Massage and Body Work
Within and surrounding your body is a field of energy. The energy of your body plays an important role in your daily life. As you go about your day, your energy field is constantly reflecting, absorbing, projecting and even deflecting the energy of everything around you. From the energy of other people to the energy of electromagnetic fields and even the energy of conversations and emotional events, your energy field is in a constant state of movement and change. That constant state of movement can eventually have an effect on your energy field, causing imbalances and “sticky points” where experiences get stuck. Points in your energy field can be weak or strong, vibrant or lethargic and even sticky or smooth.
Clearing, re-energizing, empowering, balancing and calming your energy field is a really powerful, proven path to healing.
What to expect in a Shiatsu treatment
Each session lasts approximately one hour.
You remain fully clothed at all times. The session takes place on a padded mat at floor level.
The whole body is treated by using finger or palm pressure or sometimes, if needed, using knees, elbows and feet.
Shiatsu can involve rotation and stretches of joints and limbs.
Following Shiatsu, due to the body’s natural healing process, there can be a feeling of increased vitality and you may feel invigorated yet relaxed. To experience the full benefits you may wish to rest for an hour or two after having received Shiatsu
Swedish massage is a classic and more gentle massage aiming to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. It can be very helpful for people who hold a lot of tension in their lower back, neck and shoulders.
Some proven benefits of Swedish massage are pain management, increased blood flow, rehabilitation for muscle injuries, increased flexibility, and reduced stress. With the relaxation of Swedish massage, cortisol levels drop, which allows the immune system to grow stronger.
During a deep tissue massage, pressure will be used to relieve tension from the deepest layers of your muscles and connective tissues. This massage is excellent for reducing pain, rehabilitating injured muscles, reducing arthritis symptoms and more.
Lymphatic massage is a technique used to stimulate the flow of lymph, to relieve swelling and improve health. Because the lymphatic system plays a central role in the body's immune system, and because this massage helps to alleviate swelling, this form of massage can alleviate symptoms of a variety of conditions including fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, menopause, and more.
hot stone massage
During a hot stone massage, flat, heated stones are placed on specific parts of the body. The stones are usually made of basalt, a type of volcanic rock that retains heat. The stones are also used to massage the body.
Heat eases muscle tension and pain, increases blood flow and may also reduce muscle spasms. Anyone experiencing muscle tension, pain, insomnia or stress may benefit from this massage.
Medical Massage is an excellent treatment for chronic pain relief or recovery from an injury.
Medical massage can significantly improve chronic or acute conditions such as but not limited to back pain, neck pain, headaches, shoulder pain, hip pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, scoliosis, fibromyalgia, muscular sprain and strain, plantar fasciitis, frozen shoulder, insomnia, and pre or post surgeries. Medical massage is commonly recommended for pain management, stress relief and anxiety driven physical symptoms.
