Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD)
MLD (manual lymph drainage) is a light, skin stretching massage that helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid out of the swollen limb. When performed correctly with the correct pressure, direction and speed, MLD can greatly enhance recovery and facilitate drainage. It also has profound effects on systems in the body. For more information, check out the MLD page here.
Deep Tissue/Pain Management
Extensions of Swedish massage, deep tissue and pain management work are used to release chronically tight areas such as shoulders, glutes and lower backs. Therapists trained in these modalities utilize specific techniques to reach trouble spots. And, contrary to what you might have heard, this type of work should not leave you with bruises or residual pain that lingers for days.
Athletes at all levels know that to improve athletic performance they need to truly know their bodies. Along with proper nutrition, muscle recovery provided by sports massage enhances an athlete's training regime. The addition of sport specific stretches, compression and long, fluid strokes contribute to a soothing, rejuvenating massage for every athlete.
Having a baby? First of all: Congratulations!! Second, don't wait until you're in pain to get a massage. The old wives' tale of 'no massages until the second trimester' has been scientifically debunked, so begin pampering yourself (and baby!) from the get go. You'll be in side-lying position which provides comfort and support for both mother and child.
If you grind your teeth at night, clench your jaw while working or have pain and popping when you open your mouth, you might need some work on your TMJs. Massage therapists tend to misinterpret the signs of TMJ disorder (tightness in the jaw, neck, and upper back paired with headaches along the temple) as shoulder girdle and trapezius issues. I combine stretching and TMJ specific techniques to help restore balance to the client's jaw.
