Our massage is a Swedish massage base. We utilize other styles of massage to facilitate improved reaction in the muscle. These include trigger point therapy, deep tissue, and stretching. Pressure is directly controlled by the client.
Swedish massage is a smooth massage that uses pressure and gliding. It removes toxins and brings in clean oxygenated blood to revitalize the muscle. Cross fiber friction and percussion are often used to break up adhesions and relax muscle.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Points are areas of tension in the belly of the muscle that build up over time from physical, mental or emotional stress. A common term for them is "knots". Pressure is focused on trigger points to release their tension. It can sometimes be painful but the results can be long lasting. Communication with the client is once again important.
Deep Tissue Massage
This style is used in our massage to help with chronic stress issues due to repetitive motions, misalignment and injury. This style goes deeper into the layers of tissue. Communication with the client during deep tissue is crucial to keep pressures at a comfortable level.
Massage during pregnancy can relieve joint pain, ease stress and improve relaxation. We work with each expectant mother's specific needs during this time of dramatic physical and emotional changes.
