"Great Massage Promotes Healthy Living"®™

Acupressure
An ancient Asian healing art that uses the fingers to press key points on the surface of the skin to stimulate the body's immune system and create self-healing.

Aromatherapy
The use of essential oils for curative and rejuvenating effects to reduce stress and tension, refresh and invigorate the body, soothe emotions, and clear the mind. After an initial discussion with the client, specific essential oils are used in conjunction with other appropriate techniques, such as massage, acupressure, or reflexology. Used in oils, the essential oil is absorbed through the skin and into the body to affect physiological change. When inhaled the aroma directly affects the limbic area of the brain that is related to emotions and memories.

Chair Massage
A massage done while seated in a special chair specifically designed for relaxation. The client is completely dressed during the massage so no lotions are used. The massage can take from 5 to 30 minutes, focusing on the head, neck, shoulders, back, arms, and hands. Qualified massage therapists can come to your business for staff or guest massages upon request.

Cranial-Sacral Therapy
This specialized treatment approach focuses on a gentle, hands-on technique used to evaluate and enhance the function of the cranial-sacral system - the physiological body system comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord. Cranial-sacral Therapy enhances the body's natural healing processes to improve the operation of the central nervous system, dissipate the negative effects of stress, enhance health, and strengthen resistance to disease. Promoted by Dr. John Upledger, an osteopathic physician and researcher. Craniosacral therapy can help adults and children suffering from traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, central nervous system disorders, motor-coordination impairments and attention deficit disorders.

Cross-Fiber Friction / Professional Bodywork Strategies
Deep transverse friction, along the grain of the muscle, to restore mobility and release the fibers of the muscles and remove both toxins and deeply held patterns of tension.

Deep Tissue
A therapeutic massage that uses a slow deep pressure to help release trigger points in affected areas to release tension and return the muscle to its normal range of motion.

Hydro-Therapy
The water cure. A mode of treating diseases by the copious and frequent use of pure water, both internally and externally. Or a system of treating disease by baths and mineral waters.

Jin-Shin Jitsu
This form of acupressure was developed in Japan by Jiro Muraim, who mapped out a healing system based on his own body’s acupressure points and how they responded to ki, or energy, flow. A combination of acupressure points called safety energy locks is held with the fingers for a minute or more in an effort to harmonize body, mind and spirit.

Joint Mobilization
A therapeutic technique utilizing slow rhythmic movements and sustained stretches to help increase and restore normal range of motion to the joint and surrounding structures while assisting with muscle relaxation.

Lymphatic Drainage
A very slow, light touching, rhythmic massage that helps your body propels lymph forward throughout the lymphatic vessels to flush toxins, remove edema (swelling, which signifies lymphatic overload) pesticides and residual chemicals. As well as boost your immunity.

Myo-fascial Release
Massage-type techniques are employed to coax muscles in spasm to relax. Chronically tense muscles restrict blood flow and fatigue the body. By applying gentle pressure to connective tissues or fascia, normal alignment and function can be restored and chronic pain eliminated. Also, a technique that stretches and releases the fascia tissue, a continuous web-like sheath covering muscles and organs, to release restrictions due to previous injuries which causes severe pain. Developed in the late 1960s by John Barnes, myo-fascial release can treat neck and back pain, headaches and recurring sports injuries, among other conditions.

Neuromuscular Therapy
The utilization of static pressure on specific myo-fascial points to relieve pain. This technique manipulates the soft tissue of the body (muscles, tendons, and connective tissue) to balance the central nervous system.

Polarity Therapy
Polarity is a holistic therapy that combines therapeutic bodywork, dietary adjustments, counseling aimed at awareness and yoga-style exercises. It was developed by Randolf Stone, a chiropractor and osteopath who believed that illness or pain in the body was cured more readily when awareness and relaxation were included in treatments. He chose the term "polarity" to describe the basic nature of the electromagnetic force field of the body. Polarity is useful in the treatment of respiratory problems, tension and stress.

PNF Stretches
Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF) exercises involve a combination of alternating contraction and relaxation of the agonist and antagonist muscles. There is a 10 second pushing phase followed by a 10 second relaxing phase. This push-relax sequence should be repeated three times for maximum results. Research shows that proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation stretches are the most effective for increasing flexibility.

Potent Point Therapy
Potent Point holding is an acupressure technique that requires multiple acupressure points to be held at the same time by the fractioned for a duration of a period of time, designed to achieve emotional release and balance the flow of energy within the meridians.

Prenatal Massage
A gentle massage that helps ease emotional ups and downs as well as aid in the unique physical challenges of pregnancy. As well as promoting the health of the mother and baby.

Reflexology
Consists of firm pressure to specific points on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexology is based on the principle that reflexes the areas that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body, which helps aid relaxation, release of tension, and improve circulation, while promoting natural function of the body.

Reiki
Reiki is the Japanese word for "universal life" and is intended to promote physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. Reiki is believed to have evolved as a branch of Tibetan Buddhism. Reiki practitioners transmit energy by a light touch, placing their hands gently in specific positions on the body. It is reportedly effective for most emotional, physical and spiritual conditions, including some considered untreatable through conventional medicine.

Shiatsu

A Japanese massage meaning, "finger pressure," Shiatsu is a form of physical manipulation towards the growth of body, mind and spirit. Shiatsu is applied through a system of energy channels or "meridians" as used in acupuncture to cover a greater body area.

Soft Tissue Release
A specific compression and precise extension is administered in a systematic manner resulting in a profound opening effect on all micro trauma and scar tissue. Muscle memory is engaged and relief from pain starts immediately.

Sports Massage
Conditions athletes before and after activity to loosen and stretch muscles by using deep effleurage and petrissage. Which help speed recovery, lower stress, promote greater endurance and flexibility, prevent injuries, and enhance body awareness.

Hot Stone Therapy
The use of heated stones along with massage to melt away knots and tensions within the muscles. A therapeutic and relaxing experience.

Swedish Massage

A therapeutic massage consisting of continuous effleurage strokes, deep kneading and stretching to loosen tight muscles to reduce stress, stretch, and tone muscles, and help the body maintain homeostasis.

Trigger Points / Myotherapy
Consists of the movement of myo-fascial tissue through soft, deep contact with pressure points that help release areas of tension, chronically troubled areas, toxins, and trauma from connective tissue. Myotherapy is the diffusion of trigger points in muscles to retrain those muscles and relieve pain. Trigger points are usually found in tight bands of muscle that may radiate pain to other areas of the body. For instance, relieving a tense triggerpoint in the back could help ease pain in the shoulder or reduce headaches. Myotherapy is useful in the treatment of addictions, arthritis, backache, colic, Epstein-Barr, headaches, migraine, sinusitis, sports injuries, tendonitis and TMJ.

Thai Massage
Also called nuad bo-rarn, Thai massage is an ancient Siamese (Thai) bodywork system designed to unblock trapped energy and improve vitality by applying pressure along the meridians, called sen. Although Thai massage recognizes 72,000 sen, this system focuses on 10 major pathways. More than 2,500 years old, it makes up one of the four components of Thai medicine, which also include diet, medicine and herbal remedies, and spiritual or magical practices.
