Trigger point therapy • Deep tissue massage • Swedish massage • Sports massage • Prenatal massage

Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache.

Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. During this massage, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

Deep Tissue Massage

During a deep tissue massage, emphasis is placed on getting through to deep muscle layers by applying pressure to specific problem areas. This relieves severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue. Deep tissue massages may be beneficial if you are physically active, or if you have suffered a physical injury or surgery (knee/hip replacement).

Of note, it is common to experience newfound muscle soreness after a deep tissue massage. This soreness will relieve itself over the course of a few days and is an effect of increased/deep palpation to certain muscles.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massages utilize long, flowing strokes, which is helpful in reducing pain and/or joint stiffness, as well as improving joint function. This type of massage is best for recipients who want a light, relaxing session (we can vary the intensity depending on your needs). A Swedish massage will help you recharge and leave you feeling refreshed.

Sports Massage

Sports massage therapy is geared towards athletes of every kind, from faithful runners to elite professionals. The techniques and areas of treatment in this type of massage are unique to the athlete's sport of choice and corresponding areas that are overused or stressed from repetitive and/or aggressive movements.

Prenatal Massage

As your body changes through pregnancy, a prenatal massage can help you relax and reduce levels of stress hormones in the body. The soft, light touch of this technique will help you appreciate how your body is adapting to bring new life into this world. It will also help to improve your joints, muscles, circulation, and help reduce tiredness and fatigue.

Of note, prenatal massages should only be performed after your first trimester and while you are physically healthy. We recommend you consult with a doctor before scheduling an appointment if you are suffering from other symptoms or have developed a condition during your pregnancy.
