Sports Massage

Sports Massage

This treatment is custom tailored to you and your needs. If you need to address a specific complaint or injury, I will focus more on that region. If your need is for a more general full body session to help remove lactic acid build-up, the massage is directed that way. There are a number of maintenance issues and injuries that come with being the best at what you do, and sports massage therapy with range of motion care can help. I can help you prepare for any event, recover from it, or simply provide maintenance.

Sports Massage featuring SPORT Therapy SPORT Therapy® (Sports Performance Optimization & Recovery Technique) is a signature fusion of leading-edge massage techniques such as deep tissue, trigger point, facilitated stretching which can be sports-specific.

Thai Full Body Massage

Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The client is required to wear loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. Thai massage involves a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures. The massage generally follows designated lines ("sen") in the body. I will utilise my hands and feet to deliver the massage.

A full Thai massage session typically lasts up to two hours or more and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, and moving the client’s body into many different positions. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which I will alter to suit the requirements of the client.

Swedish Massage

Swedish/Aromatherapy Massage

Swedish 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. Also it can boost the immune cells that may help fight colds and the flu. Communication is encouraged with your professional massage therapist so that your massage is customized to your specific needs.
