Products And Services

  • Couples Massage

    Relax and Reconnect at Elements of Rockville Centre While couples massages are becoming more and more popular, many people still are unsure of what to expect and what exactly a couples massage entails. To put it simply: it involves two people experiencing massage treatments at the same time in the same room. Elements Massage of Rockville Centre has a room set up specifically for this purpose, with two massage tables next to each other so wives and husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends, or you & whoever that special someone is, can enjoy this relaxing time together. We find that best friends and mothers/daughters also enjoy this special time to connect. Many parents find this a great way to introduce their young athlete to the benefits of massage therapy in a completely safe and supervised environment. Best For: Relaxation and reconnecting, and enjoying the benefits of massage together. We recommend Swedish massage for couples. however if one or both partners desire deep tissue or other specialized modalities, we can usually accomodate the couple with the right massage therapists to maximize the customization of each session. Benefits of Couples Massage The first benefit of a couples massage is quite obvious: it gives the couple the opportunity to unwind while the therapist provides a relaxing massage specific to the couples’ desires. The second benefit is the sometime surprising communication boost between both participants. Many couples report being able to speak more openly and honestly with their significant other after a couples massage. It provides time for a relaxed conversation which paves the way for a wonderful shared memory.

  • Sports Massage

    Sports Massage Developed to help with muscle systems used for a particular sport, sports massage uses a variety of approaches to help athletes in training -- before, during, or after sports events. Our therapists also incorporate stretching into the session. You might use it to promote flexibility and help prevent injuries. Many clients get sports massage after intense training and before events to help speed recovery and maximize their potential. Sports massage also helps muscle strains and aid healing after a sports injury. Best For: Preventing and treating injury while enhancing athletic performance. Benefits of Sports Massage Sports massage is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery. Athletes generally use massage therapy during training to promote and speed their potential, pre-event for relaxation and focus, and post-event for recovery, as well as to prevent or treat injuries. Post-event massage can reduce recovery time, enabling an athlete to resume training much sooner than rest alone would allow. When an athlete sustains an injury, skillful massage therapy can often speed and improve the quality of healing. Many of our clients are competitive high school and college athletes who find massage aids their training, relaxes them for events and gives them an edge over their peers.

  • Hot Stone Massage

    Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. Used along with other massage techniques, hot stones can be quite soothing and relaxing as they transmit heat deep into the body. Best For: Easing muscle tension without deep pressure; maximizing massage time. Hot Stone massage is among the most relaxing modalities and we recommend clients schedule 80 minute sessions to get the maximum benefit. What are the Origins of Hot Stone Massage? Dating back more than 2,000 years, heated stones were originally used in Chinese cultures for the purpose of improving internal organ functionality. Later, the use of stones for healing purposes moved into other areas of the world – North America, South American, Africa, Europe, Egypt and India – bringing with it traditions for diagnosing and treating diseases, as well as use in ceremonial sweat lodges. How Does Hot Stone Massage Work? Instead of manipulating the muscle and connective tissue using a vertical technique like in a traditional massage, hot stone massage releases muscle and body tension in a horizontal approach that results in an increase in the body’s blood flow. Increasing blood flow is always a good thing, says Poletti, because blood flow brings oxygen and fresh nutrients to the muscle tissue. Whether you have tight muscles or are under extra stress, hot stone massage can be a warm and relaxing way to relieve muscle tension and mental fatigue. How to Get a Great Hot Stone Massage? The quality of the treatment depends on how well the therapist has been trained, how skilled he or she is, and whether he or she enjoys doing the treatment. Some therapists don't like to do it because the hot stones are difficult to handle. A hot stone massage takes a lot of skill and sensitivity on the part of the therapist. Elements Massage therapists have specialized training and certifications in Hot Stone massage. What Happens During a Hot Stone Massage? Before you arrive, the massage therapist sanitizes the stones and heats them in bath of 120 to 150 degree water. The stones themselves are usually basalt, a black volcanic rock that absorbs and retains heat well, and have been smoothed by natural forces in the river or sea, or a modern engineered stone product with the same properties. You usually start face down, with the therapist working on your back. First, the therapist warms up the body with traditional Swedish massage, then massages you while holding a heated stone. As the stone cools, the therapist replaces it with another. The therapist uses many stones of various shapes and sizes – big ones on the big muscles, smaller ones on smaller muscles. The therapist might also leave heated stones in specific points along your spine, in the palms of your hand, on your belly, or even between your toes to improve the flow of energy in your body. Be sure to speak up if the stones are too warm or the pressure too intense. And you can always ask them to stop using the stones if you don't like how it feels. Who Shouldn't Get Hot Stone Massage? Hot Stone massage is not appropriate if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, or are on medication that thins your blood. You shouldn't get a hot stone massage if you are pregnant or sunburned. You also may want to reconsider if you are menopausal, as it may trigger a hot flash.

