Combining the best of Oriental Acupressure and massage techniques, Auc-Sports Massage benefits include increased circulation and energy levels, decreased muscle tension, improved organ function and wellness levels, and an overall sense of wellbeing.

Our Principal Therapist, Ila Barlean, has designed our Acu-Sports Massage Therapy to be a special blend of several massage techniques, as well as a combination of traditional healing modalities and intuition. The end result is a massage experience that is unique – not just a relaxing massage, but one that will improve your energy levels, organ function, and your overall sense of wellbeing. Our Acu-Sports Massage was designed inside of the Tao of Healing Art and the ancient practices of Tui-Na healing which incorporated specific massage techniques, acupressure, and qi energy work to remove abnormality from the patient’s body and restore balance to the flow of qi through the body.

Acu-Sports Massage is designed for active adults who enjoy being fit and are continually challenging their limits. You will find that your athletic performance will be enhanced noticeably by giving yourself the gift of our Acu-Sports Massage on a regular basis. Tell us what your fitness goals and challenges are and we will tailor your massage experience to help support your body in achieving those goals and give you the possibility of optimal wellness and performance. If you are “pushing through” chronic pain to reach your goals, then you will certainly benefit from Acu-Sports massage, because – although many times pain does come with pushing your limits, for example, muscle soreness from an extra-intense workout – chronic pain is not normal and does not need to be simply endured. Chronic pain can be very effectively addressed through regular Acu-Sports massage treatments that will help your body heal itself, optimize your flow of qi, and be tuned to deliver your personal best performance. And if you choose, we can also help you with optimizing your workout and design in exercises that will support your body in reaching your goals. Also, since you probably already know that nutrition is another important aspect of optimal physical performance, our staff can assist you with evaluating your current nutritional practices and offer our advice on modifications or enhancements you can make in your nutritional choices that will bring you to new levels of energy and performance.

In Meridian Line Massage, the key to Acu-Sports Massage, the focuses is on moving energy (qi) and blood flow along the body’s twelve major meridian lines to restore the patient to optimal health. Using traditional massage techniques combined with energy healing, the therapist works to direct the body’s qi along the meridians to relax the body, rebalance the meridians, and reestablish the body’s natural vitality.

Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is used to relieve severe tension in muscles, connective tissues, and the fascia, and focuses on muscles that are located below the surface of the top muscles.

Our Cupping Therapy includes:

In Cupping Therapy, specialized “cups” with 1 to 3 inch diameter openings are used to create a lower-pressure areas when applied to specific points on the patient’s skin. The suction effect created by the cups increases blood flow to the cupped area. Cupping has been used as a healing method for thousands of years across Asia and the Middle East.

Cupping therapy has been used for hundreds of generations in non-Western healing practices to increase local circulation, decrease pain, and assist with decongesting toxic tissues. Depending on the level of suction used and the patient’s own skin, cupping therapy may leave temporary red rings or round bruises on the skin treated.
