Welcome to Healthy Foundations Massage
My name is Keith Wilson and I’m a Certified, Licensed Massage
Therapist. I enjoy helping people in their desire to a live a healthier
lifestyle, a journey to optimum wellness!
Once thought of as only a luxury item, massage is now being used by
people on a regular basis as part of their personal health care plan.
Whether you need some stress relief, have chronic pain or tight,
overused muscles, massage therapy can help. Do you have neck
and/or back pain? Over 80% of the popoulation suffers from back
pain at some point. I have experience working with these issues.
Schedule an appoinment today and I'd be happy to address your
problems. At Healthy Foundations Massage, you will receive the care
and attention you deserve, in a relaxed and safe office space. The table
has a heating pad for your comfort and hot packs are available ( they
are a great way to loosen tight muscles at the beginning of your
masage!) I can tailor a massage to address your needs and work
within your comfort level. I offer reasonable rates, too! If you would
prefer your massage to take place in your home, I can come to your
house. I offer the following types of massage therapy:
The most common type of massage. The therapist uses oil or lotion to reduce friction. Swedish massage utilizes smooth gliding strokes and gentle kneading of muscles to facilitate a feeling of relaxation.
A variation of Swedish massage, Deep Tissue massage works deeper into the muscles and tissue. Chronically tight or injured muscles may develop "knots" or adhesions in the muscle fibers, causing pain and limiting mobility. Deep tissue work seeks to break up these adhesions thereby relieving pain and restoring movement.
BASIC SPORTS MASSAGE
While Sports massage is a broadly used term, it refers to the application of different massage strokes combined with movement and stretching, for physically active people. I prefer to use the term Basic Sports Massage which involves deeper work combined with some stretching and movement. Even if you are not an active person, you can enjoy the benefits of this therapeutic massage when integrated into a full body massage session.
Also referred to as Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Therapy, and Medical massage, Neuromuscular Massage Therapy (NMT) uses a type of deep tissue, direct digital pressure to release areas of tension in muscles. The work is very slow and specific with the intention being to release these tense or strained areas in soft tissue that cause muscle spasms and pain.
Ideal for social gatherings or corporate events, chair massage focuses on shoulders, neck, back and arms and can provide temporary relief from sore muscles as well as promote relaxation. Chair massages are typically 10-20 minutes long. It can be provided anywhere, with the individual fully clothed sitting in a specialized chair that can be adjusted to that person’s height. Studies have shown that office workers who receive regular chair massage are more relaxed and productive at work.
