Thai Dry Massage
Traditional Thai dry massage is an ancient healing system combining accupressure, Indian Ayurvedic principles, and assisted yoga postures.
Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions, Rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.
The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that are also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.
Thai massage integrates movements for the entire skeletal body, enhancing joint range of motion, increasing blood circulation to muscles.
AromaTherapy uses fragrant oils extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to naturally enhance the benefits of massage.
Specifically designed to promote circulation, helps aid tissue recovery and decreases pain.
This warming blend of AromaTherapy includes clove, sweet birch, rosemary and cypress which helps aid tissue recovery after physical exertion.
Additionally, the unique combination of aromatics are traditionally used to decrease pain in muscles and joints which naturally relaxes your body.
One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body.
This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.
But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation.
Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
Additional Swedish massage techniques include circular pressure applied by the hands and palms, firm kneading, percussion-like tapping, bending and stretching.
Balinese massage is a full-body, deep-tissue, holistic treatment.
Balinese massage uses a combination of gentle stretches, acupressure, reflexology, and aromatherapy to stimulate the flow of blood, oxygen and energy around your body, and bring a sense of wellbeing, calm and deep relaxation.
Balinese massage techniques include acupressure, skin rolling and flicking, firm and gentle stroking, percussion, and application of essential oils.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension.
The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles.
It is used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body.
The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
Hot stones have been used for centuries for their healing power of heat and energy.
Hot stone massage is relaxing and naturally therapuetic, aiding in the easing of muscle tension and stiffness, decreasing stress and anxiety, decreasing chronic pain, and aiding in warming deeper tissue.
