Neuromuscular Massage is a form of specific soft tissue manipulation that focuses on relieving various forms of pain through treating the source. Pain has various components in the body and is unique in how it presents itself. Trigger point activity in the muscle may cause a variety of effects: headaches, pain, numbness, tingling, dizziness, and blurred visions—all of which may easily be overlooked and diagnosed as some other medical condition. Neuromuscular therapy aids in identifying the cause of pain and treating the source, rather than the symptoms which are mostly referred discomfort.

Oncology Massage is an approach to massage therapy based in compassion and specialized massage to help people manage their experience with cancer. Oncology massage therapists are trained to adjust massage sessions in regard to the client’s condition, type and duration of cancer treatment and their side effects. The style of massage for clients going through treatment for cancer is non-circulatory, relaxation massage. The treatments for cancer are extremely taxing on the body and can cause many complex side effects. Deep tissue and other massage modalities that increase circulation are not appropriate at this time. Massage from a trained therapist during cancer treatment can improve quality of life during a time of extreme physical and emotional duress. Benefits of massage include relaxation, improved sleep and relief of anxiety, pain, fatigue and nausea.
