TYPES OF MASSAGE
Swedish Massage: A blend of Swedish and circulatory massage strokes, the relaxation massage promotes body and mind relaxation. It will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. This style of massage can be experienced in a lighter or stronger style.
Deep Tissue Massage/Sports Massage: A more technical and sometimes more aggressive style, the deep tissue massage is utilized for its therapeutic benefits. This massage is for any person, athlete or not, who enjoys a vigorous massage.
Active Release Technique: (for upper body only) Active Release Technique (ART) is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. The ART provider uses his or her hands to evaluate the texture, tightness and movement of muscles, fascia, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Abnormal tissues are treated by combining precisely directed tension with very specific patient movements.
Hand/Foot Massage: Foot and Hand massage technique is one of the most relaxing things that you can administer to yourself or others. This treatment last approximately 15-20 minutes and is in conjunction with a Swedish or deep tissue massage.
Pre-Natal Massage: Pre-Natal Massage during pregnancy is therapeutic bodywork which focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of the childbirth experience. In addition to the fact that massage during pregnancy just plain feels good, there are many other benefits for the mom-to-be and her baby, too. Touch is vital to the mother's physical and emotional well-being as she adapts to her new body image. During the massage the mother's body will be properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. Proper positioning ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby.
Trigger Point Massage: A form of neuromuscular massage that works on specific points within the body which trigger pain in other areas. A trigger point massage therapist applies concentrated finger, knuckle or elbow pressure to trigger points (painful, irritated areas within muscles) for several seconds to ease spasms and pain caused by continual muscle tension. Benefits include increased blood circulation and release of pain and pressure on nerves.
TMJ Massage: For those with TMJ the face muscles can become very tight and sore. Certain massage techniques can help relax muzzles and ease pain.
Massage Cupping: Cupping or vacuum therapy is as old as suction. Healers in cultures all over the world have used suction for thousands of years to treat bites, skin infections, lung congestion, etc. using a variety of devices from hollow reeds to glass cups. If you are familiar with cupping at all it's probably as practiced in Chinese Medicine. Cupping is safe, very effective and has a myriad of applications. For the most part massage therapy modalities are varieties of compression. The area is compressed with kneading, gliding strokes or static pressure. A vacuum therapy like cupping decompresses the skin, fascia and muscle. Decompression breaks adhesion, improves blood and lymph circulation, can help reduce scars and increase range of motion for a wide range of conditions.
Nancy has used massage cupping successfully on temporomandibular joint dysfunction, old ankle sprains, C-section scars, frozen shoulder and many other conditions.
