Massage & Muscular Therapy
Therapeutic massage can alleviate tension in your muscles, relieve stress and anxiety, and reduce muscle soreness in your body. Massage may also boost your immune system through stimulating the lymphatic system. A massage therapy session often include different types of massage and techniques.
In a general relaxation massage the strokes are long and gliding. It also uses kneading and tapping techniques. The pressure is usually firm but gentle. It eases muscle aches and creates a sense of wellbeing.
Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layer of the muscle tissue. Adhesions can cause chronic pain and tension, limit circulation and cause inflammation.
With deep tissue massage the goal is to break up the adhesions to relieve pain and increase movement. Deep tissue massage doesn't mean that it is painful
or a hard touch.
The word myofascia refers to the bundled together, inseparable nature of the muscle tissue (myo) and the accompanying web of connective tissue (fascia). The fascia spreads throughout the body in a three-dimensional web from head to foot without interruption. The myofascial therapy is designed to improve the structural balance and alignment potential. It is done slowly without or with a modest amount of lubricant.
Athletes who use massage to prepare for or recover from intense training and workout may benefit from increased flexibility and decreased soreness. With massage therapy you can reduce the likelihood of injury by keeping the body's tissue in a healthy condition. Assisted stretching is often part of this therapy.

During a hot stone massage, smooth basalt stones are placed on your body and also used in the therapists hands. The stones can be used in a relaxation massage or in a more focused treatment session. The hot stones help relax the muscles and give a soothing and deep sense of relaxation.
