    Services

    Swedish Massage Therapy

    Swedish massage is the combination of techniques rolled into one session. During this therapy session, your therapist will work with the soft tissues and muscles in the body to help restore balance and health.

    The end result will relax all of the muscles in your body and to release any pain that tension may exist.

    A Swedish massage is a perfect way for anyone who is overworked and stressed to relax their body and mind. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.

    Neuromuscular

    Manual Therapy

    Neuromuscular therapy is a specialized form of deep tissue massage in which digital pressure and friction are used to release areas of strain in the muscle.

     

    NMT is highly effective for clients who present with chronic pain and is often successful in reducing or eliminating even longstanding painful conditions. Some of the techniques can also be applied to acute injuries and for post-surgical care; many help to improve performance in sport or dance and to prevent injuries due to these activities.

     
     

    Deep Tissue Massage

    Natural Healing

    With our Deep Tissue Massage therapy, clients claim to feel relaxed and renewed after each session. We tailor your session to work on your specific goals and needs. We love showing our clients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health.

    Trigger Point Therapy

    An Ancient Science

    Trigger Point Therapy is a healing technique based on the principle of free and uninterrupted energy flow and helps activate the natural healing processes in each patient's body as well as to restore their physical and emotional well-being. We help patients reduce their stress and anxiety, among other ailments.

    Reflexology

    Holistic medicine is a broad range of medical practices that are based on many years of tradition. With our Reflexology treatment, your body and mind will feel free and clear of all worries and stress that life places upon us. We are trained in a variety of holistic techniques that will surely help to heal you both mentally and physically.

    Orthopedic Massage Therapy

    Orthopedic Massage (OM) describes a comprehensive system, rather than a single technique, that involves therapeutic assessment, manipulation, and movement of soft tissues to resolve pain and dysfunction. OM's focus is restoring function and structural balance throughout the body for both prevention and rehabilitation of musculoskeletal dysfunctions. OM takes a multidisciplinary approach that looks to resolve the origin of the pain and dysfunction either from trauma-induced injuries or postural imbalances that exacerbate the pain through daily activities. Common orthopedic conditions can stem from sports injuries, postural imbalances due to poor work ergonomics, chronic pain and scar tissue from surgery or traumatic injury.

    Oncology Massage

    Oncology massage is the modification of existing massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatment. Anyone who has ever received cancer treatment, from those in active treatment to those in recovery or survivorship, as well as those at the end of life, are best served by a massage therapist who has received training in oncology massage. 


    Essential aspects of an oncology massage therapist's skill set are an informed understanding of the disease itself and the many ways it can affect the human body; the side effects of cancer treatments, such as medications, surgery

    Active Isolated Stretching

     Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) is one of the methods of stretching most used by today's athletes, massage therapists, personal/athletic trainers, and professionals. Active Isolated Stretching allows the body to repair itself and also to prepare for daily activity. The Active Isolated Stretching technique involves the method of holding each stretch for only two seconds. This method of stretching is also known to work with the body's natural physiological makeup to improve circulation and increase the elasticity of muscle joints and fascia.
     

    Lomi Lomi

    Lomilomi is a traditional Hawaiian massage that devotees say it is extremely spiritual. But what is it and how does it work? Here are seven facts you might not know about this massage technique.
    Loving hands
    ‘Lomilomi’ means rub or massage, but is also known as ‘loving hands’ because it’s meant to be a nurturing, healing practice done with love and good intentions.
    It’s rooted in the ancient Hawaiian philosophy of Huna, which says that the mind, body and spirit are all connected, and so works on the whole person, not just the muscles.
    Use your intuition
    There’s no set format or sequence in Lomilomi; no two massages are the same, just as no two clients are the same. Instead, therapists work intuitively to meet the needs of each individual person.
    Because Lomilomi was traditionally passed down within families on Hawaii, different strands have developed that use different techniques, but they all agree that you need to take a slow, meditative approach to put your client completely at ease.
    (Not just) hands on
    To perform Lomilomi properly you need to use more than just your hands. Therapists use their forearms and elbows, and even their knees and feet. The technique is to work gently yet deeply with long, flowing under and full body strokes. These rhythmic movements often remind clients of gentle ocean waves washing over them.
    Energy flow
    Hawaiians traditionally believe that the flow of energy through the body is extremely important, and that blockages can occur in both mind and muscle. Because Huna says everything is connected, if the mind is blocked by stress or you have muscle tension, it will affect the whole person.
    With Lomilomi, your goal is to put clients into a deeply relaxed state so they can let go and any blockages can be released. It’s just as much about releasing a client’s mental anxiety and tension as it is about massaging their muscles.
    The more the merrier
    If you want to give your clients an amazing Lomilomi experience, consider working with another therapist. According to experts having four or more hands working together sends the client into an even greater state of relaxation, as the brain can’t focus on all the hands at the same time.
    Therapists working alone often mimic this by massaging two different parts of the body at once, for example one hand working on a shoulder and the other on the opposite hip.
    Do a little dance
    While channelling your good intentions and performing Lomilomi in a loving way, you also need to maintain your own energy. This is done through your movements – therapists perform a hula dance around the table as they work, which assists the energy flow in the room.
    Therapists also usually start the session by saying a short ‘pule’, a blessing or prayer, to ask for healing to take place, and talk to clients about incorporating things like meditation or a change of diet into their routine.
    Show some skin
    Clients should be prepared to show a bit more skin during Lomilomi than in other massages. Because it focuses on the whole body, with multiple areas being worked on at once, clients generally lie directly on the table with only a small towel covering them. This makes it easier to perform underbody and full body strokes without interrupting the flow

    I can't say enough about Christine. She is a fabulous massage therapist, one of the best around. I am a long distance runner, and if it wasn't for the massage therapy I receive from Christine I would not be able to do what I do.

    I have had hundreds of massages and I was blown away by the detail of Christine's Massage therapy , I have never had such a great massage with such detail. She has removed the pain I had in my Neck in Head for the past several weeks . I had been to Accupuncturist's,Chiropractor's and nothing would relieve my pain the pain pills the doctor gave me did not help .
    Thanks to Christine I am totally pain free.


    Big Thank you ,

    Christine and her team are simply amazing. I have serious spine issues and have been able to avoid surgery thanks to her. I can't say enough good things about her expertise and her caring. Go and let her do her magic you-you'll be so happy you did!

    Beth Grath

    I absolutely love going to Advanced Massage Therapy! Both Christine and Jared seem to innately know just what's bothering me, and help make it feel so much better. Can't wait for my next visit. :)

    Every massage I've ever gotten started with the therapist asking what kind of pressure I like. Christine just KNEW. She could tell where my muscles were tight without any direction and after the session was over, she gave suggested stretches to help loosen up the tight areas. The room was beautifully decorated and the music was perfect. It really set the mood for relaxation. The face cradle was even scented. Fantastic attention to detail and a wonderful experience overall.
