Deep Tissue Massage My most common service!
The main benefit of this service is to alleviate pain in your body, usually the neck, upper back and shoulders, or the low back. Sometimes this pain is associated with playing sports or frequent activity, or results from an injury, such as a fall or car accident. Pain can also be present in our bodies because of prolonged poor posture, or a lack of proper ergonomics at work. Deep Tissue Massage uses some of the same massage strokes that you would experience in a relaxing Swedish massage, however, the pressure is generally firmer. It also involves focusing prolonged pressure on the inner layers of the muscle fibers and connective tissue, or fascia, and going against the grain of the muscle tissue to break up adhesions or “knots” that are causing your discomfort. While working out those tight spots, I'm assisting your body by opening up the damaged tissue and flushing out toxins. Deep Tissue Massage is therapeutic. It is normal to feel some discomfort, but it is imperative that you communicate with me when you feel you have reached your pain threshold (More than a good hurt). It is important to stay hydrated when receiving massage, especially Deep Tissue Massage. I will be breaking up scar tissue and flushing out toxins. Proper hydration will insure that you don’t leave with a headache or feel sore the next day.
Epsom salt baths are incredibly supportive to the system after a Deep Tissue Massage. I recommend soaking after every Deep Tissue Massage to assist your body’s healing process. Deep Tissue Massage is recommended for anyone with chronic or acute pain, and is used in treating soft tissue injury due to auto accidents. It also aids in recovery from sports related injuries.

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, long gliding type strokes, passive joint movements and friction to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
