Focused Therapeutic Massage
This type of massage session will focus on the deeper muscles and holding patterns with the intent of improving diagnosed medical conditions or pathologies. Aiding chronic muscular and inflammation-related pain by applying deep pressure integrated with Neuromuscular, Deep Tissue, and Trigger Point Therapy techniques. This approach brings about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. It enhances the function of joints, muscles, and movement, and it releases endorphins, the body's own natural pain killers.
A Japanese massage technique translating to ‘finger-pressure’, this modality will focus towards promoting self-healing. Invigorating and fully-clothed Shiatsu utilizes acupressure points, softening techniques, and stretching through the use of fingers, hands elbows, knees, and sometimes feet. Traditionally Shiatsu is applied on a thick mat so the person receiving the massage can achieve full range of motion, if needed Shiatsu can be adapted to a table. The positive and healing intent behind the work is meant to stimulate and unblock the flow of the body’s energy, increase joint mobility and muscle flexibility, and maintain general health.
