Hot Stone Massage - uses smooth, heated stones to relax stubborn musculature; the heat also stimulates detoxification on a deeper layer than regular massage.
Other modalities - used in conjunction with those listed above: Myofascial Release, Craniosacral Therapy, Passive Stretching and Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) stretching.
Hunter Method - an unconventional therapy created by Stephanie Hunter using touch and movement to change muscle memory and get people out of pain. This method is interactive and the client is clothed. By using movement and a targeted touch, it signals to the brain that it’s okay to move bringing chronically contracted muscle back to optimal tone. Many clients feel relief in 5-10 sessions depending on the severity of the issue.
