T herapeutic massage provides a number of health and wellness-related benefits. Each custom-tailored massage treatment works to restore, replenish, and relax aching muscles while nourishing the mind. Soothing techniques combined with attention to detail will provide you with the opportunity to unwind and renew your body.
A relaxation massage is designed to promote rejuvenation, enhance circulation, improve range of motion, relieve minor muscle pain, and assist in flushing metabolic waste products from tissues. Relaxation massage is recommended for those people who enjoy a full-body massage, moderate pressure, and whose treatment goals include overall health and wellness.
Deep Tissue Massage
A deep tissue massage is designed to address specific area of muscular tension, postural dysfunction, trigger points, myofascial adhesions, and scar tissue. It is often recommended for individuals who experience chronic pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and patients who have sustained physical injury. Deep tissue work is slow, deep, and specific, so a full body treatment is not always possible.
A sports massage uniquely combines circulatory techniques with specific deep tissue and neuromuscular work. It is recommended for athletes and people with moderate aches and pains who will benefit from a combination of treatment modalities.
A prenatal massage is similar to massage during non-pregnancy in terms of the goals (relaxation, pain relief, increased circulation & mobility, etc.). However, due to the changes undergone during pregnancy, modifications are made. To accommodate a growing belly, special pillows, positioning, and techniques are utilized to ensure comfort for both the expecting mother and baby. With increasing weight, a changing center of gravity and the many other changes associated with pregnancy, prenatal massage can help provide relief and a sense of well being that is much deserved.
