Relaxation (Swedish) Massage
Stress is one of the most common complaints in today’s fast-paced society. Relaxation massage uses firm, but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension, and create other health benefits. A classic massage that places emphasis on calming the nervous system through lighter pressure and a slower pace.
Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage
Starting superficially and working deeper within the muscles can be incredibly effective and beneficial for pain, stress, and dysfunction. Using several different techniques, including but not limited to, such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy, neuromuscular techniques and/or heat, creates a relaxing, yet extremely therapeutic experience. Specific issues, areas of discomfort, or pain are addressed.
This type of massage uses deep tissue massage techniques to help improve athletic performance, endurance, and mental focus. It also helps to prevent injury, reduce injury recovery time, and improve circulation while removing lactic acid build-up and cellular waste.
A modified version of ancient Chinese cupping therapy in which suction is produced on the skin in order to stimulate blood flow and promote healing.
