Descriptions of treatment/ therapy:

Life Source Therapies Therapeutic Massage-
The desire at Life Source Therapies is to offer unique treatment sessions to each client; like having a personal trainer. Each session can look similar or very different depending on what your body needs at that moment and how it responds to previous treatment sessions. Clients may have the same type of therapy if that is what works, or there might be a a rotation of various treatments for optimum results. In addition to this type of therapy other aspects of the client’s whole being may be addressed. Other areas that may be addressed are emotional, spiritual, and other physical aspects such as fitness or nutrition. In any instance these other areas are brought to light, Life Source Therapies will refer clients to trained professionals that can better meet their needs. The main goal is for your body to function the best possible so you can live life abundantly!

Aromatherapy Massage –
Specifically diagnosed essential oils are massaged into your skin. This custom treatment can calm, revitalize and heal while it improves circulation and releases toxins.

Carpal Tunnel Release Massage-
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a painful disorder caused by compression of a nerve in the carpal tunnel, which is a nerve passageway found in the wrist. Also known as Repetitive Strain Injury or Repetitive Stress Injury (RSI), CTS interferes with the use of the hand and the wrist. Studies have shown that Carpal Tunnel Release Massage has a higher cure rate than surgery.

Deep Tissue Massage –
Deep Tissue is a method focusing on aligning the deep layers of muscle and connective tissue through kneading and applying a slow, intense pressure. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down an adhesion, a scar-like tissue, which has formed in muscles and restricts movement or cuts off good circulation to an area. Deep tissue massage seeks to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist uses direct deep pressure which can cause temporary discomfort. If the discomfort level becomes more than you desire please indicate this to your therapist.

Energy-
Energy healing is often discussed as a new, somewhat unexplainable therapy. The truth is, energy work is effective bodywork that is as ancient as healing itself. Energy work is a valuable ally to good health — whether as preventive maintenance, a holistic approach to addressing imbalance and disease, or as a complement to allopathic medical care. No one method is better than any other method. To find what works best for you, explore. See what approach holds the greatest affinity for you. Discover what your body/mind/spirit responds to and discover the health that awaits within. * There are many types of energy work. There will be an article in the Resource section soon that explains these more in detail.

Hot Healing Stone Massage –
Experience the ultimate feeling of stress and muscle tension melting away with a hot stone therapy massage. Heated stones are applied to specific points on the spine to enhance and improve energy flow. Hot stone therapy massage combines warm stones with a relaxing massage to aide in easing sore and tense muscles, relieving pain from injuries, and helps with relaxation.

Lymphatic System Massage/ Manual Lymph Drainage-
The lymphatic system is a vital bodily defense against infection and disease. Lymphatic drainage massage is one of the best things you can do to help your body help itself. Lymphatic massage, also called lymphatic drainage or manual lymph drainage, is a technique developed in Germany for treatment of lymphedema, an accumulation of fluid that can occur after lymph nodes are removed during surgery, most often a mastectomy for breast cancer.
A lymphatic massage session starts with light massage on the surface of the skin of the neck. The therapist gently rubs, strokes, taps or pushes the skin in directions that follow the structure of the lymphatic system so that accumulated lymph fluid can drain through proper channels. Lymphatic drainage is very gentle; it is not painful and doesn’t have a stimulating effect.

Prenatal Massage –
Also known as a Pregnancy Massage, Prenatal Massage achieves the same goals as a regular massage. It aims to relax and aide in easing sore or tense muscles. However, a prenatal massage is tailored to specifically fit the needs of a pregnant woman. Constant body changes during pregnancy create some discomforts. A prenatal massage can help relieve discomforts, including low back pain.
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.
As with any therapeutic approach to pregnancy wellness, women should discuss massage with their prenatal care provider. The best way to address the risks of prenatal massage is to be informed and to work together with knowledgeable professionals.
Many professionals consider the best position for a pregnant woman during massage is side-lying
Women with the following conditions should speak with a health care provider prior to receiving a massage:
• High risk pregnancy
• Pregnancy induced hypertension (PIH)
• Preeclampsia
• Previous pre-term labor
• Experiencing severe swelling, high blood pressure, or sudden, severe headaches
• Recent birth
Is prenatal massage safe throughout the entire pregnancy? Women can begin massage therapy at any point in their pregnancy – during the first, second, or third trimester. The decision should always be discussed with your healthcare provider.

Reflexology-
Experience Reflexology: the ancient Chinese art of healing. Zones of feet and hands are manipulated and massaged to relax the entire body, eliminate toxins and enhance internal organ functions. Reflexology is commonly believed to help release tension, pain and types of illnesses.

Swedish Massage/ Relaxation-
Swedish massage is the most common form of massage in the US. It is a relaxing massage that utilizes long strokes, kneading, and deep circular movements. Swedish massage is generally a full body massage, but can be limited to focused areas. Studies have found that even a single session of Swedish massage can lead to improved function of the body’s immune function and hormonal response.
