Massage Types

Swedish Massage

This classic and time-honored relaxation type of massage uses long strokes and firm pressure to relieve stress on outer layer muscles and joints.

Sports Massage

This form of massage is similar to Swedish massage, but targets specific muscles used to perform repetitive activity. Sports massage will particularly benefit athletes before or after an event, helping to prevent or treat injuries.

Deep Tissue/Trigger Point Massage

Deep tissue or trigger point massage works with layers of tissue in the body to relax, lengthen and release muscle restrictions that can form after injuries or overuse. Deep tissue work is effective in the alleviation of chronic pain, bringing about improved posture, increased flexibility and greater ease of movement. This deeper, more vigorous massage can address the whole body or give more attention to specific areas of need.

Prenatal and Perinatal Massage

Massage during pregnancy and labor has been shown to help decrease obstetric complications, lower prematurity rates, shorten labor and hospital stays, and decrease post-partum stress. After labor, it can help with pain management and address structural and physiological changes in the body.
