Deep Tissue Massage is probably the most popular type of massage. To de-mystify the techniques generally referred to as “deep tissue massage” we try to unravel what it actually is. In the body, there are many layers of muscles underneath the skin, and fascia. These muscle fibers stretch from an origin to an insertion point. There are literally millions of string like muscle fibers in every muscle. These fibers become twisted- just like when you put your Christmas lights in a box when taking down your Christmas tree. Those strings become entangled and it becomes difficult to smooth them out. The same with muscles, that might get overused while sitting in front of a computer, or under used at that same activity. Massage moves through the layers to get to the root of the issue and help relieve tension by coaxing the muscle that is spasming or tight to release.

Best Deep Tissue Massage in Roeland Park
Best Relaxation Massage in Roeland Park
Relaxation massage utilizes long, soothing strokes to calm the nervous system. The therapist massages the muscles with long flowing strokes at a very slow pace. Unlike deep tissue massage, very little movement or stretching will occur during the session. Pressure is adjusted to client comfort level. Often clients report they fall asleep, or go into a deep meditative state during a relaxation massage. Slow down your mind and body, take some time to relax, and give your body the gift of slowing down.
Best Pregnancy/ Pre-Natal Massage in Roeland Park
Pregnancy massage is not something you leave to amateurs. Massage during pregnancy is completely safe so long as the therapist is well trained and knows the risks and how to avoid them. Every therapist at Imagine Wholeness is very well trained and understands proper techniques to provide a safe and effective session. We use cutting edge technology for table positioning, to ensure extreme comfort. Often our expectant mothers tell us they want to take our cushion system home with them because it is so comfortable.
After the first trimester, we strictly utilize the side line position. Mothers should only lie on their sides from 2nd trimester to birth. We often are asked if we can provide a table with a hole for the belly. That is a very dangerous position for pregnancy. These tables are not advised and can cause a number of complications. Therefore, we don’t use them and discourage anyone from using them.
We also offer a 9 pack of pregnancy massages for a huge discount. We hope you will register for the package at your baby shower. There are few gifts for a mom to be that are more helpful or valuable.
Best Sports and Medical Massage in Roeland Park
Often athletes come in to get a massage prior to competing, or after an event. The massage techniques utilized are completely different Sports Massage can be divided into two categories:
Pre Event Sports Massage which utilizes very rapid strokes in order to get the muscles twitching rapidly. The last thing you want to do to someone getting ready to perform is slow their muscles down. Athletic performance can often be enhanced by a pre sports massage within a few hours of competing.
Post Event Sports Massage: Unlike pre event massage, the post massage utilizes slow strokes and stretching. Often after competing an athlete can be very sore. The massage techniques can be very helpful in getting blood flow into the strained muscles and keeping the joints moving freely. Top athletes utilize pre and post massage regularly to make sure their performance is continuing to be enhanced as well as preventing injuries.
Whether you’re a yogi, CrossFitter, runner or partake in regular physical activity, sports massage can help you recover and increase your range of motion. Most athletes get a weekly massage. We recommend a minimum of one session per month.
Best Neural Reset Therapy in Roeland Park
How Does NRT Work?
In your body, there are specialized nerve bundles called mechanoreceptors. The receptors respond to pressure, velocity, vibration, stretch, and other forces. When receptors detect a change, a signal is sent to the spinal cord and then relayed to the brain. With NRT, the therapist briefly stimulates the receptors embedded in the selected muscle by asking for a position to be held or for a movement in a particular direction. Or the therapist taps on a muscle in such a way as to cause receptors to send a special message to the spinal cord. That new message goes through the spinal integrating center which will reset the nervous system so the muscle is optimized neurologically. With the reset, the muscular pain and tightness disappear within seconds.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage in Roeland Park
Lymphatic Drainage utilizes light touch techniques that pushes and encourages excess fluid buildup towards the bodies natural drains and ultimately towards the heart where it will be recirculated. This technique can help with pain and swelling that results from various maladies. Patients who have excess lymph tissue due to surgery or injury are perfect candidates for this work- if they get permission from their doctor. However, patients with congestive heart failure should NOT receive lymph drainage treatment as it is contraindicated for this condition.
