Medical massage is outcome based massage therapy in which the treatment focuses on a systemic condition (such as fibromyalgia), or focused work, such as healing from a sprain. For focused work, typically the treatment is 30-45 min, with only working on one area of the body for that specific concern. Treatment for a systemic condition focuses on musculature, fascia and lymphatics that are affected by the condition within the body as a whole.
-Swedish (Classic Relaxation)
Swedish massage is a classic relaxation massage which uses gliding techniques of effleurage and petrissage to loosen tight musculature and fascia and helps stimulate the lymphatic vessels. Strokes are applied towards the heart, lessening the load on the contraction of the heart muscle which stimulates deep relaxation.
Deep tissue massage therapy is treatment that focuses on the deeper layers of musculature and fascia. Techniques are used such as deeper effleurage and petrissage (swedish strokes), muscle stripping (bringing healthy blood to the targeted band of muscle), trigger point therapy (targeted, focused work on trigger points/areas of hyperirritable muscle cells) and myofascial release (targeting adhesions in the superficial and deep layers of fascia).
(Foot) reflexology is focused work on specific areas of the feet that correspond to organs, body systems and areas of the body. The thought is that by affecting these areas on the feet, the body is brought to a state of homeostasis.
Shiatsu is Japanese massage meaning "finger pressure." It is acupressure performed with loose fitting clothing, along the acupuncture meridians. Stretches and palm pressure are performed on certain meridians (body pathways that correspond to specific organs). The practitioner focuses on moving the body's vital force, called "Qi" or "Ki". The thought is that by bringing the body's life force back into balance, health is achieved.
