A proven & effective means of stress relief and relaxation
Massage Therapy is increasingly being recommended by doctors and other health care professionals to complement traditional medicine as research proves its healing effects.
One of the most popular forms of Massage Therapy today. One of the main goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax your entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. In addition to relaxation, the Swedish massage is beneficial for increasing your blood oxygen level, improving circulation, decreasing muscle toxins and flexibility. Other Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, percussion-like tapping, firm kneading, bending & stretching.
Deep Tissue Massage
Similar to Swedish massage, the Deep Tissue Massage provides deeper pressure to the muscles and is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle pain. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and the protective layer surrounding muscles as well as your bones and joints.
Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend warriors. Sports Massage techniques differentiate based on the type of sport you play and will focus on the areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements.
Massage therapy during pregnancy is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness for you and your baby. Massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches, pain and swelling. Furthermore, massage reduces stress on weight-bearing joints, encourages blood and lymph circulation, helps to relax nervous tension-which aids in better sleep and can help relieve depression or anxiety caused by hormonal changes.
Being massaged with the soft salt stones helps balance the positive ions with negative ions. This helps reduce inflammation as well as make you feel calmer and more relaxed. The minerals provide a gentle exfoliation on the skin, making the skin feel smooth and soft after your massage session. Massage alone is detoxifying because it moves the blood and the lymph around in the body. You can expect the same effect with Salt Stone as it helps circulate the toxins out of your body.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a specialized massage type that gently assists the lymphatic system in maintaining the body’s fluid balance, blood circulation, and immune mechanisms. Lymphatic massage can benefit a variety of patients as it assists in removing toxins and waste from the body. During a lymph drainage massage, a specially trained massage therapist uses a series of gliding, compressing, stretching, and cupping motions over the client’s body. The light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system without compressing the vessels – allowing lymph to move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes. *Please consult with your primary physician to see if this massage therapy will benefit your health needs.
