Relaxation massage is, in a nutshell, a dream come true: a flowing, smooth experience that brings body and mind into adjustment through long, effleurage strokes and gentle pressure. It’s ideal for anyone, whether you’re an athlete, an office worker, or someone that simply wants to indulge their bodies with an amazing experience. With a relaxation massage, you will find your body relieved of muscle tension, enjoy an improved circulation and range of movement. This is one of the most complete and indulgent massages you can offer yourselves!
Have you made peace with chronic pain and a restricted range of motion? You shouldn’t! The ‘Deep tissue’ massage is ideal for specific areas of tension, for dealing with chronic pain and for increasing range of motion. Get rid of those stubborn knots that you thought will follow you forever. With slow, deliberate strokes that focus pressure on layers of tissues deep under your skin, our massage works those kinks out and you emerge into daylight as a new person! You can complement this treatment with a ‘Trigger Point’ massage: trigger points are sore, painful spots—also called knots—found in muscles. These knots are sensitive and when pressed, they cause pain that radiates through your body. A ‘Trigger Point’ massage helps work out those knots and reduce the pain associated with them.
Cupping is an ancient technique that increases blood circulation to specific spots on your body. This relieves muscle tension, improves overall blood flow and promotes cell repair. Have you noticed mysterious round marks on the backs of more and more celebrities lately? That’s because the celebrity world has gotten wise to cupping therapy. But what is it? Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing cups on the skin to create suction. This suction is thought to improve the flow of energy in the body and facilitate healing. Cupping seems to have been around forever, as it dates back to Eber’s papyrus (1550 B.C.) in Ancient Egypt. Also, long before your standard celebrity tried cupping, Hippocrates, often referred to as the “father” of medicine, compiled descriptions of cupping techniques. And that’s probably the only sentence that will ever combine ‘celebrities’ with ‘Hippocrates’, so you know we’re onto something really special!
Sports massage is what you need if you regularly engage in physical activity. This type of massage manipulates the soft tissue, i.e. the connective tissue that has not hardened into bone and cartilage. That would be your skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia (don’t ask!). Sports massage will correct any problems, trauma and imbalances you might have caused with repetitive and strenuous exercise. A sports massage, either before and/or after exercise may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury–in other words, it will make your time exercising more effective and less painful!
