Description of Treatments
This is a full body, relaxing massage where you control the amount of pressure you require. This is ideal if you just want to relax after a stressful day. Almond oil is the massage medium that is used and it is good for all skin types. If you’re looking for a massage with heavier pressure consider a 60 or 90 minute deep tissue.
Sports/Soft Tissue Massage
This type of massage is designed to treat soft tissue injuries or dysfunctions that are the result of an accident usually, but not always, sports related or resulting from a over use strain. Examples of these can be strains (pulled muscle or tendon), sprains (pulled ligament), tight muscles or “knots” (fibrous build-ups), repetitive strain injuries such as tennis elbow (pain on the outside of your elbow) or golfers elbow (pain on the inside of your elbow). Sports and soft tissue massage target the affected soft tissue structures through the use of deep tissue manipulation and stretching techniques. These techniques include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques, positional release, cross fiber friction well as the use of traditional massage strokes. This massage is perfect for gym goers or everyday people who have aches and pains. Sports massage can improve flexibility, relieve tension, improve endurance and treat and help prevent injuries to keep your body functioning at its peak.
