How does Deep Tissue Therapy differ from Swedish massage?
Swedish massage is the most commonly performed technique, which involves long, gliding strokes to help improve circulation, aid in pain management, ease tension, and provide relaxation.
Deep tissue therapy is similar to Swedish massage but is more intensive. This technique reaches deep into the tissue to help release stress and muscle tension and alleviate built up “knots” in the body.
What is Myofascial Release?
Myofascial Release is a gentle, hands on technique that helps aid in improved flexibility and mobility while decreasing inflammation and pain. This technique focuses more on releasing muscle tension restricted by tight fascia. Application of this massage therapy method is commonly used for conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, TMJ and fibromyalgia.
What is Lymphatic Drainage massage?
Lymphatic drainage massage is much like it sounds. The technique increase lymph flow which helps the body to remove toxins and other infectious materials. It helps with conditions affecting the immune system providing relief from chronic colds and sinus infections.
What is Circulatory massage?
Much like Swedish massage, this technique is used to improve proper blood flow throughout the body and bring relaxation to the muscles. By using medium to deep pressure, long strokes and kneading techniques help ease tension, improve circulation and provide overall increased well-being.
What massage treatment is right for me?
We customize massage therapy plans depending on each patient’s individual needs. Depending on if you are recovering from an injury, require extra attention for sore muscles, or need consistent relief from stress and tension, we will evaluate your medical history and current status to create a plan that’s right for you.
