Types of Massage & Services Offered
Swedish massage is a system of long strokes, kneading and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints. This full body massage promotes relaxation, improves circulation, and helps increase joint mobility.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage releases the chronic patterns of tension in
the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the grain of muscles, tendons and fascia. It is called deep tissue, because it
also focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue.
Sports Massage combines traditional massage with a variety of compressions, and stretches focusing on muscle systems relevant to a particular sport.
Hot Stone Massage
Depending on your individual needs, hot stone therapy can unlock tension deep within the muscles, relieve stress or help you achieve total relaxation.
This centuries-old practice is used to relieve pressure, wax buildup and inner-ear blockage. The treatment involves placing a slow-burning cylinder gently into your ear. The cylinder is then lit at the opposite end to create a vacuum. You experience no discomfort whatsoever as the vacuum helps to soothe and relax your ear.
** Includes a soothing facial massage.
