Deep Tissue Massage
Scar tissue is broken down by means of slow, deep pressure using thumbs, elbows, palms, and forearms. Chronic patterns of tension are released throughout the body and range of motion is increased.
Soothing and calming relaxation massage is used to ease the body and eliminate stress while specific therapeutic techniques are applied to each massage to meet individual needs and goals. Leg cramping, muscle tension, hip, back and neck pain, headaches and edema (swelling) are just some of the concerns due to pregnancy that is targeted. Special considerations like trimester and high-risk pregnancies should be discussed with your RMT.
Therapeutic Style Stone Massage
An extremely relaxing full body massage using hot Basalt stones to achieve therapeutic results by warming muscle tissue and relieving stress. Achieves the same results as a deep tissue massage without the added pressure or pain. First time trying a hot stone massage? Try it out on your back and neck during your next Swedish massage at no extra cost. You won’t be able to wait for your next appointment!
Hot & Cold Stone Massage
Hot & cold stone temperatures mix together to form a soothing sensation that helps flush out toxins, increase circulation & give your body that energetic “reboot” it’s been needing! Clients with Plantar Fasciitis, ankle or calf problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, and TMJ will particularly benefit from this treatment.
Healing Migraine Massage
Shiatsu Massage points are applied to specific spots in the shoulders, neck, head, and face to treat a migraine while the client is experiencing one, as well as for preventative care against these nagging types of headaches. Treatment is beneficial for tension and stress-related headaches as well.
The ancient art of cupping is combined with the knowledge of connective tissue patterns to achieve myofascial release in the body, relieving scar tissue build up without excessive pressure. This full body treatment decreases pain, increases the range of motion, and enhances muscle function. EXCELLENT for clients with active lifestyles, whiplash, and chronic injuries.
Perfect to use before or after physical activity, or aid in muscle maintenance between sporting events. Specified sports massage techniques remove toxins, speed up recovery time, increase performance, warm tissues and achieve greater flexibility. Active Isolated Stretching techniques are combined in each treatment to meet individual client needs.
Manual Lymph Drainage
Rhythmical circular movements and light stimulating pressure targets the lymphatic system of the body to encourage natural drainage and elimination of lymph fluid (white blood cells and by-products of the circulatory system). Lymphatic Drainage decreases swelling, early signs of cellulite, and healing time after surgery. It also boosts your immune system and is beneficial for pregnancy, PMS and edema.
Reflexology is a non-intrusive complementary health therapy, based on the theory that different points on the feet, lower leg, hands, face or ears correspond with different areas of the body. Reflexologists work holistically with their clients and aim to work alongside allopathic healthcare to promote better health for their clients.
