Benefits of Massage
Licensed Massage Therapist uses a variety of techniques to accommodate the specific needs of each patient. Below you will find a brief description of a few techniques currently utilized to maximize each patients potential.
There is no denying the power of bodywork! Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Swedish Massage- The most common of the massage modalities. Usually it involves a combination of the following strokes: long, flowing strokes (effleurage), kneading (petrissage), friction, vibration, or percussion (tapotement) for generalized relaxation. Oil or lotion is often used to promote more fluid or glidng strokes..
Trigger Point Release- A technique which requires firm pressure to specific points in muscles (that refer pain to other parts of the body) and stretches to the involved muscles.
Myofascial work- A non-invasive technique where the underlying, connective tissue that surrounds muscles is gently stretched to improve the muscle's ability to perform.
Acupressure- Using acupuncture points, acupressure is the non-invasive alternative. Firm point stimulation to specific points are used to unblock meridians to promote better flow of Chi (or Qi), or energy, in the body.
Counterstrain- Using the same trigger points (see above), the involved muscle is passively shortened to decrease the affected muscle that is in spasm.
Seated or Chair Massage- Using a variety of massage techniques, it is done with a massage chair. Often used in out-call events or in public, when clients need to remain fully clothed.
Sports Massage- It is used to reduce the incidents of injury (pre-event or while training) and/or to promote recovery (post-event) with the use of lighter strokes and stretching.
