Relaxation Massage is often referred to as the “Swedish massage”, which is a classic and most popular type of massage treatment. A research studied at Standford University concluded that 100% of all illness is caused by stress. The goal of relaxation massage is to reduce stress using light to firm pressure on the more superficial layers of the muscles. Relaxation massage is often recommended for first time massage clients and is excellent for improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
Deep tissue massage is similar to Swedish massage. It takes one step further to address chronic pain and injury. For more intense muscle relief, Deep Tissue Massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Our Deep Tissue Massage can help reduce pain, increase range of motion, relieve muscle spasms and improve circulation. It is the perfect choice for anyone seeking a deeper release of tension.
HOT STONE MASSAGE
Hot stone massage is a premium massage that combines massage therapy with the placement of smooth, water-heated stones on key points of the client’s body to maximize the therapeutic benefit. The heat from the stones is deeply relaxing and helps to increase circulation of both the vascular and lymphatic systems and melt away tension. Your experience would be of warmth and relaxation. This massage detoxifies the body and manipulates your tight muscles more deeply.
TABLE TOP THAI MASSAGE
Thai Massage is a very holistic practice and has been practiced for more than 2,500 years. Many of the techniques used in the ancient healing art of Thai Massage can be used on the massage table. This style is widely performed by in Thailand hotels using a quest’s bed rather than the traditional mat on the floor. Table Top Thai Massage is similar to Traditional Thai massage except that it is performed on top of a massage table instead of on the floor. For those of us in the west, Table Top Thai provides clients and therapists who cannot work on the floor an alternative that does not sacrifice any of the numerous healing benefits of Traditional Thai Massage. It is recommended that a client with a full sessions (typically 60-100 minutes) to have maximum benefit of the healing body work. The session includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body; this may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking the knuckles, and arching the recipient into bhujangasana (or cobra position).
Massage cupping is essentially the inverse of the typical massage therapy. Instead of exerting pressure on the different points of the body for healing, massage cupping uses suction to tug the skin, tissues and muscles upwards. Massage cupping has been known to be used over the centuries by all cultures and the oldest records of traditional Chinese medicine where glass, plastic, or bamboo cups are used on the skin’s surface. This mobilizes blood flow and allows for a deeper release during the massage. The suction in the cups causes the skin and superficial muscle layer to be lightly drawn into the cup. Even hands, wrists, legs, and ankles can be ‘cupped’.
Acupuncture treatments can be traced back to as far back as 5,000 years ago in ancient China. It is a millennia old practice of inserting fine needles at specific point of body to strengthen, stimulate and relieve symptoms of disease. It can be used to treat many types of health conditions, including chronic pain, weight loss, women’s and men’s health problems as well as illness stemming from a weak immune system.
