Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It
combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading,
and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of
this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and
pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity,
improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress
areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries.
Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the
session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind
that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water
should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will
have been released from the deep tissue during the session.

Trigger Point Therapy is a style of bodywork that focuses on stimulating and
releasing “trigger points” in your body. Trigger points are tender areas of
tension similar to acupressure points, except they occur in the belly of the
muscle rather than along the energy pathways of the body. These “knots” are
built up throughout a person’s life due to physical, mental, and/or emotional
stress. During a session, focused pressure is applied through a variety of
techniques order to release your trigger points. This process can be quite
painful at times, yet the effects are lasting and profoundly transformative.

Neuromuscular therapy is a system of massage techniques that were developed in
the 1930’s by Dr. Stanley Lief in England. It uses a holistic approach towards
healing, emphasizing and stimulating the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
Neuromuscular therapy also enhances the function of joints and muscles, and
accelerates the overall healing process by facilitating the release of endorphins.

Myofascial release is a form of soft tissue therapy intended to eliminate pain,
increase range of motion, and rebalance the entire body. It does this by using
massage techniques to stretch the fascia and release the bonds that exist between
the fascia, muscles and bones. Fascia is the connective tissue that connects and
covers all muscles, organs, and skeletal structures of the body. Direct myofascial
release is sometimes known as deep tissue work. Indirect release applies light
pressure and gently stretches the fascia; this allows for increased blood
circulation and relief from pain.
