Swedish Massageswedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. as the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals 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. but swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep Tissue Massagedeep tissue massage therapy is similar to swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. the focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Sports Massagesports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. the particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete's sport of choice. focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
Reflexology Massagefoot reflexology massage can be a deeply relaxing and therapeutic modality for those suffering from plantar fasciitis, ankle injuries or even everyday work and play. at massage envy, your massage therapist will apply traditional swedish and sports massage techniques to the foot, calf and upper leg. this will not only help relieve toe pain, ankle pain, plantar fasciitis and common forms of arthritis, but can also decrease stress and anxiety in the entire body. in addition, a variety of stretches can be beneficial. with pain and sensitivity in the foot, heel and calf areas, be sure to communicate your pain levels with your massage therapist during your treatment. it is also a good idea to rest after receiving the reflexology massage.
Cranial Sacral Therapycranial sacral therapy (also known as craniosacral therapy) is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. the goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain.
