Treatments & Benefits
The goal of my massage practice is to provide clients with a holistic approach towards a state of well-being and high coherence. All my clients are treated with the utmost respect and compassion. I enjoy supporting my clients with effective treatment, as well as educating them about the importance of self-care, awareness, and presence. If you have an area of particular concern, such as a tight neck, feel free to ask me to spend more time in this area. Below is a description of the types of therapy sessions I offer along with the benefits of each style of massage.
Swedish Massage is one of the most offered massage techniques. It’s sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. Swedish massage is gentler than deep tissue massage and better suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief. Benefits of Swedish Massage: may loosen up tight muscles caused by daily activities such as sitting at the computer or exercising. It can be very helpful for people who hold a lot of tension in their lower back, shoulders, and or neck.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage uses many of the same stroking and kneading movements as Swedish massage, but there’s far more pressure to reach the deep muscle tissue, a therapist will massage layer by layer of muscle, applying more and more pressure and employing special techniques with the fingers, fists, and maybe even elbows to reach and stretch that deep tissue.Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage: This type of massage facilitates healing by releasing contracted areas of muscle and tissue. It can help increase blood flow to the soft tissues and may help to reduce inflammation.
Cupping Massage Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. The benefit of Cupping Massage includes reducing painful trigger points, reduce inflammation, increase blood and lymph circulation, relaxation, and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
Neuromuscular Massage therapy involves applying alternating levels of concentrated pressure to the trigger point usually using the fingers, knuckles, or elbow. Trigger points are small areas of the muscle in which there is a contracture of tissue, and the lack of blood and nutrients in that area causes muscular pain due to the inability for that muscle to relax. The benefits of neuromuscular massage are to correct pain and movement dysfunction by treating trigger points, muscle adhesions, and connective tissue patterns. Neuromuscular massage can improve posture, balance musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and improve blood circulation. Trigger point problems are normally caused by a specific trauma, repetitive movements, or even bad posture. Neuromuscular massage is considered an ongoing treatment not just something a person does whenever they feel a bit achy.
