About Amor Largo LMT

Hi! I am a licensed massage therapist.I am committed to providing advance therapeutic massage. I work with celebrities, movie production and athletes.

Here are the different services and definitions that I offer.

Neuromuscular Therapy:

In neuromuscular therapy, the practitioner works with soft tissue to treat back pain caused by muscle strain. The practitioner uses his fingers, knuckles, or elbows to apply pressure in varying degrees to areas suffering muscle spasm.



Sports Massage:

Sports massage reduces pain, promotes relaxation, and prevents injury in athletes. It incorporates deep tissue massage, as the pressure applied may be stronger than other forms of massage. Sports massage can be used before, during, or after a sporting event.



Deep Muscle Therapy:

Deep muscle therapy massage uses slow strokes and intense pressure on connective tissue (the tissue that binds and strengthens the organs and other tissues, such as muscle). This relieves the patient of chronic tension and knots. Deep muscle therapy can be slightly uncomfortable, and more than one session may be necessary to cure chronic tension.



Deep Connective Tissue Massage:

Deep connective tissue massage uses slow strokes and intense pressure on connective tissue (the tissue that binds and strengthens the organs and other tissues, such as muscle). This relieves the patient of chronic tension and knots. Deep connective tissue massage can be slightly uncomfortable. More than one session may be necessary to cure chronic tension



Neuromuscular Integration and Structural Alignment:

In neuromuscular integration and structural alignment, the practitioner promotes muscular elasticity by stretching the tissues that surround muscles and organs. The result is correct posture that relieves the patient of pain and restricted movement.



Shiatsu/Acupressure:

Shiatsu/Acupressure is a traditional Japanese massage therapy in which the practitioner uses fingers (especially thumbs) and palms to locate areas of stiffness and stress. The practitioner rubs, squeezes, and applies pressure to areas needing attention.



Strain/Counter Strain:

Strain, or counter strain, is used to restore normal motion to a patient who is feeling pain. The practitioner locates a patient's points of maximum pain and then moves him or her into a comfortable position for two minutes, allowing muscles to return to normal position.



Stone Massage:

Stone massage is a method that combines heated basalt stones with traditional Swedish massage. The technique reduces stress, anxiety, aching muscles, and depression. The stones are heated in hot water and are placed on the spine and/or between the toes. This expands blood vessels and allows blood to flow. In some versions of stone massage, cooled stones are placed on the body after heated stones.



Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage:

Designed specifically for pregnant women, this massage reduces stress, decreases swelling in the arms and legs, and relieves pain in the back, muscles, and joints. The patient is appropriately propped with pillows during the session.



Scalp Massage:

A scalp massage increases blood circulation and promotes healthy hair growth. It also promotes relaxation and can help relieve headaches.



Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation:

Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation is a stretching technique that increases strength, flexibility, and range of movement. The practitioner focuses on specific muscle groups and provides resistance as the patient contracts the correct muscles, often in 30 second intervals.



Lomilomi - Traditional Hawaiian Massage:

In Lomilomi or traditional Hawaiian massage, practitioners use knuckles, thumbs, elbows, and forearms to relax the nervous system, increase circulation, and relieve pain. Lomilomi is especially popular in Hawaii, Japan, and Europe. Patients may be asked to pray, meditate, change their diets, and engage in other self-help activities to complement massage treatments.



Swedish Massage:

Swedish massage is considered the most common form of massage and uses firm pressure to promote relaxation, relieve muscle aches, and improve circulation. The practitioner uses gliding strokes, tapping, kneading, and friction. Massage oil is often used.
