Massage & Acupuncture Services

A Spa-like Experience

The Teal Center for Therapeutic Bodywork is now providing professional massage services, in designated massage rooms at Virginia Hospital Center. 

Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue

Classic Swedish massage technique involves gentle manipulation using strokes such as gliding, kneading, stretching and tapping to promote circulation, relaxation, stress reduction, and general wellbeing. Deep tissue technique incorporates more focused, penetrating strokes such as compression and cross fiber friction to facilitate the release of specific muscles that are taut or knotted. These techniques are often combined in a full body massage.

Pre- and Post-Natal Massage

Especially designed for the comfort and well-being of mothers during the childbearing years, women will now have access to pre- and post- natal massage.

During pregnancy and following the birth of a child the mother's body needs special care. Massage therapy can help mothers adjust to the changes that occur during pregnancy and relieve some of the discomfort they may experience, such as low back pain and edema.

The relaxing effects of massage therapy are very useful in preparation for labor and delivery, and following birth bodywork to restore the pelvis to its proper alignment and ease the shoulder tension is highly recommended.

Gentle Touch Massage

The gentle, nurturing touch of massage therapy relaxes and softens injured and overused muscles, reduces spasms and cramping, increases joint flexibility and stimulates flow of lymph through the body, which is important for healing from disease.

Research shows that cancer patients who have participated in massage are less depressed, less anxious, less angry, and have increased stamina.
