Therapeutic massage

Often recommended by a health professional as a component of a comprehensive treatment plan, therapeutic massage treats injuries, pain, muscle spasms and stress. It also can assist with increasing muscle tone and flexibility.

Swedish massage

Widely used around the world, Swedish massage therapy uses several different types of strokes including a sliding or gliding movement, friction and kneading. The technique has demonstrated effectiveness in decreasing stiffness and pain for sufferers of osteoarthritis.

Myofascial release

This technique involves stretching and releasing bonds between the connective tissue fibers and muscles. The goal is to increase range of motion and eliminate pain. Myofascial release typically involves the application of tension in different directions, often by rolling of the skin.

Deep tissue massage

In deep tissue massage, the registered massage therapist works to realign the connective tissue and deep muscle layers. The technique often can provide relief for chronic pain and stiffness in the upper and lower back, neck, legs and shoulders.

Prenatal massage

Massage provided to a pregnant woman by a professional, registered massage therapist can safely decrease muscle tension, release stress and contribute to overall well-being. Massage therapy can help relieve typical discomforts many pregnant women experience, including headaches, swelling and cramping in legs, backaches and stiff necks.

Sports massage

Athletes often use sports massage before or after events to lessen fatigue, reduce swelling and muscle tension, improve flexibility and decrease the possibility of injuries. A registered massage therapist can help athletes reduce tension and stress that often builds during strenuous activity.
