Swedish Massage

Swedish Massage refers to a collection of techniques designed primarily to relax muscles. Swedish Massage is also used to increase circulation, remove metabolic waste products, help the recipient obtain a feeling of connectedness, and a better awareness of their body. Swedish Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain by flushing the tissue of lactic and uric acids and other metabolic wastes. It improves circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons by keeping them supple.

Swedish Massage stimulates the skin and nervous system while relaxing the nerves. As it can help reduce emotional and physical stress, it is often recommended as part of a regular program for stress management.

(FYI: Swedish is a proper name. It is not a reference to the country Sweden.)

CranioSacral Therapy

CranioSacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and treating the body through the CranioSacral system. The CranioSacral system is made up of membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.

A licensed healthcare practitioner performs therapy on the fully clothed body. The practitioner uses a soft touch to release restrictions in the CranioSacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.

CranioSacral Therapy complements the body's natural healing process, whether compromised through illness, injury, or dysfunction. It is increasingly used as a preventative health measure as well as for its ability to bolster resistance to disease. CranioSacral therapy is effective for a wide range of medical problems including:

* Chronic neck and back pain
* Stress and tension-related problems
* Fibromyalgia and other connective-tissue disorders
* Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ)
* Post-surgical dysfunctions

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep Tissue Massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct pressure applied across the grain of the muscles. It uses a combination of massage techniques that get deeper into the tissue structure of muscle and fascia. Techniques employing breath and movement are also used for releasing muscular congestion.

Reflexology

Reflexology works on the premise that the body is reflected in the hands, feet and ears. Practitioners manipulate specific points in order to move energy more efficiently through the body. This increases the health and well-being of these specific areas and of the body as a whole. Reflexology is most often practiced on the feet. In addition to addressing various internal ailments, reflexology is also great for the feet themselves and terrific for stress reduction and relaxation.

Reiki

Reiki Massage is believed to have begun in Tibet thousands of years ago. It was introduced to the Western world around the 1970’s. Reiki Massage practitioners channel energy in a particular pattern to heal and harmonize. Unlike other healing therapies based on the premise of a human energy field, Reiki Massage seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced.

The effects of Reiki Massage are various. Reiki Massage energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, detoxifies the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body.

Lymph Meridian Treatment

Lymph massage reduces swelling and clears the lymphatic system so that lymph fluid can move freely through the body. By bringing the lymph system and the organs into balance, this massage allows the organs to drain toxins that can be flushed through the lymph system thereby reducing swelling and promoting healthy immune function. Using pure medicinal Chinese oils from Yangtze Biotechnology, grown on a privately owned mountain in Taiwan to insure their potency, the oils are mixed to meet your specific needs. A lymph-meridian treatment will promote your general well being and leave you feeling refreshed and energized.

Contraindications: Inflammations, infections, tumors, clotting issues, heart disease.
