The Fix

The Fix is ideal for those with chronic pain or injuries. It releases knots, improves flexibility, and enhances posture. This therapeutic technique promotes healing, making it effective for those with chronic pain or seeking intense muscle relief.

When you overdid it at the gym, your garden is demanding more than you bargained for, that pain in your back/shoulder/neck/etc has been there for months (or years) or you just need a more targeted approach to pain, The Fix is for you. 60 minutes is ideal for 1-2 areas of focus, a 90 minute will allow for a full body massage as well as targeted work on the areas that trouble you the most and our 120 minute session is the ultimate in pain relief. Your therapist will determine the best course of action for your treatment and may include some stretching, cupping, scraping and use of the Trigger Point massage gun.

Starting Price: $105

  • RICE vs MEAT

    The debate between RICE and MEAT for injury recovery isn't about diet but methods. RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) was traditional, but MEAT (Movement, Exercise, Analgesia, Treatment) offers a science-based, long-term approach. Each has its place depending on the injury's nature and stage. Combining elements of both methods may be the best approach.

Effective massage is about communication and should never cause more than a "good hurt." If it becomes painful, it's counterproductive. Speak up to ensure a comfortable and effective experience.
