Drawing from techniques of Eastern and Western modalities, we can address a variety of musculoskeletal disorders.

Basic Massage generally uses a light to medium pressure, some stretching techniques and is geared to people just "wanting to relax."

Clinical Massage allows the practitioner to address recovering injuries or muscle pain from a health improvement aspect and might include some or all of the following modalities:

*Tui Na means "pushing grasping," and is a powerful form of Chinese medical bodywork that seeks to improve the flow of qi through the meridian channels. Tui na is particularly effective for conditions involving muscles, tendons and joints, such as structural misalignment, orthopedic problems and sports injuries. It is often referred to in the USA as acupressure and, as such, is also used to stimulate acupuncture points in the treatment of internal diseases. 

*Trigger Point Therapy addresses areas of muscle "knots" which can be relieved through the technique of systematic pressure and release. 

*Deep Tissue Massage uses a much firmer pressure than a "basic" relaxation massage to reach the muscles located deeper inside the body and often incorporates different positions (such as side-lying) and stretching movements. 

*Sports Massage typically addresses muscles affected by over-use during a specific physical activity.

Hot Stone Massage is what the name implies and incorporates the use of warmed stones during the massage process to soothe tight muscles, and can also increase the amount of pressure in the techniques.

Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a very light pressure technique that is geared to moving the skin to encourage excess lymph fluid to return to its natural flow. Generally used following surgery, injury or illnesses that cause edema (swelling).

Reflexology, a modality which works on the principle that massaging the related areas of the feet, hands and ears will therapeutically treat disorders of the associated organs and zones of the body.
