FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage, often referred to as Swedish massage, is a therapeutic technique primarily aimed at promoting overall well-being and reducing stress. Massage therapists use a series of more gentle, flowing strokes, kneading, and circular movements on the superficial layers of muscle to enhance relaxation and improve circulation.
This type of massage is designed to relax the entire body, providing a soothing experience that can help to lower stress levels, alleviate muscle tension, and promote a sense of calm. Relaxation massage is ideal for anyone looking to unwind, improve their mood, and enjoy the restorative benefits of a peaceful, unhurried massage session.

Our office takes relaxation massage to a whole new level by adding in soothing hot stones.  We never sit stones and leave them.  Instead, we work with the stones.  This type of work immediately affects the nervous system and results in THE ULTIMATE RELAXATION EXPERIENCE.

WHEN IS DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE NEEDED

Deep tissue massage is particularly needed when an individual experiences chronic muscle tension or pain, has sustained injuries from repetitive strain or sports activities, or suffers from conditions such as fibromyalgia or plantar fasciitis. This type of massage targets the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues, aiming to break down adhesions (knots) that can cause pain and inflammation. It is beneficial for those with limited mobility, postural problems, or ongoing muscle stiffness, as it helps to improve blood flow, reduce muscle tension, and promote faster healing. Consulting with a licensed massage therapist can help determine if deep tissue massage is appropriate based on specific symptoms and health conditions.

In our office – we offer LEVELS OF DEEP TISSUE.  I have been getting massage for over 15 years and I started out getting relaxation massage only.  I was working in the legal field and raising 4 kids so my life was extremely stressful.  But, at some point, I was exercising a lot and so I needed sports massage which includes a lot of deep tissue work.  Two months into massage school, I sustained a triple break to my ankle and deep tissue massage is what has kept me mobile for all these years.  There are times, though, when I cannot take too much pressure.  I seek out massage therapists who know how to change the level of pressure as needed because many therapists only default to extreme pressure.

Therapists who use too much pressure all the time have run many clients away from seeking out massage for their chronic pain which is unfortunate.  I know, because many of them have shown up to my office…

What Does Hot Stone Massage Do

In most spas and massage offices, therapists place heated stones on specific points of the body, and then do massage around the stones.  I learned this way but once I experienced it myself and did not like it, I created my own way of doing hot stone massage.

The effects of the warmed stones are profound.  The stones deeply relax muscles and enhance the overall massage experience. The heat from the stones penetrates the muscles faster than any other modality, which allows the therapist to work more effectively with less pressure.  Using stones during a massage makes the overall massage more effective and increases the relaxation effect.

 The warmth of the basalt stones increases blood flow, promotes relaxation, and can help to alleviate pain and stiffness. It also boosts circulation, reduces stress, and promotes a sense of well-being and relaxation. Our way of enhancing massage sessions in our massage is the single most verbalized reason clients give us great reviews.  Our clients absolutely love the hot stone therapy.

What is the Difference Between a Sports Massage and Regular Massage

The primary difference between a sports massage and a regular massage lies in their focus and techniques. Sports massage is specifically designed for athletes or individuals engaged in regular physical activity and aims to enhance performance, prevent injuries, and aid in recovery. It often involves a combination of techniques such as deep tissue work, stretching, and trigger point therapy, targeting muscle groups most used in the athlete’s sport. Regular massage, on the other hand, is generally geared towards relaxation, stress relief, and overall well-being, using techniques like Swedish massage to promote relaxation and increase circulation. While both types of massage offer therapeutic benefits, sports massage is more targeted and tailored to the specific needs of active individuals and their physical demands.

If a marathon runner comes in for a session, I know what muscles to target in addition to any areas that my client has muscle soreness, pain, or discomfort in.  If a swimmer comes in, I know what muscles he or she uses in the type of swimming they do regularly.  I am also known to find areas of the body that are being injured or overstressed, even if the client was not aware of it.  In this way, I am able to prevent injuries that might result in them not being able to exercise or participate in their chosen sport.  I have worked on everyone from competitive athletes to clients who are just involved in an exercise program.
