Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage requires the application of slow firm strokes and deep rhythmical kneading. Our expert deep tissue massage therapists are trained to use techniques such as kneading, myo-fascial release, and therapist assisted stretching. Each session is always followed with lots of drainage techniques.
Deep tissue massage therapy is used to release tight muscles and deep seated muscular aches and joint pain. This technique brings about the realignment of posture and restores proper range of motion. You can also expect an increase in circulation and range of motion. This is one of most popular massage therapy services.
Neuro Muscular Technique Massage
A massage technique that balances the body’s central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system. The goal of this massage is to help relieve the pain and dysfunction by understanding and alleviating the underlying cause.
Neuromuscular technique is used to locate and release spasms and hypercontraction in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, rebuild the strength of injured tissue, assist venous and lymphatic flow, and restore postural alignment, proper body mechanics, and flexibility to the tissues.
The purpose of sport massage therapy is to give the athlete an “edge” over the competition by enhancing performance and recovery. Techniques include proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation, myo-fascial release, deep tissue massage, and therapist assisted stretching. We tailor sport specific treatments to the needs of the athlete based on their individual goals and/or weaknesses. Please advise your sports massage therapist of your next performance if you are receiving pre-event massage.
Trigger Point Treatment
Trigger Point is a type of bodywork that is aimed at removing knots (trigger points) that are often found in taut bands of muscle and fascia. These knots may be responsible for a large variety of physical problems.
The treatment can be a combination of general massage (superficial and deep strokes) and localized pressure techniques to areas affected with knots. These pressure techniques are the most common method used to remove knots. Once they are removed, it allows the affected muscle to return to a state of normalcy, which almost always results in greatly improved muscle performance, as well as reduction or total elimination of the referred pain.
Pre/Post Pregnancy Massage
The massage table will be set up so you will lie in a semi-reclining position. This is not only really comfortable, but safe for baby. Also you will turn from side to side to do your back and hips, there are body pillows, wedge pillows and extra padding to make you comfortable.
The room setting for a pregnancy massage is much like a typical massage, the room will have low lightening, you will lie on a warm extra padded table. Soft music will be in the background to help you relax and drift off. The focus of this massage is to induce a state of deep relaxation while decreasing pain and discomfort.
