Receiving a massage is one of the best ways to reduce tension and alleviate stress. With the amount of health benefits that accompany massage therapy, it’s no wonder the treatment has steadily increased in popularity over the years.

At the Miracle Spa, our trained and licensed massage therapists perform several massage procedures, depending on your particular pinpoints and the pressure you prefer. Multiple massages are available that vary in intensity, all to provide you with the most relaxing experience.

    • Swedish Massage

The Swedish massage is one of the most popular massages in the country. The treatment takes a gentler approach to your relaxation by using longer strokes and kneading to relieve muscle tension and revitalize your energy levels.

    • Deep Tissue Massage

A deep tissue massage will focus on the muscles deep within your body. Using slow strokes with intensified pressure, the deep tissue massage will reduce any pain created due to tense muscles.

    • Hot Stone Massage

The hot stone massage is designed to improve flexibility within your muscles. Heated and smooth, the stones are placed on precise regions of your body. In moments, you will feel a significant relief of tension and noticeable muscle relaxation.

    • Warm Bamboo Fusion Massage

A bamboo massage uses one of the most holistic yet durable plants to rejuvenate the body and mind. Enjoy a relaxing, Swedish or deep tissue massage uses a heated bamboo roll to apply pressure and provide relaxation. The heat from the bamboo roll warms and softens tissue quickly, applies deep pressure to various trigger points, increases blood flow to effected areas, and helps reduce restrictions in fascia and scar tissue.

    • Ashiatsu Massage

Also known as a barefoot massage, the Ashiatsu massage uses gravity to create a relaxing experience. The treatment often uses the same techniques as a Swedish massage but with variations in pressure due to its alternative method of delivery.

    • Sports Massage

A sports massage is designed specifically for athletes and the tension they experience due to the pressure on their muscles and joints. Related to a Swedish massage, a sports massage will involve kneading and deep circular motions to alleviate tightness in the muscles and prevent injury in the future.

    • Shiatsu Massage

The Shiatsu massage uses manual pressure on particular points of the body to release tension and pain. Your massage therapist will use everything from their thumbs, elbows, knees and feet to relieve pain throughout your body. The Shiatsu massage may also include rotating or stretching of the limbs.

    • Trigger Point Massage

A trigger point is defined as an area of your body that produces pain. Not only is the region itself painful, but also the sensation resonates to other parts of the body. To relieve trigger points, your massage therapist will perform a special massage that eliminates the source of the pain. Through rotations of isolated pressure and release movements as well as deep breathing exercises, you will experience a reduction in pain over time.

With the number of massages available at the Miracle Spa, you may find yourself wondering which method is right for you. When you meet with your massage therapist, you can discuss the particular discomforts you are feeling and learn more about the massages available. As you continue to undergo massage therapy, you should feel re-energized, relaxed and totally pampered.
