Relaxation/Swedish Massage:

This technique promotes general relaxation and relieves stress and tension by using massage strokes of varying pressure. Presently, This is the type of massage most people think of when they think of massage therapy.

Deep Tissue/Therapeutic Massage:

The goal of this type of massage is to restore muscles to a state of well-being by blending many massage techniques.  Consequently, these techniques may be applied to a specific muscle or group of muscles and are used for conditions like injuries and over-use.

Hot Stone Massage:

By and large, Hot, smooth basalt stones are used for a warm, moist massage. In addition, I apply massage strokes using hot stones to provide a gentle, yet deep muscle release.

Pregnancy or Prenatal Massage:

Massage during pregnancy is appropriate for most women and is particularly recommended for hip and low-back discomfort. During this massage, special pillows and cushions are used for yours and your baby’s comfort. Ask your doctor if massage during your pregnancy is right for you.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy:

A delicately light and healing massage, Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is a hands-on technique designed to activate the lymph system. In fact, the proper functioning of the lymphatic system is important to the body’s ability to detoxify, prevent or decrease swelling and maintain a healthy immune system. The pressure used is very light and a state of relaxation achieved is usually very deep. Some benefits of are decreased fluid retention and swelling, boosts immune system, and eases sore muscles. This is a great treatment to try if you’re fasting or trying a juice cleanse.  It is also helpful when preparing for surgery or post surgery to reduce swelling.

Health Flexible Spending Accounts/Tax Saver Accounts

Many clients successfully submit their massage-therapy expenses to their employer-sponsored health flexible-spending account. Clients pay me upfront for massage services, and I provide a detailed receipt which they submit for reimbursement.

Please check your plan to see if massage therapy is covered and what documentation you need in order to file for reimbursement. For example, some plans require a massage therapy prescription from a doctor and/or a letter stating that massage therapy is “medically necessary.”

Value-Added Services Upon Request:

Oftentimes, additional services may be included at no charge when requested.  While other massage therapists may charge for these services, Foltz Massage does not.  These services include use of topical products such as essential oils, Biofreeze and similar products.  Additionally, tools such as fasciablaster, kinesio tape and electronic point stimulation can be added to your massage.  Please note that use of these products and/or tools will not add additional time to your massage, but will be used in conjunction with the massage time you have reserved.

This therapy focuses on pain relief and bringing balance to your body’s many systems, including muscular, lymphatic, neurological and endocrine. This technique can be included in any of the massage services or can be a stand-alone treatment. This approach is highly effective and employs a lighter touch than traditional massage.
