Therapeutic / Deep Tissue Massage Therapy

Therapeutic / Deep Tissue Massage Therapy focuses on releasing restrictions in the deeper layers of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and helps to reduce scar tissue. 

I put these two together however, they are not always the same.

Massage can be therapeutic and reach the deepest layers of tissues without causing a lot of pressure on the body or discomfort and pain for the client.

However, sometimes, in certain circumstances, a little discomfort can be experienced during your threatment in order to accomplish a goal of decreasing tension, scar tissue, etc... At times the tenderest touch can cause discomfort if the client is in an accute inflammatory condition, at which therapeutic or Lymphatic drainage massage is indicated and some discomfort may be experienced during treatment, as they are experiencing pain already.

But Deep Tissue does not always indicate that the therapist will be pushing very hard on your muscles. Sometimes yes. And sometimes, using very light and specific techniques can reach the deepest layers and issues in the tissues with great technique and without causing a lot of discomfort. These are things that can and should be discussed with your therapist prior to your massage. Talk about your preferences and our recommendations and come to a compromise that will better your health and well-being.

resisted release.

This type of massage is performed on massage table. It is performed over the clothing with the client wearing athletic-wear. Oil, lotion, and aromatherapies are not normally used on the skin however, can sometimes be included.

Prenatal & Postnatal Massage Therapy

Prenatal & Postnatal Massage Therapy (also known as Pregnancy Massage) is an excellent decision for moms-to-be, a great way to relieve muscle tension, increase circulation, and encourage relaxation. 

Massage Therapy can greatly help reduce pain and discomfort during pregnancy. Massage Therapy can help with such conditions such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Sciatica, back pain, neck tension, sprains and strains, etc...

Thai Yoga Massage

Massage Therapy is much much more than just a body rub. However, touch alone has been studied and proven to be highly therapeutic and helpful in reducing pain and stress.

We value that "touch" in our profession, and would never under-value or underestimate it's wonderful impact on healing.

That said, Massage Therapy is much much more. It is Assessing joints, tissues, pathology - it is digging deeper and locating the source of your pain and discomfort, and taking the necessary steps to guiding you back to health and well-being.

We do not have a magic pill that will make you better in one shot. We do not use expensive tools and toys and machines made to intimidate and make you believe you will magically get better after a few treatments from it.

And temporary relief - well, you can get temporary relief just about anywhere. You can probably get it cheaper and faster than here. 

But we are not about temporary relief. We strive for long-term health, and for you to have a long healthy life. If you are interested in long-term results, and are ready to take the necessary steps to attain those results, including hard-work with self-care (homework), you are in the right place.

Isn't it time to stop wasting time, energy, and money on temporary relief?

Trust Your Massage Therapist Again.


Our goal is to treat the cause(s) of your symptoms first. Treating the symptoms alone does not resolve the issue long-term. 

Imagine a boy and a girl (brother and sister). Imagine the boy pulling the girls hair. Therefore, her head is in pain. Treating the symptoms alone would mean massaging the girls scalp while her hair was being pulled. Treating the cause however, would mean finding a way to ensure her hair is no longer being pulled - the symptom of her aching scalp will eventually dicipate thereafter.

Inflammation and therefore, Adhesion, are really the biggest reason for pain and discomfort in our tissues, but no one wants to talk about it. No one wants to resolve it truly - no, because they want "Now" results!

I can tell you - that is not reality. Immediate results (with smart work, not just hard work) IS attainable. But it takes work.

When you have seen multiple health practitioners with little to no results - please visit Stone RMT - we will remove Adhesion and get you feeling better again!

How do we treat you?
