Massage Therapy

Swedish

Swedish massage is the most well known form of massage therapy practiced today. Smooth, gliding strokes toward the heart facilitate increased circulation, removal of toxins from muscle tissue, improved immune system function, and a deep sense of relaxation among many additional benefits.

 

Deep Tissue Massage

The techniques used in Deep Tissue massage are comparable to those used in Swedish massage but are performed with significantly deeper pressure. This therapy is beneficial to those who experience chronic muscular tension and pain, are recovering from an injury, of may have pain attributed to inflammation of fascia (soft tissue that covers organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels), tendons, or muscle tissue itself. The deep pressure used also promotes the release of serotonin and oxytocin, resulting in enhanced relaxation and sense of mental wellbeing.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger points are formed when the soft tissue covering muscles experiences stress from overuse or trauma. Tissue may tear and adhere to each other, forming painful solid nodules within the muscle that often results in pain that radiates from the trigger point, known as referral pain.

Trigger point therapy uses several rounds of sustained isolated pressure followed by release directly onto the nodule. This modality is most effective with the participation of the recipient as the precise location of the trigger point is determined and then through the use of deep breathing techniques during the sequences of pressure and release.

 

Prenatal

Prenatal massage is recommended by many within the medical field as a safe option to relieve many common discomforts experienced during pregnancy. Modifications are made as pregnancy progresses in order to ensure the wellbeing of both mother and baby, which include receiving massage in a side lying position after 22 weeks or using the assistance of a cushion under the right hip while laying on your back, allowing massage to adapt throughout all three trimesters.

 

Prenatal massage is shown to decrease muscle and joint pain, relieve headaches, improve sleep, and reduce static nerve compression associated with low back pain. Strokes that promote the movement of lymphatic fluid and blood flow are instrumental in alleviating swelling in the extremities and improving fatigue.

If your pregnancy is high-risk, it is important to always err on the side of caution and speak to your OBGYN or midwife and obtain proper clearance before receiving prenatal treatment.

Sports Massage

Each athlete is unique, requiring a special focus to treat, maintain, or even prevent injury. Many factors contribute to the development of a sport specific massage plan. Looking at how an athlete runs or lifts during a workout can assist in the development a successful proactive maintenance strategy. Even what an athlete does as an everyday activity, such as what they do as a career and even a simple repetitive motion, can hinder their performance. Whether you are a college athlete, an avid workout fanatic, or even a work-oholic, take the time to “take care” of your body. Help that range of motion. Increase your squat. Reduce or prevent that delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS).

Geriatric Massage

Geriatric massage is specifically designed to benefit elderly clients as they strive to maintain their mobility and balance, while prevent reducing any depression and anxiety they may be experiencing. Gentle strokes with minimal pressure and friction are effective in alleviating some of the pain associated with arthritis and improves blood flow to the muscles of the extremities. As massage is not recommended for certain conditions, it is important to speak to your physician about any health issues or concerns you may have before moving forward with massage therapy.
