Massage is one of the oldest therapies in the world. In one form or other, every culture in the world has used massage.
Touch is a very basic human instinct. Touch helps to relax the body, calm the mind and encourage healing and a sense of well-being.
Massage affects all of the systems in the body. It helps boost self-esteem, increase mental clarity and may release emotional blocks. A massage is both relaxing and refreshing and helps to restore harmony between the mind, body and spirit.
Swedish massage is a relaxing massage using rhythmic strokes. This massage soothes and relaxes the body. Blood and lymph circulation gets a boost and the nervous system is calmed. It helps create greater flexibility and suppleness in the muscles and helps to release tension and break up adhesions.
Hot Bamboo Massage incorporates heat with bamboo tools. The bamboo tools used makes the kneading/rolling strokes very effective. Bamboo allows the therapist to work deeper into the layer of muscles, while relaxing the tension in those muscles. The combination of heat and the relaxing strokes of the bamboo have most people feeling lighter and very relaxed.
This treatment is good for softening those tight, achy muscles in the back. The treatment starts with a hot ginger fomentation placed on the back followed by a relaxing back massage.
Reflexology is applying pressure to certain reflex points in the feet which is believed to affect corresponding organs, glands and other parts of the body. The use of hot stones adds relaxing heat to the treatment.
