CHOOSE FROM SWEDISH, DEEP TISSUE, OR SPORTS
NO PESKY MENUS - JUST ONE GREAT RATE FOR STANDARD STYLES!


The therapists at Expertly Crafted practice out-come or results based bodywork.  We assess your wants and needs and then craft your session to meet that criteria.

There are over 300 massage modalities and styles certified by NCBTMB our sanctioning organization. Many of these are geared toward custom work.  Most clients are familiar with just a few of these. Swedish, various forms of Deep Tissue (which is not just a deep Swedish massage), and Sports.  Sports massage comes in three distinct sections, Pre-event (training),  Event, and Post-Event (repair).  Each serves a very different purpose.  In addition there is a style that is called integrative which combines bits and pieces of each of the above styles and includes stretching for a more complete experience.  Different people like or even need different things.  That is one of the wonderful parts of our profession, not just assuming that every client is the same and finding custom ways to meet each persons needs.

All vouchers, discounts, packages, and memberships may be applied to any of these styles of services.

PRE AND POST NATAL MASSAGE

Believe it or not, pre and post natal massage is a real specialty. During pregnancy your body changes every day. Regular bodywork will help you cope with the ongoing hormonal and structural changes taking place in your body and to keep you at peak performance levels.

Many prenatal therapists tend to work lighter on their clients, treating them with more of a "kid gloves" approach.  Jim, our owner, used to teach a two week course in prenatal, so our therapists have a totally different approach to your needs during pregnancy.  Your body is changing, muscles are aching, your spine is being stretched in uncomfortable ways, and your joints are freezing up.  Prenatal done well can ease so many of the aches and pains from these changes.

Expertly Crafted Wellness prenatal clients must be at least 14 weeks pregnant.  A high risk pregnancy (high blood pressure, high blood sugar, a history of miscarriage, and/or a troubled previous labor) should not received prenatal massage without express written permission from their physician.  Pregnancy's due to In Vitro Fertilization are also considered higher risk than a normal pregnancy by ECW and should consider not having a massage throughout their pregnancy.

All vouchers, discounts, packages, and memberships may be applied to pre and post natal services.

REGULAR RATES:
-AQUA STRETCH $ 140.00
   



AQUATIC MASSAGE AND AQUA STRETCH

 

There are 13 sanctioned and commonly used aquatic therapy techniques that can be performed by massage therapists.  Some are meant for relaxation and others carry a real punch to break up those  "jammed up" areas that can not be gotten to on land.  AQUA STRETCH is one such therapy that is used in a variety of settings, including by many physical therapists.  Simply put, this modality works better than massage on a table because of the natural buoyancy of the water and hydrostatic pressure.  Working with clients in the water is a very different experience than working on land.  It is a much more of an interactive team approach using the clients own intuition to help achieve the common goal. It this setting the therapist works with you, not on you. The ability to swim in not required to be able to undertake this incredibly effective and useful therapy approach.

A skilled ECW therapist will accompany you to a public pool with a warmer water therapy environment, one of our health clubs, or if you have a health club membership or apartment that includes a pool we are happy to work with you there.  Because of the increased time for a session with travel and locker room access, etc, aquatics is a premium product and a little more costly, but also incredibly more effective for old issues and chronic pain. 

Vouchers, coupons, and discounts may not be used for this service.

OTHER CURRENTLY OFFERED SPECIALTIES

 

There are over 300 certified massage modalities and styles . Many of these are geared toward custom work. Most clients are familiar with just a few basic styles: Deep Tissue (which is not just a deep Swedish massage),  and Sports massage which is offered  in three distinct sections (training, event, and post-event).

Deep Tissue is  a generic term used for modalities like Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular Therapy and CranioSacral Therapy. Many therapists also offer a variety of healing techniques which not only address the body, but the mind and soul as well.

In addition the above, all of the rest of the massage modalities pretty much fall into the  categories of either Integrative which combines bits and pieces of various styles along with stretching for a more complete experience, or Structural Integration which is meant for the purpose of reaching oldest and deepest of problems,working to reset and restore joints, ligaments and tendons.

At Expertly Crafted Wellness our philosophy is that getting a massage is about finding the right fit between client and therapist. Some clients only want or need relaxation while others at times may need the deepest work possible. Don't assume all massage therapy is created equal!
