Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stones are used to massage the body; you receive the same benefits as a Swedish massage, deep tissue massage and trigger point work. The added benefit is heat that penetrates the muscle and tendon providing deeper work with less pressure.
The smooth texture of the rock and the heat provides dramatic stress reducing results. Many recipients go into a deep meditative state early in the session. The stone placement along the chakras helps clear the body’s enery system
Pregnancy massage is a natural therapeutic bodywork which focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be. Massage therapy improves the function of muscles and joints, eases sore areas, improves circulation and mobility, and encourages a sense of wellbeing and total relaxation.
Two of the major points of focus during pregnancy massage: positioning on the table (a side-lying position to ensure your comfort) and focus on special weight bearing areas like hips, back, shoulders and neck.
Indian Head Massage
Indian Head Massage is based on an ancient Ayurvedic healing system practised in India for over 1 000 years. It is a wonderfully relaxing therapy that involves massage of the soft tissues in the upper back shoulders arms neck scalp and face. The therapist uses a range of different massage pressures and rhythms to stimulate these areas and help balance natural energies and clear any localised areas of negativity. There are many benefits e.g. higher levels of alertness and concentration and relief from tension headaches and eyestrain. However Indian Head Massage is not just physical; it works on an emotional level also calming the spirit promoting relaxation and relieving stress
Deep Tissue Massage
The primary difference between traditional massage and deep tissue massage is that deep tissue massage is not primarily for relaxation and stress relief, but rather to focus on a specific problem. 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 fiber's 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, with the right treatment you should feel better than ever within a day or two.
