Swedish Massage is a widely recognized type of bodywork that flushes toxins from the muscles, improves oxygenation and circulation and provides full body recovery. Characterized by long, even pressure across muscle groups, this type of massage will be found beneficial by nearly all patients seeking relief from mild to moderate muscle discomfort.
For nagging pains or ongoing injury, Trigger Point Release techniques work not only with deep muscular issues but also nerve and joint pain. Use of Trigger Point Massage provides relief from pain and also trains muscle groups to return to effective functioning following trauma or damage.
For ongoing discomfort and loss of function due to muscle shortness and tightness, Myofascial Massage yields positive results by applying gentle pressure to connective tissues. Benefits include skeletal muscle alignment, improved lymphatic and blood circulation and alleviation of chronic pain.
