Ann Arbor Massage Therapy with Amy Prior

Myofascial Therapy

Myofascial massage therapy is a type of deep tissue massage that loosens the bonds between the fascia and the muscles to increase range of motion, decrease tissue adhesions and loosen scar tissues that may have formed. Myofascial therapy also increases the oxygen and nutrient supply to muscular and fascial tissues to improve muscular health.

Neuromuscular Therapy

Neuromuscular therapy is a type of deep tissue massage that employs trigger point therapy. It works with deeper layers of muscle to deactivate points of pain and tight spots which refer pain around or away from the knots. It also seeks to increase range of motion by improving circulation and oxygen and nutrient delivery to the muscle tissue to decrease pain and increase muscular health.

Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage is a method of massage that focuses on improving whole-body circulation while stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system so that the client experiences physical and mental relaxation. This style uses long, gliding strokes (effleurage), kneading of the tissues, frictioning of knotted muscles and rhythmic tapping and vibration. Pressure is generally lighter and less deep than myofascial or neuromuscular therapies.

Sports Massage

Sports massage is a style of massage geared more toward athletes and the stresses and injuries they may experience, given their activities. It uses specific massage techniques and stretches to help athletes enhance their performance. Sports massage helps them better recover from and/or avoid injuries, improves range of motion, increases flexibility, and relieves soreness and cramps due to overuse.
