Massage Specializations:

Swedish massage

Includes long gliding strokes, kneading, friction, tapping, and shaking motions. It is effective for most ailments, because massaging the skin, the body’s largest organ, sets up a chain reaction that produces a positive effect on all layers and systems of the body. It affects the nerves, muscles, glands, and circulation, and promotes health and wellbeing.

Deep Tissue Massage

Designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. The term “deep tissue” is often misused to identify a massage that is performed with sustained deep pressure. Deep tissue massage is a separate category of massage therapy, used to treat particular musculoskeletal disorders and complaints and employs a dedicated set of techniques and strokes to achieve a measure of relief. It should not be confused with “deep pressure” massage, which is one that is performed with sustained strong, occasionally intense pressure throughout an entire full-body session. Deep tissue massage is applied to both the superficial and deep layers of muscles, fascia, and other structures.

Trigger Point – Deep Muscle Massage

Designed to reach the deep portions of thick muscles, specifically the individual muscle fibers. Using deep muscle compression and friction along the grain of the muscle, its purpose is to unstick the fibers of the muscles and release both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension.

Myofascial  Release Therapy

All muscles, arteries, bones, organs, etc. are held together by a Saran wrap kind of tissue called fascia. Myofascial Release works by the manipulation of the fascia that connects and surrounds muscles. Because the fascia is body-wide, a tension or trauma in one part of the body can affect another part. The fascia responds to the trained touch to release the adverse effects of inflammation, tensions and trauma.

Neuromuscular Therapy

A program of recovery from acute and chronic pain syndromes by utilizing specific massage therapy, including the pressure of trigger points, to eliminate the causes of pain patterns. This approach brings about balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. It enhances the function of joints, muscles, and movement, and it releases endorphins, the body’s own natural pain killers.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy is used for helping with inflammation, blood flow and deep tissue knots.  It’s history dates back thousands of years.  The process consists of a therapist putting special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction that reportedly removes toxins from the area.

  • “Regina is AMAZING! I have nagging lower back issues from cycling long distances and painful IT band that pops up from time to time. Regina’s individual approach is customized to meet my needs versus the “big box” same service for all mentality I have experienced elsewhere. She, through consistent treatments and stretching exercises, has been able to alleviate my issues. I now see her twice a month for maintenance work, pre and post race tweaking too. I am hooked!”
