When you come in for a session, you’ll be asked what you want to achieve with your massage. Do you want to relax and unwind? Are you looking for therapeutic work on specific problem areas? With my years of training and your feedback, together we can design a massage just for you using a variety of techniques to work out your problem areas.
Improve your athletic performance and reduce the risk of injury with a combination of deep tissue massage, stretching and compression techniques. This massage reduces muscle pain and joint soreness, increases flexibility and speeds recovery from injuries or overworked muscles.
Find relief from chronic pain, tension and tightness caused by injury or overworked muscles with a therapeutic massage. This session customizes techniques from deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point, neuromuscular therapy and stretching to focus on your specific problem areas.
Side note: It is a common misconception that deep-tissue massage should be painful to be therapeutic. The “No Pain, No Gain” mentality doesn’t work with massage because when people experience pain they subconsciously contract their muscles to protect themselves. Relaxation and tissue elongation cannot be achieved if the client is bracing against the massage stroke. On a pressure pain scale from 1-10, with 10 being very painful, a score of 7 is generally the most beneficial.
Trigger point therapy focuses on the release of tension around specific nerve centers found throughout your body. It is great for relieving cramped and overused muscles. Trigger Point Therapy is a Therapeutic Session.
Neuromuscular therapy aims to treat underlying causes of chronic pain involving the muscular and nervous systems. This medically-oriented form of massage addresses trigger points, circulation, nerve compression, postural issues, and biomechanical problems that can be caused by repetitive movement injuries. Neuromuscular Therapy is a Therapeutic Session.
Tension and imbalance of chewing muscles can cause excessive grinding and painful popping and clicking of the jaw. Massage therapy has been shown to be a successful way of treating TMJ syndrome. Most clients have noticed relief after one visit, but one visit usually is not enough to treat the entire condition. It has been my finding that most people respond well within 3-4 sessions.
Facial sinus massage involves gentle pressure applied to the forehead, nose and cheeks to help break up the mucous that backs up in the sinus cavities. If a fever and infection are present, massage can exasperate symptoms. In this case it is best to wait until the fever has passed before bodywork is performed.
Passive Stretching is used to determine passive range of motion and to check joint movement. This type of stretch requires no effort by the client.
PNF stretching, or proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretching, is a set of stretching techniques commonly used to enhance range of motion in order to improve motor performance and aid rehabilitation. This is not a passive stretch but will require some effort on the client’s part.
Side note: Some stretches require the client to be clothed to be the most beneficial. If you would like the benefits of several stretching techniques, please wear comfortable clothing.
Revitalize your skin with all the benefits of a body wrap. Detoxify skin cells and improve the texture of all areas of your body. Your skin will feel refreshed and youthful after a body polish followed by a mask of Black Baltic Mud. This is topped off with a silky body butter treat to seal in moisture.
Chair massage is performed in a specially designed chair with your clothes on. It is excellent for relaxation and reducing muscular tension.
