Types of Massage Services We Offer
Swedish massage is the most popular type of massage. This massage is very relaxing and improves circulation by manipulating the soft tissues. You will feel general relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions and improved circulation. This will allow you to experience increased bodily functions like cell growth, regulation, and organ function.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep Tissue Massage focuses on the sub-layers or fascia of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is helpful for chronic muscle pain, injury rehab, and inflammation-related discomfort due to tendinitis, arthritis, and tendinitis. While Swedish massage is more about relaxing the superficial muscles, Deep Tissue massage works with the connective tissue surrounding and beneath the muscles.
Chair massage is not to be confused with massage chairs (the vibrating ones you can sit in), and it's a way of relaxing muscular tension by manual manipulation. The chair is specially designed to support the client while they lie down facing forward in the chair. After the client has settled in the chair, the massage therapist can begin to focus different massage techniques on specific areas to relieve tension and discomfort. These massages last between 15 and 30 minutes.
Aroma Therapy Massage
Aromatherapy massage refers to Swedish massage that uses massage oil or lotion containing essential oils (highly concentrated oils from plants). Aromatherapy massages allow you to inhale essential oil molecules and absorb them through the skin. Aromatherapy oils are believed to stimulate positive changes in the mind and body through the stimulation of the limbic system (a part of the brain that is involved in emotion).
Ayurvedic massage uses the 5,000-year old Indian principles of Ayurveda -the science and practice of life--and pressure points. This massage helps to restore balance between the mind, body and spirit and aid in healing. This massage is sometimes called an "oil massaging" as it uses warm herbs essential oils and time-honored, non-traditional strokes and movements that are tailored to each person's needs.
