Massage TreatmentsDeep Tissue Massage 

Massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. Deep tissue is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, lower back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. Movement within deep tissue massage is slow and the pressure is deep and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

Swedish/ Holistic Massage

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes to help you relax. The massage therapist will move at a slower pace and use lighter pressure. There is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or “knots” in the muscle tissue, which can be uncomfortable and cause some people to tense up against the pressure. In a relaxation massage, the therapist won’t push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. You might even fall asleep! It’s a good choice for someone who is getting a massage for the first time, or someone who just wants to bring their stress level down.

Pregnancy Massage 

Massage during pregnancy has been proven to benefit all of your body’s systems including muscular, circulatory, digestive and hormonal. Improved circulation brings more oxygen and nutrients to the cells in your body and also that of your baby – nourishing both of you. Massage can soothe back and shoulder pain, pubic discomfort, sciatica, cramps, sore hips and aching legs. Pregnancy is a time of great change and this, along with fluctuating hormones and broken sleep can sometimes cause stress levels to rise. This is ok as long as the stress is also balanced with time to relax. Regular massage can give you the space to deeply relax and rejuvenate and the time, to enjoy your pregnancy and transition into motherhood. Relaxed mama = happy baby!

At Massage by Danielle you have the option of using the specially adapted pregnancy massage table which allows you to lie face down supporting your abdomen or to lie on your side using bolsters and cushions to support you.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage – Anti Cellulite

Closely connected with the circulatory system, the lymphatic system is an extensive drainage system that returns water and proteins from various tissues back to the bloodstream. By increasing circulation through lymphatic massage, the body is given a chance to detox and clears and rids itself of unwanted toxins and waste. This in turn increases vitality and has significant changes in toning the body.

Lymphatic drainage is an excellent treatment for anyone with any metabolism concerns, from cellulite to weight loss, poor circulation, water retention, pregnancy and achy body, because of it’s fantastic ability to boost immunity.

With this massage you should expect a gentle light pumping action of lymphatic fluid up towards the heart. Certain nodes may be slightly painful due to congestion, however through massage they will become smaller and drain into the next node making their way through major drainage ducts and into blood circulation. You will need to drink plenty of water to aid cleansing and purifying in recovery mode.
