Swedish Massage incorporates long, flowing, and kneading strokes that will soothe your aches and reduce your stress. This classic European style of massage and relaxing ambiance of the massage room will relieve your tension and renew your sense of wellbeing.
Deep Tissue massage is a massage type for those with chronic pain and muscle tension. Often times this technique is used for those suffering from sports injuries, whiplash or car accident injuries. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the muscle fibers. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, overuse syndrome, postural problems such as forward head posture, or recovery from acute and chronic injuries.
Hot Stone Massage
Experience the luxurious deep warmth of a Swedish Massage combined with heated stones. The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
Sports massage focuses on a specific muscle group. Depending on the needs of the athlete, a variety of techniques are used including classic Swedish strokes, cross-fiber friction, pressure-point work, and joint mobilization; and stretches may also be used. This special form of massage is typically used before, during, and after athletic events to prepare the athlete for peak performance, or to drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and to prevent injuries.
From a simple shoulder or foot massage while seated in a wheelchair, to a careful Swedish massage at an elder’s home or facility. Massage offers a gentle touch of TLC. Geriatric massage can be especially helpful for maintaining and improving overall health as we age. It also has been shown to enhance blood circulation, improve flexibility, reduce the pain of arthritis, increase joint mobility, relieve anxiety and provide comfort, especially to touch deprived elderly clients.
(Helpful Wellness Tip: Many clients who use geriatric massage have a friend or family member join them for their first visit to ensure they have a comfortable and relaxing experience. You may decide what amount of clothing you prefer to wear during your massage. Throughout the session, you will be properly draped or covered-only the area being worked on will be exposed.)
