In the world of massage, there are a number of different massage techniques. While they all feel great when you have a specific issue that you want to address, which massage is the best bet for you and the relief you’re looking to target?
If you want to reset after a long day, try a Relaxation Massage
A relaxation massage is a way your masseuse can release built-up anxiety and stress from your body with lighter, more rhythmic pressure. After a relaxation massage, you can be sure you’ll get a great night’s sleep with ease.
If you have acute pain in one area, try a Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massages use firm pressure to relieve deep muscle tension and allow clients lasting relief. Rather than general lighter strokes used during a relaxation massage, the pressure is deliberate and firm.
If you have chronic muscle and nerve pain, try a Myofascial Release
Surrounding each muscle fibre, there is a protective tissue known as fascia. When the fascia is irritated or can’t move, it disturbs nerves, which can cause chronic pain. The aim of a myofascial release is to loosen tense points in the fascial and alleviate the stress on nerves.
If you’re pregnant, try a Prenatal Massage
Pregnancy is a major event in a woman’s life. Along with the beautiful life event can come some unpleasant symptoms, including joint pain and fatigue. Each prenatal massage is tailored to meet the needs of that specific mom-to-be!
If you want the ultimate relaxation, try a Hot Stone Massage
At the heart of relaxation is an image of someone with water heated basalt stones lined down their back. These hot stones loosen up muscles before a deep relation massage starts to release back and muscle tensions with gentle massage.
If you grind your teeth, try TMJ Therapy
Consistent teeth grinding and jaw clenching can cause painful facial tension, known as TMJ. If your facial muscles are sore, if you have tension headaches or neck and jaw pain, you could benefit from the releasing techniques of a TMJ massage.
If you’re an athlete, try a Cupping Massage
Have you ever seen those athletes with darker circles on their back and shoulders? That may be a result of a cupping massage. These spots are not tender at all and go away within a few short days. Cupping uses suction to bring blood to the skin’s surface. This action increases and stimulates blood flow around the muscles. Cupping can help promote recovery, treat pain, and release built-up tensions throughout the entire body. Cupping can be added to many of our massage services.
