With the use of five basic strokes consisting of long, flowing techniques, the therapist warms up and works the muscle tissue, releasing tension and breaking up muscle “knots” or adhered tissues, called adhesions. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Generally, the therapist lubricates the skin with massage oil/lotion prior to doing bodywork. Swedish massage is a great way to promote relaxation and ease muscle tension.
Prenatal and postnatal massage can help relieve the physical discomfort that may accompany pregnancy. It also addresses the stress of carrying and caring for a newborn.
Craniosacral Therapy (also called CST)
A craniosacral therapy session involves the therapist placing their hands lightly on the patient, which allows them to “tune in to the craniosacral rhythm.”
A typical craniosacral therapy session is performed with the client fully clothed, in supine positions, and usually lasts about one hour. Patients often report a sense of deep relaxation during and after the treatment session, and may feel light-headed.
Craniosacral therapists claim that this treatment modality has the ability to treat mental stress, neck and back pain, migraines, TMJ Syndrome, and chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.
Deep Tissue Massage
This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.
A massage technique for stretching the fascia and releasing bonds between fascia, integument, and muscles with the goal of eliminating pain, increasing range of motion and equilibrioception. Myofascial release usually involves applying shear compression or tension in various directions, or by skin rolling.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger points are small areas of hyperirritability within the muscle and fascial tissue. The therapy session involves detecting active, and latent trigger points and releasing tension through variable pressure, mainly dependent on tissue response.
