Massage Therapy: Relaxation For Your Body
In the United States, back pain has become public ailment no. 1. For many people, back pain considerably impairs their ability to do and enjoy the things they perform on a daily basis. Massage has proven to be an effective means of preventing back and joint pain. Our selection of massage options will help you live a more relaxed and pain free life.
Our massage therapy specialties include: Therapeutic/Innovative approach: Since we all know that each individual has specific needs, a combination or "Therapeutic Treatment" is often timesrecommended for clients. By combining various techniques we can better ensure that the total body experience felt by the client is not only relaxing, but addresses specific areas of concern. Whether it is a combination of Swedish and Sports or Deep Tissue with Acupressure, be sure to discuss your needs with us prior to your session.
Swedish: The most well-known type of massage. If you have never had a massage before, or are looking for something relaxing, this is the perfect place to start. Swedish Massages are full body massages using anywhere from feather-light to extreme deep pressure. This is typically done at a slow, gentle pace, with some variances based on the individual Therapist's style. .
Deep Tissue:If you require deeper focused work and don't require a full body massage, you may want to request a Deep Tissue. A variation of Swedish Massage, some clients will comment on momentary discomfort, but then complete relief of their muscle stiffness and pain.
Sports: Although widely popular among athletes, this is not just for the intensively active. Those with injuries, chronic pain, restricted range of motion or who are beginning a new work-out regime, may want to consider this modality. The Therapist generally concentrates on specific problem areas, stimulating circulation of blood and lymph fluids. In some cases trigger point therapy is used to break down the "knots" and stretching is incorporated to help with range of motion.
Other Treatments Include:
- Reflexology: Generally confused with Massage Techniques, Reflexology works very differently. Instead of manipulating soft tissues of the body, Reflexologists target areas of the body through the use of reflex maps of points found in the feet, hands, face and ears. Using unique techniques such as thumb or finger walking, responses are sent throughout
Reiki/Energy Work: Reiki provides a means to balance energy fields and Chakras to create conditions for the body's natural healing system to function. Practitioners assist clients to heal themselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically by a simple laying on of hands. Energy is channeled, allowing it to flow where needed to bring the energy centers into alignment. Although the Practitioner plays an instrumental role, it is ultimately up to the client to manifest harmony and balance in their life. Reiki should be used in conjunction with other forms of Therapeutic Treatments in order to be effective.
Elemental: Using the four elements of Water, Fire, Air and Earth. This relaxing treatment can help bring a client's mind and body back into harmony. Variations of how the elements are incorporated may be used in order to target the needs of the individual.
