Massage Therapy

We have three registered massage therapists on staff to assist you in keeping your body in good form and condition.

 

Types of Massage Therapy

 

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.

Pregnancy Massage

Also called prenatal massage, pregnancy massage is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers. Massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage know the proper way to position and support the woman's body during the massage, and how to modify techniques. Pregnancy massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. The massage is customized to a woman's individual needs.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity. But you don't have to be a professional athlete to have one-it's also used by people who are active and work out often. The focus isn't on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance. A combination of techniques are used. The strokes are generally faster than Swedish massage. Facilitated stretching is a common technique. It helps to loosen muscles and increase flexibility.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Angela Ginther administers unique and customized acupuncture treatments to her patients based upon individual patient assessments. She is known to be gentle, dedicated and caring to her acupuncture patients. A variety of treatment techniques are implemented such as traditional acupuncture, both with and without electro-stimulation, moxibustion, cupping, deep tissue massage, heat therapy and various herbal remedies.
