Looking for more relaxation and less pain? What if you could also alleviate headaches, ease anxiety, and reduce your blood pressure all at the same time? Well, look no further! Massage therapy just may be the key to return your body to the well-oiled machine it once was intended to be. And we have brought it back to Heath Pointe Jacksonville!
Types of massage therapies offered:
Swedish Massage This is the most common massage type where therapists use long, smooth strokes combined with kneading and circular movements on the superficial layers of muscle using lotion or oil. If you’ve never had a massage before, this is the one to try!
Deep Tissue Massage Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist will use slower strokes and friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. This form is typically used for chronic pain patterns, repetitive strain, postural problems and recovery from an injury. Common modalities included in this massage are Neuromuscular Therapy (trigger point) and Myofascial Release.
Pregnancy (or Prenatal) Massage: The therapists that provide this therapy in our clinic have special certifications in prenatal massage to best provide the safest and highest quality of care. Not only do they know the specific points and areas to avoid, but are also well versed on which areas are the most commonly affected and cause the most discomforts. They are also trained to provide proper positioning to ensure highest level of comfort and support. Pregnancy massage is used to reduce stress, decrease swelling, relieve aches and pains, and reduce anxiety and depression. This massage is customized for each individual patient.
Sports Massage: This massage technique is designed specifically for those that involved in physical activity, although you don’t necessarily have to be a professional athlete to benefit. The focus here isn’t on relaxation, but on preventing and treating injuries while enhancing physical performance.
Thai Yoga: Uses a combination of compression, gentle pressure and yoga-like stretches on the body to relax the body on a whole deeper level reducing stress and improving overall circulation. You can read more on this unique relaxation technique here.
Thai Foot Massage: This form of therapy is a specific technique to the feet and legs primarily. Thai foot massage is deeply relaxing and involves “hands on” massage with stretching and acupressure to stimulate specific reflex points. It has elements of Shiatsu, Reflexology and Chinese massage incorporated into each treatment. Our therapist also uses an individualized essential oil blend per client leaving you feeling fully relaxed wondering just where has this been all your life.
Reflexology: Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears in order to “activate” or treat the corresponding body part. This is a deeply relaxing treatment with benefits that can be felt throughout the body. Experience our relaxing and therapeutic treatment which concentrates on pressure points with various massage techniques to the feet. Reflexology helps to balance and detoxify, which can help alleviate tension in the body, relieve headaches, sinus congestion and most stress related conditions. Specifically designed to enhance total body wellness and general health. *Not recommended for pregnant women.
Reiki: Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is a “hands off”or laying of hands approach that addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. Many people find Reiki treatments to be deeply soothing and relaxing. This can be added to other massage therapies, or as it’s own therapy in 30 or 60minute sessions.
Head and Face Massage: Think less cleansing and more therapy here. Do you suffer from chronic headaches, sinus pressure, or TMJ pain? This is the treatment for you! This one hour treatment is great at relieving all headaches, neck pain, TMJ jaw pain, clears sinusitis, and reduces eye puffiness. This hour of bliss is combined with Kansa Wand techniques which helps to reduce stress and provide gentle face lifting therapy combined with organic essential oils. You’ll leave feeling fresh, rejuvenated and pain-free!
