Massage Services

Replenish Center for Wellness offers the following types of massage

Swedish Massage
Swedish Massage is the most common form of massage and the basis for most other techniques. Five basic strokes are used to relax muscles, provide stretch and improve circulation. Oil is applied and worked smoothly and slowly over the muscles, making it the best massage for relaxation. Swedish can be done lightly or deeply – the amount of pressure is determined by the client. Clients can choose a whole body massage or request work on a specific area, such as the lower back, neck and shoulders. Strokes are always done toward the heart to promote better circulation of blood and lymphatic fluid.

Neuromuscular Technique
The Neuromuscular Technique was developed by osteopathic physicians and chiropractors as a way to make their adjustments last longer. The strokes, which are done in a precise manner and sequence, facilitate communication between the central and peripheral nervous system to help bring the body back into alignment. It is a wonderful technique for pain and discomfort, but also to reduce anxiety as it helps balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.

Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on deeper layers of tissue. It helps release chronic patterns of muscle tension and knots in the deeper tissue structure of muscle and fascia. Deep tissue can be done with deep, slow strokes in the direction of muscle fibers, and across muscle fibers. Direct pressure to painful areas, known as trigger point therapy, also helps relieve discomfort. Deep tissue technique can be done alone, or added into a Swedish or neuromuscular massage.

Lymphatic Massage
Lymphatic Massage gently stimulates the lymphatic system to cleanse the body of toxins. Lymph, a body fluid that is part of your immune system, is the body’s defense against bacteria, viruses and immune system disorders. Lymphatic massage prevents stagnation of lymphatic fluid to promote well-being. It is a wonderful massage if you are feeling a bit under the weather as it helps your body rid what’s ailing you.

Medical Massage
Medical Massage is treatment dictated by a  prescription  from a medical provider. Treatment consists of a precise pattern of movements designed to affect a maximum level of relief in a minimal amount of time. For more information about this therapy and medical massage rates, please ask your therapist.
