Integrative massage therapy is a treatment that involves the integration of therapy techniques from a number of different modalities including massage, somatic therapy and bodywork techniques. It is based on the idea that not just one massage is right for every person or can solve every problem. That is why through using a variety of techniques every individual problem of the body can be targeted and addressed with its own approach, producing optimal results. This technique has been used to benefit patients with lower back pain, migraines, chronic pain, unhealthy habits, phobias and skin diseases. Integrative massage has also been shown to help those with depression, eating disorders, sexual difficulties, distorted self-images, and traumatic events. Integrative massage is beneficial for anyone who wants to enjoy life to the fullest, physically, mentally and spiritually.  Integrative massage can help anyone transition towards a better life.

Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage. Myofascial Release (MFR) is a technique we use to reduce or eliminates pain, making it easier to move. MFR is characterized by sustained gentle pressure used to thoroughly soften and liquify hard or tender areas within the fluid components of connective tissue while simultaneously separating, straightening and stretching its fibrous components. Very little lotion is used with MFR for the greatest effect with fascial layers and connective tissue.

Bodywork is a form of therapeutic treatment which involves physical manipulation of the body or the energy believed to be associated with the body. Many people view it as alternative medicine, although techniques like sports massage are being increasingly accepted in the medical community. There are a wide variety of techniques, all of which require specialized training to ensure that practitioners understand anatomy and potential contraindications.

Practitioners believe that many health conditions are the result of issues with the physical body such as tension, tight muscles, soreness, or a blockage of the energy fields which some people think are present in and around the body. Muscle aches, pain, and soreness are all treated with bodywork, and some practitioners may also use these techniques to treat headaches, stress, and a variety of other conditions. Many types involve the physical manipulation of the body with massage techniques; when focused on the body's energy, it is sometimes known as energy work.

In some cultures, bodywork is accepted as an essential part of well-being. In Ayurveda, for example, regular oil massages are prescribed to maintain general health, while in Traditional Chinese Medicine; it may be used to balance the flow of chi in the body to treat specific health conditions. In the West, bodywork is used by many athletes to keep their bodies in good shape, while others may enjoy it for its relaxing benefits. These techniques are also believed to be good for people with depression and other emotional problems because touch is generally associated with psychological benefits.
