Swedish massage is a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as gliding, kneading, rolling, and percussion to help improve circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and may include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels, enhanced mental clarity, and greater flexibility.
Sports Massage is a type of massage designed for active people. Engaging in sports or other repetitive activities puts stress on the body and can lead to injuries in both the short and long term. Sports massage enhances performance and can prolong a person's ability to engage in his or her chosen activity by helping to prevent injury, improve fluid circulation, reduce pain, relax the mind, increase flexibility, and decrease the amount of time needed to recover from exertion. Sports massage is also highly effective in accelerating recovery from an injury by improving circulation, enhancing the healthy formation of scar tissue, maintaining range of motion, locating and deactivating trigger points, and facilitating an athlete's return to training with less chance of re-injury.
Reflexology is a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to specific reflex areas of the feet. Unlike foot massages that are intended to relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth approach that aims to harmonize the entire body. According to reflexology theory, every part of the human body is mapped on the feet. (You may add hot stones to your reflexology treatment with an additional charge of $10. Please notify in advance.)
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Using a soft touch, generally no greater than about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system. By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and may be effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction.
Hot Stone Massage is a style of bodywork in which heated stones are placed at specific sites on the body and held in the therapist's hands during the massage to deepen relaxation and promote circulation in muscles. Muscles that are heated with these stones may release tension and stress more deeply and quickly than with a traditional massage. The overall experience is very relaxing, nurturing and rejuvenating. (Please indicate hot stones when making your appointment.)
