Recognized by UNESCO as part of humanity’s intangible cultural heritage, Thai Yoga (Thai massage) is an ancient healing system. It incorporates ayurvedic principles, acupressure, and assisted yoga postures to promote holistic health of the mind, body, and spirit.
Thai Yoga uses no oils or lotions. The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat on the floor. The body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked. The legs and feet of the giver may be used to position the body or limbs of the recipient. In other positions, the hands fix the body, while the feet do the massaging.
This is the classic western massage. The treatment promotes relaxation by releasing muscle tension and has the potential to reduce pain and improve function. It includes soothing strokes, rhythmic percussion, and deep compressive movements. Done on a massage table with oils, lotions, or dry.
Deep Tissue Therapy
Firm pressure and slow strokes are used to reach deep layers of muscle and fascia. A treatment for aches, pains, and chronically contracted areas. ‘Knots’ (muscle adhesions) are stiff bands of tissue that can disrupt circulation, cause pain, limit range of motion, and cause inflammation.
The aim of deep tissue therapy is to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle adhesions. It is very common to feel sore for a day or two after a deep tissue massage. This treatment may cause bruising.
I came for a massage to work out some FHL pain and tight calves. Shane was very thoughtful and thorough with assessing... what my needs were. He was professional and made sure that the pressure was appropriate. After the massage he also talked about strategies to prevent my FHL from flaring up. My FHL felt much better the next day and would definitely recommend!read more

Shane does a fantastic job every time I see him. He always takes time to really understand what needs work during the... appointment--whether it's work on tight shoulders from being hunched at the computer all day or just a mental escape from daily anxieties. His services have helped my mental health as much as (maybe more than) they've helped me physically. I cannot recommend his services more!read more
Shane does an amazing job giving my massage… At the start, we go over the places I feel are tight and he makes them... feel better, but he always finds muscles that I don’t even realize are tight until he is working on them. He is excellent working on my shoulders and neck and his massage always leaves me feeling better than when I arrived. He is very concerned about making sure that he’s using the right amount of pressure as well as being concerned that the massage is meeting my needs. Shane is a consummate and skilled professional and I am grateful to have found him as my massage therapist.read more

He is thorough in his approach during the session and listens intently regarding problem areas, making sure he meets your needs. He regularly checks in on his pressure to ensure comfort and need. He is very professional and well spoken, very knowledgable about the body and muscle groups. He takes time to bring positivity in to the room which allows for total relaxation during the session. The office space is private and the location is convenient. I will certainly be back!read more
