WELCOME TO FLOAT WELLNESS MASSAGE THERAPY

Float Wellness Massage Therapists are trained in a variety of massage styles and techniques.

The most popular is Swedish Massage which is excellent for relaxation. Swedish Massage involves long, slow gliding strokes which release muscular tension and relax the nervous system. The therapist will adjust the pressure for your comfort.

Deep Tissue Massage is also popular and focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. Deep Tissue massage releases chronic patterns of muscle tension in the body through slow strokes and deep pressure on affected areas. The deep pressure is applied both across the grain of the muscles as well as with the grain which makes it a very effective therapy. Deep Tissue is also beneficial for breaking up and eliminating scar tissue from injury or strain. Our therapists use Deep Tissue to break down adhesions which can cause inflammation. By using this style of massage the client will experience pain relief and restoration of normal movement. After a Deep Tissue Massage some may feel a bit it soreness in the area worked however this will pass within a day or so and they will feel much better.

Our Massage Therapists are also trained in Sports Massage which many athletes prefer as it gives them increased flexibility and range of motion, reduces the risk of injury and decreases soreness after training and promotes faster recovery time. Whether you are a weekend warrior or a semi-professional athlete competing in triathlons or marathons a regular sports massage will be a great support in helping you achieve your goals.

Other forms of massage our Massage Therapists are trained in are Pregnancy Massage, Myofasial Release, Lymphatic Drainage and Trigger Point Therapy.

‘Compassion is a bridge between the client and the therapist. It can be argued that without compassion, no healing takes place. Not only is compassion a bridge, but it is also the container for the therapeutic relationship.’
