TYPES of Massages
1)THERAPEUTIC STRETCH MASSAGE
This style is the perfect blend of relaxation and flexibility therapy all in one. Your session begins with light to medium-full body compression to allow the body to warm up and promote blood flow. As your body becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of muscular tension. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without causing excessive friction to the skin. After the area has been relaxed and muscle tension has been released a series of stretch sequences will be performed on each body area (arms, hands, legs, feet, shoulders, and neck). Proper explanation prior to stretch will always be given as well as secured draping to ensure the client feels comfortable. When combined with regular massage techniques, assisted stretching not only keeps your muscles supple, it helps your massage therapist work more effectively. Stretch massage alleviates strain on your joints and has a slew of other benefits, including enhanced mobility and better posture.
2) CLASSIC SWEDISH MASSAGE
In a general Swedish massage, your session may start with broad, flowing techniques that will help calm
your nervous system and relax exterior muscle tension. Swedish massage consists of gentle to medium
pressure to the body, manipulating soft tissues and promoting a therapeutic effect. As your body
becomes relaxed, pressure will gradually be increased to relax specific areas and relieve areas of
muscular tension. Often, a light oil or lotion is used to allow your muscles to be massaged without
causing excessive friction to the skin. The oil also helps hydrate your skin. You should communicate
immediately if you feel any discomfort so that another approach may be taken.
Most Swedish massage and bodywork techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. The therapist will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheet or towel. You will be professionally draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable. Only the area being worked on will be exposed.
SWEDISH MASSAGE BENEFITS
A typical full body session will include work on your back, arms, legs, feet, hands, head, neck, and
shoulders. If you prefer to have extra time on an area, please advise your therapist ahead of time and
understand that this will result in some areas being skipped to allow extra focus on request. Other Swedish massage benefits include:
-Enhances blood circulation
-Reduced level of anxiety
-Increases oxygen capacity of the blood
-Increases Hyperemia (dilation of blood vessels)
-Blood pressure temporarily decreased
3) SPOT SPECIFIC MASSAGE
Is Spot Treatment for you? Spot Treatment Massage Therapy is recommended to clients when they are pained by constricted areas of the neck, shoulder, hip, or back. This therapy session is perfect for those with a busy schedule or for those that are not able to have a full session of bodywork. Receiving a massage in any of these sore areas relieves pain, loosens up the stiff muscles and boosts overall health and well-being. Applying pressure to the sore areas of the neck and shoulders helps reduce muscular tension, stimulates blood circulation, eases off aches and increases relaxation. It also keeps tendons, joints and ligaments flexible It is the ultimate tune-up for the spots that cause grief, discomfort and even disrupt our routine activities, such as sleeping and working.
4) CORRECTIVE MASSAGE
Corrective massage is different from the typical spa massage in that corrective massage is focused on
results. The emphasis in corrective massage is to create efficient alignment of your bones and muscles.
The results are freedom from pain and increased range of motion. Corrective massage is designed to
counteract harmful muscle imbalances that result in poor body posture. With the repetitiveness of
occupation and daily activities, pain occurs due to imbalances created by overuse of certain muscles and
under use of others. Our body posture provides a window into musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.
The amount of postural/musculoskeletal dysfunction varies from person to person; however, no one presents with perfect muscular balance. This means everyone can benefit from corrective massage treatments. Muscle imbalances effect the whole body, causing stress and fatigue that tighten the muscles and limit oxygen to the cells. Poor posture can limit our body’s potential range of motion creating stress on the musculoskeletal system. The result is chronic pain caused by the weak underused muscles being pushed to their limit.
Corrective massage can have positive results in those affected by:
-Chronic or acute headaches (migraines)
-Lower back problems such as sciatic pain, sacroiliac joint pain, hip imbalances & spinal muscular restrictions
-Neck and shoulder pain and rotator cuff tears
-Knee tendinitis and restrictions
-Scar tissue restrictions
5) SPORTS MASSAGE
Sports massage is an important part of a balanced training routine. Movement is important, but so is
recovery! Muscle groups that are heavily exercised often lose the ability to relax, leading to chronic
tension and a loss of flexibility. Regular treatments reduce recovery time, promote flexibility, ease
muscle strain, and heal injuries.
Here are some ways monthly sports massage sessions can improve daily performance:
-Promote muscle relaxation
-Reduce excess tension
-Improve the function of soft tissue
-Maintain or increase range of motion
-Decrease the severity of DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness)
-Ease swelling of muscle tissue
Sports massage involves soft tissue manipulation that is done with the intent to improve the athlete’s body. There is no doubt that when done properly, massage is a very enjoyable experience that can keep us on a positive track toward a healthy, active lifestyle. This can mean different things to different people depending on their specific activity. Sports massage can be a 60-120 minute, full body, medium to deep tissue massage.
