Sports Massage

20 Nov 2018
Sports Massage

The techniques with this massage are similar to those used in both Swedish and deep tissue massages, but the focus is in the special needs of an athlete. This type of massage can be effective for both the professional athlete as well as the weekender. Sports massage can incorporate pre-event massage that works on warming up the muscles as well as reducing stress that goes before a competition. Post-event massage aids in speed recovery after an intense physical workout, and eliminate the wastes from the body. This technique of massage can be greatly enhanced by drinking plenty of water after workouts or competition.

Ashiatsu Barefoot Massage

20 Nov 2018

Ashiatsu is a form of barefoot massage where the therapist uses their feet to provide a deep, luxurious pain-free massage. Dating as far back as the 12th century, Ashiatsu originates from Asia and India. It is wonderful for athletes or clients with stressful lives. Ashiatsu massage is unique in its ability to maintain constant, even pressure to the entire body. It provides clients with deep pressure without the bruising or residual soreness associated with some deep tissue techniques. Deeply relaxing, Ashiatsu provides longer-lasting effects with increased postural alignment and increased circulation. Due to the pressure associated with Ashiatsu, please discuss your complete health history with your therapist. We advise against.

Aromatherapy Massage

Aromatherapy body massage is one of the most enjoyable ways to keep the mind and body healthy. Our massage therapy clients receive the maximum aromatherapy benefits when a body massage is combined with Aromatherapy. Incorporating highly effective, naturally-extracted herbal or floral plant essential oils into the massage oil or lotion, the healing properties of the aromatherapy oils are released during the body massage. The Aromatherapy works by releasing these healing properties directly into the body though the massage. The massage techniques used by the therapist for aromatherapy body massage usually combine Japanese Shiatsu massage therapy and Swedish massage techniques , so as to meet the client’s needs to release stress.

The Brain & Craniosacral Therapy

The Brain & Craniosacral Therapy

Our brain is such a fascinating complex organ. It is that part of us that holds our consciousness, allows us to perceive pleasure and pain, keeps all our bodily functions in order, and often is “out of sight out of mind”. Our thoughts are often linked to what we can see directly in front of us and within reach. Fortunately, this delicate and extremely important organ is located within the lock box of our skull. That doesn’t mean it is out of reach of injury.   I am grateful for the publicity and growing body of knowledge surrounding concussive brain injuries in our youth and in adults. Brain health is.
