ZEN SHIATSU MASSAGE
Zen Shiatsu aims to balance the flow of Chi (universal energy) within the body. It is based on the traditional Chinese acupuncture meridians and was created by Shizuto Masanuga. It consists of various forms of two handed compressions, thumb techniques along the acupuncture meridians, as well as light stretches. Emphasis is placed on moving the flow of Chi from the center of the body out through the limbs.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE (MFR) & NEUROMUSCULAR MASSAGE
-DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
MFR and Neuromuscular massage is a form of deep tissue massage utilizing a variety of techniques to address areas of chronic pain, tension or injury. Work is directed at the fascial layers (connective tissue surrounding muscles and bones) of the body. Adhesions (those tight spots you feel in your neck, back and shoulders) are treated utilizing trigger point therapy as well as muscle energy techniques. Ideal for disrupting chronic tension and pain patterns within the body, re-setting muscle proprioception, increasing muscle length and improving range of motion. If you suffer from chronic pain, repetitive motion injuries (carpal tunnel and tennis elbow or sciatica, piriformis syndrome, plantar fasciitis & thoracic outlet syndrome).
A form of medical massage designed to assess and address muscular and skeletal problems as a result of overuse, injury, poor posture, and general compensation patterns. Sessions consist of postural assessment, muscle testing, and various massage techniques designed to address specific concerns (i.e. scoliosis, TMJ, frozen shoulder). Treatment is often coordinated with other medical professionals including chiropractors, orthopedists and acupuncturists. This is not a relaxation massage and may or may not be a full body massage depending on the type of treatment needed.
HAND AND FOOT MASSAGE
Relax and unwind with a 30 minute foot massage or a 45 minute foot and hand massage. This massage focuses on the muscles, tendons and fascia of the feet, ankles and hands providing relief from neuropathy, arthritis, plantar fasciitis, everyday aches, pains ... and stress. Massage is provided using a variety of massage and reflexology techniques (from a wide variety of traditions), including the use of tools for deeper, specific work within your comfort zone to release the large and small muscles and tendons of the feet and hands. Makes a great gift.
Upper body cupping can be added to your massage session or provided as a stand alone service. Cupping consists of plastic vacuum cups that are placed along areas of severe tension or scar tissue in order to lift and twist the fascia and force blood into the stagnant area. Cupping is safe for most individuals except those on blood thinners.
