This is the quintessential massage that most people picture when they imagine a massage with long flowing strokes designed for relaxation. This can be combined with some deeper, more focused work. I ask that you undress to your level of comfort. You will be covered by a sheet for modesty.
If you are experiencing pain or discomfort due to Trigger Points, then neuromuscular massage is a great way to focus in depth on your most troublesome areas. This work addresses an area or two in great detail. It can sometimes feel painful in the moment, but ideally helps relieve your pain. This can be combined with a more relaxing massage.
This type of massage is best done in the second and third trimesters unless you are already receiving regular massages. During the first trimester, your body is going through enough changes. Pregnancy massage is a great way to take care of yourself while you are expecting. It is specifically tailored to focus on the areas that might feel most stressed and it avoids all points that might cause premature contractions.
Fascia is the connective tissue that binds everything in your body together. If it is restricted, your muscles can't relax as well because there is nowhere for them to go. Myofascial Release is done without cream or oil. There are different techniques that have been developed to work with fascia. I have studied with John Barnes and follow his approach, moving very slowly and gently.
The Alexander Technique is movement reeducation and you remain fully clothed. The way we use our bodies can sometimes result in strain and discomfort. When we change our thinking and awareness of our bodies, we can often regain comfort and ease. Lessons involve gentle hands-on contact and verbal guidance to help you sense what is going on in any given movement and redirect your thinking to improve your use of yourself. Lessons may involve sitting, lying down, standing, walking, or an activity of your choice such as playing an instrument, brushing your hair, knitting, or using a computer.
