Deep Tissue Therapeutic Massage

Used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains

Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue in your body by using firm pressure and slow, deliberate strokes. People who suffer from chronic pain, high blood pressure, or muscle injury and overuse tend to benefit most from deep tissue massage. Deep tissue technique uses slower, deeper strokes. The massage professional may even use specially designed massage tools or their elbow in certain areas to apply pressure. Be sure to communicate openly with your massage therapist about the pressure they’re using and your comfort level. Some pain is to be expected, but it should be manageable and should never feel like you’re “bracing” your muscles. Deep tissue massage helps to break up scar tissue, which is often the cause of continuous pain and stiffness after surgery.

Relaxation / Swedish Massage

Promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension

Swedish massage uses a system of long gliding strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of muscles, generally in the direction of blood flow towards the heart and sometimes combined with active and passive movements of the joints. It is used to promote general relaxation, improve circulation and range of motion, and relieve muscle tension. Swedish massage, like many other types of massage, has many benefits that not only provide positive physical changes, but mental and emotional changes, as well. Stress and pain relief, increased circulation, relaxation, and complementary alternative medicine are just some of the benefits that come with regular Swedish massage. If you are in need of one or more of these benefits, visiting a certified, experienced Swedish massage therapist may help bring you closer to overall health and happiness.

Massage with Visceral and Neural Manipulation

What is visceral and neural manipulation?

“Viscera” relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the intestines, liver, and kidneys. Visceral Manipulation is designed to provide pain relief by treating problems with the movement of our organs relative to each other and the rest of our bodies. It assesses and treats the structural relationships between organs and their attachments to the ligaments and fascia. Surgical scars, adhesions, illness, posture, or injury can cause strains in the connective tissues of this system. Our body compensates for these strains, developing functional or structural problems that can be far from the site of restriction.

Neural Manipulation assists the free movement of the nerves in their surroundings; that is, in relation to neighbouring muscles, fascia, narrow passages in the aponeurosis, organs and bones. A nerve can only function properly when it is able to move freely in its surrounding tissues.

Both Visceral and Neural Manipulation are manual therapy practices that use light, gentle, and precise manipulation forces that encourage alignment, mobility, tone and own natural mechanisms of the visceral organs, the nerves, and their supporting connective tissues. Both manipulations are especially helpful in those suffering from trauma, postural strain, and chronic stress or pain.

These manipulations have the possibility to affect the normal physiological function of specific nerves and organs, their function and related systems and the structural integrity of the entire body. Little and precisely directed manipulation usually creates the greatest effects due to the gentle and often highly reactive nature of neural and visceral tissues. The therapist feels tension that is within the client’s body, any altered or decreased motion within the visceral and neural systems, as well as patterns of restriction they have created throughout the body.

This therapy can help facilitate the body’s ability to adapt and repair itself to health and homeostasis.

Hot Stone Massage

Melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness, increase circulation

Smooth stones are heated and then lubricated with oil or essential oils where the therapeutic effects of heat are used to relax muscles more deeply. Used as an extension of the therapist’s hands, the use of massage stones induces deep relaxation and provides a unique experience many find to be tremendously calming and centering. With hot stone massage, tension melts away as a result of heat, allowing your massage therapist to access deeper layers of muscle. This results in a relaxation of muscle tension that accompanies a host of other benefits including: Improved circulation Increased metabolism Chronic pain relief Fewer muscle spasms Improved joint flexibility Improved mood.
