muscle tone, neuromuscular imbalances.
- Deep-Tissue Massage –releasing adhesions and congestion in specific Connective tissue
structures and muscles that cause restrictions of movement and pain.

- Sports Massage – treatments focused directly on the activities of the athlete in order to maintain peak form, increase performance level, reduce possibility of injury, and increase recovery time from an activity or injury.
- Myofascial Release – gentle, gradual compressions and stretches that help the connective tissue layers of the body rehydrate, become more flexible and release restrictions.
- Body Mobilization – gentle passive or active movements of the body that help elicit relaxation, or help engage the tissues being addressed in the massage.

- Isometric Stretching – series of alternating active contraction and passive stretching, allowing the muscles to be thoroughly stretched, immediately following activity.
- Breathing – various forms of breathing are incorporated as needed, to help deepen relaxation, increase oxygen flow to the tissues, and release held patterns of tension in the body, especially in the upper body.
- Hydrotherapy – the use of moist heat to help relax tense muscle tissues and soften fascial structures.
