Deep Tissue Massage
With a therapeutic or deep tissue massage there is a shift from general relaxation to more focused treatment on areas that are causing discomfort and/or dysfunction. Using a variety of strokes and techniques including Trigger Point Therapy, deeper layers of muscle are addressed as well the fascia surrounding the muscles. Using a deeper pressure than the relaxation massage, the therapist works at releasing chronic muscle tension or adhesions (knots) in the muscle. Communication is key in a Therapeutic massage so be prepared for some dialogue with your therapist.

TMJ massage is used to treat temporomandibular joint dysfunction that can present itself as pain in the jaw, clicking or popping when opening or closing the mouth, headaches, earaches or toothaches, and locked jaw, among other things. TMJD can often be caused from stress, postural dysfunction, direct impact to the jaw, dental work and clenching of the jaw. To treat TMJD the therapist will focus on the upper back, shoulders and pectoral muscles to address any postural imbalances. Then muscle tension and trigger points will be addressed in the neck as well as the mucles of the jaw directly. If necessary, intra-oral massage will be performed with permission from the client using gloved hands.
