Swedish Massage 

The Swedish Massage involves the use of kneading, stroking, and friction to provide relief from stiffness, numbness, pain and other health problems.  The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood, to release toxins from the muscles, and stimulation of circulation.  The usual sequence in which Swedish massage strokes are conducted is Effleurage, Petrissage, Friction, Percussion, and finally passive active movements (bending and stretching).


Deep Tissue Massage 

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue.  It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders.  Some of the same strokes are used as Swedish Massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.  


Sports Massage 

Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training.  Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons.  Sports massage is also good for people with injuries, chronic pain or restricted range of motion.  The massage therapist generally concentrates o a specific problem area.  Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization may also be used to help relieve inflammation and calm muscle spasms.  

As a part of Sports Massage, Kinesio tapping is also offered.
