Massage therapy is not just about pampering and luxury, human touch is an essential component to life, the therapeutic touch of massage can help to facilitate changes where stress and pain are manageable or non-existent.
Massage therapists vary in their style, technique and specialty. Whether you prefer a gentle massage that makes you drift off to sleep, a medium pressure to relax you and work out the kinks, or a more clinical approach using techniques that drop deeply into muscle and connective tissues from your neck to your toes, there’s a therapist for you at The Body Suite.
Trained in the major modalities of massage, therapists may be drawn to a style or technique in which they excel. Your therapist may combine a variety of techniques to achieve results that last beyond your time on the massage table. Whether you have back, neck, shoulder or hip pain; stress, tension or anxiety; numbness, limited motion, stiffness or all of the above – each massage is tailored to meeting your individual needs.
Essential Oils can greatly amplify the healthy benefits of bodywork and skin care. Your therapist blends a custom potion to use in each session to enhance the benefits of your treatment.
The Stress Melter: (gentle) A gentle and flowing touch helps you to de-stress and relax while your body regulates circulation, nerves, lymphatic and digestive systems.
Therapeutic: (medium-firm) Focus on trouble spots and works out stress, knots, aches and pains combining a variety of techniques using a medium to firmer touch.
Sporty/Athletic: (medium-firm) Vigorous pre-event massage helps reduce sports-related injuries by warming, stimulating and preparing muscles and joints for increased activity, while more restful post-event techniques relieve sore, overworked or injured bodies.
Pre- or Post-Natal: (gentle to medium) Relieves strain and stress caused by a changing body, hormonal fluctuations and an unfamiliar center of gravity for moms-to-be. Helps new moms rebalance physically and emotionally after their life and body changing event.
Deep Tissue: (firm-extreme) Using advanced techniques, many layers of tissue are worked out to affect deep body composition for relief of chronic or structural problems. Not recommended for the first time massage recipient.
Reflexology: Massage and acupressure on reflex points on the feet, hands and ears that link to organs and systems in the body stimulate the body’s healing forces and sends your extremities on a vacation.
The Top & Toe: Above the shoulders and below the knees (favorite body parts, according to our clients). Fully clothed or not, with or without oils, it’s a perfect introduction to massage for those who are hesitant to have a full body session.
Heads Up: Warm moist essential-oil-infused towels, massage, lymphatic drainage, Reiki, Polarity and Shiatsu acupressure points around jaw, brow, cheeks and scalp, neck and shoulders coax tense muscles to relax; scalp massage, hair pulling and stroking help worries and anxiety to evaporate.
Hot Stone Therapy: (when available) Using a combination of heated and cold marble, semi-precious crystal and lava stones, tired muscles, stressed minds and disorganized spirits are lulled into harmony and balance, and the circuitry of the body’s meridians and chakras are reconnected as you succumb to skillfully-applied pressure and thermal benefits of the stone massage.
