Types & Benefits of Massage

Massage during pregnancy is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling), while also relaxing nervous tension, reducing stress on weight-bearing joints, encouraging blood and lymph circulation and potentially relieving depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
CORE myofascial therapy is a full-body treatment that mobilizes the myofascial network, improving human structural and functional potentials.
Deep tissue massage therapy is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Trigger point massage therapy is designed to alleviate the source of pain you are experiencing through cycles of isolated pressure and release. During the massage, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact pain location and intensity of discomfort.
Burn scar massage therapy is effective in improving pain, itching and scar characteristics in hypertrophic scars after a burn. Hypertrophic scars are raised, thick red scars that are often painful and itchy. These types of scars can also impair range of motion and elasticity of the surrounding tissues. Massage therapy can help.
Medical massage is outcome-based massage, primarily the application of a specific treatment targeted to a specific problem the patient presents with a diagnosis. The massage therapist will administer medical massage after a thorough assessment/evaluation and will identify specific outcomes as the basis for treatment.

Before Your Massage

    • Reschedule your visit if you have a fever, skin irritations or aren’t feeling well.
    • Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your massage.
    • Avoid eating just before your massage.
    • Arrive on time and relaxed. If you’re rushed, it will take longer to get into a relaxed state.
      • Let the therapist know about any pharmaceutical drugs or botanical medicines you are taking, because massage can enhance or reduce the effect of pharmaceutical drugs, such as blood pressure medication.
      • Let the therapist know what areas of your body you would like worked on, any areas to avoid, and if you have any techniques you would like to use or avoid.

What to Bring:

Please have your medical information readily available, including a list of medications that you are currently taking. This information will help the therapist evaluate your health status.
