Sterling Deep Tissue Massage

STM’s deep tissue massages are designed to restore your muscles and alleviate pain and tension in the muscles and tissues. We use sustained pressure through slow and deep strokes that penetrate the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. The gentle pressure breaks up scar tissue that may occur after an injury or prolonged tension, leading to increased flexibility and reduced pain. Our massages are particularly beneficial for athletes who are recovering from injuries or sprains since they promote quicker healing, better blood circulation, and less inflammation.


Are you tired of persistent lower back, neck or leg pains that leave you feeling drained at the end of a long workday? Try STM’s deep tissue massage sessions to relieve muscle tension, increase mobility, and leave you feeling revitalized!


Our expert massage therapists take pride in providing excellent service in a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere. Be sure to fill out a brief online intake form so you can get the best service possible. Your massage therapist will tailor your session according to your specific needs and goals, ensuring a completely personalized experience.


During the massage, feel free to communicate any concerns or areas of pain, and we will be careful not to exacerbate any bruised muscle or tissue. Whether you opt for a full-body massage or prefer to focus solely on one area, we have you covered.


We understand that first-timers might feel a bit nervous about the process of massage therapy, but don't fret! We work hard to create a professional and hospitable environment where each client can feel comfortable, relaxed, and well taken care of.

Sterling Swedish Massage

STM’s Swedish massage therapy is designed to eliminate tension and promote renewed energy, while also alleviating pain.


Swedish massage is a classic form of therapy that combines joint movement with massaging strokes on the outermost layers of the muscles, promoting muscle relaxation. During your treatment with us, we will use various techniques such as effleurage and tapotement, combined with your requirements to create tailored therapy. Whether you're old or young, or what your daily activity level is - our Swedish massage treatment can help you alleviate pain in tense areas, allowing you to live comfortably.


The widely practiced therapeutic Swedish massage offers numerous benefits for people of all ages. For maximum advantages, it is advisable to receive Swedish massage therapy at least once per week or twice per month, depending on the level of muscle tension. The following are some of the benefits of Swedish massage therapy:


Enhanced Blood Circulation - The lengthy, stroke-like motions used in Swedish massage therapy direct the blood flow toward your heart and improve blood circulation. The enhanced blood flow helps your muscles to receive more oxygen and essential nutrients, thereby relieving muscle tension, reducing pain, and eliminating toxins, making you feel healthier.


Pain Reliever - Swedish massage therapy is a natural way to eliminate pain, especially for individuals with underlying medical conditions like osteoarthritis. The therapist targets specific muscle tension/pain areas in your body, enhances blood flow, reduces tension, and relieves pain.


Flexibility Improvement - Consistent Swedish massage therapy is excellent for improving your flexibility and range of motion. Loose muscles can move and adjust quickly, thereby preventing injuries while engaging in physicals activities like exercise or sports.


Reduced Stress Levels - Swedish massage therapy creates a perfect opportunity to relax and focus on yourself. Relaxing the muscles helps de-stress your mind, promoting relaxation. After a Swedish massage session, you'll feel both physically and emotionally relaxed and ready to tackle your daily activities.


Difference Between Swedish and Deep Tissue


Swedish and deep tissue massages are two of the most popular types of massage therapies that can help alleviate muscle tension. If you're wondering which massage therapy is right for you, consider the following:


+Swedish massage, commonly known as a "classic massage," is a good fit for individuals looking to relax and ease areas of muscle tension. The massage therapist uses long, gentle kneading strokes to work through and relieve muscle tension. The massage can help with a range of issues, but is particularly effective in alleviating pain in the lower back, neck, and shoulders. Swedish massage therapists can also focus on specific areas of tension if requested. After a Swedish massage, you should feel more relaxed, your nerve endings will be stimulated, and there should be improved blood flow and lymph drainage throughout the body.


+Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage, but with a heavier emphasis on applying pressure using deep strokes. It is a more appropriate choice for athletes, people with injuries, or chronic pain conditions. The deep and intense strokes can help reach and stretch deep tissue, improve blood flow to the soft tissue, and reduce inflammation. Although the massage therapist may begin by warming up the entire body, they will focus specifically on areas with pain and tension during the majority of the session.

Sterling Pain Management Massage

Sterling Therapeutic Massage specializes in pain management. We are professional and experienced massage therapists that focus on delivering effective pain relief, injury therapy, and enhanced mobility to our clients. Our mission is to promote chronic pain management, healing, and functional progress in the human body through natural means, rather than relying on chemical pain management.


Our therapeutic massage services are suitable for people who suffer from different types of chronic pain. Chronic pain refers to persistent pain that lasts more than 12 weeks despite treatment and medication. Several factors can cause chronic pain, including physical injuries, trauma, nerve damage, surgical procedures, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, or an active lifestyle.


Therapeutic Massage for pain management by STM is an effective treatment for certain chronic conditions that involve chronic pain. Discover how massage can improve the following chronic health issues:


+Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes widespread pain throughout the body. It is often accompanied by fatigue, sleep disorders, increased pain sensitivity, and mental and emotional stress. Many patients turn to massage therapy as an alternative treatment option, which can provide immediate relief from pain, anxiety, and depression.


