We offer a complete range of massage options tailored to your specific needs:
Deep tissue massage focuses on specific muscles of the body in an attempt to break-up any adhesions. Strokes are considerably slower than a traditional massage and incorporate a greater amount of pressure.
Trigger point is the application of slowly increasing, non-painful pressure applied directly to a “knot” in the skeletal muscle. This constant pressure is held until resistance and tenderness are reduced.
Maintenance (Sports Massage)
60-minute sessions during a training and competing season, focusing on maintaining and repairing fatigued and/or injured muscle tissue most used during activity. Allows the body to maintain its’ ability to train and compete at optimum levels while reducing injuries.
Using a combination of massage strokes, pressure and stretching, the goal of this treatment is to increase circulation, joint range-of-motion, and muscle flexibility. A typical session may be between 30 minutes to 1 hour, depending on when the activity actually begins.
A post-event massage can help reduce next day stiffness and soreness by assisting the body in supplying essential nutrients and oxygen to tissues, promoting lymph circulation, enhancing the elimination of accumulated metabolic waste by-products.
Fascia is a sheet-like membrane, laying just below the skin, encasing all the muscles of the body. A muscle cannot fully relax if it is bound to this membrane. The method engages the myofascial tissue and loads it with constant force until release occurs. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia to stretch the restricted fascia, until the deep tissues are reached.
