Massage therapy is a long-respected healing art and a drug-free antidote to stress and pain. Therapeutic methods used today come from both Eastern and Western traditions, synthesizing information from traditional approaches and modern day scientific knowledge.
At Body Solutions, we offer several types of massage including:
Swedish Massage: Uses a system of long strokes, kneading and compression techniques on muscles and joints. Promotes general relaxation, improves circulation, range of motion and relieves muscle tension.
Trigger Point Therapy: Uses concentrated finger pressure in tender or irritable spots in the muscle that can cause pain. This technique is often incorporated into the general Swedish massage.
Neuromuscular Therapy: Sometimes called myotherapy or deep tissue massage, this deeper technique may use hands, finger, thumbs and elbows to apply firmer pressure on or around hyper irritable spots of tension or pain. Often incorporated into Swedish massage.
Connective Tissue Massage: A deeper technique used to stretch fascia layers that connect or bind organs and systems resulting in better hydrated fascia. CTM helps relieve chronic tension, increases movement, improves posture and enhances self-awareness.
