Deep Tissue Massage
Provides immediate relief to patients suffering with muscle knots and chronic muscle tension.
Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage that targets and concentrates on the trigger points or muscle knots that are causing acute and chronic muscle pain. This vigorous type of massage restores balance between the musculoskeletal system and the Central Nervous System and releases endorphins, which are the body’s own natural pain killers.
Other benefits include reducing inflammation and eliminating accumulated scar tissue, vastly improving joint and muscle function. The practioner will focus in on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) vital to healing and recovery.
Hot Stone Massage
Heat from smooth stones relieves tense muscles and sore joints. Combined with Swedish techniques, this creates an unforgettable and relaxing experience.
Swedish Massage is the style that comes to mind when most people think about massage. It consists of long gliding strokes, shaking, friction and tapping. Pressure can range from light to medium, with a combination of techniques for a perfect relaxation massage. It was developed in Stockholm a couple of centuries ago, and is the most common and best-known form of bodywork performed today.
Swedish massage is exceptional for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
