Massage therapy is a natural method for healing and restoring the body. Our massage treatments are based in the most comprehensive form of massage called Myomassology. Myomassolgy is a combination of various ancient and modern massage techniques to ease, relax and strengthen your muscles and joints to release blockages, stress and tension held within the body at the myofascial level. Myomassology combines modalities such as Swedish massage, Deep Tissue, Shiatsu, Accupressure, Reflexology, Aromatherapy, Reiki, and CranioSacral Therapy. After discussing your current needs and imbalances, your massage will be customized to your needs, whether you would be best-served with massage focused in one area of the body, whole-body massage, or a specialized form of massage.
We are pleased to offer massage therapies at our Ann Arbor day spa from veteran therapist Trish Newman, CMT.
