Know Your Needs…

With massage therapy, you can quite literally put yourself in good hands, those of a professional massage therapist, and alleviate pain, reduce stress and anxiety, or simply pamper yourself. You can expect to experience a wider range of motion and fewer muscle spasms, improved posture, better blood circulation, as well as removal of damaged tissue and toxic chemicals in your muscles. What’s more, therapeutic massage enhances your immunity. The botom line is, it will make you both healthier and happier!

…And Choose Your Style

From classic Swedish massage therapy to more specific and vigorous massage types such as ART (Active Release Technique), you’ll have no problem finding the one that’s ideal for you. Although all of them are effective means of pain treatment and promotion of overall well-being and health, each type is unique. Take a look at a quick rundown of the most popular therapeutic massage styles, so you’ll know exactly what you’re looking for.

Swedish Massage Therapy

You’re probably familiar with this light and indulging traditional massage style. The therapist will use soft and long strokes, rhythmic taps, muscle kneading, as well as friction to apply deeper pressure. Aromatherapy massage is a more gentle Swedish soft tissue massage which uses essential oils.

Best for: stress relief and relaxation

Sports Massage

Since your massage therapist specializing in Sports Massage has vast experience and comprehensive knowledge of the human anatomy, they can effortlessly detect your trigger points. They can not only treat injuries causing stubborn pain, but also prevent new ones.

Best for: injury prevention and recovery from sport-related and chronic injuries

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage (just like ART and Trigger Point Massage) is meant for the treatment of specific pain and trigger points. With this type of therapy, it’s vital to establish good communication with your therapist and let them know if you want more or less pressure applied to a certain area. As this is a more invasive massage style, you might feel sore afterwards, but once the source of your aches and pains is eliminated, it’s all going to be worth it.

Best for: improvement of mobility and  targeting muscle knots and tension
