Deep tissue massage is a therapeutic type of massage modality that helps relieve pain, reduce stress, and work on a specific problem. Deep tissue massage is great at breaking down scar tissue and getting your blood circulating. Although, it can leave you sore for the next few days.
Great for cleansing! It is a type of massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products (toxins) away from the tissues back toward the heart so your body can cleanse itself. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. Massage cupping uses a very light suction providing drainage, while heavier application can be used to stimulate circulation, liquefy deposits of the layers of accumulation that is stagnant lymph, blood and debris.
Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils for psychological and physical well-being. Essential oils are 50 to 70 times more powerful than herbs. I use them in my practice to have a more effective massage. I also do a clinical approach to essential oils using the AromaTouch technique developed by DoTerra. This experience helps with stress relief, immune support, inflammatory response and homeostasis.
Abdominal massage helps to release physical and emotional congestion from the abdomen and pelvic bowl. This, in turn, improves the flow of energy and fluids of the circulatory, lymphatic and nervous systems and prevents the progression of chronic disease.
Sports massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. The particulars of the sports massage technique are specific to the athlete's sport of choice. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements. Athletes have discovered that specially designed sports massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares their body and mind for optimal performance.
Hot Stone Massage
Heated smooth, volcanic rocks are used throughout the massage to warm and relax your muscles. Your muscles melt to the floor - it feels so good.
MyoZen Therapy is a comprehensive proven method developed by Margie Meshew over 20 years ago. It is based on both western and eastern medical massage incorporating components of neuromuscular, myofascial and acupressure point therapy. It utilizes biomechanical techniques from an ancient eastern healing massage that allow the therapist to target specific areas, for maximum results with minimal effort. Myo- stands for the laser focus treatment of the muscle, Zen- for the state of mind that the therapist can access. By using a variety of procedures, you will be resting in a Zen-like state allowing the muscle to slowly release.
Prenatal massage is a wonderful and luxurious way to help your body adjust to the changes of pregnancy, promote homeostasis as well as prepare for labor. The ability to allow tired muscles to release and a busy mind to turn off are helpful skills to carry into labor and parenthood. It's also a wonderful time to connect with your growing baby.
