Swedish massage is a tried-but-true method for maximum relaxation and stress relief. The massage therapist will guide their strokes back towards the heart using mild to moderate pressure. Strokes are long and fluid with a feeling of connecting all parts of the body.
Moms-to-be are in extra need of some relaxation, and our massage therapists deliver with one of the best prenatal massages available on the Gulf coast. We provide all of the comfort measures needed for pregnant women to fully enjoy the massage experience, including table modifications, pillows and cushions, and baby-safe positioning. (Note: prenatal massage is only available for expectant moms in their second or third trimesters)
If painful scar tissue or adhesions due to injury, immobility, chronic disease, or surgery are your problem, then deep tissue massage is the answer. Deep tissue massage uses slow, firm strokes to focus on pain muscle and surrounding fascia. While some believe deep tissue is just a more intense version of a Swedish massage, the technique is actually quite different and yields different results.
People often forget that the elderly can still benefit from therapeutic massage. By improving circulation and releasing muscle tension, geriatric massage can give older adults a much better quality of life. Our therapists are trained to cater to the specific needs of this population, including very light pressure to prevent skin tearing.
Athletes have special physical needs and a massage is a great tool for them to use in their training arsenal. Massage promotes top performance and quick recovery while enhancing flexibility and cardiovascular health. Massage also prevents scar tissue buildup from minor injuries that may otherwise go undetected.
Trigger points are painful knots that form in the muscle fibers and actually shorten their length. This creates tension in the muscle that not only hurts, it can also affect your mobility. Our massage therapists are trained to recognize the signs of trigger points, locate them, and effectively eliminate them with direct, deep, and intense pressure. Immediate relief may be felt, but continued treatments will bring the best results.
