Swedish massage can be customized to the client's preference to range from gentle to deep tissue work for an all over, full body relaxing massage or focusing upon a specific problem area. After discussing your concerns with the therapist, a customized plan for your massage can be developed to make the most out of your appointment.

Myofascial Release Massage
This is a soft tissue therapy for the treatment of skeletal muscle immobility and pain. Fascia is a web like structure that covers every tissue in our bodies. During myofascial release therapy, the therapist locates myofacial areas that feel stiff and fixed instead of elastic and movable. These locations of restrictions can lead to muscle restrictions and decreased joint movements, which can lead to widespread muscle discomfort. This technique incorporates light touch to allow restrictions to relax in problem areas over a series a minutes. An entire session can be devoted to this modality or more usually is performed prior to addressing a problem area before other techniques are utilized during the appointment.
