Swedish massage therapy can be very gentle and relaxing. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. If you’ve never had massage before, this is a good one to try first.
Deep Tissue Massage:
Deep-tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage, but will concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body, by using deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes
Hot Stone Massage:
Hot Stone Massage promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones. It is very soothing because the heat from the stones will transport through the key points of your body to help improve circulation of the blood.
Neuromuscular Therapy – NMT:
NMT is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage the client actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment.
Aromatherapy naturally enhance the benefits of Massage using the oils extracted from flowers, herbs, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant. The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.
Warm Wax Bath:
Warm Wax Bath also know as “dips”, has been used for several years to soothe many ailments including Arthritis pain, inflammation as well to hydrate, softening and moisturizing the skin.
Before and during your session, communication is encouraged with your professional massage therapist so that your massage is customized to your specific needs.
