Swedish Massage is the basis for a therapeutic bodywork. It combines the use of oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as efflerage (long, relaxing strokes) and petressage (short, stimulating strokes) to help the body improve its circulation; while reaching a relaxed state. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility. My Swedish Massage includes facial massage and passive body stretches. Also Available in 90 minute session at $110.00.
Deep Tissue Massage is a form of bodywork that aims to relieve tension in the deeper layers of tissue in the body. Deep Tissue Massage is a highly effective method for releasing chronic stress areas due to misalignment, repetitive motions, and past lingering injuries. Due to the nature of the deep tissue work, open communication during the session is crucial to make sure you don't get uncomfortable. Keep in mind that soreness is pretty common after the treatment, and that plenty of water should be ingested prior to and following the massage to aid with the flushing and removal of toxins that will have been released from the deep tissue during the session.
Deep Tissue Massage is recommended for trouble spots in your body; such as a neck or back issue. You can expect that (or those) areas to receive Deep Tissue Work, while the rest of your body receives a more relaxing treatment during a longer session.
Swedish Relaxation Massage includes upper torso, chest/breast and abdominal massage.
Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than most other forms of massage therapy. It's also called Thai Yoga massage, because I use my hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you through a series of yoga-like postures and stretches. No oil is applied, so you are fully dressed during the session. The session is performed on a mat on the floor. A single Thai massage session will help you release stress and relieve pain, and help you function more effectively at work and home. Be sure to wear comfortable loose clothing.
This is an add on service to your massage only.
