Deep Tissue Massage
(60 min - $115.00 - taxes in)
Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic technique that focuses on targeting the deeper layers of muscles, tendons, and fascia within the body. Unlike traditional Swedish massage, which primarily aims to provide relaxation and relieve surface tension, deep tissue massage involves applying firm pressure and slow strokes to release chronic tension and knots in the muscles.
This type of massage therapy is commonly sought after by individuals experiencing chronic pain, muscular imbalances, or restricted mobility. Through the use of sustained pressure and direct friction, deep tissue massage aims to break down adhesions (knots) and alleviate muscle stiffness. The therapist may utilize their fingers, knuckles, elbows, or forearms to apply pressure, ensuring effective penetration into the underlying tissues.
Trigger Point Therapy
(60 min - $115.00 - taxes in)
Trigger point therapy is a form of bodywork that focuses on alleviating pain and discomfort by targeting specific areas of muscle tension called trigger points. These trigger points are small, highly sensitive knots that can develop in muscles, often caused by overuse, trauma, or stress. During a trigger point therapy session, a trained therapist applies direct pressure to these points, aiming to release the tension and restore normal muscle function.
This therapy can be performed using hands, fingers, elbows, or specialized tools. By applying sustained pressure, the therapist aims to deactivate the trigger points, reducing pain, improving range of motion, and promoting relaxation. Trigger point therapy can be used to address various musculoskeletal issues, including headaches, back pain, neck stiffness, and repetitive strain injuries. It is often combined with other massage techniques and stretches to enhance its effectiveness and provide comprehensive relief.
General Swedish Massage (60 min - $115.00 - taxes in)
General Swedish massage is a popular and versatile form of massage therapy that focuses on providing relaxation and relieving muscle tension. With a combination of gentle strokes, kneading, and rhythmic tapping, this technique aims to improve blood circulation, increase oxygen flow, and promote overall well-being. Swedish massage typically targets the superficial layers of muscles and uses long, gliding movements to enhance relaxation and reduce stress. This therapeutic practice is known for its ability to alleviate muscle soreness, reduce anxiety, improve flexibility, and promote a sense of rejuvenation. Whether you seek relief from everyday stress or simply want to indulge in a soothing experience, Swedish massage offers a perfect balance of relaxation and rejuvenation for both body and mind.
