Enjoy a relaxing massage focused to help wind down after your long day. Proven to encourage relaxation and deep recovery, Swedish massage uses a variety of effleurage and petrissage to encourage circulation in the body tissues. When the circulatory system is being flushed during this type of massage, muscle stiffness can subside and those “knots”, called adhesions, are gradually released.
First timers love Swedish massages, and they make great gifts as pampering sessions for the workaholic or the busy parent who needs a little bit of Zen time. This amazing introductory massage treatment will leave you feeling ready to enjoy a soak in a hot bath and relax for the rest of your day or evening.
This massage encompasses a little bit of everything. It’s a multipurpose massage, making it the best choice for visitors who just need a little pick me up, or some much overdue rest and relaxation. It’s one of the most popular massage offerings for people who don’t have a specific area of concern they’d like to focus on, although special attention can be paid to areas that need some extra care.
Visitors who require something a little more focused would most likely benefit from a deep tissue massage, although many people with arthritis or aching backs swear by the reparative power of a Swedish massage. If you’re unsure which one you’d benefit from the most, just ask us.
Deep Tissue Massage
Known for the deep techniques and use of trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques and muscle stripping, this massage is for those who have more chronic pain and tension. This treatment is suitable for releasing tight, strained muscles and helping with postural deviations, range of motion and whiplash syndrome as well as dealing with the everyday stresses of work and life.
A deep tissue massage is the more sophisticated and intensive parent of a Swedish massage. Deep tissue massages are often known for the pressure that they utilize, but it’s what that pressure does that makes these massages a standout for people who are looking to address special concerns. Since this massage is given with firmer pressure, it’s capable of affecting deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues. Adhesions and scar tissue from old injuries or overuse of a muscle are released, helping you improve your ability to live your life to the fullest without nagging dull aches or stiffness.
The immense relief provided by deep tissue massages is what makes them a top choice for people living with chronic muscular pain or conditions like fibromyalgia. Because deep tissue massages are easily able to be targeted to problem areas, you’re able to experience the relief exactly where you need it.
Hot Stone Massage (Greentoes North Location Only)
Our Hot Stone Massage is a form of massage therapy that peruses the similar principles of our Swedish Massage with the addition of calming heated stones, which helps lead to deeper relaxation by reducing tension. Adding heated stones to specific areas of the body enhance the feelings of relief and peace. Heated stones are perfect for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia, arthritis or other chronic pain. The penetrating effects of the heated stones allows the massage to be delivered without excessive pressure.
Cold causes things to contract, which is why many people put ice packs on injuries that swell. Heat causes things to expand, making it the perfect solution for muscle tension. A massage with hot stones causes a pleasant warmth to penetrate through the skin to the affected muscles. The motions of the massage help to reduce tension felt deep within the tissue.
The warmth and stimulation will improve the circulation within the area, encouraging oxygen rich blood to flush the tissues. This blood carries the nutrients your muscles need to heal and function properly. The gentle massaging motion helps to pull away any lymphatic byproducts and lactic acid that may be contributing to muscular discomfort, essentially cleaning out the muscle.
The gentle nature of hot stone massage makes it an excellent option for patients who have sensitive nerves or lower pain thresholds, as hand massages typically apply more pressure. The heat overcompensates for that pressure, allowing for a gentle experience that won’t sacrifice the quality of benefits of a traditional massage experience.
Hot stone massages can be performed on targeted areas where the patient feels the most pain, or be utilized as a full body massage to promote a general feeling of overall wellness and relaxation.

Mommy-to-be needs some care! This is a relaxing massage for mommy and baby. Energize and ease tension for mom with a massage to help relax her back and changing body. Maybe baby can get a little massage, too! Becoming a mom is one of the most wonderful things in the world, but as your baby grows, your body changes.

When you’re feeling your best, your baby is also feeling his or her best. A prenatal massage can help loosen up tensions, making things like pregnancy yoga or light exercise a lot easier. In the later stages of a pregnancy, it can sometimes even be a little difficult to get up off of the couch with grace and finesse. We can help relax you by minimizing or eliminating a lot of the tension that stems from your baby growing bigger, stronger, and healthier with each passing day.
A prenatal massage is a wonderful experience for both people – babies usually roll around and move more when the mommy’s tummy is massaged. Share the joy of life through massage by booking one for yourself or your special someone who is bringing a new life into the world (we’re looking at you, soon-to-be daddies)! Baby will be glad you did.

Much like deep muscle therapy, this treatment is geared towards increasing range of motion, circulation and stretching worked muscles. Through the variety of muscle energy technique, compressions and active and passive isolated stretching, this treatment is great when you want to feel energized, mentally aware and focused, yet relaxed and rejuvenated.
Athletic people often overuse specific muscle sets. If you do a lot of kicking, running, jumping, or skating, you’re putting a significant amount of stress on the muscles you depend on. It’s important to help those muscles repair and grow stronger, allowing you to achieve a higher level of athletic ability. Sometimes, some good old-fashioned rest and a sports massage can be exactly what you need to get back out there and do your best.
Even casual runners, joggers, and fitness enthusiasts can benefit from a sports massage – it’s not just for people who compete. Because sports massages center on specific areas, anyone who lives in active lifestyle can benefit from the occasional sports massage. You don’t even necessarily need to have a sports injury. Regular sports massages can help reduce the potential for sports injuries by tending to the affected muscles before they’ve been worked past their limits. You’ll experience better flexibility and greater endurance the next time you set yourself in motion.
Chronic Pain / Injury Management Massage
Many people are living with chronic pain somewhere in their body every day. Regular and continuous massage therapy can reduce and relieve pain from many or specific areas the body is ailing. Some doctors recommend these kinds of massages as a follow up to a medical treatment, or to be used in conjunction with a larger treatment plan to remedy an injury.
Since massages can help release the brain’s natural hormones that combat pain, serotonin in particular, people using massage therapy to treat their injuries or chronic condition are able to experience relief on multiple levels. The increased natural production of these hormones can linger for a while, creating a gentle wave of calm that will follow you even after the massage is over. That’s why these kinds of massages are great for people whose pain makes it difficult for them to get a decent night’s sleep, which is a crucial part of the body’s natural recovery process.
Massage therapy can also aid in reducing scar tissue, improve circulation and mobility to help the affected areas of pain. Best results for treating pain and injury management are sessions done in weekly or bi-weekly, increasing time in between appointments upon improvement. It’s part of a larger process to help people affected by pain regain their autonomy and live their lives to the fullest.
