What Kind of Bodywork Do I Need?

Not all bodywork is Massage. It is important to keep in mind that not all bodywork styles feel the same, and not all bodywork modalities can be captured by the word “massage.” Therapeutic Bodywork is the general term that encompasses all bodywork styles from Massage Therapy to Reiki, and includes over 200 modalities. BEFORE YOU BOOK, we recommend that you spend some time looking over the descriptions of the bodywork modalities our current practitioners offer.

Learn About Our Bodywork Modalities

Oil-free massage means no showers and no greasy skin, so you can go back to work refreshed without changing clothes. We work through your clothes and deeply focus on the areas that are causing your discomfort. Choose pressure from deep to relaxation. Close
Massage modalities vary by therapist and include: Deep Tissue, Sports, Swedish, Esalen, MyoFascial Release, CranioSacral, prenatal/postpartum, injury repair or Thai. Please ask the receptionist about these modalities when scheduling. Close
A form of bodywork done fully clothed, based in theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine, that uses pointed pressure applied by the thumbs to give the client a grounding and balancing experience. Shiatsu therapy is considered holistic because it attempts to treat the whole person instead of a specific medical complaint. Close
