Look and Feel Rejuvenated

Let go of the stress from daily routines or work and experience optimal health for your mind and body. You can relax with a calming massage from our Purcellville, Virginia, team. Whether you need a gentle or deep tissue massage, Laura Fisher,L.M.T. provides your mind and body the relief that you deserve.  


Man Getting Massage

Swedish

One of our popular massages is the Swedish massage. This is a gentle form of massage therapy that uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration, and tapping to help relax and energize you. If you find that your body is sore or tender, then this is a perfect choice for you. 

Deep Tissue

This massage technique uses slower, more forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, ideal for muscle damage from injuries. If you play a lot of sports or live an active lifestyle, this could be just the thing that keeps you in tip-top shape. 

Pain Relief

Experts estimate that upwards of 90% of disease is stress-related and that perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage therapy is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

Decreased Anxiety | Enhanced Sleep Quality | Greater Energy | Improved Concentration | Increased Circulation | Reduced Fatigue

Anxiety | Digestive Disorders | Fibromyalgia | Headaches | Stress-Related Insomnia | Myofascial | Pain Syndrome | Soft Tissue Strains or Injuries | Sports Injuries | Temporomandibular Joint Pain

Woman and Masseuse

For Your Comfort

Treat yourself to a feeling you'll love. Beyond the benefits for specific conditions or diseases, some people enjoy massage therapy because it often produces feelings of compassion, comfort, and connection.

Risks

Despite the benefits, massages aren't meant as a replacement for regular medical care. Let your doctor know if you're trying this type of alleviation and be sure to follow any standard treatment plans you have. A massage may not be appropriate if you have:

Bleeding Disorders or Take Blood-Thinning Medication | Burns or Healing Wounds | Deep Vein Thrombosis | Fractures | Severe Osteoporosis | Severe Thrombocytopenia
