Remedial massage uses a range of techniques to reduce muscle tension, increase circulation, release trigger points and increase range of motion. The focus is on certain muscle groups that are involved in the root cause of chronic pain, post-injury rehabilitation & structural conditions.
Myofascial Release is a very effective technique that involves the application of gentle sustained pressure into connective tissue restrictions helping to lengthen, stretch and soften the body's connective tissue network known as fascia.
One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Apart from relaxation, Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
The negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, encourage blood flow, and sedate the nervous system. The suction cups bring to the surface, the toxins and waste product built up in muscle tissue, allowing the body to clear the toxicity naturally.
Sports Massage focuses on specific areas of need, to help reduce tension, increase range of motion, and provide a warm up to activity. It is also great for post-event recovery, to aid the body in eliminating DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness).
Hot Stone Massage is a full body relaxation massage that includes long strokes with heated stones, held within the palm of the therapist's hands. The heat from the stones radiates deep into the muscle, relaxing tension and improving circulation.
