Types of Clinical Massage offered:
Swedish Massage- is great for both your body and for your emotional well-being. Swedish massage can undo knots in your muscles, decrease pain in your body, and increase blood circulation, lymph and metabolic wastes from your muscle tissues.
Deep Tissue Massage- targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. Click here for more information.
Prenatal Massage (After first trimester)-Also called prenatal massage, pregnancy massage is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers. Massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage know the proper way to position and support the woman’s body during the massage, and how to modify techniques. Pregnancy massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. The massage is customized to a woman’s individual needs.
Clinical Massage — Clinical massage is a tailored treatment for what the patient is feeling at that moment. By working with a chiropractor’s suggestion, this type of massage can muscularly re-align your body to an anatomically correct posture. It may include medical folding (putting the body into pain free positions) in order to massage the area without discomfort to the deepest tissue for that particular person’s needs. It works the muscles according to their shape, and thus provides a quick range of motion recovery for the patient.
Sports Massage— Sports massage is specifically designed for people who are involved in physical activity. But you don’t have to be a professional athlete to have one, it’s also used by people who are active and work out often. The focus isn’t on relaxation but on preventing and treating injury and enhancing athletic performance. The strokes are generally faster than Swedish massage. Facilitated stretching is a common technique. It helps to loosen muscles and increase flexibility. Click here to learn more.
