Massage For Relaxation

Therapeutic Massage

This is one of the most overlooked, yet accessible supportive measures for chronic pain and stress. This massage helps restore normal movement by releasing trigger points, removing toxins, and stretching shortened muscles. In addition to feeling relaxed and de-stressed, you may also discover renewed energy and motivation for physical activity.

Deep Tissue Massage

Techniques utilizing deep tissue/deep muscular massage are administered to affect the sub layer of musculature and fascia. This technique of massage helps the chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation, and it also reduces inflammation related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis.

Ashiatsu Oriental Bar Massage

Ruthie Hardee, author of “DeepFeet Bar Therapy” describes Ashiatsu as “a barefoot massage technique, using deep compression effleurage strokes that glide over the body. Correct application will provide deep relaxation and stimulate the lymphatic system of the body”. Therapists use bars above their head for support and balance while providing deep compressions with their feet. Many of our clients have tried this distinctive technique, and some have chosen to keep getting Ashiatsu every time instead of regular massage after their first experience.

Aromatherapy Massage

This treatment includes the use of essential oils to address many different types of conditions. From anxiety to the healing of scar tissue, essential oils in combination with massage will help to improve many different types of conditions. In addition to feeling great, your senses will have had an enhanced massage experience as well.

Hot Stone Massage

This treatment reaches a deeper level of relaxation by using heated volcanic stones, which are warmed to aid in breaking down toxins, loosening muscles, and releasing congestion. We massage the whole body with the stones and place them around trigger points to ensure optimum relaxation.

Reflexology

This treatment is only performed on the hands and feet, and it is used without the use of massage cream or oils. During this treatment, specific pressure techniques are applied to the reflex points on the feet and/or hands. This type of massage can help with addressing issues with the organs of the body by unblocking nerve impulses. This technique can be performed in a full hour session, or it can also be added into a full body massage for a chosen amount of time.

Pregnancy Massage

Specific prenatal massage techniques can reduce pregnancy discomforts and concerns, enhancing the physiological and emotional well-being of the mother and fetus. A skilled massage technique facilitates labor, shortens labor time, eases pregnancy pains and reduces anxiety. In addition to mild stretching, certain techniques used during pregnancy massage can greatly diminish back pain. In the postpartum period, specialized techniques can re-balance structure, physiology, and improve the emotions of new mothers.
