Swedish massage focuses on the entire body, using light to firm pressure to increase circulation in your muscles and provide complete head-to-toe relaxation. Whether you have sore muscles from sitting at your computer or your family life is totally stressing you out, it’s time to turn off that cell phone, give yourself time to decompress, and restore balance to your body and mind.
Elevated stress hormones wreak havoc on your body, leading to a weakened immune system, greater risk of high blood pressure, increased levels of anxiety and even weight gain. Swedish massage is here to help, switching your nervous system from a state of stress to a state of rest and reducing the body’s stress hormone levels.
Regular massage also aids in the recovery from an injury, by not only bringing blood, oxygen and nutrients to the area, but also by promoting the release of endorphins, the body’s natural pain killers.See Prices
Deep tissue massage is different from a relaxation massage because it targets specific muscles and areas of tension. This type of massage therapy facilitates the natural release of a muscle through the use of slow and deliberate pressure. It’s also used to break up adhesions that cause pain and limit range of motion and muscle function.
By providing circulation to these areas, there will be a significant decrease in chronic pain and tension. Each session is designed around your specific needs and recovery goals and is recommended on a regular basis for you to benefit fully.
Scar tissue forms after an injury to repair and strengthen the area. However, it doesn’t realign properly with the muscle fibers or have the same flexibility that the healthy tissue had. This results in limited mobility and function of the muscle and a decrease in circulation to the area.
Once circulation is limited, nutrients and oxygen from the blood can no longer reach the tissue. Waste products, trapped inside, are also unable to be released resulting in pain.
Deep Tissue is effective because it is a focused form of massage therapy that is designed to address these specific issues. It will visibly loosen muscle tissue, break up adhesions, alleviate pain and increase range of motion.See Prices
