This is the Ultimate De-Stressing Massage.
A classic blend of Swedish massage and restorative touch techniques which combine both slow and fast strokes of light-to-moderate pressure. This modality has also been shown to be helpful in decreasing anxiety and stress, while promoting healing and enhancing feelings of harmony and bodily well-being.
Deep Tissue Massage
A series of intense techniques are used to manipulate sore, tight muscles and connective tissue that holds them in place. Deep Tissue work increases circulation, releases built-up toxins, and heals and restores balance to the body and nervous system. It is important to stay hydrated after a deep tissue massage session to help flush lactic acid out of the tissues. If the lactic acid isn't flushed, you could be quite sore the next day.
Cranial sacral therapy (also known as CST) is a gentle form of bodywork that focuses on the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas to alleviate stress and pain. Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. CST is most often applied with the client lying down, fully clothed in a quiet and peaceful environment.
Swedish Massage techniques are applied to the outermost layers of the muscles and consists of five styles of long, flowing strokes including sliding/gliding, kneading, rhythmic tapping, cross fiber friction and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has been shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving range of motion.
Reflexology is a natural and gentle form of relaxation which promotes harmonization of the body, mind and spirit. By gently stimulating reflex points - primarily located in your feet and hands - which correspond to zones throughout the body, muscular tension and stress can be released giving you a feeling of peace and well-being. Reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and helps promote the natural function of the related ares of the body.
Gentle Geriatric Massage
Geriatric massage therapy is designed to address the specific needs of the elderly population. This type of massage for the elderly uses gentle and light application of massage techniques and can include passive stretching and a light oil or lotion to permit your muscles to be worked on without causing excessive friction to the skin. These techniques can help enhance blood circulation, improve balance and flexibility, reduce the pain of arthritis, increase joint mobility, improve posture, and encourage overall well-being.
