Swedish Massage incorporates light to medium pressure strokes designed to induce relaxation, improve circulation, and address minor aches and pains from everyday stress. Excellent for detoxification and promoting a general feeling of health and well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage uses the same strokes as Swedish, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on specific areas. Deep tissue massage is especially helpful for chronically stiff necks, tight lower backs, and sore shoulders; and works by physically breaking down adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement.
Trigger Point Therapy involves the direct application of pressure in a rhythmic pattern to specific trigger points. Trigger points, also known as knots, cause pain that can radiate and refer pain and tenderness to other areas of the body. Trigger points are very often the cause of headaches.
Sports Therapy incorporates stretching, deep pressure and vigorous strokes to increase blood flow to key muscle groups, aiding in muscle conditioning. Some sports massage movements use Trigger Point therapy to break down adhesions (knots in the muscles) and increase range of motion.
Thai Bodywork combines yoga stretches, muscle massage, and stimulation of meridians using acupressure and manipulation of body joints. Some techniques require therapists to use their feet, elbows, and knees in addition to their hands. Usually performed with the client on the floor wearing loose fitting clothing. Benefits include increased mobility, circulation, muscle relaxation, mind and body concentration and body detoxification.
Reflexology balances the nervous system by working reflex zones through acupressure points on the hands and feet. These points stimulate the energy meridian lines and organs throughout the body; promoting relaxation, healing, detoxification and general wellness.
Chair Massage has been proven to improve spirits and performance in the office and reduce sick days. It also is a great way to draw crowds and leave lasting impressions at an event. Chair massage is performed in 5 to 20 minute sessions in a specially designed massage chair. This convenient modality is done through the clothing. It focuses on key tension areas, such as the back, neck, shoulders and arms.
Aromatherapy involves the use of essential oils to help you with a wide variety of needs including relaxation, headache relief, sleep improvement and congestion relief.
Pregnancy Massage is a wonderful way to help alleviate discomfort and promote a sense of well-being. During a pregnancy massage (also called prenatal or maternity massage) pillows are used to keep the mother positioned safely and comfortably as she lies on her side. She will be draped with a sheet and only the body part that is being worked will be exposed.
