Better Life sessions may include one or more of the following treatments.

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) 

NMT is a specific massage technique that aims to reduce chronic pain, increase range of motion, and correct postural distortions.  When certain points of your muscle become taught there can be a restriction of blood flow as well as a direct affect on nerves in the body.  These points are referred to as trigger or tender points and can refer pain or numbness to other parts of your body.  Pressure is directly applied to the specific point allowing the affected area to relax so the muscle can then be gently stretched and mobilized. Circulation is improved and the body returns to its normal neuromuscular integrity and balance. 

 


Myofascial Release (MFR)

MFR is often utilized to release non-moving or “stuck” connective tissue throughout the body.  Many times, people suffering from chronic pain, tension, lost range of motion, or have postural imbalances,  will benefit from this treatment.  By releasing restrictions in the connective tissue, the muscle tension will become equalized throughout the body which in turn allows you to experience freer movement as well as better postural balance.

 


Structural Energetic Therapy (SET)

SET is the integration of cranial/structural releases (NOT craniosacral), energetic healing, and specialized Myofascial Release.  These techniques work together to realease patterns of distortion with the ultimate goal of restoring balance to the body for the long term.

 


Sports Massage Therapy

Sports massage is designed for athletes, amateur or professional.  This treatment includes muscle specific techniques paired with assisted stretching and prepares the body for pre, post and intermittent events.  Sports massage can reduce injury as well as recovery time, enabling an athlete to resume training much sooner than rest alone would allow.

 


Hot Stone Therapy

Hot Stone Therapy is a luxurious treatment utilizing smooth basalt stones.  The stones are gently positioned in just the right areas, to allow increased blood circulation and to melt away muscular tension.  This is a 90 minute treatment which is sure to take you away to a different world.

 


Prenatal

A beneficial massage for the expecting mother and her child.  Trained therapists aid in your relaxation and the relief of the physical discomforts during this time in your life.  Most sessions are performed as you lie on your side with pillows.  We ask that you are in your second trimester prior to having your prenatal session with us.

 


Craniosacral

Craniosacral is an alternative therapy which is received fully clothed.  Through gentle therapeutic touch, the trained practitioner will work with the spine, skull, cranial sutures and fascia; ultimately, reglating the flow of Cerebrospinal Fluid.  Craniosacral focuses on the treatment of core issues at a deep level instead of symptoms.
