• Swedish: Both relaxing and energizing. Helps circulate both blood and lymph throughout the body in order to speed healing of muscle pain.
• Shiatsu: Literally means “finger pressure.” Shiatsu is a form of acupressure performed along meridian lines running
throughout the body. Shiatsu boosts “chi” (energy), and helps to balance the body, mind, and spirt.
• Deep Pressure: Deep Pressure work can be added to a Swedish Massage. Deep Pressure incorporates the use of the elbows and fists in order to work out deeper knots.
• Myofacial Therapy Release: MFT includes assessing posture, range of motion, pain and tension related to work, stress, and over-use; after the pre-assessment, the massage is geared precisely to the areas identified. After the massage, a re-assessment is performed in order to determine how effective the massage was, and what more will be done.
