Sports Massage

Available for 60 ($105) or 70 ($115) Minute Sessions.


Our Sports Massage is great for our athletically active clients. It is designed to increase blood flow to the muscle tissue by using shorter brisk massage strokes. We also work to increase range of motion by using a couple of stretching techniques - Active Isolated Stretching and PNF Stretching. Another technique we use in this massage is myofascial release. It helps to increase range of motion. This is not a pre-event or post-event massage. The intention is to help our physically active clients maintain their athleticism and range of motion while warding of aches and pains.


Deep Tissue Massage

Available 60 ($105), 70 ($115) and 90 ($145) minute sessions.


Deep tissue is not only about applying more pressure, it also addresses deeper lying muscles. Muscles like subscapularis and tibialis posterior are typically passed by in a traditional massage because of the discomfort caused by accessing these muscle tissues. However, if you are one who can withstand the discomfort, then you can get the benefits of massaging the deeper muscle tissue.

Our Massage Techniques

Learn more here about the techniques we integrate into our Tranquility Massages. We use our experience to determine which techniques to use and which muscle or muscle group to use them. There is never an upcharge when we use these techniques in our massages.


Swedish

Swedish Massage is the basis for almost all other massage techniques and modalities. Its signature is a long, flowing stroke that follows the muscle tissue from end-to-end. The strokes always follow in a direction toward the heart. In addition to being a calming, relaxing technique, Swedish strokes enable the therapist to uncover problem areas that may be tender or tight.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue is not only about applying more pressure, it also addresses deeper lying muscles. Muscles like subscapularis and tibialis posterior are typically passed by in a traditional massage because of the discomfort caused by accessing these muscle tissues. However, if you are one who can withstand the discomfort, then you can get the benefits of massaging the deeper muscle tissue.

Trigger Point

The best way I have found to describe a Trigger Point is this: A muscle cramp is caused by an entire muscle contracting uncontrollably. A Trigger Point is when only a small part of the muscle contracts without releasing over time. You may or may not feel a trigger point but they usually can cause a rather persistant ache or pain. They can also 'refer' pain. For example, a trigger point in one part of the body can be the cause of an ache or pain in a different body part. Massage therapists typically use a 'press, hold and release' technique directly on a trigger point thus releasing the muscle and relieving the pain.

Lymphatic Drainage

Your lymphatic system is very basically your body's sewage system. It can get clogged and as a result cause the appearance of swelling and inflammation. You may experience aches, pains, and a reduction in range of motion where joints are involved. Lymphatic drainage massage is an extremely light touch. Light massage strokes are strategically applied beginning at the far drainage end for the affected tissue and working toward the affected area. In effect, the technique opens clogged drains in order to get lymph flowing again.

Myofascial Release

Ahh yes...Myofascial Release...not for the faint of heart! This technique is typically applied without the use of massage oil. Without oil, a therapist can pin down a muscle and place drag and tension on it by moving the joint or performing a deep stroke along the muscle fiber. The intention is to release and unbind myofascial tissue. The client can experience a dramatic range of motion increase along with a reduction of pain in the affected area when myofascial release is properly applied.

Active Isolation Stretching

Active Isolated Stretching is a stretching technique to isolate the muscle to be stretched. Not only does it isolate the muscle but it also employs a technique to 'trick' the brain into lengthening the muscle. Rather than the typical 'stretch and hold' method that we've all been taught, the active isolated stretch is held for only 2 seconds. The stretch is then released. Each stretch is repeated for 8 to 10 reps. This method is utilized by the U.S. Olympic Team and many professional athletes.

Cupping

Picture massage as the application of pressure from the outside in. Cupping is the opposite. A massage cup is applied to the body and a vacuum is created inside the cup. This vacuum has a pulling effect thus applying pressure from the inside out. The result is that blood is pulled into the area. The blood provides oxygen and nutrients to the affected muscle tissue. Moreover, stagnant blood and toxins are coaxed out of the tissue and removed by the new flowing blood and lymphatic fluids. The result is relief!

Myoskeletal Alignment

Myoskeletal Alignment Techniques are applied to aid in body balance. You may have experienced pains that occur only on one side of the body. This is very typical. It could be that one side of your body is used more in your everyday activities. Myoskeletal helps the therapists to locate imbalances in your body and apply directed pressure in a joint to loosen tight connective tissue.

Hot Stone

Hot Stones are often associated with total relaxation. And they are relaxing! They also serve as a very important component in a therapeutic session. Heat from the stones can draw blood to the area they are applied. This is important to help a muscle to repair, if necessary. The heat could also assist in releasing a muscle. We use stones in most of our massages as both a relaxation and therapeutic tool (no extra charge).
