The Types of Massage
Swedish Massage focuses on the movement of blood and lymph throughout the body using gliding strokes, friction, and kneading. Swedish massage is excellent for improving circulation, boosting the immune system, and releasing tension/tightness in the muscles. It also boosts the levels of serotonin in your brain and decreases cortisol (the stress hormone), which can aid in fighting depression and anxiety.
Deep Tissue Massage
Similar in technique to Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage uses broader, stronger strokes to relieve severe tension located within the deeper muscles and connective tissues of the body. This massage can often be quite intense, but can result in relief from chronic musculoskeletal problems or injuries.
Neuromscular (Trigger Point) Therapy
Trigger Points can often cause referred pain, numbness, or tingling in the body. After searching the muscle for these Trigger Points, precise pressure is applied to release tension and pain. This can be an intense procedure, but often results in better strength and mobility with a decrease in pain.
Myofascial Release is a manual technique that stretches the muscles of the body to break up thickened layers of connective tissue (myofascia) and restore mobility. Excessive amounts of myofascial buildup can cause restrictions in the muscles, reducing movement and causing pain.
Cupping (The “Phelps” treatment)
After the 2016 Summer Olympics, many people became curious of this treatment after noting that Gold Medalist Michael Phelps (as well as many other Olympic athletes) competed with large purple marks on their skin. These marks were created by a technique known as “Cupping” or “Chinese cup massage.” It is a technique that uses a slight vacuum to lift the skin and promote blood and lymph flow.
Using the volatile oils distilled from plants and resins, aromatherapy has effects on the body mentally and physically. Essential Oils can promote relaxation, reduce inflammation, and increase circulation. During this treatment, the client can choose up to 3 oils for a personal blend. These oils are diluted and used during the entire massage session. This treatment can be an add-on to any massage or given as a stand-alone treatment.
(Please be sure to make your therapist aware of any health issues or changes in your intake form before choosing aromatherapy, as certain oils may be contraindicated for your condition)
Hot Stone Massage
Our finest Basalt stones, smoothed by water and time, are warmed and incorporated into a full-body massage. The stones’ high iron content allows them to retain heat, which is then used to release tension stored in the muscles.
This is a very subtle technique that works with the natural rhythm and flow of the body’s cerebrospinal fluid to correct imbalances and boost immune function. It has also been used to relieve pain from migraines, TMJ disorders, and Fibromyalgia.
