Swedish massage therapy is the best-known type of bodywork performed today with the goal of relaxing the entire body. This type of massage is very beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, improving circulation and flexibility, and over all stress relief.
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but uses a deeper pressure with the goal of relieving chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascial tissue.
Trigger point therapy is designed to reduce the source of pain through cycles of specific pressure and release. This benefits releasing restricted areas in the muscles and alleviating pain. Sometimes clients experience relief after just one treatment, however multiple treatments may be needed depending on muscle response.
Myofascial Release is a very effective technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the myofascial tissue restrictions, to reduce pain and restore mobility. This is especially helpful for chronic conditions, as well as rehabilitative therapy.
Swe-Thai is a unique style of massage that combines medical massage with specific, advanced soft-tissue therapies. Swe-Thai is performed on the table and was designed specifically to treat general neck and back conditions.
Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin; practitioners believe this mobilizes blood flow in order to promote healing. Suction is created using heat (fire) or mechanical devices (hand or electrical pumps).
Structural integration is based on the idea that the entire structural order of the body needs to be realigned and balanced around a “central vertical line” representing gravity’s influence. During a structural integration session, the therapist will massage areas outward and in toward the heart and vital organs. The manipulation of the fascia (the system that connects all the body’s systems) is thought to free up areas of congestion within the body. These areas of congestion have been determined as trouble spots that collect sickness and disease, and harbor injury. The structural integration of the body allows for greater freedom and ease of movement, in addition to better overall health.
Bamboo therapy is deep tissue work that releases tension and eases knots through the use of hollow bamboo canes/stalks of varying lengths and diameters. This modality uses a blend of Swedish massage and the benefits of soothing heat.
Pregnancy massage is a complementary choice for prenatal care. It helps reduce stress and promotes overall wellness by alleviating many of the normal discomforts of pregnancy (i.e. backaches, headaches, leg cramps, and swelling).
