Massage and Mobility Services
For those seeking to improve their mobility, fitness, and functional performance, Refuge Wellness in Republic, MO is excited to partner with you to help you enhance your health and wellness. Our expertise offers a variety of techniques that can help you reduce stress, relieve muscle tension, and help prevent injury.
Our specialized massage therapy services are designed to promote your physical and mental health, and we are dedicated to providing personalized care that meets your unique needs and help you achieve your movement goals.
Therapeutic massage is most appropriate if you are recovering from an injury, coping with a chronic musculoskeletal diagnosis, participate in labor-intensive hobbies or occupation, or simply if you prefer deep-tissue massage techniques. Modalities including cupping, instrument-assisted tissue mobility, muscle-energy techniques, neuromuscular facilitation, and taping may be utilized at therapist discretion.
Prenatal & Perinatal Massage
Are you looking to relax, prepare, or recover as a momma?
This is the massage for you. With safe techniques and positioning, both the momma and baby will appreciate this special time dedicated for you!
Swedish Relaxation Massage
Swedish massage is most appropriate if your goal for your treatment session is merely to relax. If you prefer a lighter touch during your massage due to age, inflammatory diseases, or just because that's what you like, this is the massage for you!
If you keep feeling like your body is not moving the way it should, either at work or play, let's work together to find ways to optimize your movement and minimize risk of injury. Combining a physical therapy and sports massage background gives us a unique combination of skills to observe your movement and recommend ideas you can implement to reach your goals.
Your movement consultation will typically last for at least 30 minutes.
