Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue is similar to Swedish massage, but the technique focuses on the deepest layer of muscles to target knots and release chronic muscle tension.
For athletes of every kind, each therapeutic massage is specific to your sport of choice with an emphasis on a particularly troublesome area, such as the knee or shoulder.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a profound technique utilized to increase lymph flow. Harmful substances are removed from the tissues and neutralized in the nodes. Additionally, it has been shown that an increase in lymph flow stimulates an increased production of lymphocytes, enhancing immune function.
Patients with extreme amounts of edema should work with a group of healthcare practitioners trained in lymph drainage, bandaging, and other modalities. However, with a proper understanding of contraindications and some basic training, massage therapists can enhance the health of their clients and decrease minor cases of edema.
Lymphatic drainage is provided for clients who are suffering from a lack of energy or a sluggish immune system. Lymphatic drainage massage is also useful when working with clients who have sports injuries. Once the initial inflammatory stage has passed, lymphatic work is applied after the sports or neuromuscular massage has been completed. This clears the tissue of debris and reduces the minor edema that sometimes occurs after the deep massage. Continued applications of lymphatic drainage, while the client is healing, may enhance the tissue regeneration process by keeping the tissue as healthy as possible.
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. Trigger point therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.
