Sports massage is geared toward individuals involved in physical activities that demand physical endurance, such as running, weightlifting, aerobics, biking, swimming, etc. This type of massage can be easily adapted to address common injuries that can affect an athlete’s performance. Many different manual manipulation techniques may be used during a session: broad cross-fiber friction, compression with active engagement, trigger point work, active muscle lengthening, and reciprocal inhibition, and more.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) is a profound technique to help increase the body’s flow of lymph by stimulating the lymphatic filtration systems. This increased circulation of lymphatic fluid assists in detoxifying the body and supports health through a stronger immune system.
LDM has been proven helpful for clients suffering from lack of energy, depressed immune response, chronic fatigue, frequent colds and flu, skin disorders, digestive issues, edema (swelling), cellulite, and more.
Raindrop Therapy Massage involves the amazing power of essential oils, which are dispensed in small, rain-like drops about six inches above the body. This technique is combined with a variety of others including basic massage, Vita Flex massage, and heat application. Raindrop Therapy is designed to bring the body back into structural and electrical alignment. The use of essential oils helps dispose of toxins and viruses lying dormant within the spinal column. They also stimulate the nerves and the re-growth of tissue.
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (swelling).
In addition, massage for pregnant women reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension — which aids in better sleep — and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