  • Trigger Point

    Trigger Point Massage Trigger point therapy is an integrated approach to the relief of myofascial pain and dysfunction. Trigger point massage involves deactivating trigger points – commonly experienced as “knots” in the muscle – that may cause local pain or refer pain and other sensations, such as headaches, in other parts of the body. Therapists apply manual pressure to relieve myofascial pain. Best For: Highly localized "knots" where the body holds tension. Our therapists incorporate Trigger Point therapy into other massage modalities, like Deep Tissue and Sports Massage. What are Trigger Points? Clients typically feel trigger points as “knots” in muscles and connective tissue that have persistent tension. Trigger points were first discovered and mapped by Janet G. Travell (President Kennedy's physician) and David Simons. Trigger points have been photomicrographed and imaged in MRIs. These points relate to dysfunction in the myoneural junction, also called neuromuscular junction (NMJ), in muscle, and therefore this modality is different from reflexology, acupressure and pressure point massage. How does Trigger Point Therapy Work? Trigger point therapy is a noninvasive therapeutic modality for the relief and control of myofascial pain and dysfunction. The goal of treatment is the client’s recovery from or a significant reduction in myofascial pain. The treatment goal is achieved through a systematized approach. Treatment consists of trigger point compression, myomassage, passive stretching, and a regime of corrective exercises. Success may be measured subjectively by the level of pain reduction experienced by the client and objectively through increased range of motion, strength, endurance, and other measures of improved function. Trigger point therapy relies heavily on client-therapist interaction, including verbal and nonverbal elements. The therapist encourages the client to be personally responsible for their improvement, with attention to such factors as nutritional intake, stress, proper exercises, mechanical abnormalities, and other physical components. These elements protect the client from delayed diagnosis, delayed treatment, or contraindicated treatment, which are the concerns of first order. What to Expect from Trigger Point Massage? Like Deep Tissue work , the pressure that therapist employ to trigger points can be uncomfortable during the massage and sore for a few days after. Clients should not experience real pain, however, and it’s important for the client and therapist to communicate to ensure the session stays within the client’s comfort zone. Remember that the “knots” likely developed over a period of years, and so may take repeated, intensive work to resolve.

  • Swedish Massage

    The most common type of massage is Swedish massage therapy. It involves soft, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes, on topmost layers of muscles. This is also combined with movement of the joints. By relieving muscle tension, Swedish therapy can be both relaxing and energizing. And it may even help after an injury. Best For: Relaxation, Stress Relief and First Massage Basic Strokes: Effleurage: a smooth, gliding stroke used to relax soft tissue Petrissage: the squeezing, rolling, or kneading that follows effleurage Friction: deep, circular movements that cause layers of tissue to rub against each other, helping to increase blood flow and break down scar tissue Tapotement: a short, alternating tap done with cupped hands, fingers, or the edge of the hand Why It's Called Swedish Massage Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology as opposed to energy work that is more common in Asian-style massage. Both Swedish massage and physical therapy were pioneered by a Swedish physiologist, Per Henrik Ling (1776-1839) at the University of Stockholm. In the early 19th century he developed a system called "Medical Gymnastics" which included movements performed by a therapist. These became the known as "Swedish movements" in Europe and "the Swedish Movement Cure" when they came to the U.S. in 1858. Today it is simply known as Swedish massage. Benefits The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.

  • Deep Tissue

    Deep Tissue = Deep Relief Deep tissue massage focuses on painful, stiff "trouble spots" in your body. The therapist uses slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of muscles, tendons, or other tissues deep under your skin. Though less rhythmic than other types of massage, deep tissue massage can be quite therapeutic -- relieving chronic patterns of tension and helping with muscle injuries, such as back sprain. Best For: Chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury. What is Deep Tissue Massage? Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Techniques that utilize deep-tissue/deep-muscle massage are administered to affect the sub-layer of musculature and fascia. These techniques require advanced training and a thorough understanding of anatomy and physiology. The muscles must be relaxed in order to effectively perform deep-tissue massage, otherwise tight surface muscles prevent the practitioner from reaching deeper musculature. It helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis. It is generally integrated with other massage techniques. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. How Does Deep Tissue Massage Work? When a client has chronic muscle tension or injury, therapists usually find adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the massage therapist often uses direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. What Can I Expect During My Visit? Massage therapists may use fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during the deep tissue massage. You may be asked to breathe deeply as the massage therapist works on certain tense areas. Will Deep Tissue Massage Hurt? At certain points during the massage, most people find experience some discomfort. It is important to tell the massage therapist when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range. Clients often have some stiffness or pain after a deep tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. The massage therapist may recommend applying an epsom salt bath or ice to a specific area after the massage. Benefits of Deep Tissue Massage Deep tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and clients who have sustained physical injury. It is not uncommon for receivers of deep tissue massage to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two. Unlike classic massage therapy, which is used for relaxation, deep tissue massage usually focuses on a specific problem, such as: Chronic pain Limited mobility Recovery from injuries (e.g. whiplash, falls, sports injury) Repetitive strain injury, such as carpal tunnel syndrome Postural problems Ostearthritis pain Fibromyalgia Muscle tension or spasm According to Consumer Reports magazine, 34,000 people ranked deep tissue massage more effective in relieving osteoarthritis pain than physical therapy, exercise, prescription medications, chiropractic, acupuncture, diet, glucosamine and over-the-counter drugs. Deep tissue massage also received a top ranking for fibromyalgia pain. People often notice improved range of motion immediately after a deep tissue massage.
