Swedish Massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines lotions and oils with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and lengthening to help the body improve its circulation and flexibility. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get too uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Prenatal Massage is a style of bodywork designed specifically for pregnant women. Pregnancy is a time when a woman's body endures tremendous stress due to dramatic physical and emotional changes. Using various techniques specially developed for the expecting mother, Prenatal Massage helps release the pain and discomfort experienced throughout pregnancy. The benefits are profound, including emotional support, the relief of joint pain due to extra weight and postural imbalance, and improved breathing and relaxation. Special made prenatal pillows are used on the table so that the expectant mother will be as comfortable as possible.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for highly active people who engage in athletics and/or sport training. Engaging in sports is harsh on the body and can often lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports Massage enhances performance and prolongs a sports career by helping to prevent injury, reduce pains and swelling in the body, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and dramatically improve recovery rates. Sports Massage is also highly effective in aiding the rapid recovery of an athlete from an injury by encouraging greater kinesthetic awareness and in turn promoting the body's natural immune function. There may be more stretching motions added during a Sports Massage than in any other massage.
Scalp massage helps you to relax, relieves tension headaches, helps improve circulation of blood to the head and face, as well as helping those who suffer from insomnia. There are many nerve endings in the scalp that with massage will ultimately affect the whole body.
Sinus Massage is performed to promote drainage and alleviate congestion and pain. Lotions, essential oils, warm towels and mild neck/shoulder massage are used conjunctively to create an effective Sinus Massage.
Foot & Hand Massage
Foot & Hand Massage is performed to relieve the stress to the most over-used parts of the human body. Both your feet and hands are underestimated and rarely appreciated enough. This massage is great for a quick rejuvenation.
Ear Candling is still a new idea to most. However, it has been around for years and is an excellent way to alleviate many symptoms such as:
- Clears wax & debris from the ear canal
- Relieves pressure from behind the eardrum
- Sharpens mental functions, vision, hearing, taste & color perception
- Eases earache, headache & sinus pressure, eases allergies
- Relaxation from the negative charge of the herbal smoke
- Acts as a catalyst to clear nerve endings & promote healing
- Extremely relaxing, as you can hear the soft crackle of the candle, as if listening to a log fire in the winter time.
This technique burns two candles for each ear. Light neck and shoulder massage is incorporated to enhance the experience.
Chair massage is a popular way of relieving stress and releasing tension right in your home or workplace. You receive your massage in a specialized ergonomic chair which I bring to your location. In addition to the usual health benefits of massage, another benefit of chair massage is that it is done over the clothing. With seated massage, you can avoid the discomfort and awkwardness that you may feel in disrobing for a traditional massage. Also, chair massage sessions are usually shorter than traditional massage, making it convenient enough to fit into your busy schedule.
This style of massage can be scheduled and provided at all types of venues from festivals, fund raisers, nurse's and teacher's lounges, business rewards/office motivations, school functions, community programs, health fairs, bridal showers, baby showers and even at home during your girl's night out!
