Breathe massage therapy Vancouver WA

If you are looking to book a same-day appointment, PLEASE CALL at 360.604.1226. You may also schedule online up to 18 hours in advance of desired appointment time.

At Breathe we offer many types, or modalities, of massage. Most can be mixed together, so feel free to ask your therapist about incorporating the styles that interest you. The following modalities are just a handful of the many styles of massage available at Breathe. View our massage therapists page for more info on which therapist offers what modalities:

Swedish Massage - Swedish massage is primarily used for relaxation and stress-relief. Cream or oil may be applied to the body using lighter pressure massage techniques known as effleurage and petrissage.

Deep Tissue Massage - Deep Tissue massage is used to relieve pain and/or increase range of motion due to injury or repetitive stress. With this type of work, the massage therapist may use forearms, elbows and/or thumbs to apply firm pressure in order to access the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissues in the body. Deep Tissue work can be used in conjunction with Swedish massage or by itself. It is a great modality for targeting specific conditions such a frozen shoulder, tendonitis, sciatica or chronic headache.

Thai Massage - Thai Massage is a style of massage developed in Thailand that combines massage with deep pressure, assisted stretching and rhythmic compression to stretch and relax the muscles and relieve tension. It is performed on a mat on the floor, and the client wears loose comfortable clothing (see below for more information on Thai Massage).

Pre-Natal Massage - Pre-Natal massage is designed specifically for expectant mothers. We offer Pre-Natal massage with bolsters and pillows either in the side-lying position or reclined on a soft wedge. Side-lying and reclined massage are also great options for clients who may have difficulty or experience discomfort when lying face up on their back or face down on their abdomen.

Reiki - Reiki applies a healing energy through very gentle touch and manipulation of the auric field above the body. Reiki supports the entire person physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. On a physical level, it relaxes stressed muscles, decreases pain and accelerates healing. Emotionally, it reduces anxiety and stress and increases a sense of well-being. Spiritually, clients state they often feel reborn and clearer about their intentions (see below for more information on Reiki).
