AromatherapyAroma and the olfactory system of the body in conjunction with essential oils theoretically treats conditions ranging from stimulating circulation to treating depression. Different herbs have different healing qualities. Basil might be used to treat a migraine, where Oregano might be used to cure an infection. The scent of the oils can be diffused into the air while a client is receiving a massage as an example of application.
Deep Tissue MassageDeep tissue massage focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. The movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain. Some soreness may occur after the massage.
Hawaiian Lomi-LomiThis means “rub rub” in Hawaiian. This modality uses a type of cross-fiber friction across soft tissue and muscle. Lomi Lomi uses long continuous strokes and a relaxing touch. The moves are similar to Swedish massage using broad, fluid strokes with both hands, forearm and elbows for pressure.
Hot Stone MassageHot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones, either as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body while they massage other parts of the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
Pregnancy MassagePregnancy massage is specifically tailored for the expectant mother’s needs. It is also called pre-natal massage. The mother’s body must be properly positioned and supported during the massage, using pillows and padding. Proper positioning ensures comfort and safety for the mother and baby.
Reflexology TreatmentReflexology is an alternative therapeutic treatment based on the idea that the body has an inner network of reflex points that connect to other organs. The reflex points that are targeted are in the hands, feet and ears, but are connected to body systems and internal organs, from the lymphatic system to the bladder. In a reflexology treatment session, pressure is applied to certain sections of feet, hands or other areas. As a result of the body’s natural reflex zones, the correlating body system or organs benefit from the pressure.
ShiatsuShiatsu means “finger pressure”. Similar to acupressure, this technique incorporates the pressure of fingers, palms, elbows, knees and feet. Shiatsu is used to treat a variety of problems and conditions including muscle cramps, headaches, chronic pain, digestive problems and more. Treatments stimulate blood, circulation and lymphatic flow and is believed to provide the body with greater resistance to disease.
Swedish MassageOtherwise known as “classic massage” used to support the long-term health and rehabilitative care of individuals and athletes. Firm but gentle pressure is used with long flowing movements for total relaxation. Increased circulation and relief of muscle tension are results of this massage.
Thai MassageBased on Ayurveda and Yoga, Thai massage originated in India and is believed to be one of the oldest known massages. The therapist uses hands, knees, legs and feet to place the receiver into yoga like positions and stretches. Techniques allow external body stimulation to produce internal effects within the body. Benefits include relaxation, increased energy, increased flexibility, greater range of motion and increased circulation.
