Traditional Thai Massage:
Thai massage (Thai Bodywork or Thai Yoga) is a unique and efficacious form of massage that was first introduced over 2500 years ago. Thai massage is also referred to as “Nuad Boran” in Thailand, which translates to “ancient massage”. It is considered energizing , yet meditative and relaxing. It is also a great modality for anyone looking to reduce pain, expedite recovery, reduce stress, increase range of motion, or aid in injury prevention. It’s like doing yoga without having to do the work. The therapist takes clients through various poses and stretches while applying compression to muscle tissue, tendons, and acupressure points. Thai bodywork is traditionally done on a cushioned floor mat. The client remains fully dressed and is encouraged to wear or bring comfortable yoga or gym clothes.
Swedish massage is a very relaxing modality that helps to reduce stress and muscle tension . It is performed using oils, creams, and lotions with the client undressed and respectfully draped with sheets and towels.
Deep Tissue/Myofascial/Trigger Point
This includes a combination of various compressions and strokes done with and without oils and creams. Some people believe that deep tissue massage is supposed to be very painful. This is not true. Working deep muscle tissue can be very effective without pain when approached the right way. Due to the use of oils, clients undress before treatment. Sheets and towels are used to cover all areas not being worked on.
Massage is great for before or after a sporting event. Pre-event is not a time for relaxing or deep work. We work with athletes using techniques to help tonify muscles and prepare them for the event. Post-event relaxation is okay but really deep should wait about 3 days. Passive and active range of motion techniques can also help clients to recover faster.
