Massage is an ancient healing art. From the first child whose mother rubbed herbs and oils on his/her body or the woman who rubbed her man’s shoulders when he ached from the hunt or the emperor who had servants anointing his skin with oil, the art developed from an act of love as well as from need.

 

At Restorative Massage, our trained, licensed professionals work with you to facilitate your body’s innate ability to heal. Trained in various modalities and specialties, we are sure you will find the right fit for you.  Below is a description of the modalities currently on offer.

 

Swedish- Using firm but gentle pressure to improve circulation, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation. The movements include long, gliding strokes, kneading of individual muscles, friction, tapotement and vibration.

 

Deep Tissue- Deep tissue is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes as Swedish are used, but the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.

 

NeuroMuscular Therapy- NeuroMuscular therapy utilizes static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.

 

Subtle NeuroMuscular Bodywork- NeuroMuscular therapy utilizes static pressure on specific myofascial points to relieve pain. With Subtle NeuroMuscular Bodywork, the therapist uses neuromuscular therapy combined with energy healing and accupressure enabling deep and profound releases in compressed and distressed tissue. The idea is to dance with the tissue, using only the amount of pressure necessary to maintain space for tension release.

 

MyoFascial Release- Myofascial Release, developed by John Barnes, is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. For more information visit myofascialrelease.com.
