(Swedish) Relaxation Massage looks at the body as a whole. Using a variety of strokes the intention of a relaxation massage is to create an overall mental, physical and spiritual state of well-being. Relaxation massage lowers stress levels, improves both vascular and lymphatic circulation, lowers blood pressure, improves mental clarity and decreases muscular tension.
Sport Massage/Therapeutic Massage
(Deep tissue) massage is a type of massage aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue. Deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as Swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots (also known as “adhesions.”)
Also known as myofascial trigger points, are areas of hyperirritability in the soft tissue structure. These can be acute sources of pain or latent, unnoticed by the client until pressure is applied by the practitioner. Trigger points are manifested as small contraction knots in the muscles, that control the state of contraction and active ones may cause muscle spasm and referred pain
Massage therapy can help TMJ sufferers for the obvious reason relaxing your muscles as well as aiding in de-stressing you.
The benefits of massage are not limited to your TMJ but as you may be highly stressed massage will help you learn how to relax and unclench knotted muscles in your shoulders, neck and face, including your jaw.
External and intraoral massage is an effective treatment for clients who suffer from TMJ dysfunction, trigger point-related headaches or excess jaw tension. Latex-free gloves are worn while working inside the mouth to release the muscles and fascia involved in mastication and jaw clenching.
Prenatal Massage focuses on the mother-to-be as she goes through the changes due to pregnancy. This is not a replacement for medical care, but rather as an adjunct to aid in the health and rapid recovery of the mother. Certified therapists will focus treatment on the concerns of each trimester
