Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
The LIFT Method
The LIFT Method Ligament Stimulation Technique is an evolutionary approach to treating the body via the ligament, fascial and muscular systems.
Ligaments are a significant source of acute, sub-acute, and chronic muscle pain and dysfunction. LIFT uses the sensory qualities of ligaments to relieve tight muscles and rebalance joint space, while other therapies normally just address the muscles and tendons. LIFT is able to resolve both simple and difficult injuries and pathologies quickly, and with little or no discomfort to the recipient.

Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
