Clinical Table Massage
This is the massage session you dream of and crave. Often addressing the full-body, disrobed with creams or oils, this type of modality works deep into the layers of the muscle and fascia, helping to relieve slight to severe tension or adhesion in the tissue. You’ll recognize this session as a traditional table massage, but with a strategic approach to address dysfunction in certain areas of the body.
Admittedly, the name sounds a little sterile. Rest assured, this slow approach to pain, limited range of motion, and injury recovery, addresses each layer of muscle in turn. To get deep, you’ve gotta go slow and that’s what this specific style of deep tissue does. Beginning with warming techniques to prepare the deeper, underlying structures, this modality builds to productive intensity at a mindful pace.
Sports Massage uses active and passive range of motion, and specialized stretching, and rhythmic compression that is tailored to each client’s muscular patterns. Contrary to its name, Sports Massage can benefit every body, athletic or not.
If you are an athlete anywhere from novice to elite, you may have already experienced the benefits of this type of massage before, during or after an event. Sports Massage both helps prep your body to perform as well as helps you recover from massive energy expenditures or even injury.
If, however, you work at a desk, have limited movement throughout the day and/or are otherwise performing repetitive motions regularly, those tension patterns you’re acquiring can become problematic over time. Sports massage can help smooth out these small injuries for a better functioning body.
Visceral Manipulation is a modality that deals with particular issues in the abdominal cavity. Also known as "bellywork," visceral massage can help to reclaim fluidity among organs, improving the movement in the visceral cavity therefore restoring its natural condition and replenishing the health of the body as a whole. In addition to the stimulation of overall flow and wellness in the viscera, the modality is also very helpful for conditions such as indigestion, acid reflux, breathing difficulties, scar tissue buildup, pelvic dysfunction and many others.
Other specialized modalities include TMJ for jaw dysfunction and side-lying prenatal massage during pregnancy.
