Different types of body work offered at Mumpower Massage

Swedish Massage – Five basic, flowing strokes; effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking) are used to massage the body. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and it has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation.

Sports/Deep Tissue Massage – Similar to Swedish massage, it designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience chronic pain, are involved in heavy physical activity, such as athletes or patients who have sustained physical injury.

Trigger point/ Neuromuscular Therapy – Neuromuscular Therapy is the utilization of direct pressure on specific myofascial points (also known as trigger points) to relieve pain. Trigger points may cause local pain or they may refer pain or sensations to other parts of the body.  Manual pressure, vibration, or other treatment is applied to these points to release the trigger points and relieve myofascial pain.

Reiki [ray-key] A form of therapy that uses simple hands-on, no-touch, and visualization techniques, with the goal of improving the flow of life energy in a person. Reiki practitioners are trained to alleviate problems of energy flow in the body on the physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Reiki is used to relieve stress and pain, and to improve the symptoms of various health conditions.
