Massage can be used for a variety of health-related purposes, including to relieve pain, rehabilitate sports injuries, reduce stress, increase relaxation, address anxiety and depression, and aid general wellness. Here at Pinewood Laser & Spa we offer Swedish Massages, Sports Massages and Hot Stone Massages.
Our Swedish Massage offers light to medium to deep pressure, where long rhythmic strokes are used throughout to allow the body to enter the parasympathetic state.
Other benefits include:
- Reduce stress/anxiety symptoms
- Promote better sleep
- Lengthen tight muscles
- Loosen adhesions/knots
- Increase circulation
Our Sports Massage is offered for both pre and post sporting events.
A pre-event massage is used to encourage blood flow to participating muscles and stretches but not exhaust, those muscles. This is a fast-paced and upbeat session geared towards preparing you for your event! A 30-minute session is recommended for this type of massage.
A post-event massage includes deep tissue, stretching, and range of motion exercises to help stretch those sore and tight muscles. Use of ice or heat, if needed, helps reduce recovery time for any possible injury. A 30 or 60-minute session may be booked for this type of massage.
A Hot Stone Massage is a technique in which hot basalt stones are strategically placed along specific areas of the body. This helps to:
- Reduce tension
- Unbind scar tissue
- Assist in pain management
