Is the most common and best known type of massage, therapists use this type of massage to stimulate circulation, release tight muscles, restore range of motion and to relieve pain.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Similar to "Swedish Massage", but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on deepest layer of muscle tissue, tendon and fascia.
Is a style of seated massage that is typically short, no more than 20' minutes, focuses in your back, shoulders, neck and arm. This type of massage is performed while the client sits fully clothed.
Is a form of bodywork addressed toward participants in athletics. Is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workout and injuries.
FOOT MASSAGE - Reflexology
Is a simple and effective method to relax your body and mind. It is based on the tarets of foot reflexology and involve applying pressure on key point int he foot to get benefits.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Is a technique that involves the application of pressure to tender muscle tissue in order to relieve pain and dysfunction in other part of the body
Is a Technique that intent restore mobility in the fascia and to soften tissue the has become rigid, this technique also remove restriction in the fascia that cause limited mobility, postural distortion, poor cellular nutrition, pain, and variety of other dysfuntions.
Is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance , and size of skeletal muscles.
Is a Physical Fitness System developed by Joseph Pilates, consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Pilates emphasize proper postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance.
FLEXIBILITY AND MOVILITY
Refers to the range of movement in a joint or series of joints, and length in muscles that cross the joints to induce a bending movement or motion. Flexibility varies between individuals, particularly in terms of differences in muscle length of multi-joint muscles.
is needed to perform everyday activities with relative ease. To get out of bed, lift children, or sweep the floor, we need flexibility. Flexibility tends to deteriorate with age, often due to a sedentary lifestyle. Without adequate flexibility, daily activities become more difficult to perform.
Flexibility refers to the ability of your soft tissue (muscles) to stretch. Mobility, on the other hand, is an umbrella term for the many elements that contribute to movement with full range of motion, including restricted muscle tissue, joints, the joint capsules, motor control, AND your soft tissue
Mobility is the ability to move freely. If your basketball injury causes you to lose mobility in your knee, that means you can't move it very well. Mobility often refers to whether you can move an injured body part, like a joint or a limb, but it can also describe movement in general.
Enhancement of heart and circulatory function produced by regular vigorous aerobic exercise, as jogging, swimming, or cycling.
A consistent aerobic fitness plan can improve and maintain cardiovascular conditioning, which increases lung capacity and improves the efficiency with which your heart pumps blood throughout your body.
The way in which the body is positioned when sitting or standing: the general way of holding the body is an upright posture.
Sitting and standing with proper postural alignment will allow one to work more efficiently with less fatigue and strain on your body's ligaments and muscles. Being aware of good posture is the first step to breaking old poor postural habits and reducing stress and strain on your spine.
The best way to improve your posture is to focus on exercises that strengthen your core -- the abdominal and low back muscles that connect to your spine and pelvis. Some of these muscles move your torso by flexing, extending, or rotating your spine. Others stabilize your pelvis and spine in a natural, neutral position.
FUNCTIONAL STRETCHING THERAPY
As it relates to physical health and fitness, is the process of placing particular part of the body into a position that will lengthen, or elongate, the muscles and associated soft tissues.
Other tissues that begin to adapt to the stretching process include the fascia, tendon, ligaments, skin and scar tissue.
Is an advanced form of flexibility that involve both the stretching and contraction of the muscle group being targeted. Is based of four theoretical mechanism: autogenic inhibition, reciprocal inhibition, stress relaxation and the gate control theory.
ASSISTED STRETCHING MANIPULATION
Similar to Functional Stretching Therapy, but the client has an active participation in the process of stretching
ACTIVE ISOLATED STRETCHING
Is a type of athletic stretching technique that provides effective, dynamic, facilitate stretching of mayor muscle groups, but more importantly, AIS provide functional and physiological restauration of superficial and deep fascial planes.
