The father of Swedish massage (and also) physical therapy is Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) of Smaaland, Sweden, a physiologist and fencing master.
Swedish Massage is a soft-tissue massage used for relaxation. It consists of long strokes and kneading of the outer layers of muscle tissue to reduce stress. Light pressure is applied with the combination of different variety of strokes on the superficial muscles and tissues. Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology.
Swedish massage combined with hot lava stones promotes deep muscle and tissue relaxation.
Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations. Deep Tissue Massage targets the body's deepest layers of muscles and involves stronger pressure. This massage is a mix of slow, short, strokes, and penetrating finger pressure focused on tight, contracted areas and employing thumbs, forearms, and elbows to work muscle tissue and relive tension. The aim is to restore structural alignment and balance within the body by reducing chronic tensions, formed by deep muscular tension, which inhibits postural ease and movement. It works mainly on connective tissue or fascia, which raps, binds, supports, and separates all internal structures, including the skeletal muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and organs. It increases lymphatic flow, breaks up fibrosis that binds and glues one muscle fiber to another, relaxes muscle spasms and relives pain.
*** It CANNOT be combined with any promotions! ***
Heated lava stones are placed at specific sites on the client's body to promote relaxation and to help penetrate deeper into muscles. Muscles are pretreated with the heated stones to allow the therapist to more easily perform deep tissue manipulations.
Sports massage was originally developed to help athletes prepare their bodies for optimal performance, recover after a big event, or function well during training. Sports massage emphasizes prevention and healing of injuries to the muscles and tendons. It is detailed, focused, anatomically specific massage that targets and corrects your unique physical issues. It helps to break up scar tissue, loosens muscle fibers by separating them from one another so they can act freely, with more flexibility. Sports massage focuses on areas that are overused, ans stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Sprts Massage combined with HotStones increases the effectiveness of your massage.
A scalp massage is a head massage designed to relax the mind and encourage circulation. Massage can increase the production of certain chemicals in the body, including endorphins and serotonin. Scalp massage also can relieve pain by improving circulation and removing muscle tension. This can be especially helpful if you have a migraine or headache. Migraines are sometimes caused by a decrease in serotonin levels; scalp massage may be able to increase serotonin levels and relieve pain. Headaches, on the other hand, may be caused by muscle tension, which a scalp massage can also alleviate.
