Swedish Massage, often referred to as the “relaxation massage,” focuses primarily on relieving stress by settling the body’s nervous system; this modality promotes calming and relaxation of the mind and body.
Your Massage Heights therapist will use friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, as well as a range of long, smooth strokes and kneading performed at your chosen pressure. Your therapist may also integrate active and passive movements of the joints.
Swedish Massage is just one of the massage modalities we may incorporate as we customize your massage.
A couples massage is an experience for two that encompasses massage’s mental and physical benefits while promoting relationship health.
Our couples massage encompasses the same great experience you have come to expect and enjoy at Massage Heights. This experience still provides our signature massage tables and linens but is offered in a larger retreat room with two therapists who customize the session to each client’s needs while coordinating their start and finish times.
Experience the gift of self-care and relaxation with someone you love in one of our inviting couples therapy rooms.
Please Note: While it is common to choose a couples massage as part of a romantic experience with a spouse, girlfriend, or boyfriend, it is our experience that this treatment is often scheduled with a friend or other loved one.
Prenatal (pregnancy) massage is a term used for any hands-on massage during or after pregnancy. At Massage Heights, prenatal massage is like any regular massage, tailored specifically to the client’s needs and their changing bodies. However, therapists exercise extra caution to avoid putting undue pressure on contraindicated areas. They may also use unique positions to ensure the comfort and safety of mom and baby.
By relaxing the nervous system and increasing blood circulation, prenatal massage helps ease tension, body aches, and overall pain brought on naturally by pregnancy. Increased blood flow associated with massage can also promote increased oxygen and nutrient flow to the baby.
Please Note: At Massage Heights, prenatal massages are done only by certified therapists who have received specialized training. Additionally, even though massage can be received at any time throughout pregnancy, there is generally an increased risk of miscarriage during the 1st trimester. Due to this increased risk, as per company policy, Massage Heights offers prenatal massage during the 2nd and 3rd trimesters only. We also encourage clients to consult their physician before receiving massage treatments to ensure massage is suitable for them during their pregnancy journey.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep Tissue Massage is primarily used to treat musculoskeletal issues, such as strains and injuries. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension within the body. By applying sustained pressure during slow, deep strokes and deep finger pressure on contracted areas, deep tissue massage can target the deep inner layers of your muscle and connective tissue. Deep tissue massage strokes can either follow or move across the grain of the muscles, tendons, and fascia. Overall, it can help reduce pain, increase range of motion, relieve muscle spasms, and improve circulation.
Deep Tissue Massage is just one of the massage modalities we may incorporate as we customize your massage.
Sports massage is the manual manipulation of the muscles geared toward individuals with physically demanding lifestyles or hobbies and is designed to improve physical performance and prevent injuries. This massage modality considers the impact of the client’s daily activities on specific joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and soft tissue groups.
Sports Massage can be characterized in two ways: pre-activity and post-activity.
Pre-activity massage uses dynamic stretching to allow the connective tissue to work through a full range of motion, reducing potential injury.
Post-activity massage focuses on recovering the muscle tissue impacted during activity and utilizes long strokes to flush out toxins that cause soreness in the muscles and joints.
