Types of Massage and Treatments

Choosing the massage that is right for you...

Relaxation / Circulatory /Swedish Massage: Swedish Massage, also known as Circulatory massage, is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. Circulatory massage stimulates the parasympathetic nervous. This system is responsible for creating our body's relaxation response. Oil or lotion is applied to the skin so techniques such as rolling, kneading and percussion can be applied with ease. These movements promote general relaxation and improve blood circulation and assist the lymphatic system in cleansing the body of toxins. Swedish massage is excellent for relaxation, seniors, as part of a detox or cleanse program, or those who prefer a lighter touch.

Deep Tissue Massage: Deep Tissue massage is a type of massage that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. This myofascial release is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore hips and shoulders.

Sports Massage: Sports massage is a form of massage typically used before during, and after an athletic event. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, drain away fatigue, relieve swelling, reduce muscle tension, promote flexibility and to prevent injuries.Great for golf, or any sports.

Shiatsu  
A form or massage originating in Japan and traditional medicine. Shiatsu means finger pressure " which describes the technique in Shiatsu therapy. Pressure with thumbs, hands, elbows, and knees is applied to pressure points on the body. This form of massage also focuses on rotating and stretching limbs, joints and pressure points, or medidians, as they are called in traditional  Chinese medicine. Traditionally done clothed, on a mat, on the floor, but can be done on a table. Patients wear comforatble loose clothing during session 

Ayurveda Abhyanga Treatment: Abhyanga is one of the main Ayurvedic therapies performed to restore dosha imbalances and also to enhance well-being and longevity. This is an oil treatment in which special herb infused oils are pushed gently into the skin and joints of the body. Abyhanga is traditionally is done either by one or two therapist. It is also performed as self massage on a daily basis. Sesame, coconut, safflower, or mustard oils are the base oils used and infused with different herbs according to your Dosha. The purpose of abhyanga is to restore or enhance the flow of energy by energizing marma points (points of energy) using dedication, and the sensations of nurturing healing touch produce by the use of longs strokes over muscles along with circular strokes on joints with organic herb infused oils.

Hot Stone Massage: Natural stone therapy penetrates heat deep into muscles to release tension as the warm stones help muscles release more quickly and deeply than in traditional massage. The long continuing warmth of the smooth stones promotes relaxation while energizing and revitalizing the central nervous system, accelerating overall circulation and alleviating stress.  A hot stone massage uses smooth, flat, and heated basalt river rocks which are placed at key points on the body. Basalt rocks have high heat retention qualities allowing the stones to hold and disperse heat to the muscle tissue. The stones are usually placed on specific points on the back, but can be placed other areas of tension.The heat of the rocks causes muscles to relax, allowing the therapist to apply deeper, more precise pressure if desired or necessary.

Hot Stones may be used as a complete treatment, a 1/2 hour back treatment, or as a sampler add on to any other massage,
