Is massage therapy for you?
Would you like to increase relaxation and the feeling of well-being? Have you been in an accident or had an injury and would like to speed your healing? Would you like to increase your body’s ability to heal itself and prevent disease? Would you like natural tools to help headaches, fatigue, chronic pain, etc.? If you answered yes to any of the above, you could benefit from the following types of massage (if you are unsure which massage will benefit you the most, we will help you choose after we discuss your goals for the treatment):
Using DoTerra essential oils, Aromatouch Technique is an incredible way to experience the high quality oils by a licensed massage therapist. This method was carefully crafted by DoTerra, and each oil has been selected specifically for its individual therapeutic benefit and aroma. Eight oils are infused through a gently massage on your back and feet. Please be aware that the oils also will be applied to scalp and hair as well.
Swedish Relaxation Massage
Swedish massage can range from light to deep pressure and is used to promote general relaxation, improve range of motion, and relieve muscle tension and stress. This technique uses long, smooth strokes to stimulate blood and lymph circulation and encourage the removal of toxins from your body.
Therapeutic Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is ideal for the person who wants a more focused massage yet still wants to feel deeply relaxed. This technique releases chronic patterns of tension in your body using deep finger, forearm, and/or elbow pressure on contracted areas. It can also improve and accelerate injury rehabilitation and reduce inflammation-related pain such as tendonitis.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated, smooth, flat stones are held by the massage therapist to massage certain areas of the body. Some stones may be placed on key points on the body. The soothing warmth from the stones melt away aches and pains.
Prenatal massage is designed to keep pregnant women comfortable and safe. During the early stages of pregnancy, the massage is like any other except the therapist is aware of, and avoids, certain acupressure points on the body. In the later stages of pregnancy, the massage is done with you lying on your side and with pillows to make you comfortable during the massage.
Sports massage uses a wide variety of techniques to reduce injuries, increase physical performance, quicken recovery time, and provide much-needed relief to sore and overworked muscles. This often includes Swedish and deep tissue massage, stretching, and range-of-motion exercises.
A blend of modalities such as neuro-muscular, reflexology, deep tissue, Swedish, relaxation, etc. can be tailored to your specific needs and likes. We encourage you to ask your therapist for the type of massage you prefer, and be sure to communicate if you need adjustments to the depth of your massage. Your comfort is paramount.
