Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes to massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks. It has also been shown to be helpful in individuals with poor circulation.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is not only a matter of pressure, but it is designed to get into the deeper muscles and structures of the body. It can be deeply relaxing and should not be painful. This massage tends to release a lot of trapped toxins, i.e. lactic acid, from the muscle tissue.
Pregnancy is a time of changes, both physical and emotional. Prenatal massage is designed to nurture the mother-to-be while paying special attention to her structural changes and physiological needs. It is safe for all stages of a normal pregnancy.
Bamboo Fusion™ Massage
In Bamboo Fusion Massage, warm pieces of bamboo of different shapes and sizes are used to provide Swedish or deep tissue massage. The warmth melts the outer layer of muscle, allowing the therapist to penetrate more deeply without as much pressure. For those who like deep work, the bamboo tools allow for deeper pressure than the hands alone can provide. The massage satisfies two major needs: relaxation and well-being.
Bamboo Fusion offers many of the benefits of Hot Stone massage with a few extras. Because of the size and shape of the bamboo pieces, Bamboo Fusion massage can be deeper and more specific than the stones. Stimulation of the tissue by the bamboo sticks is believed to relieve this "sluggish state," by dissipating the heat that results from an accumulation of toxins and poor circulation, much the same as what would occur through deep-tissue work, trigger-point activation, or various acupressure techniques. Some recipients of bamboo massage have described these releases as a whole-body tingling or a warming sensation.
Based on the theory that the body is represented through reflexes on the feet, hands and ears. By activating these reflexes on the feet, the health of the body will be enhanced. Includes a warm foot bath before treatment.
Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki is a Japanese word meaning “universal life energy.” It is a band of energy frequencies, which can interact with living cells to support the natural healing process. This treatment is performed with the client fully clothed using only a light touch on the body. Frequent sessions are recommended for chronic conditions. Many people report a warm or “glowing” sensation and a deep state of relaxation.
