Massages in Boulder City

 
Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is the most common and best known type of massage. Its main focus is relaxation, but it can also be beneficial in relieving tension and increasing circulation.

 

A Swedish Massage involves soft, long kneading strokes that combines several techniques including:

 

  • Effleurage - a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue

  • Petrissage - the squeezing, rolling or kneading used after effleurage

  • Friction - deep circular movements that cause layers to rub against each other to help increase blood flow and break down scar tissue

  • Tapotement- a short, alternating tap done with cupped hands, fingers, or edge of the hand

  • Vibration - a fine, gentle trembling/shaking movement of the tissues performed using the hand or fingers

 
Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is similar to Swedish Massage but uses slow, firm strokes and focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue and fascia.

 

Muscles easily become tense from sitting in front of a computer for long periods of time, exercise and injuries, so this type of massage can help relieve pain, stress and improve range of motion for many people.

The addition of hot stones increases effectiveness as they warm the tissue for deeper work and doTERRA's™ Deep Blue rub is excellent for particularly sore muscles.

 
Trigger Point Therapy

This type of massage is used in conjunction with a Deep Tissue Massage.

 

Trigger points are sore spots in the muscle that refer pain to another part of the body, usually caused by muscular overload.  For example, a trigger point in the back may refer pain to your neck caused by over-exertion or repetitive stress.

 

The results and benefits of Trigger Point Therapy is releasing constricted areas in the muscles and therefore relieving pain.

 
Hot Stone Massage

Hot Stone Massage involves the use of heated stones (typically river rocks) with Swedish Massage techniques.

 

Warm stones and body oil are used on parts used on parts of the body to provide maximum therapeutic benefit by allowing the loosening of the muscle and deeper penetration into it.

Hot Stone massage can be very beneficial in reducing pain and muscle spasms, reduce chronic stress and tension and increase joint flexibility.

Sports Massage

Sports Massage is geared toward athletes of every kind because it focuses on areas that are overused and stressed from repetitive movements.

 

In addition to being an excellent part of muscle recovery, sports massages promote flexibility, reduce muscle fatigue and proactively help prevent injuries.

A Sports Massage can be combined with a Swedish Massage or a Deep Tissue Massage and as stretching is involved, undergarments are advised.

Developed by Dr. David Hill, a leading expert in integrative medicine and therapeutic applications of essential oils, the AromaTouch Technique involves the use of eight oils that promote relaxation and stress relief, offer immune support, decrease pain and inflammation and elevate mood.
