The Sweidsh massage is the "classic" massage most people think of
when considering a service. It is performed in a darkened room with soothing music and sounds. Long strokes known as effleurage are used to promote relaxation while shorter kneading strokes known
as petrissage are used to work through dense tissue and break up muscle adhesions. You will leave feeling relaxed and rejuvinated with significantly less tension in your muscles.
Sports Massage and Services
Sports massage is the service of choice for all caliber of athletes. Pre event warm up, post game recovery, stretching and mobility work are all vital components to remaining injury free during the season. While regular bodywork sessions help to keep your off season training more productive. Sessions are conducted with your individual sport in mind and areas of known or likely injuries will be given particular attention during this full body session. If you are in the process of returning from an injury or surgical proceedure we will work to eliminate scar tissue build up, restore range of motion and correct muscular imbalances that may have resulted. Clients are encouraged to wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing to allow for stretching and should expect an interactive session as we work together to imrpove your athletic performance.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is best for painful, stiff trouble spots in your body. The therapy is slow and deliberate using strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Little to no lotion is used to allow for better pressure. Used in conjuntion with trigger point therapy and myofascial release, deep tissue massage relieves chronic patterns of tension and helps with muscle injuries. All deep tissue massages include Biofreeze to help "calm" the areas of pain.
Express & Fast Break Services
A stiff neck. Aching wrists. Shoulders that feel as if someone folded them up. At one time or another we have all felt these aches. 15 to 30 minutes of targeted massage can restore circulation, unwind tight muscles caused by stress and lengthen shortened muscle fibers that result from sitting for too many hours every day. Reduce mental fogginess, increase energy and reduce susceptibility to repetitive stress injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome with a simple 15-30 minutes of massage to the neck, back, arms and hands. It will be time well spent to increase circulation, return your energy levels to normal and help keep the body injury free.
