Types of Massages Available
Swedish Massage (Our basic stress relief massage)
This is the most widely used form of massage used for relaxation. Swedish affects the more superficial layers of muscles and connective tissue. An example of techniques used is long strokes that stimulate circulation.
A Deep tissue massage releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body. It uses slow strokes and deep pressure with the use of fingers, thumbs or elbows on contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It can be used for specific work or full-body.
The addition of heated stones to a massage brings another level of relaxation to major muscle groups and enables the therapist to work at a deeper level. The stones can either be placed on the body or used as an extension of the therapist's hands.
For the athlete, sports massage techniques are utilized at all stages: pre-event, post-event, during training and to expedite rehabilitation after injury. This involves compression and a variety of stretching techniques.
Massage can relieve fatigue, enhance sleep and calm an active baby. Depending upon where you are in the pregnancy the therapist may utilize reflexology, Swedish massage or very light shiatsu.
