Adult Therapeutic Massage Services
We offer 30, 60, & 90 Minute massage sessions tailored for you specific needs.
Therapeutic massage can help in a number of recovery and wellness situations. It's ideal for those healing from an injury or managing an ongoing musculoskeletal condition. If your hobbies or job involve strenuous physical activity, therapeutic massage may aid your body in coping and performing better. Some simply prefer the deep pressure of techniques used.
Your therapist may employ several adjunct modalities at their discretion based on your needs. Cupping therapy, instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization and muscle energy techniques help break up adhesions and knots. Neuromuscular facilitation and kinesiology taping can further address imbalances and support the body. Our therapists are trained in techniques like deep tissue, Swedish massage and trigger point therapies.

At Refuge Wellness, our approach to therapeutic massage prioritizes each client's unique wellness needs and goals. To fully understand how to support your journey, we follow a tried-and-true 3-step cornerstone process with every session.
Our massage therapists will take the time to learn about any areas causing pain or discomfort, your lifestyle and daily routines, wellness priorities, medical history and more. This personalized intake provides invaluable insights into tailoring your treatment.
Armed with information from the assessment, our individualized treatment directly addresses your specific concerns. Whether alleviating chronic tension, recovering from an injury or simply promoting relaxation, techniques are carefully chosen and modified based on your feedback to achieve the best results.
No session at Refuge Wellness is complete without follow up to ensure your continued progress. Post-massage, your therapist will provide guidance to complement in-office work and check-in on how you're feeling. Follow up appointments are also scheduled to support your wellness goals long-term.
