This integrative approach focuses on the deeper layers of connective tissue and muscles to reduce chronic pain, break up scar tissue, rehabilitate injured muscles and relieve chronic stress. A variety of techniques such as trigger point therapy, cross fiber friction and myofascial release are used to target areas with defined pain and tension. Trigger points, adhesions and shortened fascia reduce mobility and blood flow, leading to the accumulation of toxins which causes pain. These areas are usually sensitive because of the dysfunction that is found in the tissues and the techniques used however, pressure will always remain within your comfort level.
This popular type of massage, also known as relaxation massage improves circulation and flexibility, decreases muscle tension, and promotes an overall sense of well-being. Long gliding strokes, circular kneading, gentle rocking, joint range of motion, and light stretching are some techniques that are used to relax your muscles and soothe your mind from stress. Applied pressure can be light or firm depending on your needs.
Pre - Natal Massage
Massage therapy is a great way to reduce the physical and emotional stresses that a mother-to-be experiences during pregnancy. Many discomforts of pregnancy such as neck and low back tension, sciatica pain, aching hip joints and generalized stress can be alleviated with a Pre-Natal Massage. Most pregnant women can comfortably lie face-down during the first trimester of pregnancy. During the second and third trimesters, face-up and side-lying positions are utilized. Soft, supportive cushions are used for maximum comfort ensuring a truly relaxing experience.
Myofascial Release Massage
Fascia is a connective tissue woven throughout our entire body. When fascia is in a dysfunctional state (hard, rigid) it can hold muscles in a chronic shortened position causing tension, pain and decreased range of motion. Myofascial Release Massage restores fascia to a healthier state (soft, pliable) lengthening shortened tissue, thus relieving areas of tension and pain; and increase in range of motion. Long, deep strokes combined with active (client moves joint) and passive (practitioner moves joint) range of motion techniques, melts fascia providing positive results that can be felt immediately.
