Table Massage

Massage in its many forms reduces stress, relaxes muscles and relieves pain.

Deep Tissue Massage – This type of massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is used to help ease chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and deeper pressure. It helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue and usually focuses on specific areas of the body to help release chronic patterns of muscle tension.

Trigger Point Therapy – Trigger points are areas of tenderness in a muscle. Trigger point therapy is a technique designed to relieve pain by applying pressure to the muscle. Some trigger points will be painful only at the site where the pressure is applied and others will refer pain to other areas of the body. Trigger points can often be felt as a muscle knot. Trigger point therapy is usually done in conjunction with a deep tissue or relaxation massage.

Relaxation Massage – This is a light to medium pressure massage utilizing mostly Swedish massage techniques of effleurage and petrissage. It is designed to relax and invigorate the body and is a great massage for stress release.

Sports Massage – Sports massage can be used before or after athletic activity. It's main purpose is to help relieve the stress and tension that occurs in muscles during physical activity. Sports massage will help an athlete achieve peak performance by reducing muscle tension and helping to prevent injuries.
