Swedish Relaxation Swedish massage uses long, flowing strokes that have shown to induce a calming effect and be helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness.
Therapeutic Massage Therapeutic massage is goal oriented and targets specific areas of soft tissue to restore health, facilitate healing and balance muscle tissue for proper postural movement. We use continual assessments and thorough charting to help establish goals and track progress. This is not a luxury, but a continuation of your personal training regimen.
Deep Tissue Deep tissue techniques are generally designed for more focused massage work. Working a specific joint, muscle or muscle group, the practitioner can access deeper layers of the soft tissue. Starting superficially and easing into the depth of the muscle slowly often allows more movement.
Hot Stone Heated stones were used by Egyptians, Native Americans and in Lomilomi massage. When heated stones are used, muscles relax allowing the massage therapist to work deeper into the muscle. Stones are heated in hot water and are placed under the back, along both sides of the spine, and on top of the torso. Heated stones coated in oil are then used directly in the hands of the therapist delivering various massaging strokes.
Reflexology Reflexology involves the manipulation of pressure points on the feet that are stimulated by thumb and finger walking, as well as static pressure.
Myofascial Release Myofascial release refers to the manual massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia, integument, and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and equilibrioception. Injuries, stress, trauma, overuse and poor posture can cause restriction to fascia. This is usually done by applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling.
