It’s used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as stiff neck, upper back, low back pain, muscle tightness, and sore muscles. It is also used to break up scar tissue and physically break down muscle knots or adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) that can disrupt circulation and cause pain, limited range of motion, and inflammation.
The basis of a sports massage is to focus on a certain group of muscles the athlete uses according to their sport. It can help increase blood flow, increase range of motion, and decrease the risk of injury along with treating current injuries. In sports massage, the strokes are generally faster than Swedish massage. The therapist may also use other techniques such as compression, pressure point therapy, and joint mobilization.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. The massage therapist will now incorporate swedish hand massage while the stones are placed, or may hold 2 heated stones as they massage your body using those swedish massage techniques.
Relaxation massages incorporate different speeds and strokes, and a light gentle or medium touch in order to relax the body. These types of massages are more for relaxation and stress relief; they are not intended to treat any specific injuries whether acute or re-occurring.
ACUPRESSURE MASSAGE /
upping relaxes tense muscles and reduces stiffness associated with chronic back and neck pains, migraines, rheumatism, and fatigue. Athletes have been known to use cupping therapy to naturally improve performance and reduce stiffness, muscle cramps, joint pains and scar tissue caused by injuries. It also helps increase blood flow and draws oxygenated blood rich in nutrients under your skin to the areas it is needed. While the cups are in place, the therapist will incorporate swedish massage techniques on certain points of the body in order to help the increase of blood flow, promote muscle relaxation, and reduce pain.
Extremely similar to regular forms of massage therapy such as Swedish massage, but the therapist will modify their technique to customize the treatment to the needs of a pregnant woman and their changing bodies. Carrying a baby changes the centre of gravity in your body and puts a lot of stress on your back, shoulders, neck, and abdominal muscles. Our therapists are extensively trained in prenatal massage and modifying their technique to accommodate the pregnant body while helping promote muscle relaxation, ease sore spots, reduce back pain, improve circulation and mobility, reduce anxiety, and help relax your ligaments.
