Techniques

Swedish:

This type of massage is used to relax muscles by applying pressure to them againsts deeper muscles and bones. The pressure is applied while rubbing in the same direction of blood flow to the heart.

Deep tissue:

This modality is similar to Swedish massage, but focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia. The pressure is more intense than Swedish massage and is used to work on chronic muscle tension and adhesions. This is our most popular type of massage.

Trigger point:

This modality consists of deep and direct pressure applied to trigger points or "knots" with the use of fingers and elbows. Trigger points will often cause referred pain to other areas of the body. This type of massage is interactive with the massage therapist and the client communicating to pinpoint specific trigger points.

Lymphatic Drainage/Facial massage:

This massage modality applies gentle pressure to the forehead, nose, checks and neck. This is typically done in slow repetition to drain fluid from the face/head into the thorax to relieve sinus related pressure.
