Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage is the manipulation of superficial layers of muscle and connective tissue to enhance their function and promote relaxation and well-being.

Therapeutic massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. The massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles.

 

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury.

 

Sports Massage

A group of massage techniques specifically designed to aid in athletic performance. Sports massage can include Swedish massage, cross-fiber friction massage, deep compression massage, trigger point therapy, range of motion exercises, and facilitated stretches.

Sports Massage can be conducted pre-event, inter-event, and post-event for maintenance and to assist in injury prevention. Sports Massage can assist in decreasing recovery time for muscle pain and fatigue.

 

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is similar to Therapeutic massage in technique, pressure is often lighter than Therapeutic or Deep Tissue Massage and is intended to assist in stress relief and relaxation. Massage strokes are typically long and slow. Calm your mind, calm your body, sink into the softness of the table to unwind from your stressful day.

 

Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage a modality in which smooth Volcanic Stones are  heated and are placed onto specific points on the body (such as the back, hands, etc.) and others are held by the massage therapist and used to work the muscles.

Hot Stone massage offers deep relaxation and stress reduction. The heat of the stones permeates deep into the body soothing and relaxing muscle and fascia.

 

Reiki Energy Healing & Balancing

Reiki uses a technique commonly called palm healing or hands-on-healing. Through the use of this technique, universal energy (Rei) in the form of qi (ki) is channeled through the palms, which activates the body’s ability for self-healing and a state of equilibrium. Reiki is a non-invasive, gentle technique to align the chakras of the body into a state of balance that promotes the body to heal as well as assist in promoting a state of being centered. Reiki can be performed by a practitioner through the means of gently placing their hands on the affected areas or by hovering their hands above the body and sending the energy into the energetic body of the patient. Reiki is deeply relaxing and effective for reducing stress.
