Dr. Michael Kane
Dr. Michael Kane, a graduate of Bastyr University in Washington State, has been practicing preventative medicine in Connecticut for the last 22 years. He uses his skills in counseling and knowledge of the human condition to engage and support his patients in a goal oriented way so they can establish a solid foundation of healthy living. He believes that without a solid foundation of healthy support the body will begin to require more and more in the way of intervention. In his experience most people want to have a choice in what forms of intervention are chosen and that if given a choice most people choose a more natural solution.

Swedish Massage Therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Sports Massage Therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers.

Traditional Thai Massage (Coming Soon) is an ancient healing system that combines broad and targeted acupressure, stimulation and manipulation of energy lines called sen, and assisted yoga postures. Treatment effects are enhanced when the patient is fully relaxed and breathing deeply. This traditional healing practice stands in sharp contrast to western massage therapies. Traditional Thai Massage rarely uses oils or lotions, and the recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the practitioner and client where the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked in order to clear energy blockages and relieve tension. The overall effect is one of deep relaxation, rejuvenation and physical and mental well being.
Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Oncology massage is the modification of existing massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatment. Anyone who has ever received cancer treatment, from those in active treatment to those in recovery or survivorship, as well as those at the end of life, are best served by a massage therapist who has received training in oncology massage. Essential aspects of an oncology massage therapist's skill set are an informed understanding of the disease itself and the many ways it can affect the human body; the side effects of cancer treatments, such as medications, surgery, chemotherapy and radiation; and the ability to modify massage techniques in order to adapt for these side effects, as well as for the disease.
