Massage Therapy

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation Massage is a classic full body massage that includes all major muscle groups. It is perfect for reducing stress, relieving tension, easing pain, and improving circulation. The massage is performed with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. This technique will warm up and work the muscle tissue. The benefits of this treatment include increased levels of oxygen, decrease in muscle toxins, and improved flexibility. Studies also show a decrease of the stress hormone cortisol and an
increase of white blood cells boosting the immune system.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deepest layers of muscle.This massage is perfect for releasing chronic muscle pain by using slower strokes and more direct deep pressure to areas of tension. The focus is on fascia, tendons, and the deepest layers of muscle tissue. Sometimes consistent pressure is used on an area called a trigger point. This allows tight, knotted muscles to relax. Deep Tissue work triggers the release of oxytocin and serotonin and lowers blood pressure. The benefits of this treatment include relaxed muscles, management of pain, improved flexibility and range of motion.
