Massage Therapy

Swedish Massage

This  is the best-known and most popular type of massage therapy on which all other massage styles are based.

Swedish massage therapy involves mild, moderate or deeper strokes on the back, arms, legs, neck and other body parts to target tissues and muscles for maximal pain relief, stress release and relaxation.

Swedish massage helps promote healing while targeting pain, injuries, stress and stiffness using gliding, kneading, tapping, friction and light shaking—designed to ease back pain and help relaxation.

Trigger Point Therapy

When an area of the body is tight and tense, it can cause referral pain in another area. That headache? It may actually be referral pain triggered by stiffness in your neck and shoulders.

Trigger point therapy uses massage and deep breathing to help alleviate tension and discomfort at the source.

Deep tissue massage takes Swedish massage one step further to address chronic pain and injury. This soothing, therapeutic treatment releases toxins, tension and pain.

It focuses on damaged tissue and knots with its deep, precise massage techniques. It uses appropriate pressure to promote the healing of scar tissue as well as relief from the pain of soft tissue injuries, chronic conditions, stress and tension.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Relaxation

When you are in a state of relaxation, your heart and breathing rates slow down, your blood pressure falls, the production of stress hormones decreases and your muscles relax. Regular massage can help you carry this relaxed state with you and help lower your stress levels as you go about your day.

Massage helps work out the knots, tension, stiffness and pain that life hands you.

Reduce Stress

Stress can cause you to feel anxious, cause headaches, stomach pains, high blood pressure and sleep disturbances.

Massage can help you work through that stress by releasing muscle tension and tightness and relieving pain.

Manage and Relieve Pain

The soothing pressure of massage invigorates your muscles and increases the blood flow around the source of your pain for a healing, pain-relieving effect. Massage also helps release your body’s natural painkillers to help release tension and dull the pain.

Sleep Better

Regular massage can focus on any pain or muscle tension that might be keeping you awake. It can also help reduce stress and promote relaxation, so that you can help clear your mind for a good night’s sleep.
