If you want to zone out and forget the world for a while, this lighter style of therapy is for you! Deeply relaxing and therefore highly meditative, Swedish massage incorporates slow and flowing techniques which are awesome for decreasing stress, aches and pains while improving circulation, sleep, mood and so much more. It is often the basis of all therapeutic massage treatments, used to warm the muscles and connective tissues by applying oil or cream to the body with light to medium pressure.
Deep Tissue Massage
This practice is fantastic for relieving chronic pain and limitations in range of motion. Your massage therapist may use forearms, elbows and/or hands to apply very firm pressure to access deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues. Deep tissue is a great modality for targeting specific conditions such a frozen shoulder, sciatica and injury or surgery recovery.
Please note that deep tissue can be a little uncomfortable sometimes, but it should not hurt! Please stay alert and aware of your body, and speak up to let your therapist know if you ever need adjustments in pressure.

Our studio does not offer insurance billing; HOWEVER, many insurance clients are able to reap the benefits of amazing massage at Breathe and get reimbursed by their insurance companies later. You pay Breathe up front for the service plus a $6 invoicing fee, we create an invoice for you with Superbill, and then you send this information to your insurance company.
Each insurance company operates differently. Sometimes the invoice is not necessary, with a receipt showing proof of payment being enough. Other times, the insurance company requires additional information, such as copies of client charts. Please speak directly with your insurance provider to find out if this option will be a good fit for you. If so, we are happy to create invoices and copies of charts for you as needed. Please give us a heads up at the time of booking your appointment (you can place a note if requesting an appointment online) so that we can prepare an insurance invoice for you. Thank you!
