Types of Massage
The goal of deep tissue massage is to get in contact with the deep layers of muscle and connective tissues.
Trigger Point Therapy
TP or Myofascial release is a therapy that targets sore, irritable, or tight spots in muscles. The therapist carefully seeks out trigger points and uses specific compression techniques to release these areas.
VM uses very specific soft manual forces to encourage normal mobility, tone and motion of the internal organs and their connective tissues.
Sports Massage/Injury Recovery
Sports Massage/Injury Recovery is designed to increase athletic performance. Most often sports massage focuses on the muscles used by athletes, i.e. runners want special focus on their legs and hips. Deep tissue techniques aid in increased blood flow and a reduction in soreness of stressed or over used muscle groups.
CST is a gentle hands on technique used to find and release restriction in the body’s fascia. Fascia is a thick layer of connective tissue which encompasses every organ, bone, and muscle, as well as brain, spinal cord and central nervous system.
