LifeWorks Massage Therapy – Modality Descriptions

Therapeutic Massage

Craniosacral Therapy (CST)

Craniosacral Therapy encourages the body’s natural healing system to improve the function of the Central Nervous System. It can be helpful in nervous disorders, motor coordination problems, ADD, insomnia, and headache for example. The therapist uses a light touch to assist in the balance of the natural rhythm of the cerebrospinal fluid.

Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. It is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscles and connective tissue (fascia). *Included in other massage modalities.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy is a massage modality which helps to bring balance between the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system. It uses advanced techniques of trigger point pressure therapy to break the stress-tension-pain cycle. It improves the function of joint, muscles, and movement as it releases endorphins, which are the body’s own natural pain killers.

Sports

Sports massage is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery with the use of specific strokes and stretches that help the athlete obtain their best performance and physical conditioning with less chance of pain or injury. The benefits of sports massage are increasing power, endurance and flexibility before, during, and after an event.

Prenatal

Prenatal massage is massage that is ONLY done during the 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy. We have pillows and wedges to make the client comfortable while the therapist does the massage.

Swedish

Swedish massage uses a system of long, gliding strokes, kneading, friction, percussive and shaking or vibration techniques on the muscles which can be used with oils or creams. Swedish massage relieves muscle tension, reduces anxiety, strengthens the immune system, improves blood circulation, detoxifies, balances the nervous system, and promotes the state of deep relaxation, therefore promoting health and well-being.
