Investing in massage is an investment in your health
Known as seated massage, chair massage, or on-site massage, this technique involves the use of a specially designed massage chair in which the client sits comfortably. Seated massage includes bodywork and Swedish massage techniques, provided to the fully clothed client in a variety of settings, including businesses, airports, and street fairs.
HOT STONE THERAPY
Basalt stones, black volcanic rocks, of various sizes which are smooth and absorb and retain heat well, are used to promote warming, relaxation, and release of muscle tissue.
Very similar to a Swedish massage, using gentle, smooth, gliding stokes at a slower pace and with lighter pressure. The purpose is to relax rather than work serious knots, or adhesions out of the muscles, and won't be pushing the client's pain threshold. This massage is very calming to the nervous system, and promotes a sense of well-being. Sometimes clients even fall asleep during a relaxation massage. It also improves circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system which carries away waste products.
One of the most commonly taught and well-known massage techniques, Swedish massage is a vigorous system of treatment designed to energize the body by stimulating circulation. Five basic strokes, all flowing toward the heart, are used to manipulate the soft tissues of the body. The disrobed client is covered by a sheet, with only the area being worked on exposed. Therapists use a combination of kneading, rolling, vibrational, percussive, and tapping movements, with the application of oil, to reduce friction on the skin. The many benefits of Swedish massage may include generalized relaxation, dissolution of scar tissue adhesions, and improved circulation, which may speed healing and reduce swelling from injury.
A Therapeutic massage ia a little more intense than those listed above. This one addresses those knots and and stiffness in order to get restored range of motion where there may be restrictions. The work is concentrated on an area or two (neck/shoulder, back/hip etc.) The client participates more with the therapist instead of going to sleep.
