Swedish Massage: One of the most common methods of massage. The technique promotes total body relaxation and stress relief and is gentler than deep tissue massage. Great for people wanting relaxation and muscle tension.
Deep Tissue: This method targets deeper layers of muscles and fascia than Swedish massage. May be best for fitness/athletic enthusiast or people with chronic pain.
Assisted Flexibility: This can include assisted passive stretching, proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitated (PNF) stretching, and/or active isolated techniques. These techniques aim to improve joint mobility and flexibility, improve circulation and stress relief. Great for athletes, individuals who sit a vast majority of the day, and/or feel tightness throughout the body.
Hot/ Cold Stone Therapy: The use of therapeutic warm basalt or cold marble stones into the massage session. Can be combined in a session for contrast.
Warm stones aid in relaxing the muscles and surrounding connective tissues by increasing vasodilation of capillaries and blood flow. Feel completely relaxed and let the stress melt away.
Cold stone therapy is about applying cooler temperatures to the superficial and deep tissues which in turn will help relieve pain and inflammation. Cold stones are great for injuries, inflammation, pain, and headaches. Feel revitalized after a session.
Myofascial Release: Fascia is a connective tissue that surrounds and infuses with organs, muscles, bones, nerves, and blood vessels down to the cellular level (John F. Barnes, P.T.). Through trauma, poor posture, and inflammatory processes, fascia can solidify, shorten, and therefore manifest a loss of mobility and functionality (Barnes, J, P.T.). This session provides soft tissue mobilization and various myofascial release techniques taught by John F. Barnes, P.T. to target and release restrictions. Usually, combined with other techniques mentioned.
Sports Massage: The goal of this session is to help athletes and fitness enthusiasts recover from bouts of physical activity. Sports massage aims to improves circulation, promote relaxation, reduce pain, help restore physical and emotional fitness, decrease spasms, help with mobility, or break adhesions.
Orthopedic Massage: This type of massage is a therapeutic style in which it focuses on the muscles and soft tissues surrounding joints. In general, it is very specific to an area that the client is seeking better range motion and/or reduced pain. This form can be combined with other techniques.
Pregnancy Massage: This massage is a gentle form that aims to reduce common symptoms due to pregnancy such as swelling, muscle aches and joint pain.
