MODALITIES/ AREAS OF EXPERIENCE
Swedish Massage Long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and shaking which is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin, the body's largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and wellbeing.
Trigger Point A bodywork technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. It may also be called point therapy.
Myofascial Release Myofascial Release works by the manipulation of the fascia that connects and surrounds muscles. Because the fascia is body-wide, a tension or trauma in one part of the body can affect another part. The fascia responds to the trained touch to release the adverse effects of inflammation, tensions and trauma.
Deep Tissue A technique that focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles and applied to both the superficial and deep layers of muscles, fascia, and other structures. (Deep tissue should not be confused with "deep pressure” massage, which is one that is performed with sustained strong, occasionally intense pressure throughout an entire full-body session.)
Aromatherapy The use of essential oils in a massage session for curative and rejuvenating effects.
Hot Stone Massage Developed in the Midweast for use in health spas, this technique uses stones that have been heated. These stones are positioned on the body and some are gently moved about with light pressure being exerted on the warm stones.
Pregnancy Massage Pregnancy places strong demands on a woman's body and is a time for the body to be nurtured and pampered. This massage not only relieves the tensions and aches caused by the extra weight and shift in the center of gravity to the body, but it reduces swelling, soothes the nervous system, acts as a tonic, reduces fatigue, and enhances energy.
