prenatal massage

 

Prenatal massage shares many of the goals of regular massage ­– to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and just make you feel good. But it's also tailored specifically to the needs of pregnant women and their changing bodies, and therapists who are trained in prenatal massage adjust their techniques accordingly.

hot stone massage

 

Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.

therapeutic massage

 

Your massage therapist will ask you to complete a questionnaire about your health needs and discuss your goals. He or she will perform treatment in a private room, and may provide exercises that you can continue at home. Your therapist will also set up a schedule for future appointments, depending on your needs. (You may need weekly or bi-weekly appointments in order to effectively treat the problem.)

orthotics

 

Foot orthoses comprise a custom made insert or footbed fitted into a shoe. Commonly referred to as "orthotics" these orthoses provide support for the foot by redistributing ground reaction forces as well as realigning foot joints while standing, walking or running. A great body of information exists within the orthotic literature describing the sciences that might be used to aid people with foot problems as well as the impact "orthotics" can have on foot, knee, hip, and spine deformities.
