This is the relaxing, stress-reducing type of massage most people think about when they want a massage. Swedish massage includes gliding, kneading, and striking strokes as well as friction strokes, stretching, joint movements, gentle shaking, and rocking. Generally, the massage is full-body and is very relaxing and has therapeutic benefits. Swedish Massage technique can also focus on one area of the body such as the back if that is the client’s desire. Swedish Massage sessions are typically 1 hour to 90 minutes, but can be shorter or longer as desired.
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. We use slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage. More about deep tissue massage (this link will take you off our site).
Heated Stone Massage
This massage is among the most luxurious of them all. The therapist combines a Swedish or Deep Tissue massage with the healing properties of Hot Stones. The energy and penetrating heat of the stones help tension just melt away as though it had never been there. The stones are used both to perform massage strokes and to bring relaxing warmth to the body. It’s been said that one massage stroke with a hot stone is equivalent to ten strokes without the hot stone. Try it, it’s wonderful. Hot Stone Massage is available ONLY during in-office massage sessions.
Pregnancy or Prenatal Massage
Prenatal massage refers to specific massage techniques that have been shown to reduce pregnancy discomforts and to enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and baby. Pregnancy is a tumultuous period for a woman’s mind and body. Any woman who has been pregnant can sympathize with the mental and physical fatigue associated with being pregnant. Not only does a woman experience physical changes, she also experiences mental changes as well.
Massage therapy has been known to calm many of the aches and pains associated with pregnancy such as sciatica, swelling, back and neck pain, and stomach upset. Prenatal massage has also been shown to improve physical discomforts by encouraging circulation and by stretching the muscles and joints to their full range of motion to improve skin elasticity and body tone. Studies show that pregnant women who receive regular prenatal massages are more at ease – furthermore relaxing the fetus inside their womb.
Sport Massage & Stretching
For the athlete, sports massage techniques are utilized at all stages. It combines Swedish and friction techniques for pre-event or post-event maintenance of muscles. This massage can help to reduce fatigue, soreness, and swelling that can be caused by strenuous activity. This massage combined with aided stretching can greatly reduce the after effects of overexertion.
