Customizing Your Massage for the Ultimate Experience

Customizing Your Massage for the Ultimate Experience

Sep 15, 2019

Nothing says luxury and pampering more than a relaxing massage that’s perfectly tailored to your individual needs. With Massage, you get stress relief, relaxation, and even relief from muscle pain and symptoms of disease. With all these benefits, it’s no wonder that there are so many different massage techniques available. Today, we’ll talk about the different options and how they fit the different needs of each individual.

Swedish Massage. This technique is perfect for relaxation. It targets muscle tension and stress to relax you, stimulate blood circulation, and bring you the ultimate “me-time” experience. Your massage therapist will ask your preference between a light touch or a stronger style for a customized experience.

Integrated Massage. This massage encompasses a series of stretching and light muscle manipulation through passive combinations of short and long strokes. It is perfect for anyone who is suffering from aches and muscle pains but doesn't want something as targeted as a Deep Tissue Massage.

Sports Massage. If you’re an athlete, you know how muscle tension and injury can affect your performance. Each sport is different and targets different muscles, so effective sports massage customizes the treatment for your individual sport to relax muscles, ease muscle cramps, and calm spasms that can cause pain.

Deep Tissue Massage. If chronic stress or muscle tension is part of your life, regular deep tissue massage sessions may be in order. This specialized technique targets the effects of tension deep down by using strong amounts of pressured strokes to really dig into the muscle and bring your body to a more relaxed, stress-free state.

Myofascial Release Therapy. This technique is geared toward those with pain and inflammation in the body’s soft webbing that binds our muscles in place. When these tissue fibers (called Fascia) suffer trauma, either from injury or overuse, they become misaligned from their normal pattern and this is what causes muscle "knots". This method targets problem areas directly for relief and relaxation using a combination of Physical Therapy stretching techniques and is performed by our Physical Therapist, Bill, who has been practicing for over 40 years!

Dead Sea Mud Massage. This technique helps detoxify as well as relax your body, as this specialized material combined with other natural ingredients uses its highly concentrated minerals and salts to remove toxins, address skin issues, and improve your body’s functions.

Hot Stone Therapy. This is a traditional Native American technique that uses warm basalt stones. It’s combined with the Swedish massage technique to increase the effectiveness of the massage and deliver extraordinary relaxation and stress relief. 

Reflexology. This ancient technique uses pressure points to release energy blocks throughout the body. Its results increase circulation, relieves stress, and helps your body use its natural healing processes.
