This type of massage blends deep tissue and structural work together, depending on the needs of the client. Firm pressure and slow strokes are used to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles, nerves, and organs). Passive and active stretching is integrated to reset the body's movement patterns, creating longer lasting relief. Great for chronic pain, injury recovery, and sports performance.
Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of women in all stages of perinatal development. Specially-designed massage tables, cushions, and side-lying postures are used to prevent putting pressure on the abdomen during pregnancy. After baby comes we are also happy to accommodate the nursing moms by welcoming the baby to join her in room or on the table as needed.
A gentle technique that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax. Typically, this session will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure. In a relaxation massage, there is less emphasis on working out chronic underlying muscle tension -- the adhesions or "knots" and muscle restrictions in the muscle tissue. That's because deep tissue work can be uncomfortable,and during a relaxation massage you just want to drift away and feel good.
