Fitness Source Massage Therapy
The Fitness Source Massage Therapy Program offers members and non-members the opportunity to benefit mentally and physically. Each massage therapist is professionally trained and well practiced in a variety of techniques.
We offer several types of massage therapy, including:
Swedish – One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by timulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. Therapists use a combination of kneading, rolling, vibration, percussive and tapping movements, with the application of oil, to reduce friction on the skin.
Deep tissue – Releases the chronic pattern of tension in he body through slow stroked and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It is called deep tissue, because it focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
Sports massage – Sports massage consists of specific components designed to reduce injuries, alleviate inflammation and provide warm-up, etc. for amateur and professional athletes before, during, after and within their training regimens.
Pre-natal / pregnancy – Performed by a trained prenatal specialist, these techniques can educe pregnancy discomforts and concerns and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus. In the postpartum period, specialized echniques rebalance structure, physiology and emotions of the new mother, and may help her to bond with and care for her infant.
Myofascial – Myofascial release is the hree-dimensional application of sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to eliminate fascial restrictions and facilitate the emergence of motional patterns and belief systems that are no longer relevant or are impeding progress. Upon locating an area of fascial tension, gentle pressure is applied in the irection of the restriction.
