Integrated Massage Therapy
Integrated Massage Therapy is a combination of two or more modalities depending on the needs and wants of the patient. These modalities include Swedish Massage, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage Massage, Tuning Fork Therapy, Crystal Work, Aromatherapy and Reiki. These sessions are predominately Swedish Massage with some fine tuning (such as removing energy blockages or unwinding connective tissue) using other techniques.
Swedish massage consists mainly of long strokes over oiled skin and kneading of the outer layers of muscle tissue to reduce stress and soothe sore joints and muscles. Swedish massage relaxes the nervous system, aids circulation, and helps with detoxification. The general pressure of this massage on a scale of 1-10, one being the lightest and ten being the firmest, averages a 3-5. This massage is great for fatigued muscles and for those who seek a more nurturing, pampering style massage to de-stress and relax.
Deep tissue massage is best for focused work on painful and stiff spots in your body. Slow, deliberate strokes with minimal oil or lotion are used to focus deep pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. This massage may be therapeutic by relieving chronic patterns of tension. This massage is a good choice for those with chronic muscle adhesions (knots), which can occur from overuse and muscle strain. The general pressure of this massage on a scale of 1-10, one being the lightest and ten being the firmest, averages a 6-8. Although measurable improvements can be experienced after one session, multiple sessions are recommended for optimal results.
Hot Stone Swedish
Hot Stones are used as a tool during your Swedish Massage to aid in warming the muscles to allow the release of tension. It also increases circulation and promotes deeper relaxation and a sense of well being.
Hot Stone Deep Tissue
Hot Stones are used as a tool during your Deep Tissue Massage to aid in warming the muscles to allow the release of tension and to enable deeper work to be done on adhesions (knots). Hot stones make deep tissue work more efficient and may increase the rate at which adhesions completely release, which typically take several sessions depending on the severity of the adhesions.
Myofascial release is a massage treatment that promotes the release of tension due to trauma, posture, or inflammation which may put pressure on nerves and muscles causing chronic pain. This work is focused on targeted problem areas and trigger points using slow stretching strokes meant to balance tissue. The use of targeted stretches is also implemented to improve joint range of motion in order to relieve pain. This work requires comprehensive health and injury intake and assessment. This massage is best for someone who has chronic pain due to an old injury, but not appropriate during the acute stage. The general pressure of this massage on a scale of 1-10, one being the lightest and ten being the firmest, is a 5. Although measurable improvements can be experienced after one session, multiple sessions are recommended for optimal results.
