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.

Orthopedic Massage:

Today’s manual therapist needs to have multiple skills in order to address a wide variety of complicated musculoskeletal pain conditions.  This unique total system consists of orthopedic assessment, clinical reasoning, multidisciplinary and multi-modality therapies, and precise corrective stretching and strengthening exercises.  Orthopedic Massage Therapy integrates the skills of leading practitioners from the fields of massage therapy, physical therapy, athletic training, personal training, osteopathic and chiropractic to restore balance, posture, function and pain free living.  Treating conditions such as tendonitis and tendinous of the elbow, plantar fasciitis, pronator teres  syndrome, carpal tunnel syndrome, tenosynovitis, fixated joints, and trigger finger.

Deep Tissue:

is a form of massage therapy that is used to realign the deeper layers of the muscles and connective tissues—addressing and resolving the underlying problems that can lead to chronic pain and stiffness. It differs from regular massage treatments; in that it addresses deeper, more rooted issues in the muscles and ligaments, and allows treatments to be more vigorous, successful and long-lasting.

Many people try a variety of massage treatments before moving toward deep tissue massage. Because treatment may be viewed as a “last resort”, it is often covered by insurance benefits.

When a person experiences ongoing stiffness, tension, or sustained injury to their muscles, tendons and ligaments, these form a band of rigid inflexible tissues called adhesions (known colloquially as “knots”). While most adhesions are relatively minor, extreme cases can block circulation, limit movement and flexibility, and be extremely painful. Often, the only way to address these adhesions is through deep tissue massage treatments.

Myofascial:

 
Meghan Haggett, Licensed Massage Therapist
Myofascial release is important because it allows you body to move more fluidly and efficiently. Myofascial release is also a proven effective treatment for chronic pain.

Fascia is connective tissue that surrounds everything within the body. It allows muscles, organs, skin ect to glide over each other while allowing movement and preventing friction. Healthy fascia has a gel like consistency but when it becomes stagnant it becomes thicker and stickier. Sometimes this stickiness can restrict movement. When it does start becoming sticky and preventing movement it is a vicious circle because without movement it becomes stickier and causes more restriction. This is where myofascial release is important. Your therapist’s hands go in and move the fascia around using various techniques allowing it to become less sticky. Fascial work can range from very light skin movement to bone deep and is typically done without lubrication. The intensity of this modality depends on the types of techniques used, how deep the therapist is going and how restricted the fascia is.

Personally as a massage therapist I specialize in myofascial release for professional athletes. The types of techniques I use and the depth I go can be immensely intense during the session. The safety word is pineapple. After my work is complete my players say that they feel instantly less restricted with increased range of motion and can feel their muscles firing more correctly, this prevents injury and allows their body to perform optimally for games.

Sports Massage:

Sports massage is a systematic manipulation of the soft tissues of the body that focuses on muscles relevant to a particular sport. Runner Paavo Nurmi, known as the "Flying Finn," was one of the early users of sports massage. Nurmi is said to have used sports massage during the 1924 Olympics in Paris where he won five gold medals. Jack Meagher is thought to be the father of sports massage in the United States.  Many different movements and techniques are used in sports massage. Examples of these techniques include; Swedish style massage, effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), compression, friction, tapotement (rhythmic striking), vibration, gliding, stretching, percussion, and trigger points. These movements and techniques are used to try to help the athlete's body achieve maximum performance and physical conditioning with a decreased chance of injury or pain and a quicker recovery.
