- The basic massage or what most people think of. The goal is to relax the entire body and also helps with increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.
- Similar to Swedish but targets knots and releases muscle tension. It also helps to reduce inflammation and eliminate scar tissue. This massage focuses on the deepest layers of the muscle tissue, tendons, and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones, and joints). This is a little more intense than a swedish because I use deep finger pressure, elbows, forearms, knuckles. It may be slightly uncomfortable and could cause soreness that might last for a couple of days before resulting in the desired relaxation and pain relief.
- 30 min massage; working on hands and feet, targets specific points with stretching, moving hands and feet, and applying pressure on reflex areas that correspond to specific organs and other parts of the body send signals to the brain and balance the nervous system. Endorphins are released throughout the entire body, reducing stress, and returning the body to equilibrium. It has also been known to relieve tension headaches, arthritis, digestive issues, and back pain.
- This is great for athletes, if you work out and are active, or if you just need a good stretching. There is less massage that is replaced with active and passive stretching and also a variety of strokes that flush toxins from the muscles in order to help increase muscle flexibility reducing muscle and joint stiffness, strengthening specific muscle groups, releasing tension, and reducing swelling and also muscle fatigue. This will also help to prevent injury and aid in muscle recovery.
- You should be out of your first trimester before receiving this massage and get an approval from your doctor before your appointment. It provides gentle relief from some of the tensions that build up during pregnancy. It also helps to relieve pain from varicosities, enhance sleep, prepare pelvic muscles for birth process, relieve leg cramps, alleviate backaches, relieve headaches, reduce swelling, reduce fatigue, and promote energy, stimulates lymphatic system, increasing immunity, removal of excess toxins, while also stabilizing hormonal levels, and balancing the glandular system. Hormonal changes can cause depression and anxiety during pregnancy, so a massage would give you some relief. This is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote your overall general well-being.
- A 30 minute massage; helps relieve intense pain caused by migraines, sinuses, and allergies. Focus is on the scalp, jaw, temples, around the eyes, under cheek bone, and base of neck.
