A Registered Massage Therapist will use long strokes, kneading and using circular movements in order to relax your body, increase your circulation, and improve your lymph drainage. This type of massage therapy is often considered to be more superficial in nature in comparison to deep tissue massage. Swedish Massage is ideal for improving circulation, reducing stress, easing tense muscles and light stretch of ligaments and tendons.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massageinvolves a Registered Massage Therapist applying slow strokes and firm pressure in order to reach deeper parts of your muscle and fascia. Deep TissueMassage is often recommended for individuals who suffer from chronic pain and injury. The goal of Deep Tissue Massage is to break down scar tissue that has formed due to injury, remove deep knots, flush out any toxins, and reintroduce proper movement patterns. Deep Tissue Massageis far more specific in nature in comparison to Swedish massage, and is often referred to as an athletic, or sports massage.
Prenatal massage is customized to the needs of pregnant women and their bodies. Our registered massage therapists are trained with techniques and positioning in order to provide the utmost comfort. Prenatal massage therapy aims to improve your circulation and mobility, reduce your tension andswelling, and help you relax. Prenatal massage varies upon your trimester comfort level. Chair massage is also available for prenatal massage.
Aromatherapy massage is a wonderful addition to any massage. During Aromatherapy Massagetreatment, high grade essential oils are added to the lotion as well as the room. Each essential oil has different properties and effects. Often, lavender is used to aid in relaxation, eucalyptus for decongestion during a cold or orange for an uplifting effect. At Be Well, we use the highest grade of essential oils, however, if you are sensitive to scents or have sensitive skin this may not be an appropriate choice for you. It is best to discuss this with your registered massage therapist so that they are able to guide you in the right direction.
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a technique that focuses on stretching and massaging connective tissue that is also known as fascia. These tissues surround the muscles throughout the body and separate the muscles from internal organs. When the connective tissue becomes tight and rigid, pain can occur. During this technique, a light, general, but sustained pressure is applied on the fascia that is rigid in order to increase movement and eliminate pain. This is an excellent addition to a treatment when you have found that your pain is not going away with regular techniques.
Trigger Point Therapy
Trigger point therapy is often used in deep tissue massage. This technique involves finding a hyper-irritable spot, also known as a trigger point, and applying pressure directly on that area until the pain is lessened or gone in that area. Myofascial release and trigger point therapy are often used together in sequence depending on the needs of the client. Trigger point therapy is often uncomfortable, and therefore the registered massage therapist and client must work together. Trigger points therapy is very effective in chronic pain, injury, and muscle overuse.
Tension Headache Massage
Tension headaches are the most common type of headache. Tension headache massage focuses primary on the muscles in the neck and shoulders in order to help individuals who suffer from headaches. There are specific muscles that are located in the neck and shoulders that are responsible for headaches and during this treatment, layers upon layers of tension are released. This treatment is ideal for someone who has chronic headaches and cannot seem to find the cause or solution.
Reiki is an energy healing practice that uses the hands. The therapist will scan the body to see if there are any blocks in that body that need to be removed. These blocks can often translate into pain or emotional discomfort. The registered massage therapist will then use their palms in order to channel reiki healing energy and then apply this energy to you without any physical touch. Reiki is used in conjunction with massage therapy in order to facilitate the healing process. The concept is that reiki is able to use the bodies energy in order to support the body in its natural healing ability. The length of the reiki is dependent on the needs of the client.
Cupping involves the use of a plastic or silicone cup that is suctioned to the skin in order to draw blood to the affected area, to increase blood flow and remove stagnant blood and poor energy flow. This treatment is used in addition to regular massage therapy as a way to remove toxins from the body and therefore promote healthy blood flow which aid in recovery. This type of treatment leaves a mark on the skin but is not to be confused with a bruise due to the fact that the cup does not cause the tissue damage that is associated with a bruise. This mark generally leaves within 3-7 days.
