Stress is an attributing factor to muscle soreness, but massage helps to relax muscles and reduce pain. By using specific techniques, tension is removed from the muscles and increase flexibility. Increased blood flow facilitated by massage also delivers oxygen and nutrients to the muscles, which leads to a reduction in pain, inflammation, and stiffness.
Lymphatic Massage (Manual Lymphatic Drainage)
Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other conditions.
Deep tissue massage breaks down the adhesions to restore natural movement and reduce pain, and repeated massage sessions can break up and even eliminate the presence of scar tissue.
Trigger Point Therapy
A trigger point otherwise often referred to as a “trigger site” or “muscle knot,” is a very tender spot in the body. Often, trigger points are isolated within a muscle group that when stimulated will cause shooting pain in other areas of the body.
LaStone® Hot Stone Therapy
Smooth stones are heated in a controlled temperature bath and placed directly on the body. Aches and pains are soothed as muscles and joints receive direct, transferred heat from the warm stones. The temperature of the stones remains constant between 122-127 degrees Fahrenheit, which allows for just enough heat to relax the entire body while warming tight muscles.
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a simple procedure involving light, therapeutic touch administered to the head, neck, and other troublesome areas that prevent the exchange of cerebrospinal fluid (or what is called arterial pressure) throughout the body, targeting cranial bone movement.
Reflexology allows the body to release that stress, which contributes to repair, relief and healing. Reflexology is believed to be effective, in part, because the skin on the feet and hands are incredibly thin and therefore, a person has more access to the numerous nerve endings located within those appendages. The nerves act as a mirror of sorts for one another.
