Therapeutic Massage

You’re stressed out. Your shoulder muscles have turned to rocks. Or you feel so jumpy you could crawl out of your own skin. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if someone could smooth away your tension with the touch their hands? Someone probably can. Research shows that the simple kneading and stroking of a good massage can make a big difference in your mental and physical health. Just one session can reduce stress and help you get a good night’s sleep. Regular sessions may ease chronic pain, speed recovery from many sports injuries, make your muscles more supple, and improve concentration. With more than a dozen types of therapeutic massage to choose from, chances are good that you’ll find a rub that’s right for you.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber’s of the muscles, tendons and fascia. Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain. Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. However, if the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.

Swedish Style Massage

Swedish massage is what most people think of when massage is mentioned. It is a relaxing style using long strokes, kneading and passive movements. This style promotes deep relaxation, relieves general muscle tension, and increases circulation of blood and lymph.

Sports Therapy Massage

Sports Massage is often based on Swedish massage and uses techniques such as deep tissue work, cross-fiber friction, trigger points and stretching. It enhances the removal of metabolic wastes and relieves muscle soreness caused from workouts or competition. It can enhance an athlete’s sport performance and extend their career. Back in Balance offers sports massage sessions specifically designed for each athlete and where they are in their training.

Pregnancy Massage

Because many pregnant women feel discomfort and added stress on their bodies at various points of the pregnancies, more women are discovering and benefiting from Prenatal Massage. Prenatal Massage is a form of therapeutic bodywork which focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes leading up to childbirth. The techniques used enhance the well being of both mother and baby. Please mention your pregnancy when booking your appointment, and bring an extra pillow, or body pillow.
