Prenatal & Fertility Massage
Prenatal massage can soothe common pregnancy symptoms such as swelling, cramping, joint pain, and even anxiety. Therapeutic massage can lower the hormones associated with stress and anxiety, improving serotonin and lowering the likelihood of complications during the eventual labor. Fertility massage is geared toward correcting things that can complicate getting pregnant or carrying to term, such as hormonal imbalances, tilted uterus, scar tissue, and blood flow to the uterus and cervix.
Deep Tissue Massage Therapy
Deep tissue massages focus on the muscle and fascia tissues in the body with a series of slow, firm movements. The most immediate result is loosening of muscle tissues and increased blood flow, which reduces inflammation and pain.
This sort of deep tissue stimulation is also useful to break up tough scar tissue or even injured muscles, working the dense spots out and releasing toxins. By slowly stretching the tense muscle areas back out the masseuse can bring relief to tense or sore muscles.
Reiki Energy Massage
Reiki energy techniques date back centuries and are based on the concept that we need a positive balance of bodily energies to be healthy. Disease and other maladies are prevalent when these energies come out of balance, so Reiki corrects these imbalances to restore proper function.
Reiki can alleviate stress and anxiety, which promotes deeper sleep at night and a stronger sense of productivity and focus.
Alleviating Pain With Therapeutic Massage
Body soreness not only competes for our attention while we work or try to relax, but can also discourage us from doing things that are good for us. For example, we may be less likely to exercise if doing so hurts. This can lead to other bad habits.
Most muscle pain comes from the tissue being flexed the wrong way or flexed too hard/often. Bad posture is a big culprit, rounding the back and shoulders and causing pain because the wrong muscles are being flexed when they should be at rest, and other muscles that should be holding us upright are slack.
Therapeutic massage can give the muscles a chance to reset. Mobility is improved while tight spots are broken up and restored to a state of calm. Because of the pressure needed to loosen up particularly tense areas, it’s normal to feel minor next-day soreness in those spots. However, regular massage of those areas prevents the build up of chronic pain.
