Let us help you focus on relaxation

Myofascial release is a soft tissue massage treatment to help increase myofascial mobility and reduce pain within the musculoskeletal system. Myofascial is connective tissue that is situated under the skin and surrounds muscle, bone, ligaments and tendons. Soft tissues in the body can become restricted due to injury, overuse, inactivity and result in pain, tension and reduced blood flow. Myofascial release is a slow, effective technique to relief symptoms of fascia restrictions.

Relaxation massage is all about relaxing. It focuses on giving the client time to recover from the stresses of daily life. When you experience relaxation massage, you can expect a treatment that involves:

  • Long smooth gliding strokes that are rhythmic and flowing
  • Pressure that is deeply relaxing, but not painful
  • A treatment that is designed to soothe and relax you, not to relieve chronic pain or other underlying ailments
  • A therapist who also takes the massage environment into account – look for soothing music, warm luxurious towels, and occasionally the use of essential oils to enhance both the environment and the effects of the massage

Deep Tissue Massage. Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscletension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

 

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
