Types of Massage: Modalities

What are Modalities and why are they important?

Modalities or massage modes or massage techniques are a collection of various approaches that result in different outcomes for different body discomforts.  We use integrative massage therapies that utilize the appropriate technique for the issue at hand.


This approach is important because it results in a unique individualize treatment plan for the client. We combined actively listening to our clients concerns, so that we can work together to implement the best over-all solution for a healthy mind, body and spirit.
