Massage Treatments: Swedish, Reflexology, and More
Massage restores a sense of balance and rejuvenation to the body by relieving muscle tension and improving blood and lymph circulation. Our licensed massage therapists utilize a combination of Swedish massage, reflexology, deep tissue neuromuscular therapy and integrative therapeutic massage, including trigger point therapy and lymphatic drainage techniques. Massages are tailored to your specific desires and goals to maximize treatment outcomes.
Also called sports massage or deep tissue massage, this is one of the most popular types of massages. Swedish massage therapists use the anatomy and physiology of your body to determine where to apply pressure. This type of massage contrasts with Asian massage which focuses on meridiens and overlaps with energy work. If you have sore muscles or want a therapeutic massage, this may be the best option.
Reflexology is often misinterpreted as “just a foot massage”, and in some ways, it is a foot massage, but it goes much further. With reflexology, a specialist addresses specific reflex points on your foot to create a healing effect throughout the rest of your body. Each part of your foot corresponds to a different part of your body, and a reflexology treatment can address anything from sinus infections to stomach issues. Reflexology works by stimulating blood flow and releasing blocked energy.
Deep Tissue Neuromuscular Therapy
Neuromuscular therapy is not just used in massage. It’s also used in a range of other areas such as physical therapy, nursing, osteopathy, and medicine. In massage, a neuromuscular approach addresses the nervous system. While traditional massages just focus on muscles, ligaments, and soft tissue, this massage goes a step further, and trained practitioners understand how the nerves engage with the rest of your body. This type of massage therapy is particularly helpful to people who suffer from chronic pain, as the massage therapist can provide relief without creating additional pain or too much pressure.
Integrative Therapeutic Massage
Feeling a sense of uneasiness or out of balance? Recovering from surgery and experiencing muscle soreness or restlessness? Integrative therapeutic massage will bring you back to your center. Using a personalized combination of massage techniques, including pressure point therapy, your therapist will work with you to uncover and release chronic and/or acute stress holding patterns. This massage will restore a sense of balance and ease in the body. You will emerge feeling extraordinarily relaxed and rejuvenated.
For our post-surgical patients, our massage therapist focuses on reducing swelling and lymphedema through lymphatic drainage techniques. This is critical to your body’s ability to detoxify, heal, and regenerate following the stress of surgery. This massage helps promote tissue healing and restores pain-free movement following treatments and surgical procedures.
