This type of massage is excellent for improving overall well-being, and providing a peaceful escape from the demands of daily life.

Deep massage is strong and rehabilitating. Slow strokes with direct pressure or friction are applied across the grain of the muscles.  This type of massage is used to release your chronic muscle tension. It is also useful to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Very therapeutic! Read More

Specialty Massage

Neuromuscular massage, often referred to as neuromuscular therapy (NMT) or trigger point therapy, is a specialized form of therapeutic massage that focuses on treating soft tissue issues related to the neuromuscular system. This type of massage therapy is typically used to alleviate chronic pain, muscle tension, and dysfunction, as well as to improve mobility and overall well-being. Neuromuscular massage therapists use a combination of techniques, including deep tissue massage, myofascial release, and trigger point therapy. These techniques involve applying targeted pressure and friction to specific muscle groups and trigger points to release tension and promote relaxation.

Neuromuscular massage

Cranio integrative therapy uses therapeutic techniques to address tension, pain, or discomfort in the upper back, neck, jaw, and face region through deep tissue manipulation. 

Using cranio therapy and structural integration techniques combining myofascial and trigger point therapy, we will release patterns that contribute to  painful conditions in the body. By integrating energetic healing techniques, we are able to release distress and emotional blockages to alleviate sources of chronic pain. Pressure will range from energy healing to deeper muscular work throughout the session.

Massage Enhancements

To further personalise your treatment and ensure no need is left unmet, you can also chose to enhance you massage add-on options like Cupping, Aroma Boost, Himalayan Salt Stones, and Muscle Relief Uplift. You gain more benefit the more senses you can indulge!

We provide a menu of add-on options that can make your experience a bit more decadent. These massage enhancements offered in our wellness center in Portsmouth, NH will assure that you can make the most of your visit for your massage sessions.

Aroma boost uses the aroma of essential oils to engage in the connection of mind-body awareness. The essential oils are inhaled and then absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream. Essential oils benefit the whole body and promote healing. If only all medicines were this pleasing to the senses!

A scalp massage is a soothing and stress-relieving technique designed to promote relaxation and relieve tension in the scalp and neck area. It’s typically a gentle and nurturing experience that involves manipulating the skin and muscles on the scalp using various hand and fingertip movements and pressures.

Scalp massage

Cupping uses the deliberate placement of inverted, silicone cups on your body. As a vacuum is created under the silicone, your skin rises and blood vessels expand to allow toxins to leave the body, improve circulation, relieve internal congestion, and restore imbalances within the body. Many cups can be placed on you at one time. Cupping does leave circles of discoloration on the skin, which usually heal in a few days. It can also cause swelling or other markings on the skin due to excess fluid or the release of toxins. You may look strange for a few days, but everyone will understand why it was worth it.

Himalayan salt stones are a sumptuous add-on to any massage. Stones are heated and therapeutically used throughout the session. The stones stay heated throughout the massage and the continual warmth enhances muscle relaxation, improves circulation, and calms your nervous system.  The therapist is also able to use deeper pressure. Much better than a hot water bottle!

In muscle relief, a combination of Cannabidiol Oil (CBD) and arnica is used in conjunction with integrative massage techniques to help calm inflammation and relieve chronic pain when applied to the skin. The oil has no THC, making sure you have no psychoactive effects.

The Graston Technique is a form of manual therapy known as soft-tissue instrument-assisted mobilization. It is one of a number of manual therapy approaches that uses instruments with a specialized form of massage/scraping the skin gently. The therapy is designed to help the practitioner identify areas of restriction and attempt to break down scar tissue and fascia restrictions.
