What is Therapeutic Massage Therapy?

Therapeutic Massage Therapy is a general term used to explain the pressing, rubbing, and manipulation of your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and skin by a licensed Massage Therapist.  The touch and pressure the therapist uses can range from a light touch to deep pressure, depending on your needs and preference.  The many different types of massage we offer include:

Swedish Massage - designed to relax and energize you, this gentle form of massage uses long strokes, kneading, deep circular movements, vibration and tapping. 
Deep Tissue Massage - used slower, more-forceful strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, commonly to help with muscle damage from injuries.
Sports Massage - geared toward people involved in sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries, the technique is similar to Swedish massage. 
Trigger Point Massage - This massage focuses on the release of tight muscle fibers that can form in your muscles after injuries or overuse. 
Pre-Natal Massage - This type of massage targets specific problem areas associated with pregnancy.  Studies show that massage performed during pregnancy can help to reduce stress, anxiety, and levels of depression, while relieving muscle and joint pains.  Prenatal massage can also help lessen the pain associated with labor and increase newborn health (American Pregnancy Association).  Please Note: This massage is not intended for women in their first trimester.
Raindrop Therapy - this technique helps bring balance and harmony to the body by combining targeted aromatherapy, massage, and distinctive energy approaches. The use of pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils also create an atmosphere of spirituality and serenity.  Click here to learn more about the benefits of Raindrop Therapy
