AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE Part of every Urban Escape massage session, aromatherapy pays special attention to the senses, custom blending essential oils to heal, calm or revitalize. The oils are mixed with an all natural cream base. The cream is then applied , using massage techniques in order to improve circulation, release toxins & optimize physical & mental well being. All products are 100% natural.
CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY is a gentle method of detection & correction that encourages the natural healing mechanisms to dissipate the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system, allowing you to benefit from resistance to disease & better overall health.
Using a light touch, the practitioner first monitors the craniosacral system to detect potential imbalances or restrictions. Then, delicate manual techniques are used to release those problem areas & relieve pressure on the brain & spinal cord.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE A more intense therapeutic massage technique where the therapist works deep into the muscle layers-utilizing trigger point release-to relieve chronic pain.
Deep tissue work is always done at the comfort level of the individual, to replace the chronic unpleasant pain.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE A deep relaxation technique that begins with stretching & unwinding to open up the fibrous membrane surrounding the skeletal muscle known as the fascia.
This reaction is involuntary & calming, allowing you to lose consciousness & seek deep relaxation.
SWEDISH MASSAGE A deeply relaxing, full-body massage using long, smooth strokes to soothe & aches & pains; relieves stress by manipulating the muscles to work out tightness.
For those with specific issues, each muscle group is focused upon in order to provide the greatest benefit & relief of tension.
SPORTS MASSAGE Specifically geared toward athletes or those who are active in sports & exercise , sports massage accelerates the body's natural restorative process. This enables the athlete to participate in rigorous physical training & conditioning more often through a combination of therapies & more intensive stretching of the various muscle groups.
Urban Escape has experience with professional sports organizations such as the Pittsburgh Steelers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins & the Seattle Seahawks.
No two bodies are the same. This is why I customize every session for each client & their individual needs.
Rather than offering a choice of only one massage type, I combine several different massage modalities into one session. Multiple techniques are utilized for each client, always with the goals of inducing deep relaxation, loosening the muscles & increasing flexibility.
This is where the different massage types are utilized in phases as they serve different purposes. These goals are most effectively achieved through a longer session, slowly working into the muscle layers, always warming up & smoothing out any deep work.
Fewer clients are scheduled to provide the highest quality service. More time & attention is to be expected. Clients should leave feeling a noticeable improvement that should continue to last.
This is what I find to be most effective for me & my practice. I welcome your questions & feedback!
