Prenatal Massage -
Prenatal massage is unique in its application. During the massage, the expectant mother is carefully supported by cushions and pillows in order to provide superior comfort and protect her and the baby from strain or injury. This also helps alleviate extra strain on the lower back and pelvic areas when the pressure of massage techniques are applied.
Prenatal massage is especially gentle, and deep tissue techniques are never used as a safety precaution. In fact, many areas of the body are avoided during this massage to protect mother and child, while extra attention is given to areas of the body that are particularly affected by pregnancy, like the feet and back.
The benefits of prenatal massage are numerous. The gentle kneading massage can be supremely comforting both physically and emotionally to an expectant mother, and the psychological benefit itself can be quite therapeutic. In addition to stress and anxiety reduction, prenatal massage can help reduce expectant mothers’ common aches and annoyances, like swollen ankles lower back pain, leg cramps and headaches.
Women with normal, low-risk pregnancies can benefit greatly from prenatal massage. However, women in high-risk pregnancies should consult their doctor or midwife before beginning a massage therapy program.
Sports Massage -
(suggested add on a Stretch)
Though originally designed to help athletes perform at optimum levels during games, sports massage is growing in popularity as an effective treatment for sports-related injuries or limited range of motion. Sports massage focuses on a client’s trouble spots, like shoulder soreness after eighteen holes of golf, or a tender hamstring just before a big race. Sports massage therapists understand sport-related injuries, and can help minimize pain, speed recovery and help clients perform their best at their favorite activities with full range of motion.
There are four variations of sports massage and choosing the right one is based on the client’s current level of discomfort and upcoming athletic events:
Pre-event sports massage involves a vigorous and stimulating Swedish massage that targets the muscles that will be used during the upcoming event, boosting circulation and revving up energy levels with brisk massage techniques that invigorate.
Post-event sports massage is designed to help the athlete wind down after intense physical exertion, targets muscle soreness and helps to normalize body tissues and prevent muscle stiffness the next day.
Restorative sports massage is provided during training to keep an athlete at peak performance level. Muscles are kept warm and supple, enabling more intense exertion during training time and minimizing the risk of injury.
Rehabilitative sports massage is aimed at treating sports injuries and speeding recovery time. Targeted at a specific trouble spot, rehabilitative sports massage helps increase circulation and protect range of motion.
For anyone participating in regular physical activity, sports massage therapy every week or two may be a great addition to your normal regimen.
Lymphatic Massage -
(suggested add on Normatec boots)
Your lymphatic system is close to the surface of the skin and requires a gentle technique to move fluid around the body. This gentle touch massage helps flush toxins increase blood flow, reduce bloat and swelling and amp up immunity.
Deep Tissue Massage -
(suggested add on Hypervolt)
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 while promoting faster healing by increasing blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Hot Stone Massage -
Anyone who is experiencing muscle tension and pain, insomnia, or stress may benefit from a hot stone massage. Smooth flat stones made of basalt, heated stones are placed on specific parts of your body like your spine, stomach, chest, palms and feet. Many times the therapist will hold hot stones and massage in long strokes to relieve tension.
This alternative therapy originated in China using suction to facilitate healing with blood flow and the flow of your Qi in the body. Special heated cups are placed on your skin, the air inside the cup cools and creates a vacuum that draws the skin and muscle upward into the cup. Your skin may turn red as the blood vessels respond to the change in pressure. Qi is the Chinese word meaning life force. It is believed that cupping helps balance the yin and yang, or negative and positive, within the body.

Normatec compression boots- is the ultimate recovery device.

This oxygen and blood flow heals the small tears that occur in muscle tissue through exercise or other strenuous usage.
