- Targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury.
- This is a type of massage focused on treating pain, soft tissue aches and injuries related to sports and athletes at every level. This technique can be beneficial in improving relaxation, decreasing muscle stiffness and decreasing blood pressure and heart rate. Increased range of motion and improved muscle flexibility are also benefits that can be gained.
- A gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body. Using this soft touch, restrictions are released in the soft tissues that surround the central nervous system. It can be effective for a wide range of problems associated with pain and dysfunction. Other techniques may include Ear Candling, Energy Work, Raindrop Therapy, Reiki, SomatoEmotional Release and Visceral Manipulation.
Lymph Drainage Therapy
- A gentle technique that works through the body’s lymphatic system to activate the body fluid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems.
- Myofascial Release is used to equalize muscle tension throughout the body. Unequal muscle tension can compress nerves and muscles causing pain. Progress is measured by a decrease in the patient’s pain and by an improvement in overall posture.
- This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system. Neuromuscular massage therapy works to stabilize low levels of neurological activity to maintain normal function and overall health.
- Massage therapists use long smooth strokes, kneading and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil.
