RELAXATION & DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Swedish Relaxation Massage
Swedish Massage is what most people think of when they hear massage.  Swedish massage uses a variety of techniques that are specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones while rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart.  The main purpose is to increase the oxygen flow in blood and release toxins from muscles. Swedish massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other metabolic wastes. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is highly suggested for stress management. 

Structural Deep Tissue Massage
Structural Massage uses deep tissue massage techniques to access the deeper tissues of the body as well as the myofascial connective tissues of the body to ease restrictions and allow for greater mobility and range of motion.  Structural massage is especially effective in relieving pain from repetitive stress injuries and overuse injuries.  Structural massage is performed in conjunction with regular stretches or other exercises that the client does outside of the massage session.

NeuroMassage Therapy:
NeuroMassage incorporates massage techniques to relax the nervous systems in our body by making changes in the state of neural networks (pain thresholds, muscular tension levels, organ function and emotional state). The NeuroMassage technique activates the electrical energy of the nervous system through subtle and gentle strokes, combined with complete relaxation.

Myofascial Release Therapy
Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on manual therapy technique that uses sustained pressure into restrictions in the fascial system to eliminate pain, and restore motion and function to the body.

The word “myofascial" is derived from the Greek word "myo", which means "muscle," and the word "fascia". Fascia is the thin layer system of connective tissue in the body that interpenetrates every muscle, bone, nerve, artery, vein, organ and cell in the body.

Adhesions and scar tissue are broken down using specific hands on techniques, causing increased mobility, improved strength and decreased pain.
