Investing in massage is an investment in your health.

Swedish Massage

60 min. or 120 min.

This is the Modality that comes to mind when most people think of massage. One of the primary goals of Swedish massage is to relax the entire body. This is by applying firm pressure, firm kneading, and stretching among other things. Besides relaxing the entire body Swedish massage increases the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

A study published in the New York times, done by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine showed that patients who received one massage a week lasting at least fifteen minutes had an increase in the number of lymphocytes, white blood cells that are part of the immune system, and a boost in the immune cells that help fight colds and the flu. That is one of the many reasons massage is an important part of total body care. 

 

Reflexology

30 min. or 60 min. 

Reflexology is pressure applied to area on the feet and hands that correspond with other areas and organs of the body. By applying Pressure to these reflex points there is a beneficial effect on the organs and person's general health. A scientific explanation is that the pressure may send signals that balance the nervous system or release chemicals such as endorphins that reduce pain and cause the corresponding area to have a change of some sort for the better. A Reflexology treatment is done just on the hands and feet, firm pressure on reflex points as well as some Swedish massage techniques and some range of motion.

 

Reiki 

60 min.

While Reiki is not a religion, The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy." Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. Reiki is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness. Reiki is an energy technique done with a transfer of energy using ancient techniques some with the hands on the body but mostly with the hands over the body.

 

Hot Stone 

90 min.

Have you ever watched a hot knife go through a stick of butter? The butter just melts pooling onto the dish. How would you like to be so relaxed you feel like melted butter?

Hot stones melt away tension, ease muscle stiffness and increase circulation and metabolism. By using the hot stones we are able to access the deeper muscle layers. Hot stone therapy is performed by placing the hot and sometimes cold stones on key spots on the body allowing those muscles to relax, while the therapist uses stones in her hands to do the actual massage. Hot stones treatments will benefit anyone but are especially beneficial for people suffering from fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and most other chronic conditions.
