Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. To minimize discomfort, tuning forks may be utilized to allow the vibration and harmonics to reduce the congestion in the tissues.  Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after any deep tissue treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the tissues during the session.


Ear Candling

A centuries-old technique, ear candling consists of a muslin cone that has been dipped in parafin or beeswax and formed into a 12" to 18" cylinder that is gently inserted into the outer ear canal. Flame retardant cloth drapes the face and head and a protective plate is added.  The cylinder is lighted and allowed to burn to approximately 4" above the ear.  During the lighted time, the therapist holds the cylinder in place and simultaneously applies light sinus massage to encourage sinus drainage and direct it to the ear canal.  The heat from the burning cylinder acts much like a vacuum, drawing ear wax and debris from the ear into the bottom of the cylinder.  This technique is especially helpful to those with Swimmers Ear or seasonal allergies.


East Meets West

When you don't need the relaxing benefit from massage but your body needs help to loosen up, try East Meets West.  This combination of proprioceptive stretching and Thai bodywork will increase mobility and flexibility and allow joints to move more freely.  Offered exclusively by Jeffrey Wyatt.


Facial Reflexology

What is Face Reflexology
Devised by Lone Sorensen , Face Reflexology combines three ancient therapies with modern science of neurology. It is the combination of Traditional Chinese Medicine, South American Zone Therapy, Vietnamese face maps & points and our most current knowledge of neuro-anatomy.


Hot Rockin' Reflexology

Take the best Reflexology session ever and marry it with Hot Stones and what do you get?  Hot Rockin' Reflexology uses all of the Reflexology principles and all of the benefits of Hot Stone Massage to engulf your feet and your spirit into total relaxation! Offered exclusively by Yvonne Long.


Hot Stone Therapy

Hot Stone Therapy is a style of massage where heated stones are placed at specific sites on your body to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones release tension and stress much more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. In addition, I will use hot stones in my hands to conduct the massage.  The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing, and rejuvenating.


Myofascial Release

Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.


Pregnancy/Post-Partum Massage

Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation.  Please note that Tranquil Touch will only accept patients in their second and third trimesters.  High risk patients must have the permission of the Obstetrician before proceeding.


Reflexology

Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.


Repetitive Use Injury Technique

Repetitive Use Injury Technique (RUIT) is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics or suffer from repetitive use injuries. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Repetitive use injuries can be sustained by anyone who use their body in the same fashion for prolonged periods, such as waitresses, tradesmen, or office workers.  RUIT enhances performance and prolongs any career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates.


Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines use oflotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.


Tranquil Touch at Home

$30 per 30 minutes

Tranquil Touch at Home, provided exclusively by Ellen Kornmeyer, is offered to our non-ambulatory, home bound, clients.  This service is most requested by caregivers who are living with loved ones recovering from surgery, afflicted with neurological impairment (such as Alzeheimer's Disease, dementia or stroke), or may be in the end stages of life.  Using techniques such as Compassionate / Therapeutic Touch, Hands on For Cancer, or the 'M' Technique, Ellen works with the client to relax, soothe, and calm the client in a brief session, usually provided in the late afternoon or early evening to reduce agitation.  The client remains fully clothed and can be treated 'where they are' (such as a bed, wheelchair, recliner, etc.).
