Types of Massage

Deep Tissue – Massage that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. Helps with chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation; also relieves pain caused by arthritis and tendonitis.

Sports Massage – Manipulation of foundation tissues directed specifically at the muscles used in athletic activities. This is a deep muscle massage often used around the joints. It is excellent when preparing for sports activities or after a strenuous workout.

Kinesio Taping – Kinesio Taping gives support and stability to your joints and muscles without affecting circulation and range of motion. It is also used for Preventive Maintenance, Edema, and Pain Management. Kinesio Taping is a technique based on the body’s own natural healing process.

Therapeutic/Orthopedic – Systematic manipulation of soft tissues of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm and stress; also promotes health and wellness.

Muscle Release Technique – is derived from a technique taught in Europe for years. The ‘common sense’ approach of this technique has been applied to chronic and acute soft tissue problems. The results have been profoundly successful. Muscle Release Technique is the #1 Treatment for Soft Tissue Injuries.

Trigger Point Therapy – Trigger points are accumulations of waste products around a nerve receptor. They form in muscles that have been overused or injured due to an accident or surgery. To diffuse a trigger point, static compression (pressure) is applied until the muscle releases and is then stretched. This action flushes toxins and calms the nerves.

TMJ Release – This technique includes intra-oral technique as well as a Myofascial approach, and stretching, to release the fascial restrictions and trigger points that may be causing TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT SYNDROME (TMJ).

Swedish – Energizes the body by stimulation circulations. The many benefits may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions and improve circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.

Reflexology – Acupressure points on the hands & feet aid the body in healing. It involves manipulation of specific relax areas in the foot & hands that correspond to other parts of the body.
