Massage Therapy

massageHarmony Studios offers massage services, combining the best of western and eastern styles.

Massage is one of the oldest forms of healing that is still practiced today. It is a natural type of treatment, a therapy which allows your body to heal itself.

Although the many benefits of massage are universal, each person has different needs, resulting from a lifetime of unique experiences.

Massage addresses those unique needs, making it automatically tailored for each individual.

Therapeutic Table Massage:  As an ever-increasing part of many medical therapies, massage therapy has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including fatigue, high blood pressure, back pain, arthritis, depression, insomnia, digestive disorders, anxiety and more. Massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday life that can lead to illness and disease. Therapeutic Table Massage Therapy is performed on a massage table, the disrobed client covered by a sheet, with only the area being worked on exposed. It incorporates Swedish, Deep Tissue and Trigger Point Massage to stimulate circulation, and relieve knots and chronic muscle tension in deeper seated muscles and the fascia. A combination of techniques are used, with the application of lotion to reduce friction on the skin. Benefits of Therapeutic Massage include stress reduction, and relief of muscular tensions, soreness and pain. The intent of this treatment is to calm the nervous system and begin the process of flushing toxins and waste from the body and create an atmosphere of healing for the mind and body.

Heaven and Earth Massage: Both practical and indulgent, Heaven and Earth is a soothing 30-minute head, scalp and neck massage, followed by pressure point massage of the feet. The head, scalp and neck are massaged rhythmically in order to open the energy channels, clearing the way for the body to engage in its own healing process. Soothing massage of the reflex points in the feet causes the body to send signals that balance the nervous system and release healthy chemicals, such as endorphins, to relieve pain and stress. This heavenly experience will leave you with a deeper sense of inner balance and connectedness within your mind and body. Benefits include relief from tension headaches, neck and shoulder stiffness, plantar fasciitis, mental fatigue and anxiety.

Prenatal Massage: Care for yourself throughout all stages of your pregnancy with this massage specifically designed for expectant mothers. Prenatal massage will help to reduce stress, fatigue, low back pain and edema, promoting a sense of relaxation and calm.

Traditional Thai Yoga Massage:  Thai massage is a form of body work that is becoming increasingly popular in the West. A traditional Thai massage incorporates an ancient combination of acupressure, energy meridian work, and yoga-like stretching for an invigorating and balancing experience. Thai massage improves circulation, flexibility, muscle tone, and is the perfect complement to any exercise routine.

Thai massage is most different from other forms of massage in that there is no oil used, that the therapist uses a mattress on the floor (as opposed to a table), and that you remain completely clothed throughout the massage. Thai massage will help to relax sore or tense muscles, and can help to recapture lost range of motion. By encouraging lymphatic function, this traditional deep tissue massage and stretching can also detoxify the body, heighten the immune system, and prevent disease and/or injury by promoting flexibility.
