Swedish Massage - This is the most common and best known of all massage modalities. It is the basis of, or at least partially integrated into almost every Western massage modality there is. Using long flowing strokes with light to moderate pressure, Swedish Massage increases blood and lymph circulation, flushes and relaxes muscles and tissues, and reduces stress
Deep Tissue Sculpting - Slow, focused application of pressure into the deeper layers of muscle and fascia. Used to release chronic adhesions in muscles and connective tissue that can cause pain and limit range of motion. It is especially useful in the treatment of chronic pain and injury rehabilitation, as well as conditions such as tendonitis that cause inflammation and pain. The muscles must be relaxed in order to effectively perform deep tissue massage, otherwise tight surface muscles prevent the practitioner from reaching deeper musculature. For this reason it is generally integrated with other massage techniques.
Myofascial Release - Long, stretching strokes and sustained compression geared to soften, lengthen, and release adhesions in the connective tissue that surrounds and interconnects muscles (fascia). Over time, injury, disease, repetitive motion, and aging can cause the fascia to become adhesive and inelastic, which causes muscle pain and tension and restricts range of motion. Myofascial Release can help break up these adhesions and return fascia to its normal elastic state, which will relieve pain and help restore proper posture and range of motion.
Neuromuscular Therapy- Also known as Muscle Energy Technique or Proprioceptive Neruomuscular Facilitation (PNF), this modality uses a combination of stretching, pressure and isometric exercise to release chronic muscle contractions and break the "pain-spasm-pain" cycle. Based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system initiates and maintains pain, the goal is to help relieve the pain and dysfunction by understanding and alleviating the underlying cause It is also used to locate and release spasms and hypercontraction in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, rebuild the strength of injured tissues, and restore proper musculoskeletal alignment to various areas of the body.
Trigger Point Therapy - Trigger points are knots or taut bands of muscle usually caused by injury or overuse. While locally painful, these ponts also cause referred pain in other areas of the body (trigger points in the neck or shoulder can cause pain in the arms and hands, etc). Treatment of these points includes compression, myofascial release, and stretching of the affected muscles to release the knots, which provides relief in the referred pain area
Sports Massage - Recognized as an important part of a regular maintenance program, sports massage is widely used by individuals, teams, and Olympic and professional athletes. Sports massage is particularly useful for athletes who routinely push their physical limits, but can also have many benefits for someone beginning a new workout routine, recovering from an injury, or preparing for a tournament or event.
