The following are general descriptions of massage and relaxation techniques that I use in my work. Each session is tailored for the needs of each individual. In addition to massage techniques, healing visualizations and deep breathing (breathwork) may also be used to individualize each session and maximize the benefits received.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is designed to reach the deep portions of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibers. Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, its purpose is to unstick the fibers of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension.
This special form of massage is typically used before, during, and after athletic events to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. Depending on the needs of the athlete, a variety of techniques are used including classic Swedish strokes, cross-fiber friction, pressure-point work, and joint mobilization.
Swedish massage is now known as "traditional" massage. Developed in the 1820's, Swedish massage includes long gliding strokes (effleurage), kneading (petrissage), friction, tapping (tapotement), and shaking motions. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin, the body's largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and wellbeing.
