What kind of treatments do you offer?
Our massage therapists use a variety of treatments. Each appointment will utilize a combination of these techniques depending on your personal needs and goals, including:
SOFT TISSUE RELEASE
Soft tissue release helps restore normal flexibility to muscles and is usually used after muscles have been warmed up. This technique is especially useful when muscles become extremely tense.
Lymphatic drainage helps relieve swelling around and encourage drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the heart.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
A deep tissue massage uses firm, slow pressure to reach the deep layers of muscle and fascia. Deep tissue massage can help reduce pain, lower blood pressure and heart rate, break up scar tissue, and rehabilitate injured muscles.
Joint mobilization uses carefully controlled force to gently and passively move the joint in the desired direction. These techniques can help improve your range of motion and reduce pain.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger point therapy helps soften muscle knots and reduce the pain associated with them by applying various amounts of pressure and stretching the affected areas.
Cupping is used to stimulate the skin and muscles in addition to promoting blood flow. The technique uses headed cups to produce a suction on the skin.
Myofascial release is a manual release technique that focuses on the pain in the myofascial (the membranes that wrap, connect, and support muscles).
ACTIVE RELEASE THERAPY
Active release therapy is another form of manual release that helps with soft tissue restrictions causing pain and mobility issues.
A sports massage utilizes a number of techniques tailored towards athletes. This type of massage will help prevent or treat injuries.