+Back pain can occur due to muscle or ligament strain, ruptured or bulging disks, osteoporosis, or arthritis. People experiencing back pain may feel muscle aches, shooting pains, or burning sensations, which can limit their ability to walk, stand, bend, or lift properly. Fortunately, massage therapy can be an effective way to alleviate chronic back pain.


+Neck pain is a common condition typically caused by poor posture, heavy lifting, repetitive motion, pinched nerves, whiplash, or fibromyalgia. Symptoms of neck pain can include muscle spasms, tightness, or headaches and can sometimes limit movement of the neck or head. Fortunately, massage therapy is often effective in reducing or alleviating chronic neck pain.


+Shoulder pain is commonly caused by tendon inflammation, fractures, or arthritis, and can result in instability of the bone structure or soft tissues in the shoulder area. This pain can limit physical activities and is often chronic if left untreated. People who work for prolonged periods at a desk may also experience shoulder pain due to poor posture, further highlighting the importance of seeking treatment for chronic pain.


+Tension headaches are typically triggered by stress, eye strain, colds, dental problems, caffeine consumption, or excessive smoking. Symptoms of tension headaches include muscle tightness and discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck, which may impact a person's ability to engage in daily activities. Tension headaches often come with associated pain in nearby areas, such as the shoulders and neck.


+Therapeutic Massage is effective for chronic leg pain caused by underlying issues, such as sports injuries, disease, or physical trauma. Similarly, hand pain can result from repetitive motion injuries, joint inflammation, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and carpal tunnel syndrome, causing discomfort in the connective tissues, muscles, and joints of the hands, exacerbated by daily activities.


+Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is a persistent health condition that causes extreme fatigue, along with other symptoms such as muscle and joint pain, a sore throat, sleep disturbances, dizziness, and heart palpitations. Massage therapy can help reduce associated symptoms like fatigue, anxiety, and depression that are common in people with CFS.


+Arthritis is a medical condition in which the joints become inflamed, and it can impact a single joint or multiple joints. People with arthritis often experience joint swelling, stiffness, limited range of motion, and pain. However, massage therapy can help reduce arthritis pain and joint tension.


+Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a condition that can happen when a nerve in the wrist area becomes compressed or feels pressure. As a result, people with CTS often experience tingling sensations, numbness, and pain in their hands and fingers. Massage therapy can help alleviate inflammation in the carpal tunnel through muscle and fascia stretching in the hands, wrists, arms, neck, and shoulders.


+Sciatica is a medical condition that occurs when the sciatic nerve gets compressed. This condition typically originates in the lower back and extends down the leg, leading to nerve pain, numbness, and postural problems.


+The lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating toxins and waste materials from the body. By stimulating the lymphatic system, massage can help boost the immune system and reduce swelling in the body.


In summary, natural treatments are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative way to manage or treat health issues without relying on chemical medication. Compared to conventional medical treatments, natural treatments like massage therapy are typically non-invasive, have fewer side effects, and have a lower risk of dependency or substance abuse. Massage therapy can effectively relieve and treat chronic pain by easing muscle tension, increasing serotonin, reducing nerve compression, minimizing inflammation, and promoting lymphatic drainage. These benefits make therapeutic massage a valuable tool for patients seeking natural pain relief.


Benefits of Therapeutic Massage


Reduce Muscle Tension

Through applying pressure to the body, massage helps to loosen up tense muscles, tendons, and ligaments. This reduces spasms and contractions that cause discomfort.


Boosts Mood and Relieves Pain

Massage stimulates the production of hormones like serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphins. The release of these hormones can help generate a positive mood and signal the brain to dull pain sensations.


Relieves Nerve Pressure

Massage can reduce nerve compression, which can improve communication between the brain and muscles/organs. This can address pinched nerves, nerve damage, and other issues. Your therapists may even apply pressure to areas other than the problematic one to relieve nerve pain.


Reduces Inflammation

Massage can reduce inflammation by spurring cellular activity like mitochondrial growth in the muscles. People with inflammatory conditions and musculoskeletal injuries can potentially find relief from massage therapy.


Promotes Lymphatic Flow

Massage encourages the movement of lymph fluids in the body, which is particularly helpful for people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other lymphatic system-related health problems.


Eliminates Toxins

Massage can help your body expel toxins and waste by stimulating the lymphatic system. This system helps to rid the body of toxins and other debris, with massage making a contribution towards efficient detoxification.

Pain Management Massage Techniques

When you book a pain management therapeutic massage, your therapist will use advanced techniques tailored to your chronic pain to provide you with relief. Depending on your specific needs, a variety of techniques may be employed to ease your pain and improve your overall well-being.


Some techniques that may be used include deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, neuromuscular therapy, among others. These techniques are designed to provide targeted relief to different areas of the body and promote overall relaxation and healing. The therapist may also use specialized tools and equipment, such as percussion massage guns, moist heat and/or hot stones, to help alleviate pain and tension.

