List of Massage Therapies

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage offers a myriad of benefits for both physical and mental health, making it an ideal choice for those seeking relief from various conditions. This therapeutic technique focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue, aiming to release chronic muscle tension and knots. By applying firm pressure and slow strokes, deep tissue massage helps to improve blood circulation, which can speed up the healing process of injured muscles and reduce inflammation. This, in turn, can alleviate pain and improve range of motion, making it particularly beneficial for individuals suffering from conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, and lower back pain. Additionally, the intense nature of the massage can also have a profound calming effect, reducing stress levels and promoting relaxation. This not only improves overall wellbeing but can also enhance sleep quality and boost mood. Ultimately, deep tissue massage is not just about physical relief; it's a holistic approach to healing that nurtures both the body and the mind.

Tian Ma Tui Na

Tui Na Massage differs from regular deep tissue massage as it uses more of an holistic approach in treatment and works on the areas around the injury too to help the whole body. There is often more stretching and articulation techniques as well as shaking and vibrating movements too. Where as deep tissue and sports massage often rely more on pressing and kneading techniques on the specific muscles.
The approach used here on the realignment of structure and instead of using motions to try and “crack” or manipulate these. The idea is that the muscles and the soft tissue are out of balance and that tightness in these muscles are pulling the harder structures such as bone out of place. So releasing the muscles will help them realign and be less likely to move out of line
