A relaxation massage is an entire body treatment that is suitable for everyone. This style of massage is the most widely practiced and popular technique, designed to improve blood circulation, promote relaxation, and provide relief from tense and tight muscles. During your treatment, your therapist will use their hands, forearms, and elbows to apply a light-to-medium pressure, massaging your muscles with long, gliding strokes. Other techniques that may also be used are kneading, deep circular movements, bending, stretching, and oscillatory movements that shake or vibrate the body. Trigger point release may also be incorporated if a contracted muscle or knot is found.
Deep tissue massage helps to treat chronic or recurring muscle pain. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. Sometimes involves the therapist using firmer pressure to reach these key areas and get them to release, which is why this massage is often recommended for people who are comfortable whit a slightly more intense touch. During a deep tissue massage, you may feel some discomfort. The discomfort should feel like a “good hurt”, the kind that feels good at the same time — like you’re giving your body something it’s been asking for.
Hot stone massage therapy helps melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness, and increase circulation and metabolism. Hot stones, when coupled with massage, also help to expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body.
The localized heat and weight of the stones warm and relax muscles, allowing the massage therapist to apply deeper pressure to those areas without causing discomfort.
Reflexology is the application of pressure to areas on the feet. The theory behind reflexology is that areas of the foot correspond to organs and systems of the body. Pressure applied to the foot is believed to bring relaxation and healing to the corresponding area of the body.
Prenatal massage is performed by a trained practitioner. It is targeted to the unique needs of mothers-to-be. A trained touch delivers a wide range of physiological, psychological and emotional benefits. It’s a safe and relaxing way to relieve pregnancy’s common discomforts like back and joint pain.
If you’re experiencing any of the normal discomfort associated with pregnancy, then the question is not if you want a pregnancy massage, but when is the best time to get one. The answer to that question is today — whether it’s a massage in the first trimester or third trimester. Generally, pregnancy massage uses moderate pressure applied to the muscle groups to relax muscle tension and improve lymphatic and blood circulation. These techniques specifically address many common discomforts associated with the skeletal and circulatory changes and hormone shifts pregnancy brings about.
Cupping therapy helps to stimulate blood circulation and improves its condition effectively. In cupping therapy, special cups are placed on the skin for a few minutes to create suction. The suction can increase blood circulation in the area where the cups are placed. This additional blood flow can potentially relieve muscle tension and facilitate the body’s healing process.
Cupping therapy can help with treating sore muscles, back and neck pain, headaches and migraines, and improve the overall bone and muscle health.
