Massage Therapy


Each massage session is customized to your specific requests and goals for the session. Our therapists are skilled with various modalities to help you regenerate, renew, and refresh. Collectively, our therapists have over 20 years of experience in:

Massage Styles:

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue massage is closely related to a Swedish massage, with the main difference being the amount of applied pressure. A deep tissue massage applies firm pressure and slow strokes that reach a deeper layer of muscle, and the connective tissue that surrounds muscles called the fascia. It helps stiff neck and upper back pain, lower back pain, sore shoulders, leg muscle tightness, and chronic aches and pains.

Studies have also found that it has been proven to help in lowering blood pressure, reducing stress hormone levels, heart rate, boosting mood, and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.

Trigger Point Massage

Trigger Point Massage

A trigger point, also known as a “knot”, is a tight area within a muscle that can cause pain in one or more parts of the body. Once one trigger point has formed, the associated pain can travel to other parts of the body. For example, if you get a trigger point in your back it can also produce referral pain in the neck.

Trigger Point massage works by alleviating the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. Many therapists require the recipient to actively participate by identifying the exact location of the discomfort and using deep breathing tactics.

Swedish Relaxation Massage

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage, also known as the classic massage, is by far the most popular form of massage known today. The goal of a Swedish massage is to relax the entire body. This is done by rubbing the muscles using long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.

Swedish massage can benefit your body in more ways than just relaxation. It has also been known to increase the level of oxygen in your blood, improve circulation and flexibility while easing tension, and decreasing muscle toxins.

Sport Rehab Massage

CSport Rehab Massage

Sport massage can benefit athletes of all levels, from a professional athlete to a weekend jogger. It is designed to focus on areas of the body that are stressed from repetitive, or aggressive movements.

It has been proven to help athlete’s performance during pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. It can help reduce fatigue, prevent injuries, promote flexibility, improve endurance, and prepare athlete’s body and mind for peek performance.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is very similar to a Swedish massage with the key difference being the amount of pressure applied to the body. A mild amount of pressure will be applied to your lower back, hips, and legs.

Getting a prenatal massage during your pregnancy has been known to help reduce pregnancy body aches and pains, ease muscle tension, relieve insomnia, and reduce stress. Many women have also reported that it helped with other common pregnancy symptoms such as reducing swelling in your hands and feet, relieving carpal tunnel pain, and alleviate headaches and sinus congestion.

Tammy Harris

tammy

Hello! My name is Tammy and my husband Brian and I have been married for 32 years. I spent most of those years homeschooling our six children and in self-employment. An explosive device in Afghanistan changed the course of our family’s lives. After our son-in-law’s injuries, I decided to learn massage therapy for its calming, healing effects. I graduated from Collinson’s Massage School (April 2013 if you want the date). I also am certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Giving a massage, time with family and friends and hiking are a few of my favorite things. We look forward to serving you here at Radix!
