Welcome to Minerva Massage & Wellness! We are committed to providing premier massage therapy services designed to help our clients achieve relaxation and natural wellness. Our experienced and caring team of professionals will work with you to develop the best customized treatment plan to meet your individual needs.

Deep Tissue Massage

A Deep Tissue Massage is a massage therapy technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It is designed to release chronic muscle tension and adhesions, increase circulation, and reduce pain. Our experienced massage therapists use a combination of techniques to work deep into the muscles, helping to restore balance and promote relaxation. Each session is tailored to the individual, so you can feel confident that your needs will be met.

Relaxation

Relaxation massage is focused on relaxing, nurturing, and calming the body. This massage can be medium to light pressure and is focusing more on mentally distressing and relaxation rather than physically getting to the root of the problem. This is a calm and relaxing treatment, with added heat and essential oils this an amazing experience. This type of massage is good for stress reduction, blood circulation, lymph circulation, prenatal tension release, muscle tension, insomnia, anxiety, depression and pain relief.

RAPID NeuroFacial Reset Technique

RAPID is a short treatment done fully clothed. We target joints, bones and ligaments to reduce pain and increase the range of motion of the joint which has a positive effect on the joint and surrounding tissue. It is a very intense treatment with rapid results.

RAPID is a method of hands on neuro-fascial “reset” stimulating the deepest fascia of the periosteum. The periosteal fascia is the richest source of sensory free nerve endings in the body, richer than the eyes, ears, nose or skin. Stimulating the neurobiological system this way allows access to nearly one thousand times more sensory receptors than massaging muscle alone. By accessing the neurobiological system as such therapists are able to affect both the central and autonomic nervous systems to reduce tissue tone and increase intercellular tissue fluids, this in turn melts adhesion and tissue tension. Affecting the autonomic nervous system this way also has a global effect on the body by turning down the sympathetic nervous system. Most importantly therapeutic intervention to these free nerve endings is known to produce a chemical cascade in the tissues which dramatically reduces pain. In addition to the periosteum we also focus our work on the aponeurosis, nerve sheaths, tendons, joint capsules and ligaments as these tissues are also highly neurological. RAPID addresses dysfunctional nerve endings to reduce tissue tension and pain and place the body in a relaxed state.
 

NUAD BO-RARN (Northern Style Thai Massage)

Traditional Thai massage (Nuad Bo Rarn) is a rhythmical series of movements including acupressure, massage, yoga-like stretches and contains elements of reflexology.  It can help improve mobility, increase energy flow, calm the mind and alleviates muscle tension.  This results in an energetic opening of the body, leaving the client feeling deeply relaxed and energized at the same time. Thai massage is carried out through loose comfortable clothing, performed on a Thai mat on the floor, lasts approximately 90 minutes and is suitable for most people of all ages, irrespective of their level of flexibility.

Temporal Mandibular Joint Massage

TMJ dysfunction is a condition that occurs when the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) that connects the upper and lower jaw is misaligned or stressed. The cause of TMJ syndrome requires a careful analysis of the muscles within the jaw, face, neck and shoulders. Once the muscular imbalances have been determined, there are a multitude of TMJ treatment options available. Our TMJ Certified Massage Therapists offer TMJ exercises, external and inter oral muscular work along with neck and shoulder work to address all muscular problems associated with TMJ.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal massage is a gentle, therapeutic massage specifically tailored to the needs of expectant mothers. It helps to reduce stress, ease muscle tension, and promote relaxation for both mother and baby. Our experienced and knowledgeable massage therapists are available to provide a safe, nurturing, and comforting prenatal massage.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage is a delicate form of massage that stimulates the body's lymphatic system, improving metabolism, helping the body to eliminate  waste and toxins and providing a boost to the immune system.
The lymphatic system is responsible for helping fluid and waste leave the body and for regulating the immune system.  When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, fluid builds up and stagnates, causing the entire system to become toxic, making us feel sluggish and more susceptible to viral or contagious diseases. Lymphatic drainage massage utilizes very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes and is usually carried out through the body excretion process. By stimulating the lymphatic system using these techniques, it works more efficiently and in turn boosts the immune system, clears blockages, eliminates toxins, transports nutrients to cells and increases the metabolism.

Access Consciousness Bars®

Access Bars® are 32 points on your head which, when gently touched, effortlessly and easily release anything that doesn’t allow you to receive. These points contain all the thoughts, ideas, beliefs, emotions, and considerations you have stored in any lifetime. This is a possibility for you to let go of everything! This is an incredibly nurturing and relaxing process, undoing limitation in all aspects of your life that you are willing to change!

During a session:

The client lays on a massage table fully clothed and comfortable. Using various hand positions, the practitioner places her hands on and around the head reaching all 32 bars points. In this manner, the energy flows from the practitioner’s hands to the client and will flow directly to the areas. Pressing these point has the ability to release unwanted ideas, beliefs and anything that needs to be let go.

Cupping

Cupping therapy is an ancient therapy that has been used for centuries to provide relief from pain and other ailments. It involves applying cups to the skin, which create a vacuum seal that draws the skin into the cup. This helps to stimulate the body's natural healing process. Cupping can help to reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and promote relaxation. Cupping helps to treat pain, digestive issues, respiratory problems, and even fatigue. 

 

Reiki

Reiki is an energy healing practice that helps guide energy throughout your body to clear blocked and affected areas. It balances and aligns your chakras or energy centers. Reiki is a gentle, non-invasive therapy for stress reduction and relaxation. It works on getting to the energetic root of the problem.  Reiki promotes healing on all levels—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.  Reiki is spiritually guided life force energy. It is a very gentle, yet powerful, loving energy.

 

What is a Reiki Session Like?
During a session, Reiki (Usui/Tibetan, Karuna) is combined with Crystal Therapy.  The client lays on a massage table fully clothed.  Using various hand positions, the practitioner places her hands on or above the client’s body.  In this manner, the Reiki flows from the practitioner’s hands to the client and will flow directly to the areas of the body needing it. Crystals and gemstones are placed on and/or around the client to deepen the treatment.  Reiki and crystal healing work wonderfully together and enhance the experience.
