Massage isn't just for people who want to be pampered, though there's nothing wrong with that. Sometimes we all need time to de-stress and let our bodies heal. In fact we heal best when we let go of the distractions and stresses of our daily lives and allow ourselves to relax.
Many people deal with chronic pain due to injury, muscle or joint overuse and disease. For these individuals, massage therapy has helped them feel and function better. Massage helps to alleviate tension, improve circulation, increase range of motion and maintain a healthy quality of muscle.
So, whether you're interested in a Deep Tissue or Swedish Relaxation Massage, a 30-minute or 90-minute treatment, a weekly or a monthly visit, massage therapy can help you get back to optimal health.
Swedish Relaxation Massage
Swedish Relaxation Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines an array of strokes to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of Swedish Massage are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, and greater flexibility.
Swedish Massage is wonderful for anyone suffering from arthritis and many other chronic pain issues.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.
Due to the nature of deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial. Keep in mind that soreness is common after the treatment.
Massage Cupping is a modified version of Chinese Cupping therapy. This is a very relaxing and healing treatment. This type of bodywork is used to drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, and bring blood flow to stagnant muscles and skin. Various sized cups are applied to specific parts of the body while a suction device attached to the cups creates suction and negative pressure.
This technique is wonderful for areas on the body that are chronically tight and knotted. Often the cups leave marks or 'cup kisses' in areas where there is a lot of stagnantion and decreased blood flow. This is very normal and only means that the cups were effective in removing waste from the tissues. Cup kisses usually last only a few days.
Massage Cupping can be incorprated in any Swedish Relaxation or Deep Tissue Massage session.
