Pain Relief Massage

Pain is a symptom of the source of the discomfort you experience. This type of massage strives to identify your pain patterns. Various techniques and pressures are employed to understand your connections, and source(s) of pain.

Pain Management Massage 

Sports Massage

If you are preparing for an event, or feel a need to relax tight and tensed muscles...this modality is perfect. Pressure is even throughout the massage session and can include possible stretching. Strokes are swift to bring more blood flow to the surface with a gentle rocking that is relaxing.

Sports Massage: Pre/Post Event Massage

Stretching Massage

Passive stretching is a stretch that requires no movement on your part to elongate the area stretched.
 

Active stretching is a stretch that involves you engaging the targeted muscle for that area stretched. It is more intense than the passive stretching, and results are quickly noticed in most cases.

Stretching: passive and/or active

Prenatal: This category is rooted in relaxing tense muscles just as any other massage modality. Your first trimester will be like any other massage where you can lay face up (supine) and, face down (prone). Starting in 12 weeks you will be in side lying position.

Postnatal: After labor and delivery you could possibly be in side lying position. This is based on your comfort. While pregnant your body releases the hormone Relaxin...it loosen your ligaments for flexibility in your bones, and aids in creating space for your baby to grow. In short, it causes pain. Your massage will fall into one of various categories above.


 

Prenatal and Postnatal Massage

Your needs might fall into a few of the categories listed above, so the consultation is key to your massage needs and achieving goals for your physical health. Trust your therapist will guide you to maximizing your time for the best results in each session.
