Jamie Hannam's massage therapy services in Everett, Seattle and the Eastside include several modalities of professional massage therapy including Deep Tissue, Swedish, Sports Massage, Myofascial, and Reiki.
Based on the principles of human anatomy, therapeutic massage has been medically proven to be beneficial for supporting your overall health and wellness. Massage therapy not only offers relaxation and relief from chronic pain and stress, but also stimulates the body's natural healing abilities. The healing benefits of massage therapy include: an enhanced flow of blood to the heart, removal of waste products from tissues, increased circulation, increased movement of ligaments and tendon, improved range of motion after injuries, reduced stress and tension, and relief from chronic back and neck pain.
Jamie's massage techniques help restore your muscles and surrounding tissue to optimal condition, easing pain, releasing tension, and leaving you feeling your best!
Jamie offers the the following massage modalities:
Deep Tissue Massage
Similar to Swedish Massage, Deep Tissue Massage is focused on the deeper connective tissue in the body by using slower, deeper massage strokes to release very tight or tense muscles, postural problems, or recovery from injuries due to motor vehicle accidents, or sports injuries. This form of massage helps alleviate chronic muscle tension and pain.
The most recognized form of massage in the U.S., swedish massage is perhaps the most relaxing form of massage using long, gentle kneading strokes to improve circulation and to reduce stress. It enhances the body's circulation, and offers release from muscle tension and stress.
A recognized benefit for professional athletes, Sports Massage therapy is also beneficial for the non-professional weekend warrior. Sports Massage targets deep tissue, muscle-tendon junctions which promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, and results in improved recovery periods. Sports massage techniques are specific to an athlete's sport and focus on areas of the body that have been stressed or overused. Anyone participating in regular physical activity can benefit from Sports Massage which helps reduce the body's healing times and reduces muscle soreness after strenuous activity.
Reiki was developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. This form of massage is based on the premise that one's health is directly related to the balance of one's energy. The Reiki practitioner uses a series of hands-on positions to help remove any blockages to this energy. Reiki massage is deeply relaxing and can be a healing modality for treating anxiety, depression, and other disorders.
