Massage Descriptions

More than just an occasional 'treat'

Regular massage is essential in these increasingly stress-filled times. Massage may help improve circulation, boost immune system functioning, and release old stress patterns. Just as yoga practice is more beneficial when practiced on a consistent basis, massage is most effective when received regularly. At Bloom, we believe strongly in massage and offer discounted Massage Cards to make it even easier to take care of yourself. See below for information about Massage Cards. Commit to regular massage for your health and well-being, your body will thank you for it!

Our wonderful massage therapists are available by appointment 7 days a week.

Wellness Massage

Great for muscle aches, stress relief, and relaxation

Relax with this delightful combination of Swedish, Myofascial Release, and Deep Tissue techniques. Flowing strokes help relax muscles and calm the nervous system, while techniques such as gentle squeezing, compression, and tapping target specific muscles. A Wellness Massage is a wonderful way to reduce stress and release deeply-held muscle patterns. This therapeutic style of massage can also be a highly effective form of body maintenance for athletes.

Pregnancy and Postpartum Massage

Perfect for the mothering year

Nurture your changing body throughout pregnancy and beyond. Prenatal, labor, and postpartum massage techniques help to relieve soreness in the back, neck and shoulders; reduce pain and labor time; improve recovery time; and reduce connective tissue damage after birth. For effective treatment, we recommend a 60 or 90 min session. Celebrate your pregnancy by taking time for yourself. A massage or massage card makes a wonderful baby shower gift!

Thai Massage

Yoga meets Massage

Achieve balance and well-being with this ancient healing therapy. Thai Massage is performed with the client fully clothed on a table or on a comfortable floor mat. Using a combination of compression and passive stretching techniques along with rocking and gentle pulling, the therapist decompresses joints and lengthens constricted tissue. Some of the many benefits include reduction of pain and swelling, greater flexibility, stress relief, and a boost of the immune system.

Shiatsu

Unique and integrative bodywork

Rejuvenate and restore by experiencing this "healing with hands" ancient therapy that combines traditional pressure point theory and meridian diagnostics with deep compression and expansive stretching. A Shiatsu session will help adjust the receiver's physical structure and its natural inner energies. Whether it becomes a deep or gentle treatment, the benefits are numerous. Shiatsu is performed with the client wearing loose clothing (including socks) and lying on a futon floor mat. Props and pillows are used to ensure client comfort.
