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

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 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.
