Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage does not mean pressure so hard that it hurts. Firm pressure and slow strokes are used to reach deeper layers of muscle. This breaks up scar tissue and muscle "knots" or adhesions of rigid tissue, allowing for better circulation and range of motion.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial tissue is continuous in the body as it interweaves and wraps muscles, and every division of tissue within the muscle. Where there is chronic or acute pain, limited or difficult range of motion, ongoing stress and tension, there is almost always myofascial tissue which needs to be released and relaxed.

Swedish

Swedish massage is the most common technique. (In case you were wondering, Swedish massage is called “classic massage” in Sweden.) It focuses on overall relaxation, circulation, and physical and mental wellness. A Swedish massage is one of the best ways raise "feel good" hormones like serotonin, a calming hormone, as well as oxytocin.

Pregnancy

Safe in any trimester and a healthy way to encourages blood and lymph circulation, reduce stress and promote overall wellness. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, and headaches.

Trigger Point Therapy

A trigger point is a tight area within muscle tissue that may refer pain to other parts of the body. A trigger point in the back, for example, may produce referral pain in the neck. The pain may be sharp and intense or a dull ache. Using isolated pressure and release on the spot, while you actively participate through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort, we can release the trigger.

She seemed to have a great sense of going deep but not so deep as to make the muscle spasm.

This was a great and relaxing 1st. time experience for me!. There were no awkward moments for me in the overall massage. The techniques that were used by Julia were very good. I anticipate returning for additional massages in the near future. :) Thanks Julia!

An excellent massage and experience. Julia is a very skilled massage therapist. The room was relaxing, and you just can't beat the price either! I have had a deep tissue massage and a thai massage from Julia- both amazing! Plus, as an added bonus there is also a sauna and hot tub option for after your massage in the atheltic club.
