Therapeutic Massage Services

What is massage?
Massage is a general term for pressing, rubbing and manipulating your skin, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Massage may range from light stroking to deep pressure. At Reclaim Wellness, all massage services include the use of essential oils (as desired by the client) to promote healing and a feeling of well-being and relaxation in the recipient. There are many different types of massage available at Reclaim Wellness including:

Swedish Massage

This is a gentle form of massage that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping to help relax and energize you.

Deep Massage

This massage technique uses slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.

Sports Massage

This is similar to Swedish massage, but it’s geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries.

Trigger Point Massage

This massage focuses on areas of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse.

Lymphatic Massage

A customized form of bodywork, lymphatic massage may help the lymph system do its job better; by assisting your body in clearing sluggish tissues of waste and swelling. For this massage, therapists use very light pressures in a rhythmic, circular motion to stimulate the lymph system to work more efficiently and help it move the lymph fluids back to the heart.

Prenatal / Postnatal / Side-Laying Massage

Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. The gentle, noninvasive approach of prenatal massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labor and give her nurturing emotional support. Side-Laying massage is also beneficial for those who are unable to remain flat on their back for an extended period of time but would like to receive the benefits of massage.

Medical Massage

The goal of Medical massage is to evaluate and assess each patient’s condition to see what type of bodywork will be most beneficial in improving their quality of life and decreasing their pain. While both our our massage therapists are training in Medical Massage, Hanna Feder is currently enrolled in a Medical Massage certification program with a scheduled completion date of September 2018.

Reflexology

Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet, hands and ears. Reflexology is generally relaxing and may be an effective way to alleviate stress. The theory behind reflexology (like that of acupressure or acupuncture) is that these areas correspond to organs and systems of the body. Proponents believe that pressure applied to these areas affects the organs and benefits the person’s health. Several studies indicate that reflexology may reduce pain and psychological symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, and enhance relaxation and sleep. Studies also show that reflexology may have benefits in palliative care of people with cancer.

Benefits of massage

Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension. While more research is needed to confirm the benefits of massage, some studies have found massage may also be helpful for:

  • Anxiety
  • Digestive disorders
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia related to stress
  • Myofascial pain syndrome
  • Soft tissue strains or injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Temporomandibular joint pain

Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage because it often produces feelings of caring, comfort and connection. Despite its benefits, massage isn’t meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know you’re trying massage and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have.

Risks of massage

Most people can benefit from massage. However, massage may not be appropriate if you have:

  • Within 48 hours of illness or infection
  • Bleeding disorders or take blood-thinning medication
  • Burns or healing wounds
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Fractures
  • Severe osteoporosis
  • Severe thrombocytopenia
  • Discuss the pros and cons of massage with your doctor, especially if you are pregnant or you have cancer or unexplained pain.

Some forms of massage can leave you feeling a bit sore the next day. But massage shouldn’t ordinarily be painful or uncomfortable. If any part of your massage doesn’t feel right or is painful, speak up right away. Most serious problems come from too much pressure during massage.

Reiki

Healing Touch! Reiki is an ancient Japanese technique in which the therapist channels energy to stimulate the body’s natural healing processes to restore well being of mind, body, and spirit. In fact the word reiki means universal life energy. Introductory Physics classes teach that energy is neither created or destroyed so exists in all things all the time. The body has its own energy field and your energy should flow freely and be in balance in your energy centers or chakras. Reiki helps ease tension, stress, physical, mental, and emotional imbalance using spiritually guided life force energy.

Photon Light Facial

Glowing Health! Low intensity light therapy has been studied intensively for the past 40 years around the world as a safe, effective, non-pharmacological alternative to stimulate the natural healing power of the body’s cells. Different colors represent different wavelengths of light and penetrate the skin to different levels effecting change. It is good for all skin colors, types, and conditions and has no known contraindications. Benefits of light therapy include tissue repair at the cellular level, antiaging effects, anti-inflammatory effects, antibacterial effects, increased cellular oxidation and repair, reduced depression and fatigue.

Oracle Card Readings

Ancient Greeks sought their oracles to answer life’s questions and help in decision making and quests. Today, Oracle cards provide divination and spiritual guidance. They can offer general guidance or you can ask about specific situations such as love, relationships, finances or your life path. Come explore with this powerful and insightful tool.

DOT physical

If you are a professional driver or have a CDL license to maintain, you need a physical mandated by federal law. These “fitness for duty” exams involve a urine test, eye test, hearing test, and basic physical to determine if each driver is physically able to carry out the duties of a commercial driver.

Sports physical

The pre-participation sports physical is to evaluate safety of participating in different types of sports. Most schools and athletic leagues require these in an effort to be aware of possible health issues affecting your ability to play sports safely.

Integrative Health

Best of both worlds! Integrative medicine looks at the whole person: mind, body and spirit. It is a healing oriented therapeutic modality that utilizes both conventional and alternative treatment options.

Why are successful people successful? Because they believe they can be.
