    About Massage Therapy

    Swedish Massage

    Swedish massage currently represents the western "standard" for massage therapy. Also commonly known as "therapeutic massage", Swedish Massage represents a general massage system that focuses on increasing circulation and promoting relaxation.

    Sports Massage

    Sports Massage is a form of bodywork that uses Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage techniques specifically adapted to deal with the effects of intense physical exertion on the body. Its primary purpose is to ease stiffness and pain in both muscles and joints, increase mobility in muscles and joints, warm muscle and connective tissue prior to exercise and help in removing toxins and lactic acid after a workout.

    Trigger Point Therapy

    Trigger point therapy, as practiced by Certified Myofascial Trigger Point Therapists, has three basic tasks. Each component can be simple or complex:
    1. Locate the trigger points causing the patient's pain and/or other symptom.
    2. Eliminate these trigger points.
    3. Help eliminate perpetuating factors. This means determining if the patient has habits that are perpetuating his trigger points and counseling him or her how to change or improve them.

    Neuromuscular Massage

    During the last several decades, neuromuscular therapy (NMT) has emerged as a significant methodology for assessing, treating and preventing soft tissue injuries and chronic pain. NMT, a series of manual treatment protocols based on the practitioner’s skill, anatomy knowledge and precise palpatory application, has found its home, not only in the treatment rooms of massage therapy, but also in occupational and physical therapy, nursing, Naturopathic, chiropractic, osteopathic and physical medicine clinics worldwide, as well as in many forward-looking Primary Care practices.
