Wide range of massage therapy services
Swedish Massage: encompasses several techniques and is the foundation for most massage modalities.
Compression: Direct pressure downward into the tissues compressing and squeezing the tissue against the bone.
Effleurage: Gliding over the superficial portion of the skin without attempt to affect the deeper structures.
Pettrissage: Kneading or rolling the tissue for the purpose of lifting tissue up and away from the bone attachments.
Tapotement/Percussion: Tapping, slapping or pounding with soft hands or fists in a rhythmic motion to stimulate the nervous and vascular systems.
Vibration: Jostling or shaking movement of the tissue to relax (light pressure) or stimulate (heavier pressure). Affects may also be adjusted by speed and type of movement.
Friction: Rubbing of one tissue surface over another as in moving a muscle over its underlying bone.
Swedish Deep Tissue Massage
Similar to Swedish Massage, but focusing primarily on the tendon attachments to the bone and with specific intent of affecting the deeper tissues such as when attempting to affect deeper muscles in heavily layered areas of the body.
Any technique designed to work with or retrain proprioception or neural communication to and from a muscle used primarily for working with people suffering with muscle weakness or atrophy, due to neural interference, Apraxia or other neuromuscular issues.
When employed by a skilled technician this technique can have a great affect in helping to treat and restore muscles and neural pathways that have been effected by stroke, MS, or other neural related ailments or diseases.
Trigger Point Therapy
A form of neuromuscular work utilizing specific pressure or trigger points located in various areas around the body to affect changes in muscular tonicity and neural communication.
Many trigger points follow along similar points and pathways as the meridians and tsubo utilized in acupuncture and acupressure in Eastern medicine.
A form of therapy by which even (usually broad) sustained pressure is applied to a muscles or muscle groups in order to separate muscle fibers, muscles and muscle groups by stretching and restoring movement of the fascial membranes (connective tisues) surrounding the primary structures of the body.
This technique is highly effective in restoring flexibility to scar tissue from surgery or injuries as well as for treating ailments and diseases characterized by severe muscular restriction, seizure, and apraxia such as plantar fasciitis, cerebral palsy, MS, and muscular dystrophy.
Range of Motion (ROM) and Stretching
Techniques designed to prepare joints, tendons and ligaments for other therapy techniques or to improve and restore motion to restricted joints. This technique is highly effective in treating ailments such as frozen shoulder, severe muscle cramping, as well as treatment for joint replacement surgery in restoring full use of the affected joints.
Postural and Structural Analysis
A technique wherein a practiced therapist will assess posture and structural positioning of the body as well as ROM of various joints in order to formulate a plan of therapy based on the particular dysfunctions found in the process of the analysis.
All massage therapy tends to stimulate the Lymph system in some way but this specific technique is designed to generally utilize light pressure strokes, in very specific patterns in order to open, stimulate and improve flow of lymphatic fluid through the lymph vessels. The Lymph System is an integral part of the human immune system making this a very powerful technique for helping to stimulate healthy immune response.
It is also highly effective in treating patients who are suffering with Lymphedema (swelling and fluid retention) or have recently undergone surgeries such as liposuction, breast enhancement/reduction, Brazilian butt lifts, and other restorative and reconstructive surgical procedures.
Cranial Sacral Therapy
A technique that works primarily, as its name indicates, with the areas of the axial skeleton from the cranium to the sacrum. This subtle, but powerful technique can stimulate and improve flow of Cerebral Spinal Fluid through the Central Nervous System and make subtle adjustments to the ligament like sutures found between the cranial and pelvic bones.
An ancient Eastern technique designed to apply healing through reflexive junctions found in the feet and hands that are linked through energetic pathways in the body known as meridians to other structures. This technique is effective in treatment where the area requiring work cannot or should not be touched directly.
A form of energy work; to find out more see the Mystic River Reiki page of our website.
A technique providing improved vascular circulation and aiding the woman’s body to better undergo the physical changes happening to her body during pregnancy. Moisturizing the skin, soothing and relieving stress and providing relaxation to the client can help with issues ranging from mood swings, back, leg and pelvic discomfort and skin stretching, and swelling around legs, ankles, and other areas of the body.
A technique which can be helpful in aiding the woman’s body in returning to her pre-pregnancy condition. Research has shown that massage can aid in stimulating the re-contraction of the uterine wall as well as stimulating vascular and lymphatic flow to aid in helping the body move additional fat stores built up for energy storage and to help stimulate and restore muscular tonicity to areas that have been stretched during pregnancy.
Although there is no substitute for mommy or daddy’s touch for your baby a qualified massage therapist can help to stimulate baby’s muscular coordination, tonicity, and neuromuscular response. Baby will also experience improved vascular and lymphatic flow through properly administered touch.
A highly specialized technique of tissue cleansing and detoxification utilizing water to irrigate and cleanse the colon (large intestine). Similar to an enema, but much deeper and more gentle in the sense that it penetrates throughout the entire length of the colon instead of just the sigmoid colon and the therapist is in constant contact with the client massaging the abdominal region during the session.
