Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage (Swedish, Relaxation, Side Lying, Prenatal, and others) is perfect for relaxation as well as soft tissue work. This is what most people think of when they think of massage therapy. My style of massage uses a combination of techniques tailored to your individual needs. It is my firm belief that deep tissue work does not have to hurt and I use many techniques to relax muscles and work through the fascial adhesions that can often cause pain and dysfunction. A therapeutic massage with me can be focused on relaxation, specific and focused work, or anything in between.

 

Therapeutic massage has been shown to help:

  • Promote relaxation, reducing the fight/flight/freeze response

  • Increase quality of sleep

  • Reduce stress

  • Increase circulation and blood flow

  • Increase range of motion

  • Increase lymphatic circulation

  • Stimulate muscles in atrophy

  • Prevent excessive scar formation

  • Relieve pain and swelling in sprains and fractures

  • Increase the tone of the skin, muscles, tendons, and blood vessels in a weak or chronically ill person

  • Break up adhesions and fibrous nodules that often cause pain and discomfort

  • Relieve tension headaches

  • Release toxins from the body

  • Decrease pain and discomfort in soft tissue

  • Decrease pain, discomfort, and tension related to pregnancy
