Sports Massage/Deep Tissue
Its been the cornerstone of our business for ten years in Bend, and its because we love to geek out on your movement patterns, range of motion, and restrictions!
Sports massage increases circulation and clears metabolic waste in tissues, reduces physical restriction in soft tissues, and increases contractile length in muscles.
We work to restore balance to your body to keep you moving and prevent injuries.
Swedish / Relaxation Massage

Breathe deep and find your zen.
Pain and tension in the jaw can be a result of various factors, including hypertensive muscles in the shoulders, neck, and head or structural dysfunction. This 60 minute session includes a comprehensive intake to determine the suspected cause of headaches or jaw tension and pain, trigger point therapy, massage, and fascial release to soft tissue of the shoulders, neck and head. Intra-oral jaw work can be an added technique to release deep muscles that control jaw movement. The relief of tension and pain from this session can be immense, and is indicated for those with TMJD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction) or occupational postural stress (prolonged desk work).
During pregnancy, massage helps to reverse the effects of physical and mental fatigue, while also improving circulation, decreasing stress in weight-bearing joints, and lessening pain in the muscles of the lower back, shoulders, neck, and calves. Techniques used ensure a healthier pregnancy, create a more restful mind and body, and prepare the body for the birthing process itself.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy is a light touch approach to bodywork that enhances the body’s own healing capabilities. Working with the central nervous system allows the body to relax and self-correct.

This treatment is indicated for the following conditions:
Autism, brain injury, central nervous system disorders, chronic fatigue, colic, concussion, fibromyalgia, immune disorders, migraines, neck pain, post-traumatic stress, spinal cord injury, chronic stress/anxiety.

Cupping is an ancient Chinese method of clearing local congestion. A partial vacuum is created when cups are placed on the skin, either by means of heat or suction. This vacuum draws up the underlying tissues, increasing local circulation and releasing fascial restrictions. Chinese cupping can be added to any session at Action Dynamix free of charge.
All of our sessions are priced for time, regardless of the modality you choose.
Your therapist will consult with you prior to your session to tailor their work to your needs. There is no additional charge for essential oils, hot/cold treatments, infrared heat, or cupping.
