Nordic Cryo Spa not only offers cryotherapy, but we also offer massage therapy services! Our massage therapy services include the Swedish massage, pregnancy massage, hot stone massage, deep tissue, and neck, shoulder, and back massages.
Swedish massage therapy is the most common type of massage, involving soft, long, kneading strokes as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes. It relieves muscle tension to relax and energize, and may even help after an injury. The four common strokes of the Swedish massage include:
- Effleurage: a smooth, gliding stroke that relaxes soft tissue
- Petrissage: squeeze, rolling, or kneading
- Friction: deep, circular movements that increase blood flow and break down scar tissue by causing layers of tissue to rub against each other
- Tapotement: a short, alternating tap demonstrated by cupped hands, fingers, or the edge of the hand
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massages can help those troublesome spots in your body that cause pain and stiffness. By using slow, deliberate strokes, pressure is focused on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep underneath your skin. A deep tissue massage can relieve chronic patterns of tension and help with muscle injuries.
Hot Stone Massage
During a hot stone massage, your therapist will place warmed stones on certain areas of your body, such as acupressure points. The stones can be used as massage tools or left in place temporarily. Hot stones soothe by transmitting heat deep into your body as other massage techniques are used to relax you.
Pregnancy massages can help you through the bodily changes you may be experiencing by reducing stress, decreasing arm and leg swelling, and relieving muscle and joint pain. Pregnancy massage therapists typically use specially designed massage pillows to assist in getting you into a comfortable position for this massage.
