Massage Therapy is a hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body
including muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints. It is also
an alternative health option to help alleviate the soft tissue discomfort
associated with everyday and occupational stresses, muscular overuse and many
chronic pain syndromes. It can also greatly reduce the development of painful
muscular patterning, if employed early enough after accidents involving trauma
Massage therapists work to improve the circulation of blood through the body and
to speed the removal of metabolic waste products from muscles. Their skilled
kneading increases the flexibility of muscles, ligaments, and other soft tissues.
Some people visit a massage therapist to relieve pain or to warm up before a
sporting event. Others want to relax and reduce stress.
Craniosacral Therapy - Via a gentle, noninvasive manipulative technique, this
encourages your own natural mechanisms to improve the functioning of your brain
and spinal cord to dissipate the negative effects of stress, promote good health,
and enhance resistance to disease.
Deep Tissue Massage - is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower
strokes and more direct pressure or friction applied across the grain of the
muscles. This invigorating experience is a process of detection of stiff or
painful areas by determining the quality and texture of the deeper layers of
musculature, and slowly working into the deep layers of muscle tissue. Specific
hand positions and strokes are then used to respond to various tissue qualities.
Techniques employing breath and movement are also used for releasing muscular
Swedish massage - (which is a proper name, not a reference to Sweden) refers to
a collection of techniques designed primarily to relax muscles by applying
pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same
direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. The lymph system and
veins (which carry blood back to the heart) both rely on muscle action, rather
than heart pump pressure, to operate. Many believe it is safe to apply light
pressure in the opposite direction. Friction is reduced by oil, or lacking that
baby powder. Some practitioners claim benefits from vegetable rather than
mineral oil while others disagree. Swedish massage can relax muscles, increase
circulation, remove metabolic waste products, help the recipient obtain a
feeling of connectedness, a better awareness of their body and the way they use
and position it. The strokes and manipulations of Swedish Massage are each
conceived as having a specific therapeutic benefit. One of the primary goals of
Swedish Massage is to speed venous return from the extremities. Swedish Massage
shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic
acid, uric acid and other metabolic wastes. It improves circulation without
increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons, keeping them
supple. Swedish Massage also stimulates the skin and nervous system while at the
same time relaxing the nerves themselves. As it can help reduce emotional and
physical stress it is often recommended as part of a regular program for stress
management. It also has specific clinical uses in a medical or remedial therapy.
