Deep Tissue Massage
Ever wish you could get more massage exactly where you need it most? Well look no further, this is the massage for you. These sessions are custom tailored to your needs and do not follow a timed format. Attention is given to the areas most in need as determined by you and the therapist through analysis of the body and your prior diagnoses as reported by your physician/physical therapist. Often stretches are performed to enhance the effectiveness of the sessions and are done to the tolerance of the particular client. A 45 minute session typically includes neck, shoulders, back, and hips but can be altered according to your needs. 90 minutes is a full body experience that you must try!
Massage is a great tool for athletes and all those who lead active lifestyles. The strains that the body endures while competing or training can make it difficult to remain in a regular routine or even find comfort after a hard day’s workout. Massage can help speed muscle recovery and also rehabilitate minor injuries incurred while practicing sports or other fitness oriented activities. Sports massages are targeted to certain muscle groups depending on the areas being affected and use pressure similar to what you would experience in a deep tissue massage. Massage can be beneficial for tennis/golfer’s elbow, shin splints, tendonitis, sprains and strains, joint pain, muscle pain and spasm, and many more conditions. Call us today for a consultation.
Relaxing massage, great for relieving stress and tension and encouraging blood flow as well as detoxification. All natural oils are used to avoid friction for the long flowing strokes, and clients should expect mild to moderate pressure throughout the session. An ideal way to let go of all the worries life throws at you on a consistent basis.
More intense than a Swedish massage and at times mildly uncomfortable, deep tissue massages target deeper areas of muscle and soft tissue with significantly more pressure. Ideal for sore muscles, knotted muscle, stiff or tense areas, or overall soreness and fatigue. Clients should expect heavy compression and deeper, slower strokes to influence the tissues. Most effective on smaller, more targeted areas, deep tissue massage is usually combined with Swedish massage techniques in full hour sessions.
