I have loved therapeutic massage since I was about 11. One of my sisters is 8 years older than me and has practiced Massage Therapy for 10 years longer than I have, and she would often give me massages as a present, especially if I needed her to address an issue I was having. She taught me about all of the different ailments massage can ease, the benefits of acupressure for everyday things, and why deep tissue massage reaps more results than a straight Swedish massage.

read more › A Standard Massage is the greatest way to de-stress and relax. Relaxation is key to a happy, healthy lifestyle. A study conducted by a group of scientists at Cedars-Sinai conducted a very interesting study about the effects massage has on a person, including reducing cortisol, your stress hormone, and arginine vasopressin, a hormone that contributes to aggressive behavior, as well as increasing your immune system response. A massage at Under Pressure Therapeutics is tailored to your needs. Depending on the length of time will determine what can effectively be worked.

read more › The body has layers of fibers and tissues, all of which play a role in your movement abilities. Fascia is a connective tissue that acts basically like a onesie; it covers every part of your body. Like a onesie, tension (or pulling) on one part of that connective tissue in turn pulls on everything else, which prevents the tissues underneath to function at 100%. This causes muscle tissues to work harder to do the same thing, which can cause pain, lack of nerve flow, limit range of motion, and more.

read more › The primary goal with a Swedish massage is to relax the body and mind while hydrating the skin and tissues. A combination of movements combine to create a relaxing hands-on experience. Movements are directed toward the heart, which enhances venous blood flow and helps your circulatory system. A Swedish massage can massage the whole body, including the neck, arms, stomach, fronts and backs of legs, glutes, and back. It's a great way to calm tissues and relax. Swedish Massage is the most basic modality of massage.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to receive regular prenatal massage and other self-care practices during those formative months. Prenatal massage has been proven to aid in the life of an expecting mother. Expecting mothers go through so many changes that make it difficult to sleep, keep food down, and much more. When you normally come in for a prenatal massage, you lay on your stomach for us to work your back.

read more › Sports massage focuses on the soft tissue manipulation for athletes. Its goals are to reduce the inflammation and soreness that comes from rigorous exercise and training. When you're training for a specific event or type of game, you run the risk of repetitive motion injuries or dysfunction. For example: if you're a runner, you will have tight calves and quads and hamstrings as well as glutes. The obvious muscles. But you will also likely have tension in your lower back, since that's what you're mainly using for balance and stability.

read more › TMJ Massage is a great noninvasive treatment for TMJ disorders. Clenching, grinding, clicking, popping - these are just some signs of possible TMJ dysfunction. Pain can be caused from previous accidents or injuries, having braces for 3+ years, having an off bite, getting a crown that doesn't fit just perfectly, and a myriad of other possibilities. Rarely, a doctor wants to push for a surgery. Exhausting all other noninvasive treatments prior to surgery is the safest way of dealing with TMJ issues.

read more › Aromatherapy: This ancient practice of healing through essential oils brings a great level of relaxation and healing to your massages. Cryotherapy: Cryotherapy utilizes ice to calm down an area to help reduce pain and scar tissue as well as increase range of motion. This tends to not be a relaxing modality, but can help tremendously for pain management. Focused Hot Stone: Add-on some hot stones for added relaxation or deeper treatment for your session. Choose one or two places (neck and lower back, shoulders and arms, etc.) to help aid in pain relief.
