Modalities of Massage Offered:
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy - LDT is a gentle, hands-on technique that manually stimulates and sustains proper functioning of the human fluid system.  It helps the Lymphatic System to eliminate stagnant fluids (oedema), detoxify, regenerate tissues and stimulate the immune system.  For more information visit: http://www.chiklyinstitute.org/ldt/applications.htm
Swedish-Swedish massage manipulates the superficial layers of the muscles to:
  • Reduce muscle soreness and stiffness
  • Increase blood circulation and oxygen flow
  • Stretch muscles, ligaments and tendons
  • Help restore muscle tone
  • Increase joint flexibility
  • Relax the body and mind
    Deep Tissue - focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles, connective tissue and fascia through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted and restricted areas.  It is common to feel sore for a day or two following the massage.  Common ailments addressed:
  • Chronic pain
  • Limited Range of Motion
  • Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury)
  • Repetitive strain injury (e.g. carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow)
  • Postural problems
  • Muscle tension or spasm
    Trigger Point Therapy - Trigger points are small, local contractions in muscle fibers (or "knots") that occur from trauma, overuse or malnourishment.  They create predictable pain patterns locally or, very often, in other parts of the body.  The pain usually isn't where the problem is--for example, a headache can originate from a contracted muscle fiber in the neck!  Trigger Point Therapy is helpful for an long list of ailments including headaches, carpal tunnel symdrome, frozen shoulder, bursitis, sciatica, etc.
