Shiatsu

Pressure Point Massage

Shiatsu Massage is a Japanese alternative bodywork technique also known as acupressure. It involves manual pressure applied to specific points on the body to help relieve tension and pain. This particular treatment also includes stretches and kneading techniques to improve the range of motion in the joints. Shiatsu massage works to reduce muscle tension and fatigue and is thought to improve blood circulation in the body and improve the lymphatic system's function.

Massage

Trigger Point Therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through isolated pressure and release.

 Using a tension scale, the Remedial therapist communicates with the client to locate areas of pain. Once located, the Remedial Therapist will use pressure to release dysfunction in the muscle. This treatment can be uncomfortable. However, the results can be long lasting pain relief.

Myofascial Release is an effective hands-on technique that involves applying a slow stretch like pressure into the connective tissue above the muscle and below the skin. This will allow the connective tissue to elongate, which will help release any dysfunction in the connective tissue. Myofascial Release can also be used on the superficial layers of certain muscles to relieve pain and tension, specifically the neck muscles.

Relaxation Massage

Back Massage

Swedish Massage involves hands-on techniques such as Effleurage and Petrissage to increase circulation, reduce stress, relieve anxiety, improve sleep, and promote relaxation throughout the entire body. While relaxation massage is wonderful for you, it is less effective than the deeper styles for changing soft tissue tension. We normally recommend deeper styles when you are suffering pain and leave relaxation for when you just want to ... relax!
