Skilled at a variety of bodywork techniques, the licensed massage therapists at Ahimsa Massage & Healing strive to ease the body, calm the mind, and heal the spirit with a holistic variety of bodywork techniques. During Swedish massage sessions, dexterous hands boost circulation with rolling, kneading, and percussion strokes aided by oils or lotion. The Japanese technique of reiki aims to trigger each person’s natural healing mechanisms with light touches, which redirect the body’s energy without accessing the circuit breaker located in its bellybutton. Those with deeply embedded knots can enlist their soul sacks in the deep-tissue massage that releases chronic stress with firm pressure or the pregnancy massage that relieves pains associated with carrying a baby or a fanny pack filled with cinder blocks. While waiting to be whisked away on a cloud of relaxation, visitors can enjoy Ahimsa’s peaceful setting, which is marked by vibrant canvases, bright chair cushions, and blossoming flowers.
The licensed massage therapist at Ahimsa Healing pulls out every tool in the musculoskeletal toolbox, calling on everything from the popular gliding strokes of Swedish massage to the energy-based healing techniques of Japanese reiki to defeat chronic pain. Visits begin with an intake form, on which clients or enchanted pencils scribble down notes regarding chronic conditions or injuries so that therapists can design a custom pain-relieving treatment. Nimble hands then manipulate muscles, calling upon deep-tissue kneads to offset injuries and craniosacral therapy to reduce headaches caused by accidentally holding your helmet and wearing your jackhammer.
