Swedish Massage is the most common and best known massage. It involves long, fluid strokes of muscles and tissues with pressure that varies from light to medium firm. This type of massage is considered to be one of the most relaxing styles and goes beyond relaxation. This massage increases the level of oxygen in the blood, decreases muscle toxins, and improves circulation.
Deep Tissue is an intense massage. This technique uses slow, deep guided strokes and firm pressure designed to relieve severe tension and reach below the superficial muscles. Chronic muscle tension benefits from the deeper pressure focusing on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia.
Reflexology is based on the Chinese principle that certain areas on the soles of your feet or hands – known as reflex zones – containing millions of nerve endings, correspond to other parts of the body. Reflexology can be deeply relaxing and therapeutic for people suffering from plantar fasciitis, ankle injuries or even stress from everyday work and play.
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot Stone Massage is a form of massage therapy that follows the same principles of Swedish Massage with the addition of heated stones. This massage melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Hot Stone Massage promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, basalt stones at key points on the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
Massage Cupping Bodywork Therapy
Massage Cupping Bodywork Therapy is a wonderful ancient technique that has found its place in the modern world of healing. By creating suction and negative pressure, Massage Cupping Therapy is used to soften tight muscles and tone attachments, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue. It can bring hydration and blood flow to body tissues and drain excess fluids and toxins by opening lymphatic pathways.
