Swedish massage involves manipulation of the muscles and connective tissues of the body for relaxation and health maintenance. Swedish massage uses techniques to relax muscles and body tissues, improves circulation, and aids in the healing process.
Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.
Myofascial/Trigger Point Release consists of using specific compression and holding trigger points or "knots" until dispersion takes place and the point "melts". This is not always a comfortable experience but it does work!
Thai Massage was actually developed by Buddhist monks in Thailand as a healing modality 2,500 years ago. Thai massage uses passive stretching and gentle pressure along the body’s energy lines to increase flexibility, relieve muscle and joint tension and balance the body’s energy systems. Thai massage is both deeply relaxing and energizing.
Reflexology is the practice of applying pressure to the feet and hands utilizing specific thumb, finger and hand techniques without the use of oil, cream or lotion based on a system of zones and reflex areas that reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands with a premise that such work effects a physical change in the body.
