Types of Massage Offered
Swedish massage is the classic Western massage that uses percussion, kneading, friction, and gliding for rehabilitation, relaxation, and health maintenance. The techniques of Swedish massage are the bases for most massages.
Deep tissue massage entails working pass surface tissue into the deeper muscles of the body to alleviate chronic pain and release muscle adhesions. Cross-fiber friction is a major component of deep-tissue massage.
Sports Massage is a specialized, eclectic form of Swedish massage, which focuses on enhancing athletic performance and facilitating post-recovery for the amateur and professional athlete. Sports massage uses four basic techniques: direct pressure, cross- fiber friction, compression, and percussion. The pre-event massage helps the athlete avoid serious injury by warming and stretching tendons and ligaments and making joints more flexible. Post-event massage is restorative, reducing soreness and cramping, freeing muscle spasms, extending flexibility, and facilitating the movement of lymph for elimination.
Prenatal Massage massage during pregnancy offers undeniable physical benefits throughout every prenatal stage. Research has shown that women who receive massage while pregnant may have easier deliveries, a reduced chance of post-partum depression, and regain their bodies more quickly. In most cases, massage is perfectly safe and can help the mother-to-be relieve general body aches, pains, and tension that her body is going through while also feeling pampered at the same time.
