Relax to the rhythm of this unique blend of Eastern and Western massage techniques, including Swedish, Tui Na, Shiatsu, Medical, and Athletic massage techniques. Specifically designed for each individual, our aim is to balance the client's body while addressing their unique health complaints.
Swedish massage is among the most commonly known massages, energizing the body by stimulating circulation. The therapist manipulates the soft tissues of the body with a combination of kneading, rolling, rocking, percussive, and tapping movements. An organic body lotion is used during the massage to assist in leaving the skin soft and hydrated. In addition to inducing relaxation and improving circulation, other health benefits of Swedish massage include dissolution of scar tissue adhesions and increased healing time and reduction of swelling from injury.
Did you tweak a muscle or strain a tendon? Do you want to improve blood and oxygen flow? Whether you’re a weekend warrior or in training for a marathon, Affinity Acupuncture’s Athletic/Sports Massage is designed for the individual "on the go" looking to improve muscle function, flexibility and recovery time prior to or immediately after workouts, events, or injury. This massage is designed to direct blood to the muscles for a nice warm-up and expedite the flushing of toxins and waste products from the body.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
This massage is designed for the individual with persistent muscle tension. Combining both soft and vigorous pressure techniques, this massage targets the deep muscular layers and connective tissue of the body to promote blood circulation and the release of toxin build up in the muscles in order to restore muscle health.
Prenatal Massage nurtures a mother’s body as she nurtures the growing, developing fetus. Designed to reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle aches and joint pains, and improve labor outcomes and newborn health, Prenatal massage is a beneficial part of any pregnancy. The body changes quickly during pregnancy, and massage can help women maintain awareness of their bodies and health.
After delivery, the body works hard to return to its pre-pregnancy state. This time brings a wide range of emotional, physical, and hormonal changes. Massage helps new mothers relax and heal after delivery. It also relieves the various muscular aches and pains that come with the activity of caring for a newborn, such as nursing, bending, lifting, and household chores. Postnatal Massage also breaks down adhesions that may form after a C-Section, and removes metabolic wastes and medications still in the system after delivery.
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE
Following the Chikly Method, Lymphatic Drainage Technique (LDT) is a massage technique that allows a massage therapist to detect and palpate the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of lymphatic flow anywhere in the body. Various symptoms are affected when there is an imbalance in the body. LDT is a gentle technique that works through the body's interstitial and lymphatic systems to activate liquid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems.
