Deep Tissue Massage
A technique that provides relief for chronic aches and muscle tension that may include the neck and shoulders, upper and lower back and leg muscles. Deep tissue massage releases chronic muscle tension using deep pressure and slow strokes that go into the fascial layers of muscle tissue at the source of an injury.
The practitioner applies moderate pressure to release tension and improve mobility due to injury in the muscles and surrounding tissue. Kneading style strokes stretch and loosen the fibrous bands within the nerves and joints that extends to provide relief to muscles and connective tissues.
Carried out by a trained and certified Living Healthy Massage Inc. massage therapist, positional release moves both the muscle and joint simultaneously to achieve a full release of tension and restore pain-free movement. Positional release is an effective technique that restores joint mobility, relieves fascial tension and muscle spasms while addressing a range of soft tissue dysfunctions.

Hot Stone Massage
Heat is an excellent resource when attempting to heal sore and fatigued muscle tissue. That is one of the reasons why saunas and hot tubs are popular ways to relax.
With this relaxing technique heat is transferred to the body using specialized polished stones which are placed at key points on the body. Heat makes the muscles expand and become more pliable, allowing a professional therapist to get deep into the tissue to remove knots and eliminate tension.
Discovered in a 4th century ancient Chinese medicinal handbook, one of the earliest recorded reports on cupping therapy illustrates the practice of using a cup to draw up the skin as a treatment for headaches, dizziness and abdominal pain. Early practitioners used animal horns placed on specific meridian points of the body to provide relief and healing. Today, Living Healthy Massage Inc. cupping therapy is administered by certified specialist that involves careful application of cups to the affected area of the body that loosen obstructions, draw toxins and balance the flow of ‘qi’ , - our vital life energy.
Similar to other ancient therapies, the practice of Shiatsu massage not only addresses the signs and symptoms of a particular condition, but is used to achieve a complete physical energy evaluation that helps to determine the most suitable treatment technique.

Recipients of Shiatsu massage remain fully clothed and in close communication with the massage therapist to ensure complete comfort during the treatment.
