General Information About Massage

If you know what style of massage you prefer, please let us know when you book your session and we’ll match a therapist to your specific needs. Otherwise, merely tell us how you feel when you come in, and our therapists will create a custom session for you. Not all therapists use every technique. To make the most of your massage and get the most benefits, try the following tips from the American Massage Therapy Association:

  • Arrive on time.
  • Don’t eat just prior to arrival.
  • Remove only as much clothing as is comfortable for you.
  • Communicate openly with your massage therapist about any concerns, allergies, or areas of discomfort.
  • Relax your muscles and your mind.
  • Schedule regular massage therapy sessions. Massage offers the greatest benefits over time.

Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils for curative and rejuvenating effects. Dating back centuries, this simple therapy has been used to reduce stress and tension, refresh and invigorate the body, soothe emotions, and clear the mind. The essential oil is absorbed through the skin and into the body to affect physiological change. When inhaled the aroma directly affects the limbic area of the brain that is related to emotions and memories. We use these aromatherapy choices: Almond St. John’s Wort, Birch Arnica, Moor Lavender, Rosemary, and Rose. “In our sense of smell resides the mystic who transports us to another time and place or can draw forth a future’s marvelous dream.”

Assisted Stretching

Assisted stretching is a method of stretching that is commonly used by athletes and personal trainers. We work to promote flexibility and range of motion because we believe that a flexible body is more efficient; is more easily trained to strength and endurance; is less prone to injury; recovers from workouts more quickly; and, as a result, just plain feels better! The treatment you receive is optimized to your unique requirements. Our sessions are not only designed to help you, but to also help you learn to help yourself.

Cancer Massage

Many hospitals, such as Sloan-Kettering, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center and Stanford University Hospital, provide touch therapies for cancer patients. Research confirming the benefits of these therapies is appearing in numerous reputable journals such as Journal of Pain and Symptom Management; Annals of Internal Medicine and Cancer Nursing. Studies have found that cancer patients variously experienced less pain, anxiety, nausea or fatigue, increased their immune response, and felt more relaxed after receiving massage or other touch therapies.

Touch therapies can support recovery in a number of ways. Massage can increase circulation and speed healing tissues affected by surgery or radiation. Certain advanced techniques, applied with caution, can reduce swelling and restore pliability to scarred areas. In addition, due to its ability to decrease muscle tightness and increase range of motion, massage can help you feel more like stretching, exercising and enjoying recreational activities as you recover. Finally, as massage reduces pain and stress, your body is better able to rally its healing capabilities on all levels.

No matter what stage of treatment, skilled and caring touch can affirm that life still holds warm, positive experiences. A one-on-one massage session can nurture you while you are undergoing treatment or adjusting to physical changes, such as mastectomy or hair loss. If you have encountered changes in your activity levels or social network, or are coping with fear, anxiety or depression, massage can provide a time for self care and acceptance of tender emotions. In cases where cancer is no longer treatable, attentive touch may provide the most consoling kind of support a person can receive.

Therapeutic Massage

Therapeutic Massage is a light to moderately deep massage designed to relieve muscle tension, release mental and physical strain, stimulate circulation, and provide a safe, nurturing environment for deep relaxation. Cranbury Massage therapists use a combination of methods tailored to your specific needs.

Deep Tissue

Using similar techniques found in the Therapeutic Massage, the massage movements here are slower, the pressure is deeper and more concentrated, and the focus is on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. This massage will leave you feeling relaxed and invigorated.

Geriatric

Gentle relief for fragile conditions. As the senior population grows and people live longer, the search is on for ways to cope with the multitude of issues associated with aging. Massage may be one of the answers. The elderly suffer disproportionately from arthritis, muscular stiffness, tendonitis, and bursitis. Massage therapy addresses these issues by decreasing muscular stiffness and joint inflammation and helping to increase natural joint lubrication and range of motion. Massage also causes the release of endorphins, which can act as a natural painkiller. A number of recent studies have suggested that massage therapy can also help to improve communication and reduce anxiety in Alzheimer’s patients. Please call for information about on-site treatment at home or at residential care facilities in our area.

Pre- and Post-Natal Massage

Pregnancy places strong demands on a woman’s body and is a time for the body to be nurtured and pampered. This massage not only relieves the tensions and aches caused by the extra weight and shift in the center of gravity to the body, but it reduces swelling, soothes the nervous system, acts as a tonic, reduces fatigue, and enhances energy.

Medical Massage / Site Specific

A site specific massage is focused on a specific joint or muscle problem, for example, a shoulder, an area of the back, a TMJ or an ankle. Because the massage is focused on a particular area, a site specific massage can yield dramatic results in just a few sessions.

Myofascial Therapy

Myofascial Release is a bodywork modality that seeks to rebalance the body by releasing tension in the fascia, the layer of connective tissue that holds muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, and organs together. Myofascial tension is typically caused by continuous sustained use of particular muscle groups, for example, the forearm musculature exercised during use of a computer keyboard and mouse. At Cranbury Therapeutic Massage, myofascial pain is treated via long stretching strokes designed to lengthen, relax and reset the tone of the affected muscles. After a series of treatments, the targeted muscles and fascia become softer and more pliable. Relief derives from the improved tonal matching of muscle length to points of attachment, as well as from reduced muscle irritability and increased muscle latency. Your Therapist can also help you understand the types of ergonomic bad habits that may have contributed to your myofascial tension and that, consequently, should be avoided in the future.

Neuromuscular Therapy / Trigger Point

A region-specific massage, excellent for areas under duress or recovering from injury. Reverse the pain-tension-stress cycle, reducing nervous activity in deep tissue. Forces toxic irritants out of nerve receptor sites & restores health to muscles.

Reflexology

The underlying principle of the science of reflexology is that reflex areas in the feet and hands correspond to glands, organs and other parts of your body. In this treatment, moderate to firm pressure is applied to these areas, releasing stagnant energies, inducing deep relaxation, and improving the overall performance of your body’s systems.

Sports Massage

This special form of massage is typically used before, during, and after athletic events to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries. Depending on the needs of the athlete, a variety of techniques are used.
