Every time you visit Massage-Wellness, your therapist will ask you about your needs and personalize a massage therapy session just for you.
Your therapist may incorporate a number of massage modalities suited to your needs on that day.
Additionally massage modalities:
Relaxation/Swedish Massage 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
This is the most common type of massage therapy in the United States. It is also known as Swedish massage or relaxation massage. Massage therapists use long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil. Swedish massage therapy can be very gentle and relaxing. If you've never had massage before, this is a good one to try first.
Deep Tissue Massage 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. People often feel sore for one to two days after deep tissue massage.
Sports Massage 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity. But you don't have to be a professional athlete to have one-it's also used by people who are active and work out often. The focus isn't on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance. A combination of techniques are used. The strokes are generally faster than Swedish massage. Facilitated stretching is a common technique. It helps to loosen muscles and increase flexibility.
Prenatal Massage 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
Prenatal massage is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers. Massage therapists who are certified in prenatal massage know the proper way to position and support the woman's body during the massage, and how to modify techniques. Prenatal massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. The massage is customized to a woman's individual needs.
Trigger Point Therapy 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
Trigger Point Therapy is a type of massage therapy which examines and treats muscles and muscle attachments in layers. It addresses surface muscles and connective tissues and deeper ligaments and connective tissues. It is closely aligned with the eastern technique of acupressure massage. The treatment techniques are very similar, the guidelines for applying acupressure apply to most Trigger Point Release applications. Trigger Point Therapy and Neuromuscular Therapy are used interchangeably.
Myofascial Massage 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
It is a massage that deals with the muscle and the connective tissue interconnected to every other area of the body. During the myofascial release session, practitioners find stuck zones called restrictions and use gentle sliding pressure in the direction of the restriction to stretch the tissues and "liberate" the fascia in order to return it to a state of normalcy. The stretching of tissues and the heat provided by the therapist's hands aid to produce a softer consistency of fascia, which support musculoskeletal system and alleviate chronic pain, headaches, and stress-related ailments.
Medical Massage 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
Medical Massage is defined as medically necessary massage, which is prescribed by a physician. Medical massage is generally practiced in relation to a specific goal focused on improving health of patients. Medical massage is not a general massage treatment; it is manual therapy applied to the specific area and the primary pathology of the patient's chief complaint.
Reiki Massage 60 minutes (85) | 90 minutes (125)
Reiki Healing Energy provides means to balance the human energy fields and energy centers (chakras) to create conditions needed for the bodies healing system to function.
