Massage Therapy

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage, Massage Therapy, Grass Valley, CASwedish Massage is the most commonly offered and best-known type of massage.  It incorporates smooth, gliding strokes with other techniques such as kneading, friction and stretching. Feel free to state your preference for pressure during Swedish massage.  Swedish massage can range from light to firm and usually includes some deeper work on areas of specific muscle tension.  This firm but gentle pressure is used to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and reduce pain and discomfort.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and connective tissue. Deep Tissue massage aims to release these chronic patterns and tension by using slow strokes and deep finger pressure.  These techniques can either follow or go across the fibers of the muscles, tendons and fascia. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who: are involved in heavy physical activity, are athletes; experience consistent pain; or have sustained physical injury.

Massage - Hot Basalt StoneHot Basalt Stone

Hot Stone Massage combines thermotherapy with traditional massage practices. The deep penetrating heat of the black, basalt stones increases circulation in the body. The increased circulation nourishes the body’s cells and improves the healing process. This type of massage deepens relaxation and promotes health and well-being.

Prenatal Massage

Prenatal Massage is similar to traditional massage in that the goals are to relax tense muscles, ease sore spots, improve circulation and mobility, and make you feel good.  The difference is that it is tailored specifically to the needs of a pregnant woman and her changing body.  You can choose to lie face down on a bodyCusion™ or lie on your side while supported by pillows and bolsters. Prenatal massage can reduce back pain, neck pain, swelling in ankles and feet, improve muscle tone, and stimulate the circulatory system.  In general, prenatal massage has far more benefits than risks. However, in a high risk pregnancy, it is a good idea to consult an ob-gyn before getting a massage.

Oncology Massage

Oncology Massage, Reflexology, AcupressureOncology Massage can help to relieve the adverse symptoms of invasive and aggressive medical procedures associated with the treatment of cancer.  Oncology massage incorporates reflexology and acupressure to help with pain, nausea, loss of appetite, poor digestion, inability to sleep as well as other symptoms of cancer and related cancer treatments.  The gentle and nurturing massage aids in healing, promotes relaxation and can therefore reduce the stress associated with cancer, chemotherapy, radiation and surgery.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a massage that focuses on the hands and feet of the client.  Each body part is represented in “reflex maps” located on the hands and feet.  Pressure is applied to different reflexes in the hands and feet which stimulate the nerve endings and distribute blood flow to the correlating body parts and organs. Reflexology massage encourages the body to correct and heal itself.

Acupressure

Acupressure is a massage modality in which pressure (ranging from gentle to firm) is applied to key points on the body. Acupressure massage is used to release muscle tension, increase blood flow and stimulate the body’s self healing abilities.  Acupressure is usually incorporated into a massage along with other massage therapy techniques.
