What is Deep Tissue Massage?
Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release 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 fibres of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles not with the grain. Deep tissue massage helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Deep tissue massage usually focuses on more specific areas and may cause some soreness during or right after the massage. However, when the massage is done correctly you should feel better than ever within a day or two.
Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is the application of thermo-therapy massage using heated basalt lava stones. This massage evolved from more traditional uses of stones in Native American and Japanese cultures. The ancient art of stone or crystal healing is believed to transmit healing energy.
Lava stones in all shapes and sizes are used because of their smooth quality and their ability to retain heat and cold. This makes them ideal for use in massage. As the deep penetrating heat of the stones begins to release tension and nervous fatigue, the client will experience a more balanced flow of positive energy. This type of massage is great for stress, tight muscles, and pain from arthritis and will provide a very deep level of relaxation.
Aromatherapy is the art and science of using essential oils, the aromatic extracts of plants and flowers, for health and well-being. The action of an essential oil on the body is holistic, combining both physical and mental aspects. Essential oils work together with all parts of the body, strengthening the body rather than weakening it. Aromatherapy aids the body's own natural healing process on many levels. A soothing Aromatherapy massage with beautifully scented natural essential oils known for their medicinal properties is an excellent choice for reducing stress and enhancing overall well-being. This treatment is provided by an Aesthetician.
Reflexology is a science that deals with the principle that there are reflex areas in the feet and hands which correspond to all the glands, organs and all parts of the body. Reflexology is a unique method of using the thumb and fingers on these reflex areas.
Benefits: Relieves stress and tension. Improves nerve and blood supply. Promotes the unblocking of nerve impulses. Helps the body return to a state of homeostasis.
