Corporate Wellness Spa
This is the most common type of massage. It is also known as Massage Therapy. Massage therapist
use smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on superficial layers of muscle using massage
lotion or oils.
Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to stress-related conditions or conditions with an emotional component. The massage therapist can select oils that are relaxing, energizing, stress-reducing, balancing, etc.
Hot Stone Massage
Heated, smooth stones are placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles
and balance energy centers in the body. Hot stone massage is good for people who have muscle
tension but prefer lighter massage.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. Temporary soreness may be experienced after a deep tissue massage, lasting one or two days at most.
Also called prenatal massage, pregnancy massage is becoming increasingly popular with expectant mothers. Massage therapists who are certified in pregnancy massage know the proper way to position and support the woman's body during the massage, and how to modify techniques. Pregnancy massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. The massage is customized to a woman's individual needs.
Although reflexology is sometimes called foot massage, it is more than simple foot massage. Reflexology involves applying pressure to certain points on the foot that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Reflexology is
very relaxing, especially for people who stand on their feet all day or just have tired, achy feet.
Trigger Point Massage Therapy
A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body, also known as "knots". Trigger points have two phases, active and latent. The active, painful phase of the trigger point is the one which produces the unrelenting, debilitating pain symptoms and which motivates people to seek relief. The latent, can lie quietly in muscles, sometimes for years and unless you press on the trigger point and feel the tenderness, you probably don't know they are there and are very common. Trigger point massage is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release.
