Our massage therapists combine many different massage techniques that target different levels of soft tissue to create a very unique and patient specific experience. These styles include:
A basic relaxing full body massage which may include a variety of massage strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve circulation. Swedish may also include range of motion stretching. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, and decreased stress and anxiety levels in the body.
Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve pain and muscle tension throughout the body. This type of massage is extremely beneficial because it reaches the deepest layer of muscles, fascia (connective tissue surrounding the joints) and tendons. The goal in deep tissue massage is to breakdown adhesions (tense areas within the muscle). Adhesions in the muscle are very important to address because they cause pain, inflammation and limit motion of the muscles and joints.
A trigger point is a painful nodule, or “knot”, located in the belly of a muscle that can be caused by stress, poor body nutrition and/or mechanics, repetitive motions of the same muscle, or various medical issues. They can be dispelled with direct application to the site, working within the client’s pain tolerance to relieve pressure.
Localized Pain Management & Relief:
Focuses on specific areas of the body that cause either acute or chronic pain, and applying pressure based on the client’s pain tolerance to the affected musculature, followed by stretching to aid in recovery.
Rejuvenation Face Massage:
This is a therapeutic relaxing massage technique for the face, neck, shoulders and scalp. We begin with small circles on the scalp followed by warm towels on the face and neck. The next 30 minutes are cleansing, toning and relaxing massage strokes using products designed for the face. Following this, more warm towels are applied and a Honey-Lift Masque is applied. The face is cleansed again and moisturized with crèmes which contain the finest natural products to nourish and protect the skin. The skin is our largest organ. This treatment helps to unblock stuck energy that creates facial holding patterns, improves lymph draining and enhance greater blood and oxygen flow for a beautiful glow. Enhance your skin’s natural beauty!
