Shiatsu Massage ~ is a Stimulating and Invigorating Massage with stretches, muscle release techniques, rocking movements, joint rotations and direct firm pressure on acupoints and meridians. Similarly based on acupuncture and Chinese medicine, Shiatsu uses the same knowledge of meridians and acupoints but with therapeutic touch instead of needles. Shiatsu is a meridian-based therapy and treats the meridians on which your tensions and weaknesses are situated. (Can be performed while client is wearing clothes)
Trigger Point Therapy ~ is based on the discoveries of Drs. Janet Travell and David Simons in which they found the causal relationship between chronic pain and its source, myofascial trigger point therapy is used to relieve muscular pain and dysfunction through applied pressure to trigger points of referred pain and through stretching exercises. These points are defined as localized areas in which the muscle and connective tissue are highly sensitive to pain when compressed. Pressure on these points can send referred pain to other specific parts of the body, with the use of hands, elbows, forearms, knuckles, fingers on a specific body parts that are in need of healing.
Sports Massage ~ is designed to enhance athletic performance and recovery. There are three contexts in which sports massage can be useful to an athlete: pre-event, post-event, and injury treatment. Pre-event massage is delivered at the performance site, usually with the athlete fully clothed. Fast-paced and stimulating, it helps to establish blood flow and to warm up muscles. During the massage, the athlete generally focuses on visualizing the upcoming event. Post-event massage is also delivered on site, through the clothes. The intent here is to calm the nervous system and begin the process of flushing toxins and waste products out of the body. Post-event massage can reduce recovery time, enabling an athlete to resume training much sooner than rest alone would allow. When an athlete sustains an injury, skillful massage therapy can often speed and improve the quality of healing.
Active Isolated Stretching (AIS) ~ This method of fascial release provides effective stretching of major muscle groups and functional and physiological restoration of superficial and deep fascial planes. specific muscles are optimally lengthened, without triggering the protective stretch reflex. AIS removes toxins from the bodies cells and allows for significant improvements in the muscle elasticity, range of motion and eliminates postural distortions.
Lymphatic Drainage ~ is a form of massage therapy whereby a light undulating pressure technique is used to manipulate the flow of lymphatic fluids. Gentle and rhythmic pumping techniques are performed on the skin in the direction that lymph flow should be. This will ease congested areas and restore the flow of the lymphatic system to remove waste fluids and chemicals from the body. The lymphatic vessels also carry substances that the body needs to properly function and defend itself against disease and illness.
This massage is essential for Post Surgery Patients, Cancer, Liposuction, Weight loss, Fibromyalgia, Detox Programs, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Injuries, Circulation, Edema, Healing the Skin, Burns, Scars and Stretch Marks, as well as reducing Pain, Swelling and increasing Immunity and well-being.
Typical Treatment Sessions are 10-12 (90 Min) sessions, from once per week to twice per week. Your Doctor will direct you accordingly after your medical procedure is sufficiently healed and ready for massage.
Reflexology ~ an ancient and respected Eastern philosophy based technique that stimulates points found on the foot that correspond to many areas of the human body and their associated organs. Applying reflexology will rejuvenate the entire body as well as increase homeostasis.
Myofascial Release ~ is the three-dimensional application of sustained pressure and movement into the fascial system in order to eliminate fascial restrictions and facilitate the emergence of emotional patterns and belief systems that are no longer relevant or are impeding progress. First, an assessment is made by visually analyzing the human frame, followed by the palpation of the tissue texture of various fascial layers. Upon locating an area of fascial tension, gentle pressure is applied in the direction of the restriction. Myofascial release is an effective therapeutic approach in the relief of cervical pain, back pain, fibromyalgia, scoliosis, neurological dysfunction, restriction of motion, chronic pain, and headaches.
Neuromuscular Therapy (NMT) ~ is a comprehensive program of soft-tissue manipulation balances the body’s central nervous system with the musculoskeletal system. Based on neurological laws that explain how the central nervous system initiates and maintains pain, the goal is to help relieve the pain and dysfunction by understanding and alleviating the underlying cause. Neuromuscular therapy can help individuals who experience distortion and biomechanical dysfunction, which is often a symptom of a deeper problem. It is also used to locate and release spasms and hypercontraction in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, rebuild the strength of injured tissues, assist venous and lymphatic flow, and restore postural alignment, proper biomechanics, and flexibility to the tissues.
Reiki Healing ~ often referred to as the Usui System is a hands-on energy healing art. It was originated in Japan in the early 20th century by Mikao Usui, who had a life-changing experience of light and energy that he recognized as reiki--sacred life force--and that awakened his innate healing abilities. He developed a system of practices that enabled others to become effective healers. In a reiki healing session, the practitioner, trained to access and serve as a channel for the life force (ki or chi), places her hands on or just above the client’s body in order to activate healing energy within receptive points on the body. The practitioner’s hands move progressively with a passive touch through twelve positions on the body, remaining in each position for three to five minutes. As a harmonic flow of energy is strengthened, within the client and practitioner, healing occurs through the return of physical, mental, and spiritual balance.
Hot/Cold Stone Therapy ~ is an effective technique that adds the sensation of warmth to the benefits of a massage session. Soothing Basalt stones incorporate radiant warmth which provides deep relaxation, while softening fascia, relaxing muscles, tendons and increases circulation.
Chair Massage ~ a portable method performed on client with clothes on to reduce tension, relieve pain, anxiety, lower blood pressure and heart rate, increase attention, and stimulate the immune system. Multiple sessions benefit stress, depression, cerebral palsy, strokes, fibromyalgia, and injuries. Those who perform repetitive tasks throughout their workday such as typing, assembly line, even welding can greatly benefit.
Hypnosis Therapy ~ The use of hypnosis, trance states, suggestion, or altered states of consciousness to facilitate therapeutic goals, including learning and practicing new skills for alleviating symptoms or changing behavior. Hypnosis is not "Voo Do" or any kind of magic it simply helps an individual to relieve the mental, physical, emotional, spiritual aspect that hinders us from achieving our life expectations & goals.
