It reduces stress and tension. It stretches the ligaments, muscles and tendons keeping them supple and pliable. The main purpose of Swedish Massage is to move fluids, increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles, promoting health and well being.
The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. This technique often involves a blend of traditional Swedish Massage, Shiatsu and stretches specifically designed to treat athletes. Each sport uses muscles groups in a different way. Sport Massage is designed to address those specific concerns and differs according to the sport the athlete plays. It helps heal strained muscles and allows healthy ones to reach peak performance and maintain it while minimizing the risk of injury.
Our most popular massage is a combination of Swedish and Deep Tissue. The Swedish assists in releasing tension and breaking up muscle "knots" or adhered tissues, called adhesions. Swedish massage promotes relaxation and eases muscle tension. Deep Tissue is used for those suffering from chronically tense, stiff necks, lower back tightness and sore shoulders, created after a long day at work, sports activities or other stress factors.
Heated smooth, flat stones are placed on key points on the body. The massage therapist may also hold the stones and use them to massage certain areas of the body. The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, which allows the therapist to apply deeper pressure, if desired. The warmth of the hot stones improves circulation and calms the nervous system. People also get hot stone massage for a variety of health conditions.
It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber's of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
Deep Tissue Massage also helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. The therapist focuses on more specific areas and the massage may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.
When muscles are stressed, they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up toxins in the muscle tissue. A Deep Tissue Massage helps loosen muscle tissues, release toxins from muscles and get blood and oxygen circulating properly.
Because many toxins are released, it's important to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue session to help eliminate these toxins from the body.
