Massage Therapy

One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins that produce feelings of well-being.

What Massage Therapy?

Sports Massage
Sports massage involves the manipulation of soft tissue to benefit a person engaged in regular physical activity. When a person exercises, their body is subjected to various types of physical loading and following such activities, with the right amount of rest, the body’s systems adapt to cope with the increased stresses placed on them. These adaptations may affect muscles and other soft tissues, bones, the brain and nervous system. In the right measure and at the right frequency, regular exercise enables the body to cope with increased levels of stress (overload), which allows the body to exercise at higher intensities or for longer durations.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a massage technique that’s mainly used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and sports injuries. It involves applying sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the inner layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This helps to break up scar tissue that forms following an injury and reduce tension in muscle and tissue. Deep tissue massage is a more forceful technique that releases tension deep in the muscles and connective tissue.

Pregnancy Massage
With so many children being born, there is a growing need for massage therapists that have prenatal and postpartum massage training. Prenatal massage is a technique involving deep bodywork to improve circulation, take strain off muscles and joints, and help during prenatal and postpartum pregnancy phases.
Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.  Prenatal massage predominantly uses the Swedish massage technique, which focuses on long, sweeping strokes with only minimal pressure applied to the body.
