Every session at OmPowered Wellness is tailored to your needs. Some days, you may need the peace and rejuvenation of a therapeutic massage. Some days, you may need the profound experience of a total body reset through CranioSacral Therapy or energy work. Other days, you may need the combined relief that integrative bodywork can bring. We will check in before every session and, with your guidance, assess and meet the needs of your whole Self.
Therapeutic massage, or Swedish massage, is the most common type of massage therapy. It involves long, flowing strokes, as well as light, rhythmic ones, on the topmost layer of your muscles. Therapeutic massage both relaxes and energizes, because it relieves general muscle tension while promoting a deep sense of well-being.
Integrative massage provides a little more attention to those painful, achy sore spots in your body. Using slower, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on the deeper layers of muscles and tissues in your body, your hot spots are located and, with your help, the tension can be released. Though less rhythmic than other massage modalities, deep tissue techniques can be very therapeutic, because they relieve those painful knots, and illuminate patterns of chronic tension accumulation. Deep tissue work does not necessarily have to mean deep pressure, nor does a profound tissue release need to leave you feeling bruised the next day.
Prenatal massage has been indicated to reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle and joint pain commonly associated with pregnancy, and also improve labor outcomes and newborn health. Prenatal massage can also help reduce the swelling many pregnant women experience, and can help with sciatic nerve pain, another common pregnancy complaint. In addition, prenatal massage just feels good...pregnant women definitely deserve a little extra pampering!
