Benefits of Therapeutic Massage

Experience Registered Massage Therapy & Flotation Therapy Together

Combining your massage therapy treatment with a float in our Sensory Deprivation Tank can have a number of rejuvenating benefits for your body and mind.

Floating in the tank helps relax the nervous system while easing inflammation and pain, making it beneficial in the treatment of sore muscles and migraine headaches.

Epsom salts absorbed through the skin helps replenish magnesium, which produces serotonin (a mood elevating chemical that creates a feeling of calm and relaxation).

The body requires magnesium for the muscles to relax. Soaking in a float tank prior to a massage provides the added benefit of the muscles being in a state of relaxation before the massage even begins.

Floating after a massage therapy session has the benefit of drawing out toxins that are released during the massage.

Floatation therapy assists in soothing the sore muscles that have been worked on, helping reduce the level of tenderness muscles sometimes feel following a massage treatment.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping Therapy is an ancient technique using cups and suction to release tissue and detoxify the body. The use of both stationary plastic pump cups and silicone gliding cups are used in this practice to create the best benefits for you. The stationary cups are placed on strategic points and left for 5-20 minutes to draw out deep toxins and stagnant blood, while creating a metabolite flow within the muscle to allow circulation to move more freely and organs to function better. This also releases adherence (tissues stuck together) due to poor posture or old injuries.

The gliding cups work in a gentler fashion and are combined with massage techniques, gently lifting and separating tissue, allowing for better circulation, and therefore oxygenation of the tissues. In a session, both stationary and gliding cups may be used along with massage techniques.
