Massage Therapy Modalities  Top ˆ

Swedish Massage is most often used by student therapists at our clinic. It incorporates long, flowing and relaxing strokes that soothe muscles and promote relaxation. Students are encouraged to incorporate other modalities into the Swedish massage  as they learn them.

Shiatsu works with the meridians of the body, just as with acupuncture.  This form of bodywork helps clear energy blocks and restore balance in the body.  Client lays on a floor mat dressed in loose clothing.  Shiatsu may also be done on a massage table incorporated with Swedish massage.

Myofascial Release (MFR)  is a therapeutic treatment that works with fascia.  This modality utilizes gentle stretching and holds to lessen pain and restore motion.

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) offers a light touch to track the craniosacral rhythm.  CST uses delicate manual techniques to release imbalances and restrictions in the body.

Polarity Therapy incorporates holds on “Polarity Points” on the body.  Developed by an osteopath, its purpose is to work with the energy fields of the body to restore balance.
