Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind most frequently when people think about massage therapy and technique. The primary goal of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.
However, Swedish massage therapy goes far beyond simple relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and increasing flexibility; all while easing mental and physical tension.
Additional Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, and percussion-like tapping, as well as bending and stretching. Before and during your Swedish massage therapy session, communication is encouraged with your licensed massage therapist so that your massage is customized to your specific needs and desires.

The cost for an 80 minute Swedish Massage Therapy session is $85.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, however a much deeper pressure is applied to the body and muscles withing. It is extremely beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension, as the focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding the muscles, joints and bones).
Deep tissue massage is often the best choice for certain painful or stiff "troubled spots" in one's body. Your massage therapist uses slow, powerful strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic; relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscular injuries.
Deep tissue massage helps ease stress and tension, which can have a beneficial effect on blood pressure. Recipients often see healthy drops in both their systolic and diastolic pressure. Finally, deep tissue massage therapy can help increase the body's production of serotonin, the hormone that promotes happiness and good feelings.

Trigger Point Massage
A "trigger point" is a tight area within the muscle tissue that causes pain in another portion of the body. A trigger point in the spinal area, for example, may produce referral pain in one's neck. The neck, now acting as a satellite trigger point, may then cause pain in the head. The pain may be anything from a sharp and intense pain to a dull ache.
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of one's pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. This type of massage therapy has the recipient actively participating in the process through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of one's pain or discomfort.
The benefits of trigger point massage include releasing constricted areas in the muscles and relaxing the body, thus alleviating related pain. You can expect a significant decrease in pain after a single treatment. Receiving trigger point massage therapy on a regular basis may assist the body in naturally managing pain and stress due to chronic injuries.
