Massage therapy or bodyworks offers a wide range of benefits. Massage therapy can eliminate toxins, reduce pain, relieve stress, help you to sleep better, improve immunity, reduce restlessness and fatigue and help you to heal.

At Carrboro Massage & Acupuncture we offer a wide range of massage modalities that are delivered by caring, compassionate professionals. Our massage therapists offer custom bodywork solutions to help relieve pain, manage stress and improve your wellness including:

Swedish Massage

The most well-known bodyworks therapy. This type of massage therapy is focused on relaxing the whole body. Long luxurious strokes are used to help relax the muscles.

Deep Tissue Therapy

Deep Tissue massage therapy involves firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deep layers of muscle and connective tissue. It’s perfect for chronic aches and pain in contracted areas.

Gua Sha

This is a part of traditional Chinese medicine. It stimulates the immune system, detoxifies the body and can even reduce fever due to the flu.


Moxa can be used with acupuncture or as a stand-alone treatment. This form of traditional Chinese medicine helps to heal blood stagnation that can cause a deficiency in the Qi! It is used to treat arthritis, infertility, painful menstruation, back pain and other painful conditions.

Neuromuscular therapy

A form of soft tissue massage that aims to treat underlying issues by addressing trigger points, circulation, nerve compression and more.

Sports Massage

Sports Massages focus on the areas of the body that may become overworked or strained due to a specific sport.

Craniosacral Therapy

This uses gentle touch to palpate the synarthrodial joints of the cranium, helping to restore cranial mobility and ease or release restrictions of the head, neck, and nerves.


Reiki use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which energy is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient to encourage healing

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymph fluid buildup is removed through a series of gentle circular movements of light pressure that follow the distribution of lymph drainage.

Pregnancy and Prenatal

Prenatal massages are a great way to reduce stress, ease tension, and promote overall wellness!

Oncology Massage

Acupuncture for Pain Management and More

Kim Calandra, L.Ac. the founder of Carrboro Massage & Acupuncture is our acupuncturist. She has been practicing this ancient art for over 18 years. Acupuncture is a traditional treatment in Chinese medicine that has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of maladies.

Very thin needles (less than two human hairs thick) are inserted into strategic points on the body. Acupuncture is customized to the individual for example if 25 people had the same symptoms, each one of those 25 people could have acupuncture performed on different points of the body.

The World Health Organization supports this treatment for over 200 different ailments. It can treat everything from the common cold to anxiety. It can be used as both a complementary and alternative medicine option.

One of the best reasons to try acupuncture is that there are no negative side effects that can be found with some Western treatment modalities. It can be the solution for successfully managing both chronic and acute conditions.
