Standard massage treatments make up the primary focus of the training programs offered to massage therapists.
Every massage therapist is provided training in these common modalities as they are foundational to a massage practice.
Specialized massage treatments are often associated to a specific and focused ideology that addresses a client's health issues from a different perspective or in a more creative way. Practitioners who obtain experience in these extended modalities do so by taking additional training and courses.
Specialized modalities can include unique tools such as silicone or glass cups, lava stones, or crystal sound bowls. They are also known to employ techniques that can be much more evasive or much less evasive than standard therapeutic treatments.
Motor Vehicle Accident Treatments (MVAs) are a common treatment type utilized by client who have experienced pain and injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident. These treatments are usually initiated by the client's car insurance and are part of the recovery process.
To open up an MVA treatment file, please book an MVA initial consultation treatment and your chosen practitioner with reach out to you with more information.

The benefits of massage therapy and acupuncture are becoming more and more pronounced in our busy world. What were once luxuries are now becoming necessities. Natural treatment methods are now superseding the need for pills, medications, and drugs.
Regular massage and acupuncture treatments not only resolve existing bodily ailments, but also prevent new ones from developing. By taking time to receive preventative treatments, you will experience relaxed muscles, increased flexibility and range of motion, improvements with posture and circulation, lower blood pressure, and relief from stress and anxiety.
Monthly or weekly treatments can promote deeper and easier breathing, a stronger immune system, enhanced post-operative rehabilitation, and of course, muscle pain and headache relief. Furthermore, each visit will provide you with valuable time to relax your mind, allowing you to disconnect from all of life’s distractions and challenges.
You do not have to be in severe pain or discomfort to receive massage therapy or acupuncture treatments, nor do you have to wait for special occasions.
Make massage therapy and acupuncture a consistent part of your lifestyle and experience their numerous benefits!
These are short and focused sessions that address specific areas of the body identified by the client. The 30 minute treatment length is often suggested to clients who are just becoming introduced to massage therapy, younger children, or those who struggle to remain in a lying-down position for extended periods of time.
Similar to the 30 minute treatment length, the 45 minute treatment is a short and focused session that addresses specific areas of the body identified by the client. The additional 15 minutes allows for more extensive work to be done on the already specified areas or to have other areas of concern addressed.
The 60 minute treatment length is the industry standard for massage therapy. This treatment duration allows your chosen therapist to incorporate the entire body in the massage. This time duration is by far the most commonly booked treatment length.
The 75 minute treatment is a continuation of the 60 minute treatment. In this treatment, the added 15 minutes allows your practitioner to do extra work on certain areas of tension or tightness, or to get treated to extra time with your feet, hands, head, scalp, or face.
90 minutes & 120 Minutes
Any massage treatment over the 90 minute mark allows for a very comprehensive and detailed massage experience. It is the ultimate massage experience as it allows for a full body massage with ample time to provide extra focus on areas of need, and to get treated to extra time with your feet, hands, head, scalp, or face.
NOT SURE WHICH DURATION TO BOOK?
Reach out to us and let us know what you are hoping to get out of your massage experience and we will provide you with guidance as to which type of treatment and duration would make it happen!
The most common treatment duration booked by clients is the 60-minute therapeutic treatment.
This treatment length provides ample time for your chosen practitioner to provide you with a full body treatment.
If you are interested in having a full body treatment, but with added work on a few extra areas of need, a treatment of 75-minutes or more would be most suitable for you.
Once your chosen practitioner becomes familiar with your health goals and the areas of your body that require additional attention, they may suggest one of our specialty treatment types. These types may include myofascial cupping, RAPID Neurofascial Reset, Sound Healing, Hot Stone, or even Meridian and Acupressure Massage.
Your practitioner will use their experience and training to address the health goals that you present, and will create a customized treatment plan that will optimize the healing process and get you feeling amazing in no time!
