Western Massage

Deep Tissue

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.


Swedish

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

Massage Cupping

Current cupping/vacuum therapies are a modern use of an ancient tool, it possess the benefits of traditional use, along with incredible and new applications. This modality utilizes glass or plastic cups and a vacuum pistol, bulb or machine to create suction on the body surface. These cups, in a variety of ways (including gliding, shaking, popping and rotating techniques), are moved over the skin while gently pulling up on the cup, and can be parked for a short time to facilitate joint mobilization or soft tissue release. This suction can reach deep into the soft tissue or can work superficially to pull inflammation and toxins toward the surface so that the skin and lymphatic system can eliminate them. Scar tissues often release quickly, despite the age of the injury or keloid tendencies.

One of the most amazing aspects of this technique is the separation in adhesions that cupping produces in tissue layers. This enables water absorption and renewed blood flow to undernourished and dehydrated tissue. It is becoming evident that separation of fused, congested soft tissue and increase in tissue function can be a catalyst for change in many current health conditions.
