The Nava Method: A Unique Approach to Wellness

To help our clients achieve the best possible outcomes, our specialists utilize the Nava Method, our unique approach to wellness that looks at the entire person. Rather than merely offering massage therapy, we offer it in tandem with a host of other holistic services, therapies, and products. Using these systemic yet flexible processes, we help you target specific needs and goals.

The four-step Nava Method involves the following:

  1. Assessment: We start by discussing your history, wellness goals, and our in-depth, science-based, proprietary assessment and protocol with you.
  2. Diagnostic Phase: We get to the root of your concerns through comprehensive lab work that evaluates 65 bio-chemical markers (i.e., more than double what a typical physical reviews). Through a comprehensive session, you and your physician discuss your results, their implications, and the proprietary plan we’ve customized for you.
  3. Custom Vitality Plan (CVP): Based on your assessment and diagnostic results, we create a proprietary, algorithm-based plan for your specific situation and needs. This plan is personalized to you and may include recommendations on premium-grade supplements alongside services from a massage therapist, a clinical nutritionist, and a doctor.
  4. Accountability: We work with you over time to achieve positive results through an ongoing, fluid wellness approach.

At Nava Health & Vitality Center, your massage therapy is always customized to your specific needs for optimal results. Our licensed massage therapists undergo rigorous training in order to combine multiple modalities in each session as needed, and this is always as part of a larger, overarching CVP that has been customized to you.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Massage Therapy Alleviate My Stress and Anxiety? 

Massage therapy uses gentle pressure and rhythmic motions to relax both your muscles and mind. This helps release endorphins, your brain’s natural feel-good chemicals, while lowering cortisol levels—the stress hormone. Together, these effects can significantly reduce anxiety and promote a calm, relaxed state. That’s why massage therapy is a great addition to your stress management routine.

Can Massage Therapy Enhance My Sleep Quality?

Massage therapy may improve sleep quality for many people. The relaxation it provides eases muscle tension and reduces stress, both of which can disrupt sleep. It also boosts serotonin production, a hormone crucial for regulating sleep cycles. By fostering harmony and relaxation throughout your body, massage therapy promotes deeper, more restful sleep.

What Should I Wear for a Massage Session? 

Comfort is key during your massage. Most people choose to undress to their comfort level, but you can keep on as much or as little clothing as you prefer. Throughout the session, you’ll be covered with a sheet or towel, and only the area being massaged will be exposed to ensure your privacy. If you prefer to remain clothed, loose, and comfortable attire will allow our professional therapist to effectively work on your muscles.

How Can Massage Therapy Boost My Immune System?

Massage therapy at Nava Health & Vitality Center may enhance your immune system. It promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension, and improves lymphatic drainage—all of which support better circulation and reduce stress, strengthening immune function. Integrated with your personalized health plan, massage therapy is part of our holistic Nava Method™ designed to optimize your overall wellness.
