Swedish and Deep Tissue massage therapy techniques are used in a back, neck and shoulders massage.
Deep Tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Sports Massage therapy is a form of bodywork geared toward participants in athletics. It is used to help prevent injuries, to prepare the body for athletic activity and maintain it in optimal condition, and to help athletes recover from workouts and injuries.
Relaxation massage therapy decreases the amount of stress hormones in the body, leaving clients feeling completely relaxed and rested, even after the session is over. The techniques used during the massage trigger changes in the brain's chemistry, resulting in reduced stress and an improved mood.
Scar massage therapy is an effective way to decrease scar tissue build up and help make scars less noticeable.
Orthopedic Massage therapy is a type of manual therapy that focuses on the treatment and prevention of musculoskeletal dysfunction and pain. In addition to treating specific injuries, OM is used to increase range of motion, decrease and manage pain and restore normal body movement and function. OM is sometimes combined with deep tissue massage.
Prenatal Massage therapy during pregnancy is a wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (or swelling).
Infant massage therapy is a type of complementary and alternative treatment that uses massage therapy for babies. Evidence is insufficient to support its use in either full term or preterm babies to achieve physical growth.

I have worked on a lot of acute injuries and chronic pain... but of everything I do I am most passionate about abdominal scar tissue work.
There is nothing more satisfying and fulfilling as a therapist, than seeing my clients transform in front of my eyes over the course of just a few sessions.
Scar tissue looks similar to spiderwebs inside of your body, it attaches from the surgical site to muscles and organs and can lead to back pain, hip pain, rib pain, painful mensuration, diaphragm issues, constipation, poor posture and abdomen disfigurement....
Thankfully even old scars can be worked on and improved greatly in a very short period of time.
As an Abdominal Scar Tissue Therapist, I have over 10 years of experience and would love to give you a FREE consultation to see what can be done for your abdominal scars.
Kaitlin Simmons is a cervical and thoracic spine specialist.
I have been a Massage Therapist in Gainesville for 7 years. My background has been in a clinical setting, and have focused on working with chronic Headache and migraine patients, neck and upper back pain. I love helping people discover that pain isn't their only option and working to get them into a speedy recovery. As someone who once suffered from frequent Headaches and Migraines, I understand how much massage can help with prevention and treatment of them.
I am passionate about teaching people self-care techniques to help them work toward being both independent and pain-free.
