Injury treatment, Wellness and Relaxation Massage
Swedish massage is the term for relaxation massage. Swedish massage follows a pattern of warming, lifting, and stretching the muscle tissue, as well as increasing circulation.
Deep Tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of the muscle and soft tissues of the body. It can be used to target a specific spot or the entire length of a muscle. Deep tissue massage is applied by using a slow, controlled, and steady motion with moderate to firm pressure.
Pregnancy massage is an amazingly effective way to support both mother and baby during a time of growth and transition. Massage gives the mother a chance to rest, rejuvenate, and promote balance in the ever changing stages of pregnancy. Along with reducing stress, it can help prevent and alleviate common low back and hip pain associated with the extra weight pulling and stretching of muscles on the front of the body.
Myofascial Release and Structural Integration supports and releases the body’s natural pattern of connective tissue, or fascia, within the layers of skin, muscle and even bone. Poor posture or injury can cause restriction within the fascia, which can lead to decreased range of motion and stress on the body.
Sports Massage is meant to support the body during athletic training, before or after athletic events, and is overall a beneficial technique for invigorating muscles and preventing injuries. It uses a combination of active releases, pin-and-stretch, rhythmic compressions.
Hot Stone Massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones expand blood vessels, which encourage blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
