Remedial massage is a form of deep tissue massage that aims to not only reduce muscle tension but also correct any imbalances in the body. When muscles are tight, they can pull on different areas and bones creating misalignment. Therefore when the muscles are loosened, the body will go back to how it should be, releasing the pressure it was causing on other areas. Usually Remedial massage is focused on a couple of key problem areas each treatment as opposed to a whole body workover.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue massage is a massage with really firm pressure designed to primarily reduce muscle tension. Other benefits include increased blood & oxygen flow around the body. Mainly performed on larger muscle groups of the body (i.e. not on the face or stomach). Most Deep tissue massage treatments are focused on a specific area but the whole body can be worked on in one treatment if desired.
TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE
Trigger point massage aims to reduce muscle tension through the release of trigger points within the muscles. Each muscle usually has one or more trigger points, that when activated, help relax that muscle. Trigger points are usually worked on quite firmly therefore being another style of deep tissue. Usually each treatment would just focus on a certain problem area/s.
RELAXATION / SWEDISH MASSAGE
Sometimes all we need is some time out, or just a mental break, so if you are primarily after relaxation of the mind then this is the style for you! Long slow strokes, enhancing blood and oxygen flow is the goal, along with slowing down and relaxing the mind. A much gentler form of massage and the whole body can be worked over in an hour. The hands, feet and head are included as this is where most of the nerve receptors are found on the body; enhancing relaxation and the sense of touch.
PREGNANCY/ PRENATAL MASSAGE
Are you pregnant or suffer from lower back pain, swollen legs/feet, neck and shoulder tension, or just in need of some 'me' time or time lying face down?! Then a pregnancy massage is for you! I use a special mat on top of my existing table, which allows you to lye face down, regardless of how far along you are or how big your belly/breasts are. it is super comfortable and you will always be fully draped. Pregnancy massage can assist with a healthier body and therefore pregnancy, reducing neck, back, pelvic, sciatic and leg pain, reduces anxiety &/ depression, reduces insomnia & fatigue by promoting relaxation, improves flexibility by releasing tight muscles, lowers the rate of premature labour, reduces labour and delivery times and assists with natural childbirth. Can be used as often as needed during pregnancy.
