Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes using elbows, forearms, knuckles and thumbs to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia. It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. Deep tissue massage can help increase the range of movement of the targeted area, removing stiffness and increasing its flexibility – ideal for athletes.
A Swedish massage is designed to relax the entire body by rubbing the muscles in long, gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage can help increase the level of oxygen in the blood and improve circulation and flexibility and prepare the body for deep tissue massage.
Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This style of treatment is generally performed directly on the skin without oils or creams and can be uncomfortable at times, but very effective.
