Massage Therapy Modalities & Techniques
Massage Therapists at Brawnergy are experienced, trained, and certified so that you can trust their expertise and breadth of knowledge ensures you get the type of Massage Therapy that will best suit you and your goals. While many different modalities may be employed, several common massage movements that span them include:
Effleurage - Long fluid strokes mostly called upon to initially connect with the body or transition from one area to another.
Petrissage - Shorter, deeper strokes applied by fingers or heels of the hands. Kneading, picking up, wringing and rolling are all forms of petrissage.
Tapotement - Used for stimulating and bring attention an area. Forms of this technique include cupping and hacking, among others.
Compressions - A more static technique, compressions relieve areas of tension and knotting. Application varies from elbows to fingers, as does the pressure used from lighter to heavier.
Frictions - Applied on the surface tissue, these are rubbing movements on the skin including stripping & cross-fibering.
Vibrations - Powerful oscillation techniques like finger springing that send vibrations through the tissue to the bone. Generally used to relieve fatigue and pain as it creates a natural sedative.
Combinations and variations of these movements make up many of the common Massage Modalities.
One of the most popular techniques for physical relaxation and stress relief, our massage therapists soothe aching muscles with a therapeutic touch that offers deep relaxation and loosens the top layers of muscle tissue.
Deep Tissue Massage
A technique that provides relief for chronic aches and muscle tension. Deep tissue massage releases chronic muscle tension using deep pressure and slow strokes that go into the fascial layers of muscle tissue at the source of an injury.
Hot Stone Massage
With this relaxing technique, specialized polished stones are placed at key points on the body. The heat allows your Therapist to get deep into the tissue to remove knots and eliminate tension.
Relieve muscle soreness from overuse due to athletic training or competition while increasing range of motion and flexibility. No matter your sport, recover faster and perform better.
Pre-natal massage promotes relaxation and can help to relieve strained neck and back muscles particularly during the second and third trimester when the extra strain on your back is most pronounced. Brawnergy pre-natal massages are given by specially trained therapists who ensure your comfort and safety.
Moderate pressure releases tension and improves mobility due to adhesions and njury in the muscles and surrounding tissue. Kneading style strokes stretch and loosen the fibrous bands within the nerves and joints that extends to provide relief to muscles and connective tissues.
