Massage Therapy

Having a massage does more than just relax your body and mind – there are specific physiological and psychological changes which occur, even more so when massage is utilized as a preventative, frequent therapy and not simply mere luxury. Massage not only feels good, but it can help you to self-heal.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is the most commonly used form of massage and it is the basis for all other types of therapeutic massage in the U.S. There are 5 types of strokes used in Swedish; the most common ones are long gliding strokes and kneading. Swedish massage can be slow and gentle or vigorous and bracing.

Swedish massage, one of the oldest forms of massage practiced, brings you a sense of deep relaxation while stimulating blood flow which can improve circulation.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a type of massage therapy that works below the superficial muscles and focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and fascia (connective tissue surrounding muscles). It physically breaks down adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement function.

Deep tissue is slow and the pressure is deep and concentrated on areas of tension and pain, and is usually done in combination with Neuromuscular Therapy, Myofascial Release, and joint movements & stretching. There might be some areas of discomfort or “sweet pain” during deep tissue work but it should never be intensely painful. Always let your massage therapist know if the pressure is painful. There might be some soreness following this type of massage but should not last more than a day.

The ancient Greek physician, Hippocrates, born 460 BC, is considered the father of modern medicine and one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. He stated, “Healing begins with an aromatic bath and daily massage.”

Most people do not have the time or resources to partake of Hippocrates’ recommendation, but his advice emphasizes the importance of bodywork in order to maintain good health and to keep disease at bay. Our body and mind work together and are designed to self-heal. This can only be accomplished when we are feeling relaxed and peaceful. It is the first and foremost goal of massage to brings us into that tranquil place of healing.

The therapy studio at Healing Arts is quiet, clean, and beautifully appointed to ensure a safe atmosphere of relaxation and peaceful comfort. Time is allocated before each session to communicate with you and to listen to any muscular/skeletal symptoms, and needs or concerns you may have. Each massage is designed and customized according to your requests. Your session can be therapeutic, incorporating Swedish with Deep Tissue techniques of Myofascial Release and Trigger Point Therapy, or the soothing Hawaiian style Lomi Lomi for the ultimate relaxation, or a combination of both.

Oncology massage for people going through treatment or post treatment is an effective complementary and integrative therapy, as is Sports Massage for those in training and for pre and post sporting events.

The many benefits of bodywork include enhancing blood and lymph circulation, strengthening the immune system, relaxing muscle tension, increasing flexibility, plus improving cognitive thinking and our overall state of mind.
