At our office we offer a wide variety of massage therapy techniques to meet your specific needs, including:
Swedish Massage Therapy uses a firm but gentle pressure. It is used to relax the body with long, flowing strokes, deep kneading. Nurturing, soothing, this improves general relaxation, circulation, increased range of motion (rom), relieves tension and stress.
Therapeutic Deep Tissue/Neuromuscular – Detailed work on individual muscle fibers for chronic, painful areas. Used as a preventative measure from injuries. Enhances muscle & joint function. Releases endorphins – body’s natural painkillers.
Relieves hard, fibrous muscles, improves lymphatic flow,
detoxifies, and releases adhesions.
Myofascial Release loosens adhesions within the fascia of the musculoskeletal system aiding in freer movement of individual muscles. Injuries, trauma, stress, and poor posture can cause restriction in fascia.
Trigger point therapy breaks the stress-tension-stress-pain cycle by eliminating trigger points in the body. Trigger points are highly irritable spots that refer pain and tingling.
Hot Stone – Turn tension into tranquility and experience new levels of relaxation. Heated basalt stones (Mexican beach pebble) melt away tension and help you connect with the healing energy of the earth. Feel your aches and pains replaced by warmth and tranquility.
Prenatal Massage is used to support the physiologic, structural, and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus. Nurturing and soothing, this massage is beneficial throughout the childbearing year because it aids in the relief of low back discomfort, supports ligament changes, eases water retention, and improves circulation. Body pillows are used for support.
Reflexology – The underlying theory behind reflexology is that there are “reflex” areas on the feet and hands that correspond to specific organs, glands, and other parts of the body. A scientific explanation is that the pressure may send signals that balance the nervous system and release endorphins.
Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is a specific type of subtle energy work in which healing is performed by the laying on of hands. It is excellent for assisting in the healing of any physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual issues of any kind.
