Designed to remove severe tension, deep tissue massage is a technique used to relieve both muscles and connective tissue below the surface. It helps to improve range of motion and heal injuries below the surface. Times reflected are hands on.
Pregnancy massage focuses on addressing the special needs of expecting women. To prevent putting pressure on the abdomen special care is taken using pillows and side-lying postures. Special draping is used to prevent exposure. I prefer to only book 60 minute massages for pregnancy massage.
Massage oil or cream is used with smooth, gliding strokes. Swedish massage uses firm but gentle pressure to promote relaxation, ease muscle tension and create other health benefits. It is a classic massage that will ease your stress and allow you to slip into a calm state of relaxation.
This massaged is tailored to meet your specific needs by incorporating techniques from several modalities including deep tissue, stretching, traction, Swedish, cupping, and trigger point therapy.
Silicone massage cups are used by gliding over the skin. The negative pressure inside the cups separate the muscle, tendon, and ligament tissues below. Cupping can leave light to dark purplish marks on the skin which fade in 2-3 days. This should be taken into consideration if you are attending any events where your skin will be exposed.
Add essential oils to your session. Oils can be incorporated into the oil/lotion being used for your massage or added to the diffuser to be released into the air.
Intra Oral Massage
Intra oral massage include the external jaw, neck, shoulders, and inside the mouth. Intra Oral massage is great for those suffering from TMJ Syndrome/Dysfunction (Temporal Mandibular Joint).
Heated Himalayan salt stones are incorporated into the massage techniques to aid in relaxation and further break through muscle tension.
