TYPES OF MASSAGES
The skilled RMT’s at Massage Matters are trained in various techniques that will help you live your best life. Each massage is a custom treatment; designed by your RMT based on your individual needs. At Massage Matters we listen, we care, and we deliver to ensure that we are helping you take care of what matters most.
Turn up the pressure with Deep Tissue massage therapy at Massage Matters. Deep Tissue massage focuses on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia to address chronic pain and injury. Deep Tissue massage is known to create a better range of motion for joints and muscles by releasing resistant knots and promoting scar tissue recovery.
Athletic injury? Sports Massage focuses on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Athletes of every kind, from professionals to weekend joggers, can benefit from Sports Massage as it promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares the body and mind for optimal performance.
Swedish massage may be the most popular type of massage performed today, with one of the primary goals to relax the entire body. With this type of treatment your RMT will use long gliding strokes at a light to medium pressure and will adjust based on your specific needs. Increasing blood oxygen levels, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation, flexibility and easing tension are other benefits of Swedish massage.
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a great way to continue living your best life while bringing another life into the world. Prenatal massage can help relieve many discomforts of pregnancy including aching muscles in the back and neck, leg cramps, headaches, and swelling. It also encourages blood circulation, reduces stress, and can help ease emotions caused by hormonal changes.
Are you experiencing muscle tightness that is having an impact on your flexibility? Myofascial Release is a method used to breakdown scar tissue and loosen the fascia to promote muscle recovery, reduce muscle spasms, increase flexibility and restore good posture. Myofascial Release will help your body feel free again, getting you back to living your best life so you can be doing what matters most.
When tight areas within a muscle cause pain in other parts of the body Trigger Point Release may be used to minimize discomfort. Trigger Point Release is a method in which direct pressure is applied to specific areas on tender muscle tissue to reduce muscle tension and promote pain relief. By releasing the trigger point muscles will be on their way to a faster recovery with less referral pain to other areas of the body.
Enhance your treatment and take your experience at Massage Matters to the next level. Our enhancers can be added to your treatment and provide an increased therapeutic effect. Try our hot stones, our hot towel & cold stone face massage, or our peppermint foot scrub.
Hot stone therapy helps your muscles relax, allowing the massage therapist to manipulate your deep tissues more effectively. The heated stones may provide the extra relations you need for the massage to be beneficial in releasing tension and easing sore muscles.
Soothe irritation and relieve congestion with our cold stone face massage. Alternating hot towels and cold stones – a technique known as thermal contrasting – helps stimulate organ reflexes and blood vessels, increase blood flow to areas with inadequate circulations, help remove impurities and give skin a firmer texture.
Relieve tired feet and legs with this invigorating foot scrub to compliment your body massage. The peppermint allows for an energizing cooling sensation while the salts exfoliate, soften, and hydrate.
