A classic European style of massage, Swedish massage utilizes long, flowing strokes to promote relaxation and relieve tension.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue massage goes beyond the superficial layers of muscle to address chronic pain and tension, while utilizing specific, focused pressure to areas of discomfort to increase mobility and decrease pain.
Myofasical Release is a technique that specifically addresses both superficial and deeper fascia to release restrictions and increase mobility as well as support proper structural alignment throughout the body. It is done without the use of crème or oil and utilizes very slow, moderate to deep pressure to dis-adhere fascial restrictions.
Trigger Point Therapy
“Trigger-point” is the term we use for a localized point of pain that has a radiating pain effect around the surrounding tissues. Typically caused by layers of soft tissue that are stuck together, this specific form of massage therapy aims to dis-adhere these areas and relieve the pain they cause.
Perinatal massage addresses the specific needs of new and expectant mothers. Safe during all three trimesters, massage helps decrease the common aches and pains associated with pregnancy and motherhood as well as promote overall relaxation and balance. Proper bolstering and cushions will be used to assure your comfort and safety throughout the treatment.
The word “Shiatsu” is Japanese for “finger-pressure” and works to mobilize energy, or Qi, through meridians in the body. Based on Traditional Chinese Medicine these are the same meridians which acupuncturists address with needles. With Shiatsu, we use finger, thumb and palm pressure as well as stretching and mobilization techniques to stimulate balance and harmony throughout the body and it’s systems. This type of massage is done through clothing, so loose fitting, light fabrics are best.
Reflexology is thought to address the different areas of the body and its systems, through reflex zones on the feet and hands. This can help to reduce pain and increase function throughout the body while creating a deep sense of relaxation.
Reflexology is available as an addition to your massage treatment or on it’s own as a 60 minute session only.
