• Deep tissue massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue. It releases chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions and lingering injuries. Soreness is pretty common after a deep tissue treatment; you should drink plenty of water to aid in flushing and removing toxins released during the session. Benefits of deep tissue include deep muscle healing.

• Myofascial release (MFR) is a technique using sustained pressure on “restrictions” to eliminate pain and restore motion. Fascia, the web of tissue permeating the entire inside of the body, maintains structural integrity, provides support and protection, and acts as a shock absorber. When fascia are tight, or “restricted,” tension, pain or loss of motion can follow. Benefits of MFR include: increased strength and flexibility, improved posture, increased range of motion.

• Shiatsu is based on traditional Chinese medicine in which illness is thought to result from imbalances in the natural flow of energy, or qi (pronounced “chee”) in the body. The massage therapist applies gentle finger or thumb pressure in a continuous rhythmic sequence to manipulate energetic pathways, or “meridians.” Benefits of Shiatsu include: calmer nervous system, improved circulation, relief of stiff muscles, overall sense of balance, calmness and well-being.

• Swedish is a relaxing massage using oils or lotions to deliver rolling, kneading and percussion (tapping) strokes to help improve circulation. Benefits of Swedish include: relief from aches and pains, decreased stress, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, greater flexibility.
