Athletic/Sports massage is especially valuable for anybody committed to a healthy lifestyle.  Incorporating regular massage into an exercise program significantly improves recovery time, endurance, flexibility, plus reduces susceptibility to injury as well as muscle stiffness and soreness.  By aiding in the elimination of excessive metabolic waste (as the result of a vigorous workout schedule), massage helps prevent toxic buildup, enabling the soft tissue to respond better to the increasing demands placed upon the body.  In turn, reaching goals will become more enjoyable (or at least less painful)!  Recommended for sports/health enthusiasts and manual laborers.

Deep Tissue massage is aimed at various layers of the fascia (connective tissue) that support muscles to loosen adhesions (restrictive bands) between layers of tissues.  This technique is typically more forcefully applied than Swedish style in order to break up taunt fibrous bands and separate deeper soft tissue structures.                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

Myofascial Release Therapy is a gentle form of deep tissue that enables the therapist to engage the myo-fascial (muscle-connective tissues) network on a subtle energy level.  This non-aggressive approach of stretching and sustained pressure application allows the body’s soft-tissue systems to relax while releasing restrictions that limit mobility, eventually leading to pain and dysfunction.  Successive treatments reintegrate the body’s structural framework.                                                                                                                                                    

Swedish (standard) massage is primarily intended to relax a stressed mind and body.  Focus is on superficial muscles and nerves; general tension (physical and mental) can be relieved by a full body massage but can be customized for more specific purposes.  Excellent means to obtain a calm peaceful state while achieving inner balance. Recommended for all types of distress (including pregnancy).

 

Trigger Point Therapy (T.P.T.)  (application of sustained pressure by use of thumbs or fingers on common stress areas) is frequently administered to deactivate these muscle “knots”.  Recommended for chronic or acute discomfort.
