Types of massage therapy

Deep tissue massage

Our deep tissue massage therapy is an advanced technique that goes beyond just providing external relaxation and aims to therapeutically restore deeply-rooted muscular tissues and connective tissues. This form of treatment can be especially beneficial for tense or contracted areas such as upper back tightness, stiff necks or sore shoulders.

Trigger point therapy

Triggers or myofascial trigger points are localized sore spots that can be felt. These areas are often referred to as muscle knots and, when appropriately treated with pressure, relieve pain and restore proper functioning of muscles located in these points.

Myofascial release Therapy

This approach can be utilized to alleviate tightness in connective tissue, reducing maladies such as painful soft tissue disorders. It will augment blood circulation and lymphatic flow – ultimately improving health!

Swedish massage

The extensive Swedish massage therapy is an effective method for alleviating stress and inducing restful relaxation. Utilizing long, deliberate strokes that aim towards the direction of blood flow, practitioners induce an increase in circulation and a reduction in toxins within muscles as well as facilitating enhanced flexibility for the body along with facilitating a profound sense of relaxation throughout.

Prenatal massage

During pregnancy, various maladies arise as a result of alterations in hormonal levels such as back pains and anxiety; leading to stress on joints that bear weight. Helping alleviate these issues is a worthwhile investment in pampering during motherhood! A prenatal massage provides relief from all these discomforts while facilitating proper lymph circulation and blood flow for overall wellness of the body.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

1- Treating Muscular Tension

One of the most common reasons people visit massage therapists is to relieve muscular tension. Massages can be especially helpful for people who experience chronic pain or stiffness.

2- Reducing Stress and Anxiety

Many people find that massage therapy is a effective way to reduce anxiety and stress levels. The physical pressures and rhythmic strokes work to relax the muscles, mind and body.

3- Improving Sleep Quality and Promoting Relaxation

Massage can also help improve sleep quality by reducing stress hormones before bedtime. This can lead to improved restorative sleep cycles and decreased anxiety in the morning.

4- Improving Immunity

Massage has been shown to improve immune function in both humans and animals. The release of endorphins, which are hormones associated with happiness, can help to boost the body’s natural defences.

5- Enhancing Athletic Performance

Massage has also been shown to boost athletic performance. The increased blood flow and relaxation can help to improve joint mobility and increase muscle strength.

6- Relieving Pain

Massage has been shown to be an effective treatment for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis. The pressure and rhythmic strokes help to reduce inflammation and pain.

7- Preventing Injury and Recovery From Exercise

Massage can help to prevent injury and speed the recovery process after exercise. The increased circulation and relaxation can help to reduce inflammation and improve joint mobility.
