Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Sports Massage focuses on the muscles relevant to a particular athletic activity. It is usually more vigorous and deeper than Swedish Massage. On athletes, minor injuries and lesions occur due to overexertion and/or repetitive movement. This technique can break down these minor injuries quickly and effectively. Sports Massage will help prepare the athlete for peak performance, drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and stimulate the lymphatic system.
- Deep Tissue
Deep Tissue Massage improves body alignment and freedom of movement. Deep Tissue releases chronic patterns of tension in the body through long and short, slow strokes. Deeper pressure is applied on the specific tensed area by using the forearms, heel of hands, elbows or specific instruments. The amount and type of pressure depends on the specific needs of the individual.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.
- Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a specialty massage that uses smooth, heated stones. They are often basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well. It is a deeply soothing, relaxing form of massage. The heat helps release tight muscles.
