What is the benefit of Deep tissue massage ?

The primary goal of deep tissue massage is to reduce pain and discomfort, while improving the body’s ability to heal itself. Deep tissue massages are not only relaxing — they also help “lengthen and release muscles” that frequently feel tense and get stuck in uncomfortable holding patterns.

Most deep tissue massages normally focus on major muscle group such as the neck or lower back along with joints and tendons that are susceptible to straining or injuries. Certain areas of the body that tend to tense up in times of stress, including the shoulders, neck and hips, can often benefit the most from this type of deep manipulation

A Deep tissue or sports massage helps with physical treatment to treat pain and disability, improve muscle recovery and joint mobilization and prevent injuries.

Hot Stone Therapy

  • Take advantages of our fabulous 60 minute Hot Stone Therapy with our organic coconut oil.                
  • Hot stone massage is a natural therapy in which warmed stones are positioned on parts of the client’s body of to maximize the therapeutic benefit.
  • The stones used are smooth surfaced river basalt stones and are heated in a professional sanitized water warmer before use.
  • The high iron content in basalt helps the stones retain heat during the massage. 
  • Hot stone massages are beneficial on both physical and psychological levels.
  • The heat from the stones helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively
  • Overly tense muscles can hinder the massage procedure, so if your muscles are extremely tight or stiff, the heated stones may provide the extra relaxation you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.
  • We use extra virgin coconut oil or a rich vegan body cream.

  •        60 minutes of Hot Stone Therapy – $150

She believes that most injuries or problems occur because connective tissue (myofascia) is tight and restricts range of motion and flexibility of muscle and joints; therefore, connective tissue work and stretching are a must with her massage.

FAQs

Where will my massage session take place?
Your massage session will take place in a warm, comfortable, quiet room. Music may be played to help you relax. You will lie on a table especially designed for your comfort.

Must I be completely undressed?
Most massage techniques are traditionally performed with the client unclothed; however, it is entirely up to you what you want to wear. You should undress to your level of comfort. You will be properly draped during the entire session. If you are receiving a sports massage, it is beneficial to wear workout shorts.

Will the therapist be present when I disrobe?
The therapist will leave the room while you undress, relax onto the table, and cover yourself with a clean sheets and blanket.

Will I be covered during the session?
You will be properly draped at all times to keep you warm and comfortable.
Only the area being worked on will be exposed.

Are there different kinds of massage?
There are numerous types of massage; various techniques utilize different strokes, including basic rubbing strokes, rocking movement, posture and movement re-education, application of pressure to specific points, and more. We can discuss which methods may be most appropriate for you.

What should I do during the massage session?
Prior to the massage, feel free to ask the therapist any questions about the technique or the upcoming session. During the massage, make yourself comfortable. The therapist will either gently move you or tell you what is needed throughout the session (such as lifting your arm). Many people just close their eyes and completely relax, communicating if/when they need more or less pressure, another blanket, or anything else relevant to the session. If you have any questions regarding the session or about the particular technique you are receiving,
feel free to ask.

How will I feel after the massage session?
Most people feel very relaxed. Some experience freedom from long-term aches and pains developed from tension or repetitive activity. After an initial period of feeling slowed down, people often experience increased energy, heightened awareness, and greater productivity which can last for days. Since toxins are released from your soft tissues during a massage, it is recommended you drink plenty of water following your massage.

What are the benefits of massage?
Massage can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscular tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety and create an overall sense of well-being.

Are there any medical conditions that would make massage inadvisable?
Yes. That’s why it’s imperative that, before you begin your session, the therapist asks general health questions. It is very important that you inform the therapist of any health problems or medications you are taking. If you are under a doctor’s care, it is strongly advised that you receive a written recommendation for massage or bodywork prior to any session. Depending on the condition, approval from your doctor may be required.
