His approach combines a variety of interdisciplinary practices and intuitive touch to leave you feeling relaxed, restored and refreshed. The benefits of having healing massages are extensive, from maximizing the healing response, slowing down the aging process, to eliminating physical, mental and emotional blocks. Allow yourself to be supported, recover your strength and dissolve stress. These therapies can be great for a one-off treatment or as part of a more comprehensive training program or series of treatments. Here is a list of standardized therapies on offer but it is always an option to combine treatment styles based on your needs and preferences.
Assisted stretching is where the therapist helps the client to further stretch their muscles or even stretches the client's muscles themselves without any ‘effort’ from the client. The therapist can apply additional force to deepen the stretch. Shortened muscles become fragile and weak—adding unnecessary pressure on tendons and pulling bones out of their natural alignment. This can result in muscle, joint and back pain, as well as related injuries. One of the biggest benefits of regular stretching is to lengthen the muscles, thereby reducing the stress and pressure on the tendons and joints. Assisted stretching does more than just deepen the basic stretch. With the therapist’s assistance, a greater number of muscles can be more effective…
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head, and so on. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
Deep Tissue Sports Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension and the added component of assisted stretches and joint manipulation to improve flexibility and range of motion. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints) and tends to focus on a particular part of the body needing to be addressed. Many people experience greater levels of pleasure and release and relaxation because of the deeper pressure and intensity. It is also a more focused, results-driven type of massage, working to release chronic muscle tension or knots as efficiently and quickly as possible.
Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. Additional Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching. Before and during your Swedish massage session, communication is encouraged with your professional massage therapist so that your massage is customized to your specific needs. Special oils and aromatherapy essential oils can be incorporated to suit your taste.
