On-site Chair Massage
Massage Therapy Peoria, ILWhat is Chair massage?
1 or 2 licensed massage therapists will bring in a massage chair to your business, depending on the number of employees you have signed up.  Chair massage is done fully dressed, no lotion or oil is used (unless requested). We generally focus on neck, shoulders, and low-back. It lasts anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes.  We can come over lunch breaks, or anytime requested. Anyone who has ever sat behind a desk all day will recognize the symptoms of workplace fatigue:  a stiff neck, achy shoulders, mental fogginess, etc. Instead of zoning out and being stressed out, get a chair massage to relieve aches and pains. Plus, Chair massage is a 'water-cooler' event, it allows employees to interact on a non-work basis and gives you a chance to find out how your employees are doing.

massage therapy peoria, IL*Swedish Massage/Relaxation
is considered the classic massage therapy method and is been the basis for many other types of massage such as deep tissue massage.
Swedish massage therapy relaxes muscles and enhances oxygen flow throughout the body. Using firm or gentle pressure, the practitioner will employ stroking, vibration, friction, kneading, and tapping to create flexibility, relaxation, increased oxygen in the blood, and the easing of aches and pains.
Therapists can apply deeper pressure to help rid toxins in the body, to help recover more quickly from injuries, and to reduce emotional and physical stress.
Regular swedish massage is an important part of maintaining overall good health and vitality.
Research has shown that after receiving swedish massage or other touch therapies, cancer patients feel more relaxed and experience less pain and/or anxiety. It has also been reported that massage can reduce nausea during chemotherapy.
*Deep Tissue Massage Therapy:
deep tissue massage peoria, il 
focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue to relieve chronic muscle tension or injury.
Deep tissue techniques may result in some some discomfort and residual pain for a day or two following the treatment. The massage releases toxins into the body from the massaged tissue. You need to drink plenty of water for a while after the massage to flush your body of these toxins.
Most sessions will start with lighter pressure to warm the muscles and move slowly into the deeper pressure. It must be done this way because, if deep pressure is applied immediately, the muscles will automatically tighten for protection. This could result in more pain and possibly injury, so the massage therapist will instead begin with less pressure and slowly start the deeper techniques.
Most deep tissue massages will use a minimum of oils or lotions, because there isn’t much gliding or stroking of the skin.

massage therapy peoria illinois*Trigger Point Therapy
is a form of massage therapy that focuses on trigger points in the body. These are not the same as the points used in acupressure, but are physical points in the body that cause pain and can be felt by touch. They are very common and are also commonly known as "muscle knots" that are inflammed.
There are two types of trigger points: active and latent. An active trigger point hurts without being touched and if it is pressed on, it will send the pain to another part of the body. Latent trigger points only hurt when they are touched and they will not send the pain elsewhere in the body.
The most obvious and instantaneous benefit of trigger point massage therapy is pain relief, but there are many more benefits that can be achieved over time with trigger point therapy, including the following:
  • Increased range of motion
  • More flexibility
  • Better circulation
  • Reduced stiffness
The above benefits all take time and several treatments. This is because multiple treatments help to teach the muscles how to move without causing as much pain.
