A custom therapeutic massage may incorporate a variety of advanced modalities that enhance the body’s natural restorative functioning including Swedish massage, deep tissue massage, medical/orthopedic massage, sports massage, stretching, trigger point release, kinesiotaping, cupping and/or hot stones. Light to firm touch is used to release tension, relax muscles, increase blood and lymph circulation, and impart a sense of calm. It is tailored to achieve the client’s specific therapeutic goals including ongoing wellness, relaxation, pain/tension relief, and improved function.
Therapeutic massage can be used as a collaborative, supportive addition to conventional medical treatment of illness and injury, alleviating pain and stress, aiding soft tissue healing, and revitalizing the body. Also, regular massage can enhance health, providing relaxation, release of muscle tightness, relief from anxiety and tension, and balancing aspects of body/mind/spirit. Each session is customized to the client’s needs that day, so no two sessions are the same.
