Therapeutic Massage

I use a combintation depending on how your muscles respond

Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.

Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. It may also be called myofascial (myo meaning muscle, fascialmeaning connective tissue) trigger point therapy.

 

Along with regular massage Technic's 

Deep Tissue Massage

Affects the sub-layer of musculature and fascia. These techniques require more advanced training and a more thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. The muscles must be relaxed in order to effectively perform deep tissue massage, otherwise tight surface muscles prevent the practitioner from reaching deeper musculature and causes bruising. Deep tissue helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation. It is generally integrated with other massage techniques.

 

Massage Cupping

Massage Cupping is a modern adaptation of the ancient art of cupping therapy. While massage performed by applying pressure, cupping instead uses negative pressure to pull, lift, open and expand the body’s soft tissues.

 

Swedish Massage

One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation and relax the mind. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. I use a combination of kneading, rolling, vibration, percussive, and tapping movements, with the application of oil, to reduce friction on the skin. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing, improve sleep patterns, and provides relaxation.

 

 

Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage

Prenatal massage includes many methods of massage and somatic therapies that are both effective and safe. Prenatally, specific techniques can reduce pregnancy discomforts and concerns and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus.

 

Sports Massage

Sports massage consists of specific components designed to reduce injuries, alleviate inflammation, provide warm-up, etc. for amateur and professional athletes before, during, after, and within their training regiments.

 

 

Trigger Point Therapy

Get areas of pain relieved and mobility increased with this pressure-point technique. This method deals with specific areas rather than the whole body. It can be intense and can create some great results.

 

 

Geriatric massage

Geriatric massage therapy is designed to address the specific needs of the elderly population. This type of massage for the elderly uses gentle and light application of massage techniques and can include passive stretching and a light oil or lotion to permit your muscles to be worked on without causing excessive friction to the skin. These techniques can help enhance blood circulation, combat depression, improve balance and flexibility, reduce the pain of arthritis, increase joint mobility, improve posture, and encourage overall well-being.

Geriatric massage can be especially helpful for maintaining and improving overall health as we age. It also has been shown to relieve anxiety and provide comfort, especially to touch-deprived elderly clients.
