An intake will be needed to find the best way to shorten then length of the migraine attack. Once we have your specific requirements recorded a session can include:

• Cold Stone Therapy

• Aroma Therapy

• Gentle Zen Shiatsu

• Gentle Swedish Massage

• Lymphatic Drainage

• Polarity Massage

Each session will focus on reducing pain, releasing tension, controlling the vascular dilation to the brain, and calming the anxiety that accompanies migraines.


These techniques work well with other forms of headaches, like: Tension Headaches, Vascular Headaches, Cluster Headaches, Sinus Headaches, and Chemical Imbalance Headaches.

What are the lasting benefits of massage?


• Massage increases circulation

• Relaxes muscle spasms and relieves tension

• Helps to prevent or delay muscle atrophy resulting from forced inactivity

Can massage improve the immune system?


Yes, massage is capable of supporting our immune system, both directly and indirectly. Directly through lymphatic massage and indirectly through joint mobilization and stress reduction. It takes the lymphatic system, on average two weeks to fully circulate around the body. This cycle is affected by how active we are and how much stress we are under. The less our bodies move and the more stressed we are the slower the lymphatic system cleanse our body. Lymphatic drainage can help move the lymphatic fluid through our bodies and into the lymph nodes for cleansing. Therefore facilitation our overall physical health and wellbeing.


What are muscle adhesions (Knots)?


Simply put, adhesions are two or more layers of fascia (connective tissue surrounding our muscles) that join and unit. This limits joint movement and increases the risk of injury. Repetitive stress, trauma, holding patterns, dehydration or poor body mechanics are the main causes to the creation of adhesions within our muscles. To help release these conditions, structural massage like deep tissue and myofacial therapy is needed. If left untreated muscle ossification (the calcification of muscle into bone) may occur.


Can massage help me with my Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ-S)?


Yes, though gentle manipulation of the muscle that surround the joint. Massage is capable of relaxing your muscles and brining about proper joint function. In addition, the relaxation characteristics of massage can help to alleviate the underlying stress issues that may have caused the TMJ-S.


Can massage therapists diagnose?


No, diagnoses is outside the scope of a licensed/certified massage therapist. If you are experiencing an undiagnosed health condition, please consult your doctor.


What are the characteristics of massage modalities?


Swedish Massage

Long strokes, kneading and friction techniques are applied to superficial muscles and tendons in combination with passive and active movements of joints. Generally, this type of massage is gentle and relaxing, and lays the foundation for most other techniques.


Myofacial Release

This technique seeks to rebalance the body by releasing tension in the fascia (tissue that encapsulates the muscle). Long stretching strokes are used to release muscular and facial tension.


Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are hypersensitive, or irritated tender areas in muscle that are often related to referred pain. This technique involves the movement of myofacial tissue through soft, deep contact with pressure points on the body. The therapist applies steady, moderate pressure for several seconds to "erase" a trigger point and break cycles of pain. Knowledge of common trigger point locations and referral patterns help the therapist determine if trigger point work is called for.


Deep Tissue

The focus of this treatment is on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is primarily used to release chronic patterns of tension in the body through a series of slow, deep strokes and strong, deep pressure on contracted areas either with or across the grain of muscle, tendons and fascia.


Sport Specific Massage

Each sport tends to strain the muscles at certain predictable points. Sports massage can help heal strained muscles and allow healthy ones to reach their peak. Massage will also help to maintain musculature with less risk of injury. Multiple techniques are used based on the individual's needs.
