping disorder or physical condition, or energize the mind and body. Many oils are available. This is a 75 minute massage.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation. Prenatal massages are performed in a side-lying position. Extra pillows will be used to ensure your comfort. During the massage, a drainage technique is used on the legs to aid with swelling and light leg massage can be performed. There are several acupressure points on a woman's body that need to be avoided while she is pregnant. It is important to always receive Prenatal massage from a trained Prenatal Therapist. This is a 60 minute massage.

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle yet powerful technique that is effective in releasing neck pain, back pain, and mental stress (among other things). It is a systematic or integrative hands-on method that activates the healing potential of the body; releasing pain, stress, restrictions and fosters a remarkable feeling of relaxation and well-being. The therapist places his or her hands on a (clothed) individual to tune into their cranial sacral rhythm; assessing the body for restrictions, then helping the client's body to heal itself. Using hand holds and placements, the practitioner gently works with the spine, sacrum, the skull, its cranial sutures, and the body's fascia. In this way, restrictions are eased or removed, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid is optimized, and misaligned bones can be restored to their proper position. Please wear loose comfortable clothes. Please do not wear jeans, skirts, or dresses. Pease wear socks.
