Massage Modalities

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage is the most common type of massage therapy practiced today. Smooth, gliding strokes toward the heart facilitate increased circulation, remove toxins from muscle tissue, improve immune system function, and create a sense of relaxation.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue massage techniques are comparable to Swedish massage but with significantly deeper pressure. This method benefits those with chronic muscular tension and pain, injury, or pain attributed to inflamed fascia (soft tissue that covers organs, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels), tendons, or muscle tissue. The deep pressure used promotes the release of serotonin and oxytocin, resulting in enhanced relaxation and mental wellbeing.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy is the treatment of tense and possibly painful areas in the soft tissue surrounding a stressed or injured muscle. Tissues may tear and adhere to each other, forming painful solid adhesions, resulting in referral pain radiating elsewhere. Manual Trigger Point Therapy uses several rounds of sustained isolated pressure applied directly onto the knot followed by a release. This modality is most effective with the participation of the recipient using deep breathing techniques throughout the treatment.

Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy can be incredibly physically, mentally, and emotionally taxing. Prenatal massage is a safe option to relieve many common discomforts experienced during pregnancy such as muscle and joint pain, headaches, loss of sleep, erratic hormone levels, stress and anxiety, sciatic nerve compression, and low back or hip pain. Gentle strokes promote movement of lymphatic fluid and increase blood flow to alleviate swelling in the extremities and improve fatigue. Modifications are made as your pregnancy progresses to ensure the wellbeing of you and baby. If your pregnancy is high-risk, speak to your OBGYN or midwife to get clearance before receiving prenatal treatment.

Sports Massage

Each athlete is unique and requires an individualized approach to treat or prevent future injury. In order to develop a successful, proactive treatment plan, our massage therapists will assess how you move through your workout or sport specific movements as well as every day activities. Repetitive motion, if performed incorrectly, can hinder performance and even cause injury. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, play a sport competitively or recreationally, or just hit the gym regularly, sports massage can increase range of motion, reduce or prevent delayed onset muscle soreness or lead to a new personal record.

Senior Massage

Senior massages are designed for people of advanced age. The gentle strokes with minimal pressure and friction can reduce complications from diabetes and heart disease by increasing blood circulation to the extremities. Massage provides many physical benefits such as better quality and length of sleep, accelerated healing, and improved mobility and balance as well as mental health benefits such as stress relief and reduction of depression and anxiety.
