MASSAGE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Our massage therapy services are designed to be relaxing and restorative. Led by Louisa Tomaio, a natural health practitioner with over 15 years of experience in the healthcare field, our highly-trained team offers the following massage therapy modalities to root out pain and tension at its source.

DR SIGNATURE MASSAGE

Our comprehensive, head-to-toe, customizable massage uses our Hit The Spot method and our #7 Perfect Pressure communication system to promote relief and restoration throughout the body.

DEEP RELIEF
HITS THE SPOT

Our unique DR Hit The Spot method uses long gliding strokes, muscle stripping, trigger point and acupressure techniques all centered around seven hot spots known to contribute to common pain patterns.

Deep Tissue Massage

This therapeutic technique focuses on deeper muscle layers to target adhesions and stiffness that builds up due to over, under and improper use of muscles, all leading to reduced circulation.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Hypersensitive areas in tight muscle bands, known as “trigger points,” cause pain at the site and can refer pain to other areas of the body. Releasing these points improves treatment outcomes.

WE FIND YOUR PERFECT PRESSURE

Our #7 Perfect Pressure communication system ensures that you receive the pressure that’s right for you.

ASHIATSU MASSAGE

Known as “barefoot massage” or “Ashi,” this unique form of massage uses gravity to produce one of the most effective and relaxing deep tissue massages on the planet.

DEEP RELIEF HIT THE SPOT ASHIATSU VS PURE ASHI

DR HIT THE SPOT ASHI is an abbreviated, and more specific version of Ashi, which is a spin off of our traditional signature massage.  Most of the DR therapists are trained in this version.  Our Ashi is integrated with traditional massage, meaning your therapist will use Ashi on the back, hips and hamstrings to get DEEPER into those larger muscle groups.  All the other areas like head, neck, hands/feet & the front side of the body will be worked on the traditional way for a more detailed experience on the finer muscle groups.   

VS

PURE ASHI is a full body barefoot massage, executed exclusively using the therapist feet.  This style of ashi requires many hours of  advanced training and talent.  It’s a truly unique and luxurious experience.  Feet have a wider surface area then hands and we can get deeper into the deep muscle layers without being as uncomfortable to the upper layers as thumbs and elbows can tend to be.  Ashiatsu is often called one of the most effective deep tissue massages on the planet.  

Cupping

First developed in Ancient China and popular to this day, “cupping therapy” or “myofascial decompression therapy” is a powerful and effective way to improve healing and increase circulation.

Swedish Massage

Known for its relaxing, long gliding strokes, Swedish massage is the perfect way to de-stress after a difficult week. Pressure can be customized to your liking.
