Massage Therapy: A Unique and Beneficial Experience, By Emily Counsellor LMT

MASSAGE THERAPY

ALL BODYWORK SERVICES ARE $105 PER HOUR  

THERAPEUTIC MASSAGE

Therapeutic Massage is a full body customized massage which includes the use of various techniques to include trigger point, deep penetrating hot/cold contrast, deep tissue, and swedish techniques (based upon individual assessment).

SWEDISH MASSAGE

Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don’t get too uncomfortable.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MANUAL THERAPY

Lymphatic Drainage Manual Therapy is a specialized body work technique that is provided by advanced trained licensed and certified health care practitioners such as nurses, massage therapists, and acupuncturists. This therapy applies repetitive pressure at lymph node sites and a stroking technique along lymph vessels that stimulates the movement of lymph fluid. This therapy assists with post surgical swelling and inflammation due to numerous heath complaints such as sinusitis, arthritis, gastritis, back pain, neck pain and more.

REFLEXOLOGY

Reflexology – The principles of reflexology embody techniques designed to keep the body’s systems operating at peak efficiency. Providing gentle pressure along points in the feet can help achieve balance in the body by normalizing the function of the internal organs and stimulating the body’s natural healing process.

TRIGGER POINT THERAPY

Trigger Point Therapy – A trigger point is a tight area within the muscle tissue that causes pain in other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referred pain in the neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. Trigger point massage therapy is specially designed to alleviate the pain at the source through cycles of isolated pressure and release. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can alleviate a lot of stress associated with chronic pain.

GERIATRIC MASSAGE

Geriatric Massage is designed to address the specific needs of the elderly. This type of massage uses gentle and light application of massage techniques with oil or lotion to permit your muscles to be worked on without excessive friction to the skin. Geriatric massage has been shown to relieve anxiety and provide comfort, especially to touch-deprived elderly clients.

When you think of massage therapy, do you think of a frivolous expense? Have you hesitated because you are unsure what to expect? Perhaps you took a chance and tried a massage and the experience was nowhere near what you were looking for. Let’s dispel some of the myths around massage therapy, shall we?

Massage therapy can be an intimidating venture because it requires vulnerability. All too often I hear that someone tried getting a massage, but it was an unpleasant experience. Part of this can be due to the business in which the massage is conducted, and other times the therapist and client are not a good match. Massage therapy is quite like handwriting- the principals of knowledge are the same but can be expressed differently by everyone. Some therapists are more medically oriented while others, like myself are more focused on the relaxation and rehabilitation of the full body.

Getting a massage can allow for a sacred healing space for 60 or 90 minutes where you can escape from the rest of the world and recharge your body. Any aches and pains that you have been feeling can be pinpointed and tended to, and the only responsibility the client has is to enjoy relaxation (and report on the pressure of course!). Massage improves circulation, increases metabolism, can improve quality and quantity of sleep, break up scar tissue from past surgeries or injuries, increase flexibility and skin elasticity. If you were waiting for an invitation, here it is! Book a massage with us at Flourish and see what we are all about!
