At Balance Care Massage Therapy, I offer a variety of specialized massages. The 4 core areas of my practice are:

Deep Tissue

Prenatal massage


Relaxation massage

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is designed to promote overall relaxation of the mind and body by using smooth gliding strokes and gently manipulating the tissue using Swedish techniques.

This type of massage is encouraged for anyone looking to incorporate self-care into their routines and take time for themselves to hit the "reset" button. Also a great introductory treatment for first-timers.

Designed to improve circulation, range of motion, and relieve minor muscle pain, relaxation massage has numerous benefits:

Reduced Blood Pressure

Improved to Peripheral Circulation

Improved Gastrointestinal (GI)

Reduced Muscle Tension & Headaches

Reduced Stress Symptoms like Anxiety & Depression

Increased Happy Hormones: Dopamine, Serotonin, and Endorphins

Improved Quality of Sleep

Set the perfect tone for your relaxation massage using a great selection of high-quality essential oils.

Therapeutic massage

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage goes beyond promoting relaxation and focuses on a specific injury or condition in order to help relieve pain and discomfort. Ie: neck and shoulder pain due to sitting at a computer all day, sciatica, strained low back, and many other musculoskeletal conditions

A moderate to deep pressure is used according to the comfort of the client. Specific muscles and areas are worked on and it may not be a full body treatment

An ongoing treatment plan may be created to treat a chronic or stubborn condition.

Deep tissue massage

Deep Tissue Massage

During a deep tissue massage, the primary goal is less about general relaxation and more about treating a specific injury, chronic pain, or constricted area, thereby promoting a change in the overall structure of the body.

The massage begins by applying firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia ( the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

This type of massage provides better alignment of the muscles and less restriction in the joints, creating a better range of motion.

It can help promote the healing of scar tissue, help lengthen and release muscles that frequently feel tense and get stuck in uncomfortable holding patterns.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is a therapeutic massage designed to alleviate the aches and pains of pregnancy.

There is a misconception that expectant mothers shouldn't have treatment during the first trimester, However, massage is safe throughout the entire pregnancy. A soothing and nurturing touch is used to help you feel relaxed once again.

Prenatal massage has many benefits:

Improved Circulation: Reduced Swelling in Legs & Feet

Reduced Stress Hormone: Cortisol

Improved Quality of Sleep

Reduced Back & Joint Pain

Pregnancy massage pillow

At balance care massage therapy, expectant mothers get to use our pregnancy pillow! This allows you to lie face down on the massage table comfortably while keeping mommy and baby safe.
