"classic massage" This type of massage uses light to firm pressure, with long, gliding strokes to provide a deeply relaxing experience. Swedish Massage increases circulation, eases muscle tension, flushes lactic acid (soreness) from tired muscles, and dissolves muscles tension. Swedish Massage can deepen the breath and soften the skin. Each massage includes hot towels & aromatherapy.
Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, which can improve overall blood flow and promote cell repair. It may also help form new pathways for oxygen and hydration to replenish soft tissue.
Instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization (IASTM) intentionally micro-traumatizes soft-tissue using tools in a specific region to bring heat and heal the area.
Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue. The gentle, noninvasive approach of prenatal massage can ease discomfort associated with pregnancy, help the mother-to-be prepare for labor and give her nurturing emotional support.
