Types of Treatments

Chair massage-What is it? Chair massage is a style of seated massage that is typically short 10 or 15 minutes -and focuses on your back, shoulders and neck and arms. Chair massage is done over clothes and doesn't require any massage oil. For chair massage, you are seated in a special chair with your face resting in a cradle, looking down towards the floor, with supports for your arms. Your back and neck completely relax while the therapist relieves muscle tension using Swedish massage moves like kneading and compression and tapotement.

Therapeutic massage-What is it? The intention and techniques are what make a therapeutic massage different from a relaxation massage or chair massage. A therapeutic massage is intended to affect certain areas whereas a relaxation massage generally covers most areas of the body. Many therapists use specific neural muscular therapy and connective tissue release techniques during a therapeutic massage. Swedish massage is a common protocol for a relaxation massage.

This treatment is done on a table.

Communication also differs in each type of massage. In a therapeutic massage, it is essential for the client to be an active participant and give the therapist feedback on pressure, sensation, and changes. In many relaxation massages, the client does not have to be active. Make an appointment with Jen (BodyWork Sign up link)

Self-Myofascial Release and Assisted Stretching techniques -What are they? Using a  simple piece of foam or massage sticks, you can improve flexibility, function, performance, and reduce injuries. Simply you can use your own body weight to roll on the round foam roll, massaging away restrictions to normal soft-tissue extensibility with an assitance of a CMES or by having a CMES guide a massage stick across muscle groups. After the release is done guided and assisted stretches are performed to restore the muscle back to its normal resting length by the CMES.
