Deep tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is massage that use firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, sciatica, Piriformis syndrome, sore shoulders and more.
Swedish massage is the most common and best-known type of massage. In a Swedish massage, the therapist performs various massage strokes. These movements warm up the muscle tissue, releasing tension and gradually breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions. Swedish massage promotes relaxation, among other health benefits.
MFR (myofascial release)
Myofascial Release is an effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.
AIS (active isolated stretch)
The Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) method of muscle lengthening and fascial release is a type of Athletic Stretching Technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitated stretching of major muscle groups. More importantly, AIS provides functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes.
Trigger point is a practice that targets is a very tender spot in the body, often an isolated area within a particular muscle group. This method alleviates painful areas of the body triggered by visible knots or tight bands of muscle fiber.
Reiki is a system of healing energy which uses set hand patterns for internal treatments. Reiki places more emphasis on the healing of ailments, and ascension to higher levels of attainment.
CranioSacral Therapy (CST) is a gentle, hands-on approach that releases tensions deep in the body to relieve pain and dysfunction and improve whole-body health and performance.
Prenatal massage, also known as pregnancy massage, promotes relaxation, soothes nerves, and relieves strained back and leg muscles in expectant mothers. Prenatal massage is especially beneficial in the second and third trimesters, when the extra belly weight puts a strain on the back. This type of massage allows pregnant women extra body cushioning and support at different stages of their pregnancy and ensures specific pressure points are avoided during pregnancy.
Scar Tissue Release
Scar Tissue Release utilizes methods of MFR with strokes that release the fluids and toxins and relax the surrounding tissues to reduce the pressure on the scar tissue and adhesion and release some of the sensation in the area the tissue is concentrated.
A practice that applies pressure to reflex zones on your feet, hands or outer ears to affect your entire body. Through the use of specific massage techniques and application of pressure to these points, stress and pain can be relieved in the area of the body to which they relate.
