Deep tissue massage therapy is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or “knots”on a deeper level.
Our relaxation massage incorporates long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing. A pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful. An effective treatment that is designed to soothe and relax you.
Pregnancy or Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy.

Acupressure is an ancient healing therapy developed over 5,000 years ago as an important aspect of Asian, especially Chinese, medicine.

Body Restoration’s professional massage therapists practice various massage techniques proven to relieve everyday stress in the mind and drive pain out of the body. Many of our previous clients said they experienced reduced discomfort and muscle spasm even after their first session.
The hands-on treatment you can expect includes manipulation of the soft tissue structures of your body (muscle, skin and connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, and membranes). Our registered massage therapists combine kneading, pressure, and percussion of the muscles with the active and passive movement of the joints to relieve your tension and restore balance and posture.
Studies show that the body is able to self-heal but triggers like free-radicals, stress and pain block its capability to rehabilitate. So, you will need an alternative or complementary approach to get that optimum wellness and there’s nothing safer and more effective than a massage.
