What types of Massage Therapy
are offered at The Reiki Center?
Relaxation and Restorative Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper
layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns
of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger
pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going
across the fibers of the muscles, tendons and fascia. The purpose
is to retrain the fibers of a muscle while releasing deeply-held
patterns of tension, removing toxins, while relaxing and soothing
the muscle. It is both corrective and therapeutic.
Stress permeates every aspect of our lives, but many people do
not consider the overwhelming effect it has on health and wellness.
Its effects can be felt physically, mentally, and emotionally.
Everyday life can be as stressful as overwhelming events. As
a first line of defense, massage can aid in grounding and centering.
Massage helps restore balance, providing relief from the sometimes
helpless, out-of-control feeling that stress can cause. The
techniques associated with stress relief are more general in
nature, applied in a more relaxed manner and can promote a
general sense of well-being.
Trigger Point (Neuromuscular Therapy)
Neuromuscular (Trigger Point) Massage is a successful therapy
for pain relief. The techniques used very specifically target
knots in muscle and other related tissues that trigger pain.
Direct pressure within the client’s comfort zone is applied
to the points, helping them to release painful holding patterns.
It is an excellent choice in treating acute or chronic tension,
pain or injury.
Medical Massage addresses specific medical conditions. Usually
the treatments are joined together with a chiropractor, physical
therapist or PCP. Some conditions that respond well to Medical
Massage are TMJ, Sciatica, Whiplash, Overuse & Repetitive
Use Injuries and Postural Issues.
