Swedish/Deep Tissue Massage:

A systematic and scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for the purpose of obtaining or maintaining health. 

Massage is instinctive. It is a natural response to rub our aches and pains, regardless of whether we are familiar with the medical knowledge behind those actions. In modern health care, therapeutic massage has taken on an important role. It has been shown to reduce stress, enhance blood circulation, decrease pain, promote sleep, reduce swelling, enhance relaxation, and increase oxygen capacity of the blood. Massage has also been recognized as a non-drug treatment for cancer and postoperative pain. Massage therapy addresses a variety of health conditions, the most prevalent being stress-related tension, which, experts believe, accounts for 80%-90% of disease. 

Massage provides relief to people of all ages-from infants to seniors-and from all walks of life-the weekend or competitive athlete to the home gardener or over-stressed, overworked executive. 


The knowledge that an unseen energy flows through all living things and is connected directly to the quality of health has been part of the wisdom of many cultures since ancient times. 

The existence of this "life force energy" has been verified by recent scientific experiments, and medical doctors are considering the role it plays in the functioning of the immune system and the healing process. 

Reiki is a technique for stress reduction and relaxation that allows everyone to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve health and enhance the quality of life. 

The relief of physical and emotional pain is not uncommon when receiving Reiki treatments. 

Reiki therapy is safe and non-invasive. It is proving useful in hospices, nursing homes, emergency rooms, operating rooms, organ transplantation care units, pediatric, neonatal and OB/GYN units; facilitating relaxation and recovery and decreasing anxiety and pain; it can also be a helpful addition to conventional therapy for HIV/AIDS and cancer patients.
