What We Do!

WW is a Massage Therapy Clinic that focuses on whole-body wellness and recovery. We are very skilled and highly educated practitioners who always put the patient first. We listen to you, we educate you, and develop a treatment plan together that will generate the best outcomes to reach your goals. We also love to work with other members of your healthcare team. 

Preventative Healthcare - This Is Who We Are! We focus on helping you maintain your best self, body and mind. The best healthcare is doing whatever you can to prevent dis-ease from sinking in, and massage therapy is one of the best ways to ensure your body is able to bend under stress and not break. While we may not be able to literally prevent your bones and ligaments from breaking, we can help you be in your optimal state when accidents happen. When your body and mind align and function at their peak abilities, you'll find you're sick less often and recover faster from injury. 

Infrared Light and Negative Ion Therapies - Far infrared rays are part of the electromagnetic light spectrum and are close to the light frequency of natural sunlight.  However, far infrared does not contain any of sunlight’s harmful UV/UVB radiation. The beneficial properties of far infrared light have received particular attention from the scientific community in recent years. However, NASA first conducted research on this part of the light spectrum decades ago. What are negative ions? An ion is a particle containing an electrical charge. An ion with a negative electrical charge is called a negative ion, which is now considered an integral part of healthy cellular function.

Two of our three treatment rooms at WW are outfitted with Amethyst BioMats, which deliver far infrared light and negative ions during your session. We'll have a third BioMat coming soon!

Pain Management - We are no strangers to treating pain. We see many post-op patients who are committed to a strong rehab program as well as people who are prepping for surgery. Chronic pain is another daily battle we can help you with. There are many more options than just pills and surgery to abate chronic pain, manual bodywork and energetic balancing are often the key to relieving most pains.  

Stress Relief - Stress is the number one killer in my book. Extended periods of stress wreaks havoc on not only your mind but also your physical body. It slows the natural healing process, increases blood pressure, perpetuates disease, and is massively taxing on your mental compacity. Massage therapy, energy work, and just breathing deeply can immediately lower your stress hormones and start bringing your body back into homeostasis. 

Injury Rehab - Stiff after your big hike? Rolled an ankle? Sprained a wrist? We've got your back! When it comes to injuries, your body knows best and can heal itself quite well when given the chance. The key phrase here is "when given the chance!" REST is the most important thing for an injury, as well as making sure you're supported and put back into alignment after a crash. We can assist your body with its self-healing abilities by encouraging better blood and nerve flow, softening fascial restrictions, and using positional release techniques to improve joint alignment. 

Pre/Post Natal Support - Expecting and new moms can use all the support they can get throughout the childbearing process. Massage therapy during pregnancy is a great way to decrease stress, relieve bodily discomfort, and increase circulation, keeping you and your little nugget happy and healthy. We have special pregnancy bolsters that support our expecting mothers while in the face-down position and fluffy pillows that support your body in the side-lying position if necessary.

*Abby is our resident prenatal massage expert, so we encourage mammas-to-be to book with her. 

Reiki Energy Healing - Reiki is a holistic therapy that involves a series of hand placements on a fully clothed client to move energy. In Japanese, Reiki means universal life force energy; this practice aims to nurture the body's inherent ability to heal. Reiki can be used to address physical and emotional imbalances. The impact of this subtle treatment varies, but it's common to feel deep relaxation and a sense of lightness afterwards.

*Jana is our Reiki expert at WW and would love to share her gifts with you.

What to Expect

Please arrive a few minutes early so you're not rushing into your session. You will be prompted to fill out a health intake form when you book online, and will be texted or emailed the form if you call in for an appointment. Please fill out this form Before arrival. Kids under 16 will need a guardian to sign their intake form giving consent.

 

During your massage, you will be covered at all times, expect for the area that is currently being worked. While we recommend undressing completely, you are welcome to wear your undergarments if you prefer, but keep in mind some oils may stain your garments.

Pain is entirely subjective.  If the pressure is too much for you, then it's too much... “No pain, No gain” is a big misconception in this world. In fact, if your nervous system views our touch as a threat, it will react negatively by tightening your muscles and releasing cortisol which will decrease the effectiveness of your therapy.

So speak up if you're ever uncomfortable! Otherwise, just breathe, relax, and let your body melt into the table.
