Clinical (a.k.a. Deep Tissue)
Clinical Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Clinical Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of clinical work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested..., why..., well, muscles love water!
Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Neuromuscular therapy is a system of massage techniques that were developed in the 1930's by Dr. Stanley Lief in England. It uses a holistic approach towards healing, emphasizing and stimulating the body's natural ability to heal itself. Neuromuscular therapy also enhances the function of joints and muscles, and accelerates the overall healing process by facilitating the release of endorphins. In my practice, I offer a Myofascial and Neuromuscular Therapy Approach to Chronic Pain: Head (Headaches and Migranes), Neck and Shoulder Pain.
Lower Leg and Foot Massage
"Massaging the feet can alleviate anxiety and bring about a deep state of relaxation. One important point that is situated on both feet is the solar plexus reflex. The solar plexus is sort of a little warehouse where all your stress is stored. When the solar plexus point is pressed on, stress is released and the body is renewed."
"The blood that circulates through the body is responsible for transporting oxygen and nutrition to the body’s cells. The blood also cleanses waste and toxins from the body. Because blood flow becomes limited when stress is present, foot massage can be beneficial as it decreases stress and allows the circulation of blood to flow unimpeded."
Face and Head/Scalp Massage
This relaxing session is used to relieve stress, migraine headache and sinus congestion. A scalp massage can help stimulate your nerves and blood vessels and calms muscle tension in your upper back, neck and scalp.
Therapeutic-Rock Tape! (Add-on)
How does rock tape work?
"Decompresses swelling and inflammation. When RockTape is applied to the skin, it has a microscopic lifting effect underneath the skin and between the many layers. This allows the by-products created by inflammation to be removed more quickly."
What does tape on muscles do?
"The tape was invented by Japanese chiropractor Kenzo Kase in the 1970s. The U.K. web site for Kinesio tape claims it can alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, relax muscles, enhance performance, and help with rehabilitation as well as supporting muscles."
Rock Tape is applied at the end of your massage and bodywork session is over. Rock Tape can be removed with a little baby or olive oil and can be worn up to 5 days.
On-site Chair/Table Massage
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
Do you need several therapists for your monthly Corporate massage program or maybe for a special event? No problem, I also work with some great LMT's from all over New Jersey!
