Deep Tissue Massage (97140)
Deep Tissue Massage is designed to treat specific musculoskeletal disorders by realigning the deeper layers of muscles and fascia. It is especially beneficial for chronically tense and contracted areas.
Deep Tissue Massage is deliberate and focused, treating deep-chronic muscle tension. Some clients may experience a more intense session, but feel this work is necessary and beneficial to relieve chronic muscle tension. At some point in the massage clients may experience some discomfort. It is important to communicate this with your practitioner so that they can direct you in how to breathe to help limit the discomfort or, if necessary, decrease the pressure.
Some muscle soreness and stiffness is normal after a Deep Tissue Massage; it should subside after a few days. Drinking water before and after a massage will help flush and rehydrate the tissues.
Hot Stone Massage melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness, and increases circulation. The direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to access the deeper muscle layers faster. Combining hot stone massage with a full body massage provides a very healing and relaxing experience.
Same as our Hot Stone Massage, but we use the Himalayan Salt Stones. An innovative healing technique using warm salt crystal stones to ground and balance the body's electromagnetic field, central nervous system and meridians.
Intra-Oral Massage is a technique that works muscles inside and outside the mouth, the anterior and posterior neck. This treatment is beneficial for clients suffering from TMJ dysfunction due to clenching, grinding, painful or clicking jaw, excess jaw tension, migraines, whiplash, strains from orthodontia, dental procedure after-effects, headaches, tinnitus, and/or chronic face and neck pain.
This technique can be intense, but it is not necessarily painful. Intra-Oral Massage deals with muscles that are rarely touched. In turn, these muscles respond to less pressure.
Gloves are worn while working inside the mouth to release muscles and fascia involved in chewing and clenching.
Lymphatic Massage is a gentle, rhythmic stimulation of the lymph nodes and lymph vessels that can dramatically increase the normal rate of lymph flow. The slow rhythmic strokes move the skin and connective tissue, creating a gentle pumping action that increases flow in the tissues, and lymph system. When a single lymph node has been compromised due to trauma, the lymphatic fluid may “lose its course,” lacking the capacity for transporting fluids through that area.The Lymphatic System is vital to our health and wellbeing! When the lymphatic system becomes sluggish our tissues become congested, organ function is impaired, and our health suffers. Receiving Lymphatic Massage is very helpful with reducing inflammation, promoting healing after injury or surgery, and can assist healthy scar formation. Another common use for this technique is to help women who have had breast cancer, and had some auxiliary lymph nodes removed, which then can develop edema in their arm.
MFR (Myofacial Release) (97140)
Myofascial Release is a therapeutic, hands-on technique. No lotions or creams are used, allowing the practitioner to engage the restriction in the tissue. Sustained counter pressure is applied to facilitating the release of the facial tissue. Myofascial Release encourages changes in the tissue by stretching and elongating of fascia to mobilize adhered tissue.
Swedish Massage, also referred to as relaxation massage, consists of a variety of techniques designed to relax the body .
The practitioner applies lotion to help facilitate the variety of the strokes used in Swedish Massage, such as long gliding strokes, circular pressure applied with the palms and hands, and kneading of the superficial layers of skin and muscles. These strokes are used to apply pressure to superficial muscles, which, in turn, places pressure on deeper muscles encouraging the muscles to release tightness and tension.
