Therapeutic / Swedish Massage

One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.​

 

Deep Tissue

A technique that is more than just deep pressure. This technique requires advanced training and a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. The muscles must be relaxed in order to effectively perform deep-tissue massage, otherwise tight surface muscles prevent the practitioner from reaching deeper musculature. It helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis. It is generally integrated with other massage techniques

 
Neuromuscular / Acupressure

Similar to Acupuncure with needles, but Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure. When these acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, release muscle tension, and promote overall wellness. 

 
Myofascial Release

A form of bodywork using long stretching strokes that seek to rebalance the body by releasing tension in the fascia/connective tissue.  It is a manual massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain and increasing range of motion. Myofascial release usually involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling.
