ART® is a highly effective soft tissue treatment that treats specific problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. Conditions are caused by overused muscles that develop adhesions. ART® stretches, separates, and releases these adhered tissues to relieve conditions. Nissa is full body certified and Lis is certified to offer Upper Extremity ART®.
Dynamic cupping using silicone cups offers a unique treatment utilizing a flexible material that uses negative pressure and gently stretches and unwinds fascia without the discomfort of force. Ryan is certified by the International Cupping Therapy Association to provide this service.
Sports Massage is aimed to reduce pain, release tension, improve range of motion, and promote good muscle condition. Pre and post event massages are beneficial to maximize performance and help with recovery. Sports massage can alleviate soreness in the muscles when used immediately after an event. All our therapists provide this treatment.
This treatment uses precise and deep finger pressure as well as slow, measured strokes to alleviate pain and tension in the body. This process can cause some discomfort and soreness. All our therapists provide this service to clients.
Thai bodywork uses stretching and slow, rhythmic compression along the "sen pathways" to unblock energy. The therapist uses many parts of his body - thumbs, palms, elbows, feet and knees - to pull, press, and stretch and loosen joints and relax the client's body on a large mat. Ryan provides this service.
Tui Na (means "pinch and pull") refers to a wide range of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) therapeutic massage and bodywork. The treatment uses a combination of massage, acupressure, oscillation, and other forms of body manipulation to remove blockages that prevent energy from flowing freely. This leads to improved energy balance, and greater health and vitality. Lis provides this treatment.

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualized goals within a therapeutic relationship by a credentialed professional who has completed an approved music therapy program. Music therapists assess emotional well-being, physical health, social functioning, communication abilities, and cognitive skills through musical responses; design music sessions for individuals and groups based on client needs using music improvisation, receptive music listening, song writing, lyric discussion, music and imagery, music performance, and learning through music; participate in interdisciplinary treatment planning, ongoing evaluation, and follow up (American Music Therapy Association, AMTA).
Music therapy is process-oriented rather than performance-based, and individuals actively participate in musical interventions to achieve functional therapeutic outcomes. Individuals do not need to have any prior musical abilities or experience in order to benefit from music therapy. Music is processed in all areas of the brain and has the ability to access and stimulate areas of the brain that may not be accessible through other modalities. Music enhances and optimizes the brain, providing more efficient therapy. Music Therapy is unique in its ability to captivate and maintain attention, and it naturally motivates clients to work on their functional goals, feeling not threatened and motivated!
Neurologic Music Therapy, or NMT, is a therapeutic application of music to cognitive, sensory, and motor dysfunctions that come from the human nervous system. NMT is based within a neuroscience model of music and considers the influence of music on functional changes in nonmusical brain functions and behaviors. NMT techniques are research-based, and like all music therapy techniques, used to achieve functional non-music goals. These set standardized techniques are applied to therapy as Therapeutic Music Interventions which are adaptable to the needs of each client.
