Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of massage 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 the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Point Therapy is a style of massage that focuses on stimulating and releasing "trigger points" in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These "knots" are built up throughout a person's life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.
Massage oil or cream is used with smooth, gliding strokes. Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits. It is a classic massage that will ease your stress and allow you to slip into a calm state of relaxation.
Ashiatsu is a Japanese word that means “foot pressure”. Ashiatsu has roots in the Far East, utilizing techniques thousands of years old. With Ashiatsu Massage, the practitioner is able to apply and sustain the smooth and constant deep pressure necessary for muscles to release tension. Rather than having to depend on a therapist’s hand and arm muscle strength, a therapist uses the overhead bars and her own weight to regulate the amount and depth of pressure, as well as the angle to the muscles, allowing the therapist to work across a far greater range of pressure than other forms of massage.
