Massage Therapy can provide numerous benefits including improving and maintaining overall health and wellness. Massage can relax tight muscle tissue, which can lead to a decrease in nerve and joint compression and improve range of motion. This can help to relieve and/or eliminate your aches and pains. Our Registered Massage Therapist currently offers Traditional Swedish Massage, Therapeutic, Deep Tissue, and Prenatal massage techniques.
Traditional Swedish massage
Traditional Swedish massage is the foundation to most massages; it is best known for the basic strokes of Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction and Tapotement. Your therapist will use long, soft gliding strokes that will contour the body. Swedish massage strokes help to increase circulation and promote a state of relaxation.
Therapeutic massage is used for both relaxation as well as remedial massage. The massage therapist puts the client in a relaxed state while working out some of the muscle issues a person may be experiencing. This type of massage is used to relieve pain, and maintain wellness of the muscles.
Deep tissue massage is when the therapist will focus mainly on one troubled area. Sustained pressure and deep, slow strokes will be used by the therapist. Deep tissue massage helps to break up scar tissue that can form after an injury or strain, which can help promote healing, increased range of motion and general wellness of your muscles.
There are many benefits to prenatal massage; it is known to decrease stress, reduce anxiety and symptoms of depression as well as maintain muscle wellness throughout your pregnancy. Prenatal massage addresses the discomfort pregnant women may experience due to hormonal changes throughout pregnancy. The therapist uses a light stroke called effleurage which will put a client in a relaxed state. Effleurage is known to help relieve some tension the client may have however the therapist is unable to apply a lot of pressure during a prenatal massage.
