Every session at OmPowered Wellness is tailored to your needs. Some days, your physical self will need the peace and rejuvenation of a Therapeutic massage, or energy work. Other days, you may need the relief that deep tissue work or hot stones 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. This can also be done in combination with gentle movement of the joints. Swedish massage therapy both relaxes and energizes, because it relieves general muscle tension while promoting a deep sense of well-being. It may even help after an injury, as it increases blood flow to the area while decreasing the likelihood of scar tissue formation.
Deep tissue work provides a little more attention to those painful, achy sore spots in your body. Using slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, and other tissues deep in your body, your hot spots are located and, with your help, the tension may be released. Though less rhythmic than other massage modalities, deep tissue techniques can be very therapeutic, because they relieve painful knots, and illuminate chronic patterns of tension accumulation. Deep tissue is a key modality when assisting with injuries, such as back sprain or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Prenatal Massage has been indicated to reduce anxiety, decrease symptoms of depression, relieve muscle and joint pain commonly associated with pregnancy, and also to 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...and pregnant women definitely deserve a little extra pampering!
Hot stone massage adds smooth, heated stones to Therapeutic Massage as an extension of their own hands or by placing the heated stones on the body while massaging other areas. The heat is deeply relaxing, warming up and loosening tight muscles quickly and deeply, allowing facilitation of the quick release of muscular tension patterns. The experience of hot stone massage is unlike any other in terms of deep, profound relaxation.
