Styles of Massage
Each therapist has received professional training in different massage specialties.
Releases the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons, and fascia. It is called deep tissue because it also focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
Massage based around a system of points in the hands and feet thought to correspond, or “reflex,” to all areas of the body.
Shiatsu and Acupressure
Oriental-based systems of finger pressure which treat special points along acupuncture “meridians” (the invisible channels of
energy flow in the body).
A system of long strokes, kneading and friction techniques
on the more superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints.
Is used to help the mother-to-be with the psychological, emotional and physical changes that incur during the 9 months of pregnancy. It relaxes and tones muscles, improves skin tone and circulation, stimulates the Lymphatic System, and prepares the body for childbirth.
Is a form of deep tissue therapy that conveys the following benefits: speeding the healing of injuries and clearing bruises, stimulating blood circulation and regulating the nervous system, removing scar tissue, easing emotional distress, curing some conditions affecting the internal organs, increasing flexibility in the joints and improving posture, relieving chronic pain, maintaining wellness and functioning as a form of
preventive care, improving athletic performance, and strengthening the body’s resistance to disease.
Many meridians and reflex zones run through the face. When you affect points on the face, you are affecting deeper layers of complexity. Specific points reduce pain from TMJ, headaches and eye strain from computer fatigue.
