Massage therapy is the manipulation of skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments with the goal of helping the body to heal itself.
Our bodies store toxins in our tissues, including chemicals and metals from our environments, lactic acid from overworked muscles, and waste products from our diets. A build-up of these toxins can cause anything from soreness and stiffness to disorder and dis-ease.
This is where massage therapy, in conjunction with nutritional and chiropractic care, can help. By using varying levels of pressure in certain areas, massage can reach into even the deepest tissues of the body, improving circulation and blood flow, breaking up scar tissue, and assisting in the elimination of waste products.
Your health and safety is our priority.
During these challenging times we wanted to take a moment to reassure you that we are following all CDC protocols and guidelines to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all our clients.
On top of the protocols, we took it a step further by having our staff trained in an infection control course for salon and spa professionals.

Increased blood and lymphatic circulation have many great benefits, especially during pregnancy. Swelling during pregnancy is often caused by reduced circulation and increased pressure from the uterus. Massage encourages the lymphatic system to remove any collected fluids, while the boost in blood circulation increases blood flow to the placenta and improves overall immunity.
Prenatal massage also helps to regulate hormone levels, leading to decreased anxiety and symptoms of depression. Norepinephrine and cortisol, hormones associated with stress, have been shown to decrease with regular massages, while the hormones dopamine and serotonin have been shown to increase; low levels of dopamine and serotonin are associated with depression. Hormone regulation also aids in better sleep and increases energy levels during the day. It also leads to fewer complications during birth and lowers the chance of postnatal complications in newborns.
Abdominal Massage is a non-invasive external massage technique that addresses the position of the uterus and the problems that can be caused by it being displaced. The uterus is held in place by ligaments. When stressed or strained, these ligaments can lead to the uterus being mal-positioned. This can be caused by injury to the sacrum or tailbone from a fall, car accidents, etc.; pelvic ligaments that have weakened from overstretching during pregnancy or birth; high impact exercise, running on cement surfaces, etc.; lifting and carrying heavy objects before or during menstruation or too soon after childbirth; chronic muscle spasm around the low back and sacrum; emotional armoring from abuse at any time in life; time and gravity; past surgeries; or weak pelvic floor muscles. These techniques can also help alleviate common digestive complaints.
Some of the conditions that can be improved by this type of massage include painful periods and ovulation, irregular menstrual cycles and ovulation, infertility, endometriosis, bladder or yeast infections, displaced or prolapsed uterus, PMS/depression with menstruation, perimenopause and menopausal symptoms, and enhances pregnancy and aids in labor and delivery.

“Madison was kind, compassionate, and professional. She listened to all my thoughts and areas of muscle tension and made those were addressed during my massage session. She made me feel comfortable and relaxed! I would recommend Madison to any expectant mother for prenatal massage and I’m sure she would be fabulous for other services as well!”
“Overall it was great. It seemed she knew lots of great skills. She was very thorough from top of head to bottom of feet too. She was also little more therapeutic than just ” feel good massage”. She engaged her skills using muscles’ origin and insertion. As a chiropractor, I was very surprised she used excellent skills. She said she learned from her professor who is a physical therapist. Her intensity of massage was not too strong though, but I felt great after getting massage. I did not feel soreness after massage. Most of all, I felt like toxins in my body released throughout massage session, my face became glowing after all. I highly recommended Madison.”
“Madison was very professional, very soft spoken and I felt comfortable with her working on me. She focused primarily on neck/shoulders/upper back because that area needed a lot of work. She asked my preference in pressure and I think she was right on target with it. I felt very relaxed and comfortable and still feel the benefits of last weeks massage. So I would definitely recommend her!”
“Professional, knows the working of the body, I enjoyed it very much because it wasn’t “fluff,” I felt like things were being “worked out.”
