Reflexology is a non-invasive, manual method of stimulating reflexes in the feet, hands, or ears that correspond to every part, gland, and organ of the body. This stimulation effectively reduces stress and tension in the body. It is an effective therapy by itself or it  can prepare the client for a more effective rehabilitative massage.

A revolutionary form of massage therapy at MassageWORKS is Water Immersion Massage. This form of rehabillitation, invented and patented by Dave, allows you to receive a massage while immersed in hot water. The hot water helps soften the fascia and the hydraulic action of the water helps release entrapped nerves.

Our Rehabilitative Massage therapists use a combination of modalities  to best meet the needs of the client. Modalities include but are not limited to deep tissue, sports, neuromuscular, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, active release, shiatsu, reflexology, and cupping.


They view the body as a whole and not only focus on the muscles that are limited or in pain, but also the opposing or compensating muscles that may be having an impact on recovery.
