What are the different types of massage offered at Sante?
The highly skilled massage therapists at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness specialize in many types of massage, including Swedish massage, and hot stone massage.
These are just a few examples of the unique forms of massage available at SANTÉ Aesthetics & Wellness:
Customized Pressure Massage
These treatments at Santé are customized to best suit your needs. Massage therapy can ease strained muscles and chronic pain. Slow, focused strokes, strong knuckle and elbow work break down adhesions and improve range of motion. Your therapist will ensure the pressure is comfortable for your conditions.
The Swedish massage is one of the most common types of massages you can get. It is performed with the intent to energize the body and improve overall health. This type of massage involves actions like percussion, kneading, vibration, tapping and rolling. Massage oil or lotion is used to protect the skin from friction.
Deep tissue massage is best for giving attention to certain painful, stiff "trouble spots" in your body. The massage therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage may be therapeutic -- relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain.
Hot Stone Massage
A stone massage uses smooth, flat, and heated rocks to glide over your muscles and release tension throughout the body. They may also be placed at key points on the body to extend relief as your session continues.
Medical & Sports
Medical & sports massage, including for MVAs (motor vehicle accidents) is outcome-based massage, primarily the application of a specific treatment targeted to the specific problem(s) the patient presents with a diagnosis and are administered after a thorough assessment/evaluation by the medical massage therapist with specific outcomes being the basis for treatment. It is also known as clinical massage or treatment massage.
Maternal or Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
