A massage therapist applies oils to the body and gradually administers a series of strokes designed to induce relaxation, enhance circulation, increase range motion. Swedish massage can help the body remove toxins, deliver nutrients to tissues and cells more efficiently and recover from strains and traumas more quickly.
Sports massage is a specialization of Swedish massage that aids the body to achieve maximum physical performance. Administered before physical activity, it can help protect against pain and injuries while boosting performance. Following physical exertion, it helps remove lactic acid and restore normal muscle tone and range of motion.
Therapeutic massage involves the manipulation of the soft tissue structures of the body to prevent and alleviate pain, discomfort, muscle spasm, and stress; and, to promote health and wellness.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy is also known as Myotherapy or Neuromuscular Therapy and applies concentrated finger pressure to "trigger points" (painful irritated areas in muscles) to break cycles of spasm and pain. It appears that most muscular pains have a trigger point that causes the muscle to go into spasms. Trigger Point Therapy involves placing pressure on that trigger point so that the muscle can relax and the pain can be lessened. Pressure is generally applied with fingers, knuckles, and elbows.
A form of massage based largely on the techniques of Swedish massage, infant massage is taught to parents so they can massage their newborns. Infant massage can help improve circulation in newborn and relive some common infant ailments, such as gas, constipation and colic.
CranioSacral Therapy is a recently developed hands on approach to healing that applies gentle, noninvasive pressure to balance what is known as the CranioSacral system. CranioSacral Therapy balances the rhythmic flow of the cerebrospinal fluid to restore balance to the central nervous system and the entire body, for which it is the master control.
