Integrative Bodywork Sessions
While many massage venues and spa’s will delineate sessions as either “Swedish” or “Deep Tissue” and provide a service using only one technique, at Emerge, we recognize that optimal wellness is achieved by addressing the whole person in a multi-dimensional way! We have seen that the best approach is through the integration of various modalities, merged to meet the client’s individual needs & desires.

Chose your form of bliss!
In addition, each session includes your choice of essential oil to enhance your experience:
Emerge Therapeutic Sessions target the cause of discomfort by accessing the body’s connective tissues, improving structural alignment, enhancing flexibility, and increasing range of motion.
Therapeutic sessions begin with a postural assessment. Often times, areas of discomfort are simply symptoms of structural imbalances or holding patterns in other areas of the body. From there, your therapist will incorporate deep stretching, sustained connective tissue strokes, specific neuromuscular and myofascial techniques & pain relieving essential oils in a dynamic hands-on approach.
By determining the root of discomfort, Emerge Therapeutics sessions alleviate symptoms with lasting results.
Relieve pain, restore mobility & regain a sense of complete vitality.
To prevent this from happening (or undo chronic holding patterns to restore optimal vitality), it is imperative to take a proactive and consistent treatment approach. By increasing session frequency, the body does not have an opportunity to go back to patterns of discomfort. Eventually, it begins adjust to a new state of optimal alignment that can be maintained with a combination of less frequent treatment & a self care regimen.
This mini-bodywork session is specifically designed for individuals working with acute or chronic injuries that need treatment frequency with affordability. Emerge RX is a combination of approximately 15 minutes of either thermotherapy (heat) or cryotherapy (cold) with therapeutic grade essential oils on the area of pain AND 15 minutes of hands on manipulation (MFR, scraping, cupping, kineso-taping etc) to break up scar tissue, enhance mobility, and soften areas of restriction.
While massage therapists cannot take insurance, Emerge RX reduces the typical session rate to the equivalent of an average co-pay. Recommended frequency is 2-3x per week in conjunction with Emerge Therapeutic Sessions!
Please Note: This session cannot be booked as a stand alone appointment for new clients, but may be recommended by a therapist after a full 60 minute therapeutic assessment!
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
Prenatal sessions share many of the goals of regular massage: to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation, increase mobility, and just make you feel good. Specifically targeting areas of extra “intensity”, like the low back, this treatment is great for an expectant or new mother feel some relief in the midst of their changing bodies.
Special massage sessions props are available for pregnant women to lay on their backs, sides, and even their bellies safely with our special pregnancy massage cushions.
At Emerge, our “Lazy Yoga” sessions combine traditional Thai Yoga Massage with facilitated stretching for ultimate release!
Thai massage includes a sophisticated sequence of compression, acupressure, rocking & gentle pulling along energy lines during assisted yoga postures. Aside from opening up your body’s energy system, these sessions decompresses joints and lengthen constricted tissue.
Furthermore, for individuals with low back tension and chronic muscle tightness, modalities including proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF), passive + myofascial stretching & active release technique (ART) will be integrated to facilitate deeper stretching with lasting effects!
This integrated approach stimulates the body’s natural healing ability by unblocking the flow of energy providing a complete release of the body, mind & soul.
These sessions are performed fully clothed on a padded mat on the floor. Thai massage is suitable for all ages and abilities, and can complement any level of exercise, flexibility, and/or activity. Come in comfortable clothing that you can easily move and stretch in. No oils or lotions are used.
While the physical body is often the 1st place we notice in moments of imbalance, true optimal health can only be experienced when the whole being is addressed in a complete & comprehensive fashion. Human nature urges us to treat “symptoms,” looking for a quick fix to our aches, pains & other discomforts. However, addressing the mind & subtle energy is often the most lasting approach to facilitate freedom in our bodies, creating an experience of balance and ease.
Furthermore, for individuals in chronic pain that are sensitive to physical touch, integrative energy sessions are an excellent way to restore balance, boost immunity, relieve pain, promote relaxation, release blocked emotions & amplify personal energy in a gentle and non invasive way.
Partitioner will fuse various energetic modalities (polarity, reiki, etc.) to facilitate an sense of mind*body integration & healing for the client.
