Massage therapy and craniosacral therapy are individually effective, but together they complement each other and are powerfully restorative. Massage relaxes, improves circulation, blood flow, flexibility, range of motion, and works with soft tissue, while Craniosacral balances the nervous system – it's like having a massage from the inside out.
Massage therapy helps you relax, re-align and rejuvenate. It fosters an overall feeling of relaxation and well being. Restorative Massage on the Hill offers a unique combination of massage styles that are tailored to your specific needs, including Deep Tissue, Thai, Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release Technique, Reflexology and Craniosacral Therapy.
Prenatal Massage Therapy
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, constipation, indigestion, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling). We utilize a comfortable, secure side-lying position. Mothers are completely supported by pillows, aligning the body so that blood and lymph circulation are maximized. Gentle Swedish, deep tissue in the gluteal area, range of motion and gentle stretching, abdominal massage, acupressure, reflexology techniques, as well as craniosacral therapy are integrated into the treatment.
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy
Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy is a gentle form of bodywork that helps to release tension held deep within the nervous system so that the rest of the body can relax and start to heal from the inside out.
