Massage is well known to help with muscle pain, soreness, injury and increase relaxation. But massage supports far more than just physical healing.
At Inhale Exhale Massage Therapy, not only do we use massage for muscular healing benefits, but we also use various massage therapy techniques to aid in improving circulation, energy and alertness, lowering heart rate and blood pressure, improving immune function and reducing stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue and many other physical, emotional and spiritual ailments.
We know that massage improves individual emotional and spiritual health as well as physical wellbeing, and we ensure each person is given a treatment plan that is tailored to their individual needs.
Therapeutic Deep Tissue
Deep tissue massage is a form of massage therapy that targets deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue of the body. It is primarily used to ease chronic aches and pains as well as repetitive strain injuries or sports injuries.
An individualized treatment plan will be created to get your body functioning and feeling its best. Specific techniques to target muscles effectively are used in combination with different stretching techniques.
We all experience stress, and sometimes our bodies take the toll. Tight shoulders, aching backs, stiff neck. Relaxation massage is your ticket to soothing these aches. This form of therapy is not usually aimed at healing injuries or chronic issues but simply to getting to that ‘ahhh’ spot when you need a little lift.
The healing power of touch can be as gentle as a summer shower, a little rejuvenation to set things right when you need to unwind.
Trauma-informed massage therapy (TIMT) focuses on the physical, mental, and emotional effects of trauma.
The initial interview process will be longer building understanding and boundaries between client and therapist. A space is created to ensure a sense of safety and understanding as the body is allowed to release held trauma and tension.
