Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic massage can be helpful to prevent and treat a variety of conditions. It is known to increase range of motion, decrease pain, improve the blood circulation, improve tissue health, maintain or increase the soft tissue function, decrease swelling and edema, decrease stress and anxiety (which can help to lower blood pressure), promote faster healing and decrease recovery times on injuries, promote relaxation, and relieve discomfort due to pregnancy, arthritis, fibromyalgiea and other pain syndromes.

Therapeutic massage makes use of a variety of techniques to relax, stimulate or stretch tissues like muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage is helpful to treat chronically tense and contracted areas, such as stiff necks, sore shoulders, and low back tightness.

The aim of this massage treatment is to realign the deeper layers of the tissue, which connects the muscles. Deep tissue massage uses strong pressure and strokes in slow movement, mostly concentrated on the areas of pain and tension. Muscles need to open during the treatment when deeper pressure is applied, so it is important to release tension and give the muscle the needed time.

Pregnancy Massage & Prenatal Massage

The aim of prenatal massage, or pregnancy massage, is to provide relieve of the symptoms that come with the extra weight in the belly of the pregnant person. Pregnancy massage takes care of the strain on back and neck, and additional tension on the neck. It also aids the circulatory and lymphatic systems, which keep the blood flowing to both, mother and baby. Further massage will help to stabilize the hormone levels and relieve tension throughout the body.

Pregnancy massage may also be helpful with the upcoming labour, and will further be beneficial after birth, helping to restore the body and energy levels.

Pregnancy massage does not make use of deep tissue work, and avoids certain areas of the body for the safety and comfort of mother and baby. It's important to properly position and support the body using pillows and padding. Pregnancy massage is not advisable for people with certain health conditions. To be on the safe side, please ask your doctor or therapist for advice.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point massage is a massage technique that helps alleviating pain, e.g. from chronic injuries. The massage treatment is releasing constricted areas in the muscles. Therefore only a single treatment may help to decrease pain significantly, and treatment on a regular basis may help to naturally manage pain and stress symptoms from chronic injuries.

Trigger points are tight areas within muscle tissue, that may cause pain in other areas of the body. Per example a trigger point at the back may help reducing pain in the neck. The therapist will apply cycles of isolated pressure and release during the massage, and with help of the patient identify the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.

Sports Massage & Injuries Massage

Sports massage is a specialized form of massage therapy for people participating in athletic activity or who work out often. It is used to help the body prepare for the burden of such activities, to prevent injuries, and to help the body recover from workouts. Sports massage can be applied before the event, after the event, and as a maintaining treatment.

Sports massage makes use of a combination of different stroke techniques. It is generally applied with faster strokes than e.g. relaxation massage, and uses facilitated stretching methods to loosen the muscles and increase flexibility.

Myofascial Massage

Myofascial massage is beneficial for the management of pain felt in a variety of conditions, like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and chronic back pain. It may further help with severe anxiety and tension, and it is used to treat repetitive stress injuries in the muscoloskeletal system, like e.g. trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, tenosynovitis, bursitis, tennis elbow and tendinitis.

Myofascial massage concentrates on the deep and connective tissues and its effect is to relax contracted muscles and increase the circulation of the blood and lymph fluids.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stone massage is a type of relaxation massage used to bring balance and well-being to the body, and to alleviate chronic and acute problems with muscle tension. The treatment may be beneficial against back pain and aches, poor blood circulation, arthritis, osteoarthritis, stress, anxiety and tension, insomnia and depression.

Hot stone massage is a lighter treatment than other relaxation massages, because the heat of the stones relaxes the muscles, allowing the therapist to reduce pressure. Per experience, people who tend to feel chilly or have cold feet, and those who prefer a lighter type of massage treatment choose hot stone massage. However, if preferred deeper pressure can be applied with this massage technique.

Myofascial Cupping

Myofascial cupping is a treatment to increase the blood supply and fluid movements to an injured area, and it is used to help with muscular pain and injuries, sporting injuries including ITB syndrome and planar fasciitis, neck and back pain, muscle tightness, strains and sprains.

During the treatment the therapist will apply plastic cups to the injured area and create a vacuum with a hand operated pump. Cups may be left for a few minutes or moved along the skin. The treatment is pain-free, but might leave behind a light discoloration, which will disappear a few days after the treatment.
