Harkening back to our roots as a chiropractic and physical therapy provider, Basis has always offered massage therapy because of its many holistic benefits to the body. Not only is massage therapy a deeply relaxing and restorative ritual, but it also comes with an abundance of physiological benefits to improve the overall health and performance of the body.
Enjoy a relaxing and replenishing session, giving your muscles and tissues with what they really need. Our massage therapist will request which areas you’d like to focus on, and with aromatic oils, will deliver a restorative massage through kneading, compression and rhythmic motion.
For the active individual, a sports massage is an excellent way to speed up the muscles natural healing process through targeted massage therapy. Your massage therapist will inquire as to what areas you’d like to focus on, and through targeted compression and massage, will usher in healthful, healing fluids deep into the muscles and tissues.
This ancient massage treatment is nourishing to the body and senses. Using hot stones, your massage therapist will offer you a custom massage treatment, while utilizing warmed, water-weathered stones for added relaxation and penetration deep within the tissues.
We all experience tension, leading to knots, pain or discomfort. A custom deep tissue massage focuses on the “pain” points you’re experiencing throughout the body, focusing on massaging out deep-seeded tightness that has accumulated within the muscles.
Our bodies naturally retain water for different reasons, sometimes due to a high sodium diet, or due to aggravated joints, and even due to a compromised lymph system. Lymphatic massage is the antidote to water retention and inflammation. Your massage therapist will perform a soothing, smoothing massage on the areas of concern, which can include the legs, arms and neck. Each gliding motion pushes fluids closer to the lymph nodules, instigating the body to naturally flush a buildup of fluids and toxins within the body, which you eliminate naturally.
This journey of the senses begins with an introduction to a variety of aromatherapy essential oils. Choosing the blend that suits your emotional state that day, your massage therapist will impart these natural healing notes within your massage session, taking you on a journey that is as nourishing to the body as it is to the mind.
Soothe active or overused muscles during a sports massage or deep tissue massage. These targeted treatments will help to regenerate fatigued or strained muscles, ushering in fresh fluids for enhanced repair.
Massage therapy is excellent for breaking up tension, buildup and scar tissue that may be causing pain or discomfort deep within the tissues of the body. Let our massage therapists release the knots and tension during a specialized massage therapy session.
Our joint system can accumulate wear and tear over time, or be strained due to improper motion. Both can cause subtle stress on the joints, leading to pain and inflammation. Treating the joints during a massage therapy session can help dramatically improve the health of the tissues by ushering in healing fluids, initiating the bodies own ability to repair, while flushing out a buildup of inflammation.
As with joint therapy, massage therapy can dramatically improve the bodies ability to repair itself by manually activating healing fluids to permeate the tissues, helping them repair themselves. This form of natural healing has been used for thousands of years to help repair and restore the body, offering healthier, younger acting tissues throughout the body.
