This massage technique uses slower, heavy strokes to target the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, to improve ROM, function, circulation, and chronic pain.
This is similar to Swedish massage, but it is geared toward people involved in running or sport activities to help prevent or treat injuries. Involves lots of stretching, active and passive release techniques, heating or cooling therapies, cupping, gua sha and trigger point treatments, myofascial release. Best for post workout.
CUPPING AND GUA SHA
This is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that uses tools to create "Sha" or marks on the skin, which promotes blood circulation, loosens tense tissues, and brings blood stagnation to the surface in order to promote healthy elimination. Used in conjunction with deep tissue therapies.
Fascia is a sheet of connective tissue, primarily collagen, beneath the skin that attaches, stabilizes, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs.This technique is a slow, deep massage that doesn't require oil or lotion; that works to break up adhered fascia to allow proper flow of lymph and blood, improve range of motion and diminish pain. This technique is often utilized in a 60 min deep tissue but can also be requested on its own.
