Massage Treatments

Back, Neck & Shoulders

Gives specific attention to the shoulder and neck where most of the muscular tension lies through a combination of effleurage (light stroking techniques to warm the area, spread the oil, and relax the muscles before the deeper techniques), circular kneading movements, thumb frictions, lymph draining and pressure points.

Relaxation Massage

Relaxation massage is essentially the same as a gentle Swedish massage that uses smooth, gliding strokes. The primary purpose will be to help you relax, and the massage therapist will probably move at a slower pace and use light pressure.

During a relaxation massage there is less emphasis on working out serious adhesions or knots in the muscle tissue and the therapist won't push your pain limits in order to get the muscle to release. Sometimes people even fall asleep during a relaxation massage.

There are still substantial health benefits to a relaxation massage, including calming the nervous system, promoting a sense of well-being, improving blood circulation and stimulating the body's lymphatic system, which carries away waste products.

Swedish Massage

Swedish massage uses softer strokes on the bonier and more delicate parts of the body, and stronger strokes where there is thicker muscle coverage. This sensitivity to pressure makes it ideal for relaxation. The term "Swedish Massage" refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. The main purpose of Swedish massage is to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles.

Swedish massage uses five styles of strokes. The five basic strokes are effleurage  (sliding or gliding), petrissage  (kneading), tappotement  (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fibre or with the fibers) and vibration/shaking.

Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with  osteoarthritis  of the knee over a period of eight weeks

Sports Massage

Prepare for performance, reduce muscle tension, drain fatigue, relieve swelling, promote flexibility and to prevent injuries before, during, and after events for athletes, joggers, cyclists or bodybuilders.

Most athletes require attention to the leg and buttock muscles.

Benefits are reduction in heart rate, muscle tension, blood pressure, increase in blood circulation, lymph flow, improved flexibility and pain relief.

Deep Tissue Massage

A massage technique that works on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. Similar to Swedish massage, deep tissue massage uses slower and firmer strokes and pressure than other treatments - deep finger pressure that concentrates on particular areas, and follows or goes across the fibres of muscles and tendons. Deep tissue massage is a particularly effective massage for people with muscular pain. Deep tissue massage helps to refresh and relax muscles, increasing the blood flow and therefore the oxygen flow around your body. This gets rid of toxins in very sore and strained muscles, which helps them to strengthen and heal.

Deep Tissue massages loosen fibres of the muscle whilst releasing deeply-held patterns of tension. They help toremove toxins whilst relaxing and soothing the muscle. It is both corrective and therapeutic. By using slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction across the grain of the muscle, a deeper level of stimulation is achieved when needed. It also helps to break up and eliminate knotted tissues. As it focuses on more specific areas it may cause some soreness during or right after the massage, which will feel better within a day or two.

Deep Tissue massages feel good and are beneficial to your health. When muscles are stressed they block oxygen and nutrients, leading to inflammation that builds up astoxins in the muscle tissue. The massage loosens the muscle, releases toxins and gets blood and oxygen circulating more efficiently. It is important to drink plenty of water after a deep tissue massage to help drain these toxins from your body.

Reflexology

Reflexology is based on the Chinese principle that certain areas on the soles of your feet or hands – known as reflex zones – containing millions of nerve endings, correspond to other parts of the body.

Reflexology is a natural, healing therapy. It is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part and organ of the body. Applying pressure to these reflexes releases blockages, which interfere with the body’s natural energy flow. Reflexology is mainly applied to the feet, is a deeply relaxing and energising therapy which stimulates healing and treats the whole person. Whilst stimulating the body’s own healing force, tensions are eased, circulation is improved, toxins are eliminated, and the client experiences a sense of well being.
