We take a holistic approach to health
and well being.

Therapeutic Massage & Alternative Medicine

At Mana Healing we have a holistic approach health and well being. Our massage therapies not only provide relaxation but also use the latest therapeutic techniques to provide relief from tension and pain. Let us guide you on your journey toward a more healthy and well balanced life.



  • Trigger Point Therapy


    Trigger point therapy is focused on creating a relief in muscles through a direct pressure. This release can relieve chronic muscle contractions while preventing blockages of neurons and blood vessels.


  • IASTM Technique


    Stainless steal instruments are used in combination with a Swedish Massage. Deeper access to tissues is gained, allowing for more substantial release of muscular adhesions and increased breaking down of fibrous scar tissue.

  • Swedish Massage


    Massage lotion is used with smooth, gliding strokes. Swedish massage incorporates firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits. This is a classic massage style which will ease stress and slipping you to slip into a calm state of relaxation and ease.

  • Myofascial Release


    Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. This method engages the myofascial tissue and loads it with a circular force until release occurs. It is common to for a therapist to use thumbs, elbows, and forearms to stretch the restricted fascia. The massage progresses slowly through the layers of the fascia until the deeper tissues are reached.

  • Hot Stone Massage


    Smooth stones are heated and then lubricated, the therapeutic effects of the heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. Used as an extension of the therapist’s hands, the use of massage stones induces deep relaxation and provides a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering.

  • Cranial Sacral


    Craniosacral therapy uses gentle touch manipulation of your head, neck, and the bottom of your spine. There is an energetic quality to the treatment which creates space for emotional release and physical harmonization.

The Mana Healing Philosophy

Mana Healing provides alternative medicine through massage therapy and health education. These modalities treat the individual as a whole, instead of focusing primarily on particular parts. That is to say that true well being can only be gained when biological, psychological, and social factors are all integrated harmoniously within a person.

Alternative medicine focuses on the health of the whole person rather than the symptomatology presented.

Our main approaches are:

1. Release of tensions through manual therapy
2. Integration of eastern and western healing therapies
3. Creating a partnership approach to care
4. Provide clients with scientifically based educational information
