Tired of getting the same cookie cutter massage, and looking for real help with pain or deep tension from knowledgeable body experts? Try a Therapeutic massage. This blended approach brings the best of our in-house expertise to the table for you to make real progress on deep-seated overuse patterns.
Therapeutic massage incorporate a number of highly effective muscle and myofascial techniques to help provide relief for spasmed muscles and to break up muscle adhesions.
Our therapists use sports and deep tissue massage, active muscle release techniques, myofascial and trigger point work, as well as assisted stretching. They may also include education about self-maintenance techniques that you can take with you to amplify your positive results.
This massage can be shorter and focus on specific target areas, although a whole-body approach is always most effective for long-term relief.
Get out of your head and back in touch with the self! In this Swedish-style massage, we loosen tight muscles and stretch connective tissue using an effluerge stroke, a free flowing and gliding movement toward the heart. Using light to medium constant pressure.
Physical benefits include improved blood circulation, calming of the nervous system, loosening of the joints and improved range of motion. Clients also report mental relaxation, improved quality of sleep, and general improved sense of well being.
Spend hours at a computer or have repetitive movements at work? Feel like stretching just doesn’t release tension and your body is ... stuck?
Deep Tissue Massage techniques are designed to release hypertonic tissue in deeper muscle structures as well as in the connective tissue called fascia. Deep tissue bodywork incorporates slow, specific and deliberate strokes that move both with, and against, the grain of the muscle. It works with you and your body, never using forced pressure, but instead using continuous pressure applied until muscles start to release.
As with therapeutic massage, treatment may take more than one session, depending on how long spasm or adhesion has been present in the area.
