About Massage

Types of Massage


Acupressure:

Pressure applied to specific meridian points to help clear blockages of energy. This technique helps relieve many ailments such as back pain and nausea.


Craniosacral Therapy (CST):

Light-touch hands-on therapy that enhances the body's natural capacity for healing. CST has shown to be effective in treating a wide range of physiological issues associated with pain and loss of biomechanical, systemic and emotional function/wellbeing. CST is useful both as a primary treatment method and in combination with other traditional (physiotherapy) or complementary (massage) therapeutic techniques. The Craniosacral Therapy practitioner essentially encourages the body to release restrictions that it has been unable to overcome on its own. Rather than deciding how these changes should be made, the therapist follows the body's response as to how to proceed.


Deep Tissue Massage:

Used when a client specifically asks for more pressure. Best for relief of chronic pain or discomfort. It can be painful in tender areas but overall leaves clients with more range of motion and overall rejuvenation


Prenatal Massage:

Used to help alleviate stress on weight bearing joints of the hips, pelvis, knees and ankles. Prenatal Massage helps to relieve soreness in the muscles that are supporting the weight of the body. It also helps to ease pressure and pain of the nervous system including sciatic nerve pain. The nurturing and soothing touch promotes release of emotional and physical tension. 


Reflexology:

Massaging hands and feet, which encourages muscles to relax and blood vessels to dilate reducing circulatory restrictions. Reflexology works through the nervous system. Deep pressure applied reduces the congestion of nerve endings. 


Spinal Cord Injury Massage:

Increase range of motion, muscle strength and circulation. Massage will help decrease spasticity and help to relieve pain from postural distortion, as well as provide relief from chronic tendonitis. 


Sports Massage:

A more vigorous and fast-paced massage designed to help athletes gain more comfortable performance.


Therapeutic Swedish/Relaxation Massage: 

Full body massage integrating a number of techniques such as long strokes, kneading, and friction. Effective for relaxing muscles, easing tension and chronic pain, improving circulation and joint flexibility, reduces mental and physical fatigue & stress, creating an overall sense of well-being.


LaStone Therapy:

Swedish massage strokes using deep penetrating heated basalt stones and placement of cold marble stones on the body that creates a sedative & re-energizing response soothing away stress and sore muscles, reconnecting to the grounding and nurturing energy of the Earth.


Earth Medicine Hot Stone Massage:

Therapeutic relaxation massage combined with deep penetrating hot stones. A creation meant to satisfy those who need the healing medicine of the stones & the physical touch of massage.


Raindrop Therapy:

A soothing aromatherapy treatment using very specific oils and techniques along the spine and spinal reflex area of the foot. Effective for eliminating bacteria & viruses stored there, creating balance, re-alignment, flexibility, and decompression of the spine.


Access Consciousness Bars Sessions:

An energetic process where 32 points on the head are lightly touched and held clearing your limitations you have about different areas of your life and body. These include money, aging, body, sexuality, joy, sadness, healing, creativity, awareness, and control plus many more. 


Access Consciousness Body Processes:

Verbal precesses and hands-on body work that unlock the tension, resistance, and dis-ease of the body.


Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy:

Helps to restore the body to its natural balance by correcting the position of organs that have shifted and restrict blood flow, lymph, nerve and chi energy.


Reiki:

A Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by laying on hands and is based on the idea that an unseen life force energy flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's life force energy is low we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
