Why is Massage Important?

Massage is especially helpful for those who have bone or muscle injuries, as well as those who are inactive and subject to stress. Massage stimulates the nervous system and increases circulation encouraging the health of our muscles and organs. Massage also increases the flow of lymph, which removes bacteria from the tissues.

 

Massage…

At Vivicare we offer various types of Massage including:

Thai Massage

Thai massage uses ancient stretching and massage techniques to leave you feeling free, relaxed and more flexible. Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches.

Sports Massage

Sports massage uses a variety of massage techniques designed to help your body feel freer and stronger. It is particularly great for those with active lifestyles. Sports massage is actually a form of Swedish massage that is delivered to athletes but those with inactive lifestyles do benefit as well. Most commonly, sports massage focuses on increasing blood and lymphatic fluid flow, reducing and eliminating pain, as well as tender trigger points, and increasing range of motion of the affected area.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) uses a variety of trigger point techniques to treat conditions such as; chronic pain, sciatica, rotator cuff dysfunction, carpal tunnel syndrome, temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) and migraines, as well as traumas, including abuse-related trauma. NMT is the most effective type of massage therapy for lower back pain.

Prenatal Massage

Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of expecting women. Prenatal massage is similar to massage during non-pregnancy in terms of the goals (relaxation, pain relief, increased circulation & mobility, etc.). With increasing weight, a changing center of gravity and the many other changes associated with pregnancy, prenatal massage can help provide relief and a sense of well-being that is much deserved. Not recommended during the 1st trimester.

Deep Tissue Massage

Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue or fascia below the surface. It helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the surface. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles.

Reflexology

Reflexology is a technique that focuses on specific pressure points within your feet and hands to help correct the flow of energy throughout your body. A system of massage used to relieve tension and treat illness, based on the theory that there are reflex points on the feet, hands, and head linked to every part of the body.
