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.
A deeper, but no less relaxing form of massage that utilizes the therapist’s hands, feet, and body weight and assisted passive stretching of the client to engage the muscle tissue and fascia. Clients are fully clothed for this form of massage and no oils or lotions are used. A comfortable floor mat is used for this session, which allows the therapist to take advantage of using her feet and body weight. Comfortable clothing should be worn for this session, which allows the client to move and stretch. T-shirt and sweatpants are ideal. No denim, please! *Note: If you are interested in receiving a Thai massage, please let Dr. Alaina know upon scheduling, so she can plan accordingly.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue 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 the deep tissue 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 to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
