Massage by Valerie Scarberry

An unforgettable touch...

History

My name is Valerie Scarberry and I am a Licensed Massage Therapist in Central Ohio. I am a member of the International Massage Association. I graduated from the American Institute of Alternative Medicine in September 2006. My practice includes in home and office visits, hotels in the Columbus area, fundraising, massage parties and corporate events. I perform swedish massage and deep tissue work with trigger point. I also offer aromatherapy for those who want to take their massage to the next level.

 

Types of Massages

*Swedish massage is a firm but gentle pressure to improve the circulation of blood and lymph, ease muscle aches and tension, improve flexibility and create relaxation. Swedish is the most common type of massage with its long gliding strokes, friction, percussion, and kneading techniques.
 
*Deep tissue massage uses many of the same techniques as Swedish. However, the massage is focused more on the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia. Deep tissue is a
focused type of massage, as the therapist works to release chronic muscle tension or knots.
 
*Trigger point is when pressure is then applied to the trigger point or trigger band in order to relieve the pain and dissolve the point. As a trigger point is held, the muscle tension yields to the finger pressure, enabling the fibers to release and allow the blood to flow more freely, and toxins to be released and eliminated.
