Modalities

The styles of massage that I am proficient in include the following:

Swedish
A variety of techniques designed to relax and elongate muscle fibers and connective tissue by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones. Swedish Massage is both therapeutic and relaxing.

Neuro-muscular
Also termed "Trigger Point" therapy, Neuro-muscular therapy is derived by applying pointed deep pressure to specific areas of muscle tension called trigger points. By apply such pressure over a sustained period of time the muscle tension releases. This, in turn, provides relief of muscle soreness and tension.

Deep Tissue
Slow, steady, heavy pressure applied to muscles using a variety of massage techniques. This style of massage is aimed at providing relief of muscle aches and pains. This style of massage is intended as a therapeutic modality primarily.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is similar to Swedish massage, only that it combines the use of heated stones as part of the massage to induced a deeper state of relaxation and therapeutic benefit.
