All types of bodywork approach the body in a different way with the aim of creating a positive outcome in the client.  These can be described as either mechanical or reflexive outcomes.  Our therapist draw from several modalities to assist our clients with recovery and optimization of their dysfunctions. 

Swedish Massage

  • Swedish Massage is robust and powerful and can be utilized to deconstruct complex injuries and stagnant tissue. It is also helpful with cleansing and optimizing tissue quality as a client pursues their personal fitness goals. 
  • Swedish Massage also boosts immune responses and cleans lymph through increased circulation and lymphatic drainage.
  • Stretching and disruption of stagnant postures to create a shift in the body that allows the clients frame to adopt new positions that will eliminate dysfunctions and propensities for re-injury.
  • Optimizes well being and helps to reset the proprioceptive relationship between the body and mind.


  • Cranio-Sacral work is much lighter than Swedish Massage and is a wonderful compliment to the power inherent to Swedish work.
  • Cranio-Sacral works utilizes structures and forces within the Cranium and Spine to optimize the movement and relationships between the sutures in the skull and the fluid that courses through those regions.
  • By working with the hydraulic forces of the Cerebral Spinal Fluid as it moves through the deepest spaces in the skull and spine, the client and therapist can detect, reduce or optimize the movements of this sacral fluid to assist in resolution of a myriad of disorders.
  • This modality is based in Osteopathic medicine and is extremely useful for clients who are searching for a gentle way to gain knowledge of an elusive issue in the body.
  • When applicable, we utilize Intra-oral techniques to engage the muscles in jaw and mouth as well as tongue and throat to create change.
