Firm Swedish Massage
Swedish Massage incorporates a wide variety of massage techniques such as soft, firm, long, kneading strokes, as well as light, rhythmic, tapping strokes on superficial and deep layers of muscles. This technique is especially helpful after an injury, allowing the body to regain harmony with the natural rhythm of the central nervous system.
Deep Tissue Massage
After warming the tissue with Swedish strokes, deep pressure is used to reach and release deeper layers of muscle and fascia where aches and pains are held. Deep Tissue Massage can help with chronic pain, pinched nerves, injury rehabilitation, osteoarthritis, postural problems and limited range of motion.
Lymphatic drainage Massage
lymphatic system is responsible for moving fluid and waste through the body. By stimulating this system with massage, lymph works more efficiently, which in turn boosts the immune system, eliminates toxins and increases metabolism. Lymphatic massage is lighter and slower than traditional Swedish massage, while being deeply relaxing and beneficial to your health.
Craniosacral Therapy with A Firm Massage
Relieve pain and tension with this gentle blend of manipulation of the cerebral spinal fluid and pressure to specific acupressure points. This treatment clears blockages in meridians especially along the skull, spine, and pelvis. This treatment is great for someone with an injury or inflammation and in need of therapeutic touch to regain strength.
