MASSAGE SERVICES OFFERED IN OUR CHESAPEAKE LOCATION


Massage Services by Certified Athletic Trainer

Massage - Swedish


A Swedish Massage is a relaxing full body massage. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing.


Massage - Deep Tissue

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

Massage - Sports

Sports massage is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.


Massage - Trigger Point

Trigger point therapy is a bodywork technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other parts of the body. It may also be called myofascial (myo meaning muscle, fascial meaning connective tissue) trigger point therapy.


Massage - Chair

A chair massage focuses on the areas of your back, shoulders, neck, arms, and hands. When getting a chair massage, you sit in a special chair that has a downward angled cradle for your face to rest on, and supports for resting your arms.


Massage - Foot

Foot massage improves circulation, stimulates muscles, reduces tension, and often eases pain.