Sterling Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a technique that has been gaining steady popularity over the years, and it's not hard to see why! It's a specialty massage that uses heated basalt stones in addition to the therapist's hands to work on your muscles. 


During your entire-body hot stone massage, the therapist will place warm stones on specific points on your body. They will also hold the stones and use them to massage to eliminate tension in tight muscles. The heat from the stones helps to loosen muscles, allowing the therapist to work more deeply and effectively on the soft tissues.


Hot stone massage provides numerous health benefits, such as easing stiffness and tension in the muscles, improving circulation, and reducing stress and anxiety. It can be a deeply relaxing and rejuvenating experience, with the heat from the stones helping to relax your muscles and calm your mind.


Overall, hot stone massage is perfect for those who want to reduce muscle tension brought on by everyday stresses or a sedentary lifestyle. With its many benefits, it's an excellent choice for those looking to destress, relax, and bring their bodies back into balance.

Sterling Cupping Massage

Cupping massage is a method of massage that utilizes ancient techniques to alleviate muscle pain and tension. This technique induces relaxation in individuals across all age groups, by utilizing negative pressure to help muscle relaxation, instead of direct pressure as seen in conventional massage therapy. Suction cups are applied to the skin, and this draws the muscles and tissue upwards for a period of 5-20 minutes. Cupping therapy offers numerous benefits, among which include lymphatic drainage, loosening of stiff muscles, increased hydration and blood flow to body tissues, reduction of inflammation, and relief of localized pain.

Relieve sinus or head congestion, TMJ, scarring, or inflammation by trying Facial cupping therapy. Regular use can provide a natural facelift without surgery. Results speak for themselves, with a valuable client experiencing significant face and body slimming alongside reduced wrinkles and fine lines. Even a teacher who underwent facial reconstruction couldn't see her scars after trying this therapy. Try our 30 minute facial cupping therapy.


Cupping therapy is a safe massage therapy option for everyone. It usually only causes temporary red marks or circular discolorations, which fade away after a few days. However, individuals with certain medical conditions, such as anemia or hemophilia, should consult their healthcare providers before trying this technique.


After each cupping therapy session, it is important to care for your body properly. This includes:

+staying hydrated

+avoiding showering immediately after treatment

+keeping cupping areas warm and covered

+refraining from drinking alcohol to aid in the detoxification process

+pay attention to flu-like symptoms, which might occur the following day.


Cupping therapy is beneficial to both athletes and non-athletes alike.


At present, cupping massage is only available from Lauren.

Sterling Prenatal Massage

Discover the transformative benefits of Prenatal Massage, a therapeutic and holistic massage designed to alleviate the stress, tension, and physical discomfort experienced during pregnancy.


At STM we use similar techniques as Swedish massage, with slight variations to address the specific needs of pregnant women. Doctors often prescribe prenatal massage as supplemental care during pregnancy to help reduce aches and pains, as well as promote relaxation.


The benefits of prenatal massage are numerous. One of the most significant benefits offered is the release of dopamine and improved serotonin levels, which can decrease symptoms of depression often experienced during pregnancy. Nerve and muscle stimulation during prenatal massage elevates these hormones, promoting a sense of wellbeing.


In addition to regulating hormone levels and promoting a positive mood, prenatal massage also helps to improve heart health and labor outcomes. By increasing blood flow and reducing the chance of blood clots, this type of massage can also minimize joint pain, muscle aches, and swelling commonly experienced during pregnancy. It stimulates muscle tissue to relieve headaches and promote better sleep, enhancing overall wellness.


Experience the transformative effects of prenatal massage for yourself. Schedule a session today and enjoy a safe and healthy delivery, improved mood, and a reduction in common side effects of pregnancy.

Self-Care Tips Following a Therapeutic Massage:

1. Drink plenty of water: Drinking water before your massage can help with blood flow, and it can help you feel more comfortable during your session. Also, massages can increase circulation, which means that you may need to go to the bathroom more frequently after your massage. Therefore, it is important to keep yourself hydrated both before and after your massage session.


2. Take a warm bath or shower: Taking an Epsom salt bath after a massage can be a great way to extend the benefits of your massage and promote relaxation and wellness. The magnesium in Epsom salt is believed to help reduce inflammation and improve muscle function, making it a popular choice for athletes and people with muscle pain.


3. Rest and relax: When you rest after a massage, your body is able to fully integrate the benefits of the massage and continue the healing process. This can help you to experience greater pain relief, stress reduction, and overall relaxation. Not resting after a massage can hinder some of the benefits you may have received during your session.


4. Stretch: Gentle stretching can help to increase circulation and flexibility, and can also reduce any lingering discomfort from the massage.


5. Apply heat: Heat therapy is helpful for chronic pain or muscle tension, because it can help to relax muscles and increase blood flow. A hot compress or heating pad can be applied for 20-30 minutes at a time. Applying heat too soon after a massage can delay the healing process and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment. Wait a few hours before applying a heating pad or other heating therapy.


6. Take a walk or do light exercise: Gentle exercise can help to increase circulation and release tension in your muscles.


7. Schedule your next massage to continue your self-care routine and maintain your overall health and wellness.
