Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Aquatic Massage is a gentle form of body therapy performed in body temp warm water, It combines elements of massage, joint mobilization, shiatsu, muscle stretching and dance. The receiver is continuously supported while being floated, cradled, rocked and stretched. The deeply relaxing effects of warm water and nurturing support, combine with gentle movements, stretches, massage and point work, to create a bodywork with a range of therapeutic benefits and healing on many levels.
Thai massage typically works with compression -- rhythmic pressing movements directed into muscle tissues by either the hand or fingers. Thai massage usually takes place on a futon mat on the floor, with the client wearing loose or stretchy clothing like yoga gear.
The therapist is also on the mat and moves your body into various stretches and positions, without any work on your part. This is why it is sometimes called "lazy man's yoga". Thai massage can be both relaxing and energizing, so it is a good choice if you want to be active after your massage.The therapist uses a variety of different sequences of techniques on clients, who are either laying face up, laying face down, seated, or on their side.
There is constant body contact between the therapist and the client, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
This is a combination Swedish / Deep Massage.
Cranial sacral is an add on therapy (also known as craniosacral therapy) is a gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain.Cranial sacral therapy seeks to restore the natural position of the bones and can decrease stress from chronic injuries as well as provide relief from migraine headaches, neck and back pain, temporomandibular joint disorder (the inflammation of the joint that connects the lower jaw to the skull) and more.
I have severe chronic back pain. Doctors have told me that my back is so bad and there is nothing that can be done for it.
I planned a trip to have a water massage session in St George with Tiffany Earl. I was so impressed by the whole experience! The water was warm and the atmosphere was pleasant and inviting. Tiffany's expertise and skill allowed me to be totally relaxed!
I could not believe how I felt after the experience!! My back pain went from a 10 to about a 2. It allowed me to actually function in my work responsibilities. I could walk straight and tall without being crooked and bent over. It helped me for 3 weeks. I later planned another trip and booked 3 appointments in 3 days. Tiffany's watsu therapy relaxes my muscles that have been so tense with pain. It has helped me where nothing else has.
Tiffany as you know in my job when I'm lifting literally thousands of pounds a day, a regular massage has been necessary. I am amazed every time of your knowledge and expertise in being able to find and track the tension in my body. Having had many massages, you are by far the top of the list and stand far above the rest.
After seeing you, I am relaxed and feel renewed . I look forward to my regular massages and especially to the aquatic massage.
That is one experience that I have never been so relaxed after. It is absolutely amazing. You are the best!
I have had many massages and they were good as far as massages go. But now that I have had the pleasure of receiving many massages from Katie and doing a water massage with Tiffany, I will continue to enjoy their intuitive and gifted hands. I now consider them my personal massage therapists.
I love how I feel during the massage. It seems like every cell in my body is saying thank you thank you.
I look forward each week to my massage day.
Thank you Katie and Tiffany.
I recently received a beautiful massage from Katie Rhoades. Her smile and enthusiastic personality made me feel comfortable and at ease. Her deep massage helped to release stress and tension. She was very attentive and therapeutic.l
I can't believe how fast Joseph's massage helped me. I have PTSD and usually when I get triggered it takes at least 3 to 7 days to calm down. After just 20 minutes of him including the cranial sacral techniques in my massage, I was completely relaxed and the panic was gone. After only 4 sessions with him my nervous system was re-trained and I could come out of panic attacks on my own! I still receive weekly sessions from Joseph. They are my favorite part of self-care!
The first professional massage I ever had was from Tiffany Earl. At that time in my life I was unemployed, had lost my business, was battling depression. I had a wife and 4 kids to take care of and Didn't know what to do.
She gave me a one hour massage, aligned my muscles, balanced my chakras, and told me that things were good.
I left that day feeling physically better. But the really amazing thing is that I have a woken up every day since then feeling emotionally better than I did before. I didn't know then that a massage could do that for me.
This was years ago. Since that time I too became a massage therapist. I now realize tat Tiffany is one of the great ones.
