The Brost Clinic offers several massage modalities:
Swedish – most often practiced in the United States: long smooth strokes varying in pressure from light to medium to deep. The massage therapist will use the pressure that is most comfortable to you.
Deep tissue – Swedish massage targeting deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. Deep tissue is best for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. The therapist may incorporate pressure point work (pressing and holding various points on the muscle with thumbs, hands or elbow) and stretching.
Sports (pre- and post-event) – specifically designed for those involved in strenuous physical activity. Pre-event Sports Massage is designed to increase peak performance, prevent injury and improve flexibility. Post-event massage is aimed at treating injury, loosening muscles, and alleviating soreness. Current and former clients of Brost Massage Therapists include professional athletes and professional dancers.
Myofascial Release – The direct myofascial release (or deep tissue work) method works through engaging the myofascial tissue restrictive barrier, the tissue is loaded with a constant force until tissue release occurs. Practitioners use knuckles, elbows, or other tools to slowly stretch the restricted fascia by applying a pressure. Direct myofascial release seeks for changes in the myofascial structures by stretching, elongation of fascia, or mobilising adhesive tissues. The practitioner moves slowly through the layers of the fascia until the deep tissues are reached.
Cranial Sacral – A craniosacral therapy session involves the therapist placing their hands on the patient, which allows them to tune into the craniosacral rhythm.The practitioner gently work with the spine and the skull and its cranial sutures, diaphragms, and fascia. In this way, the restrictions of nerve passages are said to be eased, the movement of cerebrospinal fluid through the spinal cord is said to be optimized, and misaligned bones are said to be restored to their proper position.
Reflexology – pressure to the feet, hands, or ears with specific thumb, finger, and hand techniques without the use of oil or lotion. It is based on what reflexologists claim to be a system of zones and reflex areas that they say reflect an image of the body on the feet and hands, with the premise that such work effects a physical change to the body.
Pregnancy (prenatal) – specialized, gentle massage; expectant mother is properly positioned and supported throughout the massage with exceptionally comfortable cushions, specifically designed to support the changing body.
Chair massage – typically lasts 5 – 20 minutes, and is performed while fully clothed with the client relaxing in a specially designed chair. Seated massage is an excellent introduction for those never having experienced massage before.
