Integrated Massage Styles
The following are typical descriptions of different types of massage
Swedish san diego massage uses pressure to increase circulation with long fluid strokes, kneading motions
or friction. Using oil to make movement of the massage therapists hands more fluid and smoother, it
is generally the most gentle and promotes relaxation and release of tension in the surface
Shiatsu and Acupressure
Shiatsu and acupressure (eastern forms of san diego massage) focuses more on pressure and traditionally centers around balancing the bodies
meridians. According to the eastern methods of massage the body is mapped with meridians that
correspond to internal organs such as the lungs, heart, gallbladder and stomach. Just as the organs
serve different functions within the body so they also represent different aspects of our lifes and how we function.
Compressions of different levels of pressure are used to balance the meridians to produce a feeling of
well-being and homeostasis. This style can also be done with a persons clothes on and on a mat vs. a table. Variations
are used by practitioners to integrate it into non-traditional styles of san diego massage.
Similiar to a swedish san diego massage, deep tissue san diego massage is done with various strokes, kneading and friction.
The noticeable difference is in the level of pressure which is usually more intense. The san diego massage
is intended to address the deeper muscle layers and provide relief where there may be more stress or muscle pain.
Deep Tissue san diego massage is also effective for helping to restore injuries to soft tissues. The massage can sometimes
be a bit painful (the breakup of scar tissue) but is not always discomforting. The pain should be
a "feel good" Pain.
Trigger points are sensitive areas in the muscle tissues that cause pain either in the localized area
or referred pain to other areas of the body. Trigger point work uses pressure to to deactivate
or reduce the pain and help alleviate the pain caused by it. Done correctly, the massage therapist will
incorporate a style of breathing that elicits the release of the myofascial tissue surrounding the muscle.
Using particular strokes such as stripping and kneading, the san diego massage is focused on cleaning the body of
lactic acid by increasing circulation and moving it towards the heart. Rythmic fluid motions provide an invigorating
san diego massage that helps to prevent injury and improve your bodies recovery rate.
Aimed at reeducating the neuromuscular patterns stored in the tissues as a result of injury or trauma to soft tissues, this
form of san diego massage helps to release the holding patterns held in the body. The work also increases ones own awareness of our
bodies patterns and allows us to "let go" and restore healthy patterns in the body to improve range of motion and function.
This san diego massage focuses on pinpointing areas on the feet and hands that correspond to bodily organs and functions
of the internal organs and tissues. Based on thousands of years of study reflexology promotes bodily
and muscular functions without san diego massage the areas directly. Blood and nutrient flow, along with
being an effective technique for reducing headaches as well as other pain, are some of the benefits of this
form of san diego massage.
