Massage Therapy Q&A

OM Spa Chiropractic & Wellness

What is massage therapy?

Massage therapy relaxes your muscles and helps reduce back pain, but it also improves overall mobility and body function. In treating back pain, Dr. Edmiston applies pressure to the sore or tender area of muscle, also known as the trigger point. Muscles usually get sore from not receiving enough blood flow. Massage increases blood flow and clears out lactic acid build up and other byproducts of normal muscle use.

What massage therapies does Om Spa offer?

Dr. Edmiston offers the following massage options.

  • OM Signature Massage: This is the ultimate experience in therapeutic body care. The Om Signature Massage provides a variety of massage techniques, including deep tissue treatments, which will rebalance the muscles.
    • 50 Minutes $89
    • 80 Minutes $130
    • 110 Minutes $175
  • OM Hot Stone Massage: Heated basalt stones will heal and revitalize your body, even more than the warm hands of your massage therapist. Your muscle tension is released, circulation improved, and joints loosened by the firm pressure, heated strokes, and warming effect of the stones.
    • 50 Minutes $105
    • 80 Minutes $155
  • OM Mothers to Be Prenatal Massage: Prenatal massage offers tension relief for a body that’s undergoing changes in size and balance, to say nothing about the changes to the body’s hormonal chemistry. Prenatal massage can help with back pain, leg pain, and foot pain that can result from these changes. Dr. Edmiston recommends prenatal massages begin only after the end of the first trimester.
    • 50 Minutes $99

  • Chinese Cupping Massage: A traditional eastern massage includes either resting cups in one spot or dragging them along the skin. Through suction, the skin is gently drawn upward into the small cup. This increases blood flow in the targeted area, which helps loosen scar tissue, tightened facial tissue, and stagnant energy.
    • 30 Minutes $55
    • 50 Minutes $105
    • 80 Minutes $155
  • OM Celebration for Two: Om Spa offers a couples room for those looking to share their calming massage therapy experience. Following their massage, many couples choose to continue their treatment with detoxification in the infrared sauna.
    • 50 Minutes $180
    • 80 Minutes $260
  • OM Massage Tour: Experience all the types of massage therapy offered at Om Spa in one session. This session will use all the treatments that Dr. Edmiston and his certified staff are skilled at, including deep tissue, hot stones, Chinese cupping, reflexology, and aromatherapy.
    • 50 Minutes $105
    • 80 Minutes $155
  • Chinese Hand and Foot Reflexology: Reflexology and acupressure are 5,000 year old hands-on therapies that were introduced to the United States in the early 1900’s. They are based on the theory that there are reflex zones and acupressure points in the hands and feet which are linked to every organ, tissue and gland through zones and channels. The ancient art of Chinese Reflexology uses essential oils to align the energy frequencies of the body to promote self healing and is more revitalising and deeper than conventional western reflexology.
    • 30 Minutes $65
    • 60 Minutes $109
  • Manual Lymphatic Drainage: Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a very specific treatment using the lightest pressures to assist and guide waste fluids to allow the body to cleanse. This extremely gentle type of massage is intended to encourage the natural drainage of lymph from tissues and encourage the healing process.
    • 50 Minutes $105
    • 80 Minutes $155
  • Sports Massage: Sports massage isn't just for the athlete, it is for everyone seeking greater range of motion in their joints, and seeking deep muscle work. Sports massage incorporates deep stretch with deep tissue work, targeting the tendons and fascia that pull and bind muscle fibers. Sports massage is great for athletes pre-event, post-event, between events and for restoration. It is also helpful for injury prevention along with increasing endurance, whether your work, sports or life in general demands it. When tendons and fascia are tight it lessens our range of motion, which in turn makes the joint and soft tissue around that joint susceptible to injury. Sports massage helps the soft tissue around those joints, allowing the joint to perform at its optimal potential.
    • 50 Minutes $95
    • 80 Minutes $140

Om Spa also offers complimentary signature mimosas, tea forte, or enderly coffee with any service.
