SERVICES OFFERED BY KT:
MASSAGE THERAPY—DEEP TISSUE OR SWEDISH
Research and clinical studies prove that massage therapy’s advantages include much more than just relaxation. The medicinal benefits of therapeutic massage can have a positive, lasting impact on your overall health and lifestyle. It can rid your body of every day stresses, reduce muscle pain and tension, help alleviate the discomfort of certain ailments and help restore balance to your body and mind. Deep Tissue Massage uses varying degrees of pressure to release chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscles, tendons, and fascia. Swedish Massage uses light strokes to calm the nervous system, reducing anxiety and tension in the body. Deep Tissue or Swedish Massages can be done as an individual session or combined in one session if needed or requested.
Massage w/Hot Stones
Hot Stone Massage Therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness, and increases circulation and metabolism. The premise behind hot stone massage is that the warmth of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing deeper access to the muscle layers. Combining hot stones with a full body massage provides a very healing experience. The hot stones expand blood vessels, which encourage blood flow throughout the body.
Myofascial work releases restrictions in the fascia, or sheets of connective tissue, which hold the muscles in place. Its long, slow strokes and restoring stretches are not painful, feel very good, and leave you feeling more loose, open, expanded, and able to move and breathe better. Neuromuscular Therapy is a form of advanced deep tissue work, which releases holding patterns that keep us in discomfort within muscles, fascia, and connective tissue. It increases range of motion, and restores the body to its loose and natural state. Neuromuscular Therapy involves long, myofascial strokes and techniques like trigger point release.
Sports Massage/Sports Rehab
Sports Massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity, to maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.
