a massage therapist will have a brief consultation with the client prior to the session. this consultation will allow the therapist to better understand the needs and expectations of the client and thus, cater the massage in terms of pressure and technique to address those needs.
this is a light pressured massage designed to promote circulation and relaxation. the pressure strokes are applied toward the heart in a smooth rhythmatic motion.
this approach is used to release chronic patterns of muscular tenision using specific strokes, direct pressure, or friction. often the movements are directed against the grain of the muscles (cross-fiber) using the fingers, thumbs,or elbows. this is applied with greater pressure and at deeper levels than swedish massage and that is why it'called deep tissue. it is also more specific. deep tissue lends itself to being more focused on problem areas.
this is a form of deep massage that applies concentrated finger pressure specifically to individual muscles. this is a very detailed approach, used to increase blood flow to release trigger points, intense knots of muscle tension that refer pain to other areas of the body (they become trigger points when they seem to trigger a pain pattern of referred pain). this form of massage helps to break the cycle of spasmand pain. most often used in pain control.
this uses techniques similar to swedish and deep tissue but more specifically designed to deal with the needs of athletes and the effects of athletic performance on the body. sports massage is used before and after events, as part of an athlete's training program, and to promote healing from injuries. client may need to bring a pair for assisted stretching.
the experience of a pregnancy is like no other. this is a time of great joy and excitement, however, this experience can also prove to be stressful. this massage uses techniques to help relieve aches and pains, enhance the function of muscles and improves circulation and general body tone. massage is great for relieving physical fatigue and discomfort of the expectant mother. to insure the ultimate in relaxation, specific techniques and propping will be used throughout the session. we offer both sideline propping and for mom to lay face down with our special and safe cushioning system. a consultation is required before the session to determine the type of propping required.
