Myofascial Release Techniques (MRT)
MRT is used for a variety of soft tissue and repetitive-motion injuries that have not responded well to other forms of sports therapy. Therefore, MRT is most commonly performed on professional and serious athletes who suffer from associated sport-related injury, sports related trauma, or overuse of a muscle.
Beneficial both emotionally and physically, Swedish massage uses long smooth strokes and kneading techniques on tense areas to help remove toxins from the body.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is designed to pinpoint the connective tissue of the body, rather than just the surface muscles. This intense form of massage uses a variety of techniques to deeply penetrate the muscles and fascia, loosening then and releasing tension. It is used to help correct long-term problems, relax the body, and prevent injury.
Trigger Point Massage
Trigger point massage focuses on trigger points in the muscles that radiate pain to other areas of the body. By massaging these trigger points pain can often be relieved.
Shiatsu incorporates application of pressure and stretching techniques that relieve muscle tension, ease joint stiffness, and realign the structure of the body. Shiatsu (also called “finger massaging”) is a Japanese form of physiotherapy, dating back thousands of years.
Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage Therapy
Prenatal massage is gentle therapeutic bodywork that focuses in the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic (and often uncomfortable) changes during pregnancy. The noninvasive approach of prenatal massage can ease many of the discomforts associated with pregnancy, and enhance the function of muscles and joints. It also improves blood circulation and body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. In addition to alleviating many if the common discomfort experienced during pregnancy, prenatal massage has also been found to improve blood circulation, help with posture, increase muscles tone and flexibility, stabilize hormonal levels, and relax the nervous system.
