Deep Tissue Massage reaches deeper layers of muscles. It is used to break down knots and relieve pressure points throughout the body. This massage is beneficial for athletes, those who sit for long periods of time and for rehabilitation of injuries and pre and post surgeries.
Hot Stone Massage is often paired with Swedish Massage or Remedial Massage. Stones are heated and used with oils to sooth, warm and massage the muscles. This allows the muscles to relax, release tension and stress allowing for a better result from the massage.
Massage Cupping is the combination of massage movements and negative pressure with the use of a suction device on the skin. A cup is positioned at the area to be treated and, depending on the type of cups being used; a vacuum is created within the cup to draw the skin and underlying tissue into the cup. The suction and negative pressure provided by cupping can loosen muscles, freeing up the facia, encouraging blood flow and sedate the nervous system. Cupping is used to relieve back and neck pains, stiff muscles, anxiety, fatigue, migraines, rheumatism and even cellulite.
Swedish Massage is to melt away muscle tension and increase the blood flow to your heart. Swedish Massage is extremely therapeutic as it decreases muscle toxins, increases oxygen levels in the blood and improves flexibility in the body.
