Therapeutic and Deep Tissue Massage
Therapeutic massage helps increase circulation to all parts of the body and shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, toxins and metabolic waste. This is accomplished by rubbing and kneading muscular tissue while applying smooth even pressure. Deep tissue massage focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue and releases chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. Deep tissue massage also helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue.
Prenatal Massage helps to prepare a mother’s body for an easier delivery through relaxation and relief of aches and pains that arise due to the many changes that occur within the body during pregnancy. Centered Spirit incorporates techniques used by traditional Maya midwives during the prenatal massage which helps increase blood supply to the uterus, aid in proper uterine alignment, sciatic pain and round ligament discomfort.
