Releasing tension with a healing touch

Massage Therapy

Shoulder Massage

Massage is both a relaxing and therapeutic experience. It can reduce stress, relieve pain, increase circulation and improve your outlook on life. It can even be a part of your medical treatment plan.

Our licensed massage practitioners (LMPs) can tailor your experience by selecting and combining just the right massage techniques and muscle and tension relief work to create a custom massage session that will transport you to a deeply relaxed state of health and well being. 

Signature Massage with Customized Enhancements

Reduce your everyday stress, relax your muscles and increase circulation to help balance the mind and body with these classic Swedish massage techniques.  
Further benefits can be experienced by adding in custom massage elements (no additional time is necessary), including:  
 

  • Deep Tissue - target deeper layers of muscle tissue with concentrated pressure point work (GH, P)
  • Aroma Ritual - combine your massage with the healing benefits of the aromatherapy of your choice (GH, P)
  • Hot Basalt River Stones - relax as the swirling heat melts away your tension allowing you to experience new dimensions of health, comfort and relaxation (GH)
  • Shellatsu - this revolutionary massage technique uses two smooth-polished, heated shells to warm and loosen your muscles (P)
  • Foot Scrub - use your time during your complimentary foot soak to its fullest and add an exfoliating Foot Scrub with our organic Hawaiian body care line (GH)
  • Paraffin Hand or Foot Treatment - while your therapist’s hands soothe your muscles, allow the benefits of paraffin to soothe your hands or feet to leave them feeling silky smooth (GH, P)
  • Reflexology - escalate the benefits of your foot massage by getting specific pressure point released on your feet great for anyone on their feet a lot, especially runners (GH)
  • Maternity Massage - Ease the many physical and mental stresses unique to expectant mothers, to allow a relaxed state for greater comfort (pregnancy pillow and/or table adjustments are made to enable restful positioning) (GH, P)
  • Cupping - Incorporating cups during a massage session, via negative pressure, massage cupping lifts and separates adhered layers of tissue, stimulates the lymphatic system, promotes deep relaxation, and facilitates healing in hypertonic tissue. Our Licensed Massage Practitioners use soft, flexible silicone cups that are applied during the treatment to facilitate myofascial release, increase circulation and to decrease scar tissue and adhesions.
    *Disclaimer: Discoloration of tissue where cups are applied may occur during the treatment.

These procedures vary by location, but are available at our Gig Harbor and Puyallup locations.

Practiced in Thailand for over 2,000 years, Thai Massage works to clear blocked energy and frees the body’s own natural healing potential to restore balance, health and harmony.  Thai massage helps to strengthen the body and increase flexibility, while allowing you to benefit from the relaxation and healing properties of massage.  

With Thai massage you remain fully clothed while the therapist uses his or her own body weight to gently position your body on a comfortable Thai massage floor mat.

Medical Massage

Medical massage refers to therapeutic massage services that can be billed to most medical insurance policies.

Our LMPs have a strong background in pathology, illness and injury, as well as the contraindications of specific massage techniques related to various medical conditions. They work under the close direction of physicians and chiropractors to create a balanced and integrated medical massage experience as part of your treatment, physical therapy or rehabilitation.

Note that scheduling a medical massage requires a doctor’s referral and MultiCare MedSpa follows a specific process to ensure that our medical massage patients are receiving the proper treatment.

This procedure is available at our Gig Harbor and Puyallup locations.
