Neuromuscular Therapy This St. John’s method utilizes evaluation of postural distortions, biomechanical dysfunction and soft tissue patterns to allow the therapist to develop a program of individual therapy. Locating ischemic areas in soft tissue determines trigger points, nerve compression and/or entrapment possibilities. The tone is then normalized to allow the central nervous and musculoskeletal systems to balance. Excellent for pain relief.

Pre-and Peri-Natal Massage During pregnancy, a woman's body undergoes many postural and physiological changes. Massage will help the mother's body to adapt to these changes by improving circulation and therefore increasing oxygenation of the soft tissues, reducing inflammation and swelling, relieving muscle aches and joint pain. Also massage will help to regulate hormones, promote better sleep and reduce headaches due to muscle tension and sinus congestion. The massage therapist also lends emotional support reducing anxiety of physical and life changes and the impending birth of baby. Studies have shown regular massage during pregnancy can improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Postpartum massage helps to return the uterus to its pre-pregnancy size, alleviate symptoms of depression, increase milk production and regulate the functions of the gastrointestinal tract. Your massage therapist will also help the new mother learn basic techniques for massaging her new baby.
