ABOUT MASSAGE

Massage Therapy sessions involve the use of the modalities listed below. I will take into consideration the information given on your intake form to decide the best formula.

  • Deep Tissue – This type of massage works the deeper muscles and connective tissues. They lie under the superficial tissues which are the primary focus in Swedish massage. Deep tissue massage does not mean it will hurt, it simply means more pressure is used to affect deeper muscles. If you experience pain during a treatment it is very important to let your practitioner know.

  • Neuromuscular – This therapy is the use of pressure on specific points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to create balance in the nervous system and physical body. Neuromuscular is a term for several different techniques including trigger point therapy and myofascial release.

  • Skillful Touch – This technique taught exclusively at the Rolf® Institute of Structural Integration. It is a technique used to manipulate the deep connective tissue to cause changes in the surrounding tissue and give more ease in your body.

  • Inherent Motion Technique – This Technique is similar to cranial sacral therapy. It is taught at the Rolf® Institute of Structural Integration and is built on the knowledge that the human body has the ability to heal itself and when given the opportunity with always strive toward balance and health.  With the knowledge in our bodies and  with the aid of an Inherent Motion Practitioner the body is able to find balance and start to reorganize toward health.

  • Swedish – This is a more gentle form of massage, which promotes relaxation, eases muscle tension, increases circulation, helps with depression and offers many other health benefits. It is great for clients wishing to ease post-workout tension.
