Mind/Body Maintenance Massage

  • Designed for regular massage clients seeking a "full body" massage.  If you don't have any particular pain or areas of concern to work on, but want to have a more relaxing-oriented massage, select this option.  This session may incorporate aromatherapy, soothing massage techniques, craniosacral therapy, more time on feet, scalp, and neck, etc - the goal is to get you out of your head, provide the traditional benefits of massage (improved circulation, blood pressure, dopamine/serotonin production, immune system support, etc) and leave you refreshed and ready to enjoy a nice long nap when you get home!

Janelle clearly knows what she's doing and it's evident that she loves what she does and has an intuitive, educated, and professional talent in alleviating all types of body aches.  Out of many visits to different spaces (mostly overpriced ones thinking you get what you pay for), her techniques were the most therapeutic.. real "massage therapy." 
I've been going to Janelle for quite a number of months now.  Due to going to the gym a lot each week, my muscles all over my body can become knotted and tender.  Since starting massage sessions with Janelle she's helped ease a lot of the pain and helped my body recover faster every time I got to her.  She's super knowledgeable and you can tell she really loves her job and really wants to help people get better.  She is a fantastic massage therapist, who listens to what you feel needs worked on or is causing the most problems.  
I've been a massage therapist for many years and I can say that I've had a difficult time finding someone who has the knowledge, skill, and inherent gift for finding and effectively releasing the cause of dysfunction and chronic pain, like Janelle.

Sports Massages Tailored To Atheletes

Athletes should discuss with their massage therapist what their specific needs are in order to get the most benefit from sports massage. For example, an athlete who is training for a marathon may need a different type of massage than an athlete who is recovering from an injury. Sports massage should be tailored to the needs of the individual athlete.  Whether you weightlift, crossfit, yoga, surf, run, or kickbox, our therapists know the unique demands of your sport on the body and will customize the massage to keep you performing at your best. 
 

Athletes may find that they feel sore after a sports massage. This is normal and is a result of the therapist working the muscles and tissues. The soreness should go away within a day or so. If the soreness persists, the athlete should consult with their massage therapist. Sports massage can be an important part of an athlete's training and competition regimen. It can help prevent injuries, improve performance, and speed up recovery from training and competition. Book your sports massage appointment today!
