– Individualized massage which utilizes slow, deep strokes and finger pressure to release chronic patterns of tension in the body from overuse and abuse of muscles.
- Manual Lymph Drainage(MLD) – A gentle, flat-handed massage technique using rhythmic, wave-like movements to reduce edema, which allows stagnate fluids to leave the body, aiding in detoxification, and promote regeneration of tissues. This technique is especially helpful for cancer patients in remission with lymphedema resulting from radiation treatments.
- Cranial-sacral – A gentle, yet powerful, touch therapy working with the cranial-sacral system (the fluid that surrounds and protects the brain and spinal cord) to restore balance, ease stress and enhance the body’s self-healing process.
- Geriatric – Light massage techniques that can include passive stretching, addressing special care to sensitive skin and tissues, where deep tissue techniques are not appropriate and are not utilized.
- Energy Balancing – A variety of practices aiming at balancing the flow of energy in and around the body.
- Sports – Fast, repetitive massage concentrating on warming and energizing muscles for competition.
- Trigger Point/Positional Release – A form of neuromuscular therapy, which relieves numbness, acute muscle pain and restores integrity to joints by opening spasm-induces blockages so blood and nutrients can flow freely again.
- Myofascial Release - A three-dimensional application of sustained pressure and movement using the fascial system as a handle or lever to release restrictions due to trauma, inflammatory response or surgical procedures. This therapy is especially effective for chronic pain and soft tissue/joint malfunction. www.myofascialrelease.com
