Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. This massage releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow movement and deep pressure. This massage can be used for specific work on concentrated areas of tension and pain or for full body. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders
Soft Tissue Release
Soft tissue release is a form of bodywork designed specifically around the area of neuromuscular therapy. This type of therapy focuses on increasing recovery rates of muscular injuries, fixing muscular imbalances, and relieving chronic pain. Soft tissue release is a popular form of therapy among athletes. It is a quick and effective way of achieving strength and flexibility after muscular injuries. Pressure is applied to the muscles while it is being stretched. The integrated movement technique helps to correct muscular imbalances, including areas that have been injured or have scar tissue. This therapy allows you to communicate with the nervous system; it is not just a manipulation of tissue. The application of rhythmic pressure during a stretching routine is communicating to the nervous system and reprogramming the muscles. This will eliminate the old muscle memory of how the nervous system thinks your muscle should normally be which is why pain persists. When trauma occurs to the muscle tissue, the affected area becomes inflamed. Once the muscle memory is evoked during Soft Tissue Release, the muscles are encouraged to return to their normal state and the inflammation decreases.
Anyone who is suffering from chronic pain or healing from an injury, this massage will help to eliminate negative muscle patterns held within the body.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT)
Neuromuscular Therapy is a thorough program of recovery from acute and chronic pain syndromes which utilizes specific massage therapy, flexibility stretching, and home care to eliminate the causes of most neuromuscular pain patterns. NMT enhances the function of joints, muscles, biomechanics (movement) and it releases endorphins, the body's own natural pain killers. This specific and scientific approach to muscular pain relief will help to bring about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. Six physiological factors that may create or intensify pain patterns are Ischemia, Trigger Points Nerve Entrapment/Compression, Postural Distortions, Nutrition, and Emotional Wellbeing
This can be part of all wellness programs complementing work with a physical therapist or with a personal trainer.
Sports Massage is a very deep penetrating massage. It is a specific form of massage that differs from other massages. Concentrating on all muscle groups, it has therapeutic benefits designed to address concerns typically used before, during, and after an athletic event. The purpose of this massage is to alleviate stress and tension which builds up in the body. Sports Massage therapy will prepare an athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, alleviate pain and/or relieve swelling, and to reduce muscle tension. It is a massage used to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries while reducing the possibility of cramps and muscle spasms. Whatever activity you may participate in, jogging, tennis, swimming, cycling, golf, riding, dancing, etc.; if you use your body demandingly this is the massage for you.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a massage that incorporates heated smooth, flat stones which can be placed in strategic points on the body, or held in the hands of the therapist and used in conjunction with certain massage strokes. The heat from the stones allows the muscles to relax, enabling the therapist to use increased pressure. For those that prefer a lighter touch, this is a relaxing way to get the deeper work they may require.
This is a great massage for anyone especially during the colder weather seasons. Hot stones will add an extra level of comfort and relaxation to any massage session.
Pregnancy Massage generally consists of Swedish Massage, where the main goals are to relax muscle tension and improve blood circulation and lymph flow through light to medium pressure applied throughout the body. During the session, the therapist may choose to use either a Prego Pillow, which allows the client to lie safely on her stomach and back into the later stages of pregnancy, or to have the client on her side in the side-lying position, supported by pillows.
Studies have indicated pregnancy massage can lower anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle and joint pains, and improve labor symptoms and the newborn's health. Other potential benefits of prenatal massage are:
— Reduce back and leg pain
— Reduce joint pain
— Improve circulation
— Reduce edema
— Reduce muscle tension and headaches
— Reduce stress and anxiety
— Improve oxygenation of soft tissues and muscles
— Better sleep
— Increase levels of the "feel-good" hormones serotonin and dopamine
— Decrease levels of cortisol, an indicator of stress
— An overall improvement in mood
Women with the following conditions should speak with a health care provider prior to receiving a massage:
— High risk pregnancy
— Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH)
— Previous pre-term labor
— Experiencing severe swelling, high blood pressure, or sudden, severe headaches
— Recently gave birth
— Experiencing nausea, vomiting, or morning sickness
If any of the above conditions exist you are required to have a written consent from your doctor and a liability waiver prior to performing a pregnancy massage.
Infant Massage is one of the most natural and pleasant methods of providing early nurturing. These techniques provide comfort, calming and soothing benefits that translate to love, security and physical comfort for an infant or child. This massage provides four distinct benefits to simulate all systems of the body including:
— Nervous System
— Circulatory System
— Respiratory System
— Elimination System
— Immune System
Stimulation to these systems encourages the release of oxytocin known as the cuddle hormone, prolactin and other endorphins.
Benefits of an Infant/Child Massage will reduce muscle stiffness and normalizes muscle tone. This type of massage will facilitates body awareness, creates sensory stimulation, boosts immune system, improves skin condition and blood circulation, helps digestion, balances respiration, relief of teething pains, helps waste elimination and will promote better sleep.

Babies and children are aware human beings who deserve respect, tenderness, warmth and above all a listening heart.

There is convincing evidence that pleasant aromas can improve our sense of well-being. The comforting nature of pure essential oils is easily accessed through their beautiful and powerful fragrances. Essential oils are known to contain many different healing properties. Each oil used in this technique has been selected specifically for their individual therapeutic benefit and aroma. Numerous studies have been conducted on the influences of aroma in reducing anxiety, stress and improving moods. Essential oils have been used for many centuries to return the body to a state of balance. Aromas can also evoke physical responses to improve health.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a valuable, time-tested and ancient method of treatment and prevention for overall body wellness. A Hydro Samfiles machine is the tool used by a trained professional to cleanse, hydrate and exercise the large bowel. This machine uses filtered water controlling temperatures and regulating pressure to alternately fill and empty the client's bowel based on their request.
During the process you will receive a gentle abdominal massage. This treatment accompanied with herbs works in conjunction to ease the removal of recent and old waste material. These sessions are VERY effective.
A consultation is required to meet with the therapist to discuss your personal needs and to prescribe the number of sessions received.
The A.R.P stands for Accelerated Recovery Program. The best working definition for the A.R.P. can be found at www.arpwaveclinic.com. From a general prospective, the A.R.P. is an electric stimulation device containing a stim type which is standard for the Physical Therapy industry. In addition the A.R.P. offers Russian stimulation which can eccentrically contract or elongate muscles depending upon the optimal placement of the pads. The A.R.P. is an individualized tool to break down any pattern of muscle eschemia, trigger point, or dysfunction.
A.R.P. protocols can be used to speed recovery to any soft tissue injury or inflammation, especially those areas which are too sensitive to physical touch. This treatment can be done during a message therapy session.
Oxygen reduces stress, increases energy/alertness, and detoxifies. Inhaling deeply enhances your well-being and strengthens the immune system, and general concentration. The oxygen bar is used for recreational & entertainment purposes only and is not used for the treatment of any illness. The aromas have an intention of their own. The use of the Oxygen Bar at The D-Stress Station is to educate clients on the importance of breathing deep abdominal breaths to increase the oxygen flow to the lymph system which will increase the blood flow to the muscle tissue to relax and detoxify the body.
Anyone who suffers from headaches and sinus problems will notice their symptoms will lessen based on the increased intake of oxygen.
