Our registered massage therapists have years of training in diverse types of treatment techniques and massage therapy. Whether you’re injured or stressed, in chronic pain or just need a bit of relaxation, we will customize an integrative treatment plan that will help you achieve your optimal health.

The treatment plan will be discussed with you and suggestions will be made to optimize your personal therapy.

After the massage, you may be given some suggestions for home care, along with a recommendation for follow-up treatments.
