A variety of techniques are used in most of my massages. Below are a few of the techniques I use. Techniques used in a massage depend on your needs and how your body responds to treatment.
Swedish Massage techniques are the basis of most massages. It warms the tissue, is a treatment technique and good closing stroke.
MRT (Muscle Release Technique) combines compression, movement, and breath to break up scar tissue and lengthen the muscle. It is effective for both chronic and acute soft tissue injuries.
Myofascial Release techniques stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between the fascia, muscles, and bones to increase range of motion and ease of movement
Trigger Point Therapy uses focused pressure on “knots” in the muscles to get them to release.
Deep Tissue Massage aims to relieve tension in the deeper tissue layers of the body. It is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.
Hot Stone Therapy uses heated stones in the strokes to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in your muscles; release tension and stress quicker and more deeply than with a traditional massage.
Prenatal Massage is designed specifically to increase comfort during pregnancy when a woman’s body is enduring tremendous stress due to physical and emotional changes.
