This type of massage is very individualized and meets the needs that are of issue to you. If you have been dealing with a chronic area of pain, just recently had a new injury, or are trying to avoid surgery, this type of massage may help. A combination of Swedish, Trigger Point, and Myofascial Release techniques may be used. The therapist evaluates and determines the modalities that would be best utilized to treat your areas of concern.
Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain, increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood circulation and relief from pain.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment and soreness may last for two days after the session.
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from superficial aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility. If there are specific areas that need more focus due to a chronic issue or injury, a therapeutic massage session would be a better match.
Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of the elder community. It helps to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and also increase range of motion. If you find yourself within this population, geriatric massage may help you maintain and improve your overall health, as well as regain certain physical functions that have been reduced due to the process of aging. In addition, since many within the elder population don't typically receive enough physical touch, this massage can also help alleviate symptoms of loneliness or depression.
Pregnancy Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Pregnancy Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation. This massage is specifically tailored to each expectant mom and how she is currently feeling during that period of pregnancy.
