Manual Therapy

Therapeutic massage helps ease pain, increase flexibility, and prevent injury as muscles heal. Relaxation massage helps to boost stress-busting endorphins so you can sleep, play, and work better each day.

In some cases, your massage may even be covered by your insurance. If your insurance does not cover massage therapy, you can still enjoy the many physical and mental benefits of massage with our reasonable rates, flexible payment plans, and choice of session lengths.

– Full session, approximately 55 minutes: $70
– Half session, approximately 25 mintues: $35

We offer four of the most popular types of massage to help people from all walks of life—from the seasoned athlete to the expectant mother and everyone in between.

– Swedish massage
– Deep tissue massage
– Prenatal massage
– Sports massage

Therapeutic Exercise

Part of the recovery process requires strengthening the weakened muscles of your injured or painful areas. This provides better support to the joints and prevents pain from recurring. Our experts have years of training in the use of gentle therapeutic exercises.

We show you how to do easy exercises in the correct way to improve your range of motion, strength, flexibility, coordination, and stamina. In addition, we also teach you how to perform these exercises at home, so you can maintain your results.
