Health and Wellness
Being involved in a car accident can be a very traumatic experience. The initial shock of the crash can mask injuries you may not feel for a few days. Pain from the accident can last weeks and even months. At Vancouver Massage is here to help you and has hundreds of hours of experience working with these types of pain.
At Vancouver Massage tables are all equipped with BioMat, another layer to the healing process we utilize. As soon as your skin touches the BioMat, a comforting warmth begins to penetrate your body, allowing a deeper and more beneficial massage. The BioMat helps with pain, stiffness, and many other health issues and is used in every massage we perform.
Essential Oils/Zyto Scan Compass
Even though the treatment is centuries old, essential oils are still used widely today. There are several benefits to using essential oils, including cosmetic, dietary, spiritual, and religious. One of our favorite, and most used, healing modalities, essential oils should be a mainstay in any wellness regimen.
Fascia is a network of connective tissue throughout the entire body. Sometimes, the fascia can become agitated and cause stiffness in the affected area. With the FasciaBlaster, At Vancouver Massage will work the fascia back to its normal state, relieving you of pain and improving flexibility.
Hot Stone Therapy
Once heated, basalt lava rocks can be very helpful with deep soft tissue and muscle aches and pains. The therapy can be incorporated into our massage, providing additional relief from stress and stiffness. Hot stone therapy is ideal for use on lingering pain or ongoing illness and improves circulation and releases toxins from the body.
By increasing the amount of oxygen your body takes in, hyperbaric chambers can speed up the healing process by fighting infections. The chamber becomes pressurized, forcing more oxygen into your lungs, where it can then be dispersed to areas that need the most attention. These chambers are used by all-star athletes and office workers alike.
LED Light Therapy
In the Pacific Northwest, the winter season can bring on Seasonal Affective Disorder, otherwise known as SAD. The sun provides much of the Vitamin D our body needs to function properly, and when the gray days appear for weeks on end, that needed vitamin isn’t readily available. Light therapy boxes mimic natural light, giving your body’s internal rhythms a boost.
Using the time-tested healing strength of heat, the infrared sauna is a safe and efficient way to take care of lingering pain. In addition, these saunas can help lower high blood pressure as well as cholesterol levels, helping keep the heart healthy.
Whole Body Vibration
Whole Body Vibration (WBV) utilizes state-of-the-art equipment that improves circulation, increases muscle strength, increases flexibility and decreases stress, among other health benefits. The rapid vibrations engage 98% of muscle fibers, and is a great low-impact form of exercise that can benefit nearly anyone no matter their current level of fitness.
Of all the things we can do for our body, giving it water might be the most important. This life-giving mixture of hydrogen and oxygen carries nutrients our body needs to cells, helps with digestion, flushes out toxins, and a host of other beneficial features. Without water, there is no life.
