Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

The fascia is an incredibly strong, elastic, fluid-filled connective tissue that surrounds and runs through every muscle, organ, nerve, and blood vessel in our bodies. Traumas, stresses, and illnesses can cause these tissues to become dehydrated and tough, thereby restricting the optimal motions or functions of the surrounding structures. MFR uses slow, sustained pressures and tensions to heat, rehydrate, and elongate the fascia so that optimal performance is obtained.
Cupping is a therapy in which Glass, Silicon or Plastic cups are suctioned onto specific muscles or tendons through negative pressure. The pulling force of the suction places a specific stretch on the muscle, and when massaged with a cup, elongates the muscle and breaks down adhesions in the tissue. Cupping stimulates the lymphatic system and increases blood flow to the muscles and skin. This increase in circulation allows for a faster elimination of pain-causing substances and as a result, pain is reduced.
Cupping is beneficial for the treatment of pain syndromes, injuries, tension, and for boosting the immune system.

There are a few more than 620 potential trigger points possible in human muscles. These trigger points, when they become active or latent, show up in the same places in muscles in every person. An active trigger point is one that actively refers pain either locally or to another location. A latent trigger point is one that exists, but does not yet refer pain actively, but may do so when pressure or strain is applied to the myoskeletal structure containing the trigger point. Latent trigger points can influence muscle activation patterns, which can result in poorer muscle coordination and balance.
A successful treatment protocol relies on identifying trigger points, resolving them.

A relaxation massage is a rather straightforward session using classic Swedish massage techniques. The massage therapist will use light to medium pressure, depending on the client’s preference, and the intent of the session is to help the client relax, and reducing stress.

Works on the bases of using heated stones to penetrate the tissues at a deeper level and alter the physiological state of those tissues. The heat works to soften and melt the tissues while the manual pressure of the therapist permits the breaking up of adhesion’s and fibrous scar tissue. This technique can also be employed as a relaxation tool.

The Craniosacral system is made up of the bones of the skull and sacrum (the base of the spine), and the membranes and fluid that surround the brain and spinal cord. Through traumas, stresses, and illnesses, the joints become stuck and the membranes become restricted and tough. Craniosacral therapy works with a light, gentle pressure to normalize the motions of the joints and elasticity of the membranes. Craniosacral therapy can assist with headaches, concussions, traumatic injuries and chronic illnesses.

A manual therapy that incorporates gentle massage techniques applied to the organs located in the abdominal and pelvic areas, helps restore proper motility and functioning of the colon and other organs.
The Bowen Technique is a gentle form of bodywork in which a series of precisely placed thumb and finger motions are done over tendons, muscles or nerves, sending messages deep into the body, retrieving memory of a preferred, relaxed, balanced way of well-being. Bowen Therapy addresses not only the musculoskeletal framework, but also the fascia, nerves, and internal organs. It can assist recovery from many conditions from traumatic injury to chronic illness, depending on each individual’s capacity to heal.

Consists of gentle, rhythmic massaging of the skin to stimulate the lymph nodes to open and drain. The rhythmic massage also encourages an increase of the natural circulation of the lymph through the body. The lymph system depends on peristalsis and the movement of skeletal muscles to squeeze fluid through lymph ducts and vessels.
Nerves run deep to muscle tissues and can compress, occlude, or damage the nerve fibers. By manually releasing the muscle tissues it takes the compression forces off of the nerve fibers, allowing proper nerve transmission and stimulation throughout the body.
