Thai massage combines the principles of acupressure whereby the Sen is stimulated, which is said to balance the energy system in the body. The passive stretching can also help to open up the body which can help increase flexibility and relieve tension within the joints and the muscles.
Swedish (Zen Out)
Swedish massage therapy is the most well-known and widely practiced type of therapeutic massage—and for good reason. This type of massage focuses on muscle relaxation, targeting superficial muscles (rather than the connective tissues targeted in deep-tissue massage) and increasing blood circulation.
Shiatsu is a non-invasive therapy that may help reduce stress and contribute to overall wellbeing. Proponents believe that it has both preventative and remedial effects. Shiatsu can be used in the treatment of a wide range of internal, musculoskeletal, and emotional conditions.
cupping therapy has been practiced since ancient times as a means to drain excess fluids and toxins, loosen adhesions and revitalize connective tissue, increase blood flow to skin and muscles, stimulate the peripheral nervous system, reduce pain, control high blood pressure and modulate the immune system.
Fascial therapy is a series of movements created to separate and organize the many connective tissue layers surrounding the muscles, joints, organs, and bones. It incorporates breath techniques and traction while taking joints to their available pain free ranges.
Deep tissue massage centers on realigning the deeper layers of connective and muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the tense areas, either following or going across the fiber's of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a gentle hands-on technique that uses a light touch to examine membranes and movement of the fluids in and around the central nervous system. Relieving tension in the central nervous system promotes a feeling of well-being by eliminating pain and boosting health and immunity.
Ayurvedic massage combines the 5,000-year-old Indian principles of Ayurveda—the science of life—and pressure points. This type of massage is designed to create balance among the mind, body, and spirit, and help the body heal itself. It’s sometimes referred to as an “oil massage” because it typically incorporates warm herb essential oils, as well as time-honored and non-traditional strokes and kneading that suit an individual’s needs.
There are many types of cupping, fire cupping is likely the most traditional, originating from Chinese medicine. It uses glass cups and a flame to create a vacuum against the skin to increase blood flow, circulate lymph and help release toxins. Incorporating these elements in your session is a great way to revitalize the body.
Reiki means "universal life energy." It's an ancient healing method that manipulates energy flow in the body. Reiki practitioners believe there is an energy force in and around the body. They believe that there is a flow of energy between the reiki practitioner and the receiver of the treatment.
Four handed massage (Tandem)
Therapeutic Tandem Massage consists of two therapists working in unison on one client. With the therapists working together, the client receives twice as much work as a one-on-one session.
