Massage Modalities

Swedish massage | relaxation massage | neuromuscular massage | myofascial release | deep tissue massage

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage, which is the basis for all massage techniques, uses five strokes, each with a distinctive therapeutic effect. The five basic strokes are effleurage (light touch), petrissage (kneading and compression), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), cross fiber-friction, and vibration. Swedish massage aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems and helps reduce pain and joint stiffness. We often incorporate joint movement and stretching techniques into the session. If you suffer from arthritis, Swedish massage will help increase your joint flexibility and range of motion.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage uses passive touch, light pressure and slow rhythmic strokes to relieve muscular tension and improve circulation and range of movement. This technique soothes the body and mind allowing deep relaxation and a generalized feeling of wellbeing. If you are tired, stressed, and overwhelmed, or if you just want to treat yourself, a relaxation massage will help you relax, renew, and rejuvenate.

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT)

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) is a specialized form of massage therapy that combines the knowledge of kinesiology and biomechanics with the physiology of the nervous system and its effect on the muscular and skeletal systems. It uses a combination of stretching, myofascial release and deep tissue therapy along with various manipulation techniques to balance the central nervous system by stabilizing low levels of neurological activity, allowing the muscles to reset, and thereby diminishing pain and improving circulation and joint movement.

Neuromuscular Massage Therapy addresses five pain-causing elements: ischemia, trigger points, nerve compression, postural distortion, and biomechanical dysfunction.  It is an extremely effective treatment for back pain caused by poor posture or soft tissue injury, such as a muscle strain. NMT is a common therapy for desk jockeys and athletes or those whose profession requires strenuous physical activity.  If you suffer from low back pain or muscle spasms, NMT will free your body of pain and swelling and increase your range of motion.

Myofascial Release Therapy

Myofascial Release Therapy treats the whole body by focusing on the fascia—the tough connective tissue that spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional uninterrupted web. From head to toe, the fascia surrounds every muscle, bone, nerve, blood vessel, and organ. Trauma, poor posture, repetitive stress injuries, scarring, and inflammation cause the fascial system to malfunction. This malfunction causes pain, sometimes with strange side effects that may seem unrelated.

Myofascial release therapy goes beyond elimination of the symptoms by focusing on the cause of the problem. It is highly effective for releasing emotional trauma held in the body and reducing scar tissue and adhesions. The gentle stretching used in myofascial therapy encourages fluid into the tissues to improve movement. If you are in chronic pain, have restricted movement, are sensitive to the touch, suffer from fibromyalgia or have experienced emotional trauma, the slow and gentle touch of myofascial release therapy will help you.

Are you suffering from fibromyalgia or chronic pain?

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a natural continuation of myofascial release therapy. After stretching and releasing the fascia and warming the superficial muscles, we focus on the deeper layers of muscle to bring blood and nutrients to the affected area. Deep tissue massage spreads open the fibers within the muscle to allow them to move more fully, removes metabolic waste, breaks up adhesions (scar tissue), and removes knots in the muscles caused by overuse and/or injury. If you suffer from fibromyalgia, a stiff neck, low back tightness, or sore shoulders, deep tissue massage will relieve your pain, reduce inflammation, and restore normal movement. If you are an athlete with tight or knotted muscles, deep tissue massage will relieve muscle strains and prevent possible injury by promoting tissue health.
