Different Types of Massages
Therapeutic Massages for MVA
Client Rehabilitative Massage – Rehabilitative massage is designed to support healing of injuries and restoring full range of motion. Active Release, Myofascial Release, and Neuromuscular Therapy are examples of rehabilitative massage techniques that locate the source of spasms and tension. The therapist focuses on these muscles to restore them to your natural state.
Client Myofascial Release – Myofascial release involves applying gentle, sustained pressure to the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions. The massage relaxes the contracted muscles and increases nervous and lymphatic drainage. Myofascial release treats somatic body dysfunction and relieves the accompanying pain and limited range of motion.
Therapeutic Massage for Wellness Care/Relaxation
Client Relaxation Massage – The goal of a relaxation massage is to relax you. This type of massage is gentle and less intense than some of the other styles. The therapist gently works the uppers layers of the muscle tissue to increase relaxation. Relaxation massage is a total experience as it is performed in a dim setting, with candles and sometimes scented oils.
Client Swedish Massage – Swedish massage increases blood circulation to more than 4 times its normal rate. The massage releases the stagnant toxins stored in the muscle fibers. The result is fresh oxygenated blood flow into the muscles, which boosts energy levels.
