E. I. Massage Clinic
An Effectively Innovative Massage Experience

Our Services

Medical Massage vs. Relaxation Massage

At E. I. Massage Clinic we tend to spend most of our time with clients focusing on and specializing in medical massages. Clients often choose medical massage for specific areas of concern such as cervical/back pain, chronically tight muscles, those suffering with structural/functional anatomical disfunctions, etc. These massages may or may not cover the entire body, but rather focus on the specific areas of pain and discomfort. Types of massage used during a medical massage could be any combination of Swedish, myofascial release, deep tissue, trigger point, and MET (Muscle Energy Technique). 
Understanding that life can be hectic, E. I. Massage Clinic provides relaxation massage because some people need a stress reducing massage to ease the tension and anxiety brought about by today's world. During our relaxation massage we tend to focus on the techniques found in traditional Swedish massage while sprinkling in some bits and pieces of craniosacral work as well. This type of massage is usually full body and the time is evenly divided around the body.


??? What Length of Treatment is Best for Your Needs ???

From the way we look, to the way we walk, to the way we brush our teeth, every single one of us is a distinctive individual. Based on this concept, E. I. Massage Clinic is proud to offer three different lengths of treatments in order to treat everyone as an individual and provide an 'effectively innovative' massage experience based on your wants and needs.
30 Minute Treatment
This is typically focused on an area of complaint and does not include the whole body. This is a perfect appointment for you if you are limited on time or don’t want full body work.  Since many of us store tension in our upper back and neck, this a typical complaint and focus for a 30 minute session. This is also a good length of time to focus on shoulder complaints and work on the tight muscles of the chest, neck and upper back to help free the shoulder joint.
60 Minute Treatment
A 60 minute session allows enough time for full body work or more specific work on more than one area of the body.  A typical full body work session would involve about 15 minutes on the face, scalp, and cervical area, 15 minutes on the arms and shoulders, 15 minutes on the feet, legs and glutes, and 15 minutes on back and neck area. This is an approximate time frame and varies from appointment to appointment depending on where you may have complaints that need focus work.
90 Minute Treatment
90 minute massage is very much like the 60 minute session accept it allows a little extra time for each area.  This is a great for you when you feel like that last 60 minute massage “was just not long enough" or you need extra work with more than one area of concern. Many people enjoy this length of massage as it allows enough time to slow down, relax and benefit from the therapeutic effects of massage therapy.

Different Massage Modalities and Descriptions


Myofascial Release

Craniosacral Therapy

This is the most popular form of massage used in North America. Often a lotion or oil is used to reduce skin friction. The therapist uses a combination of stroking, kneading, and joint movements to relax muscles. This treatment improves blood flow which increases muscle nutrition and flushes waste products from the muscles. This technique targets ongoing muscle tension providing stress and pain relief.
A gentle application of consistent pressure is applied into the fascial restrictions. Trauma, poor posture, or inflammation can create a binding down effect on the fascia which can lead to excessive pressure on nerves, muscles, blood vessels, bony structures and/or organs. This results in increased flexibility, range of motion and pain relief. Hard edged tools known as 'Gua Sha' tools are also often utilized during this technique.
A gentle hands-on method that allows the therapist to tune into the craniosacral rhythm. Craniosacral therapy focuses on the membranes and the fluid that surround, protect, and nourish the brain and spinal cord. Also, it can enhance the body's resistance to disease and help alleviate many illnesses, pain, and dysfunction.   

Trigger Point

Muscle Energy Technique (MET)

Deep Tissue

Trigger points are small nodules that form in muscles causing pain that can extend far from where they begin. When detected, the therapist applies direct momentary pressure to a trigger point causing its release. This, in turn, alleviates muscle spasms and improves circulation. During the massage, the therapist may return several times to a stubborn trigger point to elicit its release. Trigger point therapy is usually used in combination with Swedish massage and deep tissue massage rather than as a treatment in and of itself.
MET technique involves the client either stretch or contract a muscle against resistance from the therapist, followed by complete relaxation of the muscle, and completed by stretching of the muscle by the therapist. This technique is usually repeated 3-5 times increasing the range of motion for the muscle each time. MET can be used to treat such issues as tight muscles, low back pain, pelvic imbalance, limited range of motion, headaches caused by tight neck muscles, and more. 
Deep tissue massage aims to relieve tension in the deep layers of tissue within the body. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial. It is a highly effective when releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.  Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment and water is an absolute necessity afterwards in order to flush out waste and  toxins released into the body.
