- Deep Tissue Massage- Intended for clients who want a deeper pressure. This type of massage is best for clients who are dealing with pain or an injury. Deep tissue targets deeper muscles and tissue.
- Therapeutic Massage– This type of massage is intended for clients who have a specific issue. This massage helps decrease pain and increase mobility by working on the problem using multiple different techniques.

- Geriatric Massage– Intended for clients who are in their older years. This type of massage involves a lighter touch with little friction on the skin. This massage helps promote circulation, reduce pain, better sleep, and improve mental well being.
- Cupping Therapy– Cupping promotes blood circulation to the applied area. Cupping targets deep within the tissues and fascia. Cupping helps reduce inflammation and scar tissue. This therapy is very beneficial for those who have had a previous injury, tight fascia or chronic pain. This therapy normally takes around 15-30 minutes and should be done in specific areas.
- Hot Stone Massage– The heat from the stones helps ease tension and pain. It helps reduce stress and anxiety. The heat from the stones makes the muscles soften up and easier to work. This add-on can be done throughout the session or can be done for about 10 min on the back.
- Cold Stone Face Massage- This add on is beneficial for those who are having nasal and sinus congestion, headaches/migraines and TMJ. This add-on takes around 5-10 minutes.
- Aromatherapy Scalp Massage– This add-on is good for those who have headaches and migraines. Scalp massage promotes circulation to the head and reduces stress and anxiety. This add-on takes around 5-10 min.

Fitness Is a Core Jewish Value
At the JCC, fitness isn’t just something we do; it’s who we are. Although exercise is not mentioned in the Torah, taking care of one’s health is. In fact, while other belief systems advocate for the healing power of prayer, Judaism encourages people to look after their health and seek counsel from medical experts. In Judaism, good health is not a goal in itself. Rather, it is a means to an end – to serve the Creator.
