Massage therapy is becoming more accepted than ever before as an effective tool to heal from injuries, relieve stress, recover from events such as surgery or childbirth, lower blood pressure, increase circulation, move through emotionally challenging times, and generally to increase well-being. As with any therapist, it is not always easy to find the right fit for your needs and schedule. Moving Mountains Massage arose from the need to find excellence and professionalism from among the ever-expanding sea of bodyworkers in the Boulder area, and make these talented therapists available to people who value the benefits of massage therapy and are looking for the right fit. We have a thriving community of chair massage therapists at Alfalfa’s in downtown Boulder and you can see our current schedule. We offer private table massage by appointment and are delighted to answer questions and discuss your needs. Please contact us any time. Thank you for visiting our site and we hope to see you soon! -The Moving Mountains Team
Chair Massage Chair massage is an excellent way to get a tune up while not having the formality of a table massage session. It is often conducted in public settings such as a café or in an office, on a special massage “chair” and it allows the therapist to target specific or chronic areas of tension or pain. It is also a great way to slow down, de-stress and take stock of how your body is actually doing for a few minutes during a busy day. Anywhere from a few minutes to a half hour can leave you refreshed, looser and ready to face the rest of the day! Our chair massage therapists are available for special events and corporate settings.
Deep Tissue Deep tissue massage focuses on the muscles underneath the surface of the superficial muscles. Deep tissue pressure aims to relieve tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This modality is particularly helpful for people who experience consistent pain, athletes and patients who have sustained physical injury. Deep tissue massage is also useful for people who have high thresholds for tension. It can cause temporary soreness afterward.
Prenatal/Postpartum Pregnancy can bring on a range of new and interesting things in the body, with waves of hormones and a growing baby. Massage can help treat some of the unpleasant things that may come along, including sciatica, hip and knee tension, tired, aching feet, lower back and shoulder stress. Compassionate prenatal massage can also help open up and relax areas that you didn’t realize were tense, along with providing an overall sense of relief and well-being. This is a wonderful time to pamper yourself! Massage can also help in postpartum recovery, from easing swelling in the ankles and legs, to helping the body let go of tension from delivery.
Sports Massage Athletes can benefit tremendously from regular massage. Runners may struggle with tight or sore hamstrings, knees, legs and low-back. Tennis players may work with sore hands, forearms and shoulders. Even for average gym workouts with cardio and/or weight training, massage encourages the recovery process between all athletic endeavors. It can help you feel stress-free and ready for your next session!
