Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading to relieve pain, reduce inflammation, relax, stimulate and tone the body. Relaxation Massage does much more than relax the body, it also works on the soft tissues, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Relaxation Massage therapy stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.
Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes and those who sit for long periods of time.
Hot Stone Massage is often paired with Swedish Massage. Stones are heated and used with oils to sooth, warm, and massage your muscles. This allows your body to relax and release .
It is a holistic therapy which works on the principle that the feet mirror the body through a system of zones and reflex areas. Reflex points coincide with each organ and system in the body and are linked by energy channels. When these channels become blocked, illness or imbalance occurs. Application of pressure on reflex points aims to remove blockages allowing energy to flow freely, thus bringing the body back in balance.
Pregnancy Massage is used during and after pregnancy (prenatal or postnatal treatment). Pregnancy Massage will typically last an hour and will use a specially designed pillow to position a woman comfortably during the first and second trimester. The side lying position is also frequently used during the later stages of pregnancy
Sports Massage Therapy is geared towards athletes of every kind. From world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The massage technique is specific to the athlete’s sport of choice, focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive movements.
