Traditional Swedish Massage
Most common and best known type of massage. Consists of various massage strokes aimed at stimulating or relaxing particular muscle groups and reducing tension throughout the whole body. Massage cream, lotion, or oil is applied to the clients’ skin (not face or scalp) and the client receives the body work on a heated, comfortable massage table while undressed.
Vedic Thai Massage
This is an ancient style of massage therapy, in which the practitioner uses no oils or lotions and the recipient remains clothed during the entire treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than traditional Swedish strokes, the practitioner combines a variety of yogic stretches and massage techniques, both client and therapist working symbiotically with the breath, blending massage and passive yoga and light pranayama into one balancing therapeutic session. This will include more traction and jostling as well as compression and stretching, leaving the client feeling decreased pain, elongation of the spine, more expansiveness and lightness within the body and mind.
**Note on attire: client is required to wear loose, comfortable pants and shirt. Sweat pants or yoga pants are good options.
Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress; if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
What does it feel like? A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation, balances hormones, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
Post partum massage can help a woman's body return more quickly to normal as well as ease both physical and emotional stress of new motherhood. Mother-to-be will most likely find comfort most efficiently while lying on her side through out the session--all comfort depends on where mother-to-be is on her gestation timeline.
Can be active (with effort, resisting the therapist) or passive (without effort, therapist moving the client). Stretching can help increase the elasticity and flexibility of muscles and tendons.
Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
Used to help relax connective tissue and muscles that are constricted. An active process by which the therapist will put pressure on a particular muscle (or muscle group) and ask the client to make a movement that involves those muscles. Another way is to have the client isometrically contract a muscle group against the therapists resistance. MET has a greater neurological effect in relaxing muscles than the therapist manipulating the muscles alone.
Similar to Swedish, except that the pressure is generally deeper and the work in more specific to a particular area that needs attention. Used to break down adhesions (scar tissue) and reduce nodules.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger Points (knots) in one area can cause (referral) pain in another area of the body. In this technique the therapist applies direct pressure to particular nodules in the muscles with the intent to alleviate pain in that and other areas.
Designed for athletes (professional and amateur) as an integral part of pre- and post event training using a combination of stretching, compression, and MET. Helps improve performance, speed recovery time, reduce inflammation and decrease soreness. Massage tables can be brought to a sporting event for massage to be performed before and after a competition.
Generally used with older or more fragile clients. It's gentle massage using systematic and rhythmic acupressure and compression instead of intense gliding or friction strokes that may not be appropriate for older bodies.
