Massage Therapy
What is Massage Therapy?
 
Massage therapy is one of the oldest forms of health care. Our therapists are highly trained in the anatomy of the body and have a unique understanding of the musculoskeletal system. Therefore, they work with hands-on therapeutic and rehabilitatve techniques to address conditions that are soft tissue in nature (muscle, tendon/ligament, fascia, etc.). This promotes rapid functional improvement and optimal healing and recovery for patients.
What Massage Techniques are available?
 
Our practitioners are educated in the following techniques:
  • Neuromuscular Therapy
  • Rehabilitation
  • Swedish
  • Myofascial Release
  • Trigger Point Therapy
What is the cost of a massage?
 
30 minutes - $50
45 minutes - $75
60 minutes - $100
90 minutes - $145
*Note that your massage time is the entire time your therapist will be performing massage therapy on you.
