The most common form of massage, concentrating on the muscles and connective tissues of the body for improved circulation, relaxation and overall well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage
Involves slow strokes that reach deeper into the muscles and connective tissue to release chronic aches and pains.
The goal of sports massage is to enhance the athlete’s performance. The massage involves every part of the athlete’s body, concentrating on those muscle groups that are involved in the sport, and may include facilitated stretching to release tight muscles.
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is a highly irritable localized spot of exquisite tenderness in a nodule in a palpable taut band of muscle tissue. Taut bands tend to restrict range of motion by limiting a muscles ability to lengthen. The safest and most effective method of trigger point therapy is deep stroking massage applied directly to the trigger point.
