Is the massage I get at a spa, my chiropractor or a private massage practice the same? The truth is the massage you get at a spa, chiropractor or private massage practice can greatly vary in technique and outcome.
A massage at a spa is usually a “feel-good massage” promoting relaxation and stress-release, while a massage at your chiropractor may involve more specific and deeper work to help you to help you realign and relieve pain.
A smaller, private practice, like Eden Therapy and Massage, allows for more freedom when incorporating various techniques, like trigger points, sports massage, stretches, NMT and relaxation, during one session. We offer a variety of massages, including structural integrated work, to help you realign and fix issues due to bad posture, all in a relaxing setting.
At Eden Therapy and Massage, we like to educate our clients and help determine the type of massage they need. For example, our massage therapists might be able to help determine that your headache is coming from the way you sleep. incorrect support on the neck can stress the SCM and cause you headaches. During treatment your therapist can incorporate techniques into the massage to help alleviate the issue for you altogether.
Here you can enjoy a relaxing Swedish Massage (designed to help you relax, de-stress and disconnect) or delight in a Deep Tissue Massage (geared towards clients who are more active). If you’re looking for an extra feel-good massage, we recommend a hot stone or hot bamboo that uses a heat element to get deeper in those muscles, without any discomfort from pressure.
