< 1 day ago
Tony Brink 1400 West Walnut Street Suite 117 Rogers, AR 72756 Phone: 479-633-8433 At Essential Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork we understand that no two people are alike. Our goal is to provide a variety of holistic therapies that will complement you and your lifestyle. Each massage is tailored to meet your specific needs. We believe wellness is found when we learn to balance our body, mind & spirit. Through relaxation and pain relief we can help you achieve this balance. Swedish massage is the most common type of massage. If you are new to massage it is a great place to start. During a session your therapist will combine traditional techniques characterized by stroking, kneading, friction, and sometimes percussion. Swedish massage reduces muscular tension, enhances circulation, and leaves you with an overall sense of well-being. Hot Stone massage incorporates the benefits of heat and massage therapy. During a session your therapist will place stones on specific areas of the body and also use hot stones to massage your muscles. Heat generated from the stones improves circulation and aids in relaxation. Hot Stone massage can benefit anyone and can be useful on muscles that are difficult to relax. Neuromuscular Therapy is a specialized form of Deep-tissue massage that addresses underlying muscle groups, fascia, and trigger points. During a session your therapist will use friction and focused pressure to relieve muscular pain and discomfort. Neuromuscular Therapy can relieve a variety of symptoms, and when combined with other therapies it offers a sense of deep relaxation. CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle form of bodywork that addresses the head, spinal column, and sacrum. During a session your therapist will use gentle pressure to release compression in areas that hold stress. Craniosacral Therapy is performed while clothed, so be sure to wear comfortable clothing. You will find this technique deeply relaxing. It is also known to relieve migraines, neck and back pain, and anxiety. Deep-tissue massage sounds like what it is, deep pressure massage. During a session your therapist will use firm pressure that concentrates on underlying muscle groups and fascia in the body to relieve underlying pain patterns and other physical ailments. It is important to communicate your needs to your therapist to achieve a proper level of pressure. Deep-tissue massage can also break up scar tissue and provide stress relief. Reflexology is a Chinese style of bodywork used to relieve tension and promote wellness. During a session your therapist will apply focused pressure to reflex points, primarily on your feet, that effect every part of your body. Reflexology can be relaxing as well as invigorating. It also can provide relief for those suffering from foot pain. Fascial Release is a form of therapy that focuses on relieving tissues that restrict movement and cause imbalance in the body. During a session your therapist will apply gentle sustained pressure to improve movement and circulation in the body. Fascial Release is often combined with other therapies to optimize relaxation and pain relief. Massage cupping, inspired by an ancient technique used in Traditional Chinese Medicine, uses negative pressure on the skin’s service to facilitate healing and relaxation. During a session your therapist will use glass or plastic cups and suction, to loosen underlying fascia and connective tissue. Suction can range from light to heavy and the movements performed by the therapist can be stimulating or sedating.
