massage programs

Our massage therapists are certified to provide a relaxing and transformative experience. We feel relaxation is just as important to your wellness program as active exercise and healthy eating plans. All of our programs will be customized to your unique goals, however below are a few examples of what we can provide:

Swedish Massage:
Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage. Usually the client is positioned laying on the table. The goal is relaxing the entire body and this is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Additional techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Lotion is often used to reduce friction and stimulate the skin.

Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

Chair Massage:
As a chair massage client, you can use one of our professional massage chairs, or the chair of your choosing. Chair massage is typically performed over clothing and reduces aches and pains, decreases stress and anxiety and improves circulation sharpening mental acuity. Your body will be propped and positioned to maximize comfort and relaxation.

For your home environment:
Some clients are not able to tolerate position transitions when lying down or have pain or discomfort when doing so. A chair massage places you in a comfortable position for you to relax and enjoy the benefits of traditional massage.

For your work environment:
The benefits of bringing Acrovita massage therapists to your office are broad and substantive, benefits that can make a real and lasting impact in your working environment. Whether you want to reward employees for that final push on the last big project or say thank you for all their hard work, chair massage is an unique way to express your gratitude. Chair massages can be used as incentives or awards as well as gifts to valuable clients. Massage in the office boosts office morale, increases and enhances productivity and alleviates stress. Acrovita massage therapists provide chair massage in a variety of corporate, workplace, event and marketing venues.

Prenatal Massage:
Studies indicate that massage therapy performed during pregnancy can reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Massage therapy addresses different needs through varying techniques which aim to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation through mild pressure applied to the muscle groups of the body. Swedish Massage is the recommended prenatal massage method during pregnancy because it addresses many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes brought on by hormone shifts during pregnancy. Let Acrovita massage therapists help reduce swelling, improve nerve pain, and restore hormonal balance. A doctor's consent is required.
