Neural Reset Therapy (NRT)

This therapeutic work is a quick release of tense, tight and painful musles. Our muscles are controlled by the nervous system and with proper application of NRT, the nervous system resets to release a muscle from tension and pain. The NRT resets muscle knots, pain, tightness, and increases joint mobility.

How does NRT work:

A varied stimuli (such as pressure, vibration, or a tap) is applied to the muscle, which activates the mechanoreceptors.  The receptors respond to pressure, vibration, stretch and other forces. The information is carried by sensory neurons to the spinal cords. If there is an overwhelming amount of information, the reset of the muscle occurs to decrease the muscle tone (relax the muscle & lengthen). 

The therapist briefly stimulates the receptors in the selected muscle by asking for a position to be held or a movement in a particular direction. The therapists may also tap or vibrate on a muscle in such a way as to cause receptors to send a special message to the spinal cord.

The message goes through the spinal integrated center which will reset the nervous system so the muscle is reset, the muscular pain, tension and tightness disappear within seconds.

This therapy can be done fully dressed or added on to a Therapeutic or Custom Massage.

Only $45 for 30 minutes,   60 minutes for only $65.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD)

Lymphatic Massage is a gentle, relaxing form of massage that helps with lymphatic flow and improves immune support. This is an extremely gentle massage with light touch on the skin but very effective and beneficial for increasing lymphatic flow. It can improve over all health and boost your immune system.

Most of the lymphatic vessels are just below the skin. Light, slow pressure  follows the pulse and rhythm of the lymphatic system and get the lymphatic vessels to respond. Each stroke slightly moves the skin in the direction of lymphatic flow to encourage the drainage of lymph fluid and waste.

The delicate, gentle nature of each stroke as it glides across the skin sometimes feels as if nothing is happening, especially for those who are used to deep bodywork.  But it's exactly that noninvasive nature of MLD Massage that makes it work and effective.
