Conversion option 1: For the same price as a regular Swedish Massage you may integrate the following therapeutic techniques into your session:

          Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD)

Type of massage  performed to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch or about 4 kPa) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.

Facial Massage

Massage is a mandatory procedure for skin care face and body. Using some techniques it is possible to treat various skin diseases, with the help of others to rejuvenate the skin, improve its condition, smooth out the wrinkles. Using myofascial massage eliminates deformation of the connective tissue of the body, give it the form and allow free movement. The effects of massage can be noticed after conducting 2-3 procedures. Massage can get rid of muscle spasms and tension, wrinkles on the forehead, at the corners of the eyes, smooth nasolabial triangle. In this case, normal operation of the nervous system, improves blood circulation with the addition of oxygen and nutrients to the brain, normal heart rhythm and breathing, there is a persistent glow and fresh look of the face and body. 

Pelvic Floor Release 

Pelvic Floor Muscles respond well to therapy. Childbirth, life long constipation, trauma, injury, abdominal surgeries, among other things, can contribute to weakened pelvic floor muscles. Damage to the pelvic floor contributes to urinary incontinence and can lead to pelvic organ prolapse. Prolapse occurs in women when pelvic organs (bladder, rectum, vagina or uterus) protrude into or outside of the vagina. Pelvic Floor Massage can strengthen and tone pelvic floor muscles. This can create a stronger and stable pelvic floor, release tight and sore areas in and around the pelvic region and facilitate blood flow in ischemic areas and allow the body to reorganize around the work. The body wants to be in alignment to work correctly and damaged soft tissue can be retrained with massage. I only focus on the external areas, if you require internal work I can give you instructions on how to perform self massage in the privacy of your own home.

Insomnia Massage 

This type of massage is dedicated to those who suffer from conditions like insomnia or restless leg syndrome(RLS). This particular massage modality takes place at bedtime, I will massage you until  you fall asleep for the night so there needs to be a pre-arranged plan for the therapist to leave your home without waking you up. This can be coordinated with another family member or some other method. 


Conversion option 2: For the same price as a regular Deep-tissue Massage you may integrate the following therapeutic techniques into your session:

Clinical Massage

Also called therapeutic or medical massage. Typical goals include reducing pain, increasing range of motion, improving posture and reducing fluid retention (edema). The massage room may seem more like a doctor’s office and the sessions are short. Clinical massage might be prescribed by a doctor and covered by insurance. The clinical massage therapist customizes a treatment plan to target the client’s specific problem and only treats that area, not the whole body. Clinical massage therapists may have additional training in one or more specialty areas. This creates a wide variety of approaches to clinical massage using many different techniques.

Sports massage

Sports massage is different than the clinical or relaxation massage you might be used to receiving at the Spa or chiropractors office. Sports massage is usually performed on a client dressed in loose clothing and involves applying therapeutic massage and stretching to assist an athlete’s performance or speed recovery from an activity. The type of sports massage you receive is based on your goal and when you get your massage in relation to the event.

  • Pre-Event massage is usually 10-30 minutes long and generally happens the day of and prior to the event. The focus is on preparation for high-intensity activity not to correct dysfunction or reduce stress. Therapists will use compression, kneading, ROM & active stretching, vibration and tapotement–all performed at an “up-tempo” pace. Remember, the goal is get the athlete AMPED UP. 
  • Inter-Event massage can happen between events happening on the same day. Similar to pre-event massage, it’s fast-paced and typically no more than 10 minutes.
  • Post-Event massage happens after the event, usually within 72 hours. It’s focused on recovery, increasing circulation, reducing muscle tension and overall calming the athlete. Therapists use effleurage (stroking), petrissage (kneading), broadening compression, joint mobilization, and assisted stretching. No deep tissue work, muscles need to recover more before that happens. Sessions are usually 30-45 minutes plus assessment & aftercare counseling.
  • Maintenance massage is a regular clinical massage and happens during the training program. It’s typically 60-90 minutes focused on paying attention to rehabilitation and/or chronic issues, like that frozen shoulder or crazy sore calves. It’s an opportunity to deal with both biomechanical issues and overload (or training errors). This is where deep-tissue & targeted Swedish massage, stretches, friction and trigger point work are appropriate.  

Equine Massage

Equine massage is the therapeutic application of massage techniques developed and used by human athletes, applied to the horse. It has been credited with increasing performance level, competitiveness and endurance. In addition, massage assists in prevention of debilitating muscular injuries and in speeding injury recovery time. Benefits are most notable in improved performance as well as injury prevention to the horse. (learn more)
