Massage Therapy is a process of manual application of the body's muscular and soft tissue structure and stretching. Massage has many important health benefits. In fact, massage can help you maintain physical, mental and emotional well being, especially when it is part of your regular wellness routine. Experts estimate that nearly 90% of disease is stress related.

  • Massage calms the nervous system and promotes a sense of relaxation and well being.
  • Massage reduces tension and anxiety.
  • Massage improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
  • Massage stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body's waste products.
  • Massage prevents and relieve muscles cramps and spasms.
  • Massage therapy can help with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots.

It's important to drink a lot of water after a deep tissue massage to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues. If you don't, you might be sore the next day.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is essentially the same as a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes. The primary purpose will be to help you relax, and the massage therapist will probably move at a slower pace and use light pressure.

During a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue and the therapist won't push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. Sometimes people even fall asleep during a relaxation massage.

Neuromuscular Massage

Neuromuscular Massage

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) was made popular by Paul St. John and it is a massage modality that focuses on the treatment of trigger points. They are called trigger points because they refer pain to another part of the body.

Trigger points are painful points located within taut bands of muscle, hypertonicity, and are treated primarily with the application of sustained, usually static pressure. Sometimes this is referred to as ischemic pressure and can vary from very light to heavy depending on the stage of development of the trigger point.

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage is a slow technique used to encourage natural drainage of lymph fluid, good after surgery.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage is a healthy way to reduce stress. Massage relieves normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, backaches, leg cramps, edema (or swelling).
