Massage is to work and act on the body with pressure. Massage techniques are commonly applied with hands, fingers, elbows, knees, forearms, feet, or a device. The purpose of massage is generally for the treatment of body stress or pain.
Reflexology and Foot Massage, although it's often combined with massage, is technically not a form of massage. It's a separate practice that applies pressure to reflex zones on your feet, hands or outer ears to affect your entire body.
Hot Stone Massage is a form of body work that involves the application of heated stones (thermo therapy) to the body within the context of a therapeutic massage . Round, smooth stones are heated to luxurious warmth, oiled and used in the palm of the hands to massage the body. Heat penetrates deeply, prompting profound relaxation, increased detoxification, and relief of long-standing muscular tension, stress and fatigue.
Couples massage is generally offered in a private room on side-by-side massag etables with two therapists who work on each individual at the same time.
Soothing warm oils glide across your skin as your therapist removes the day's stress. Your body relaxes under the enhanced relaxation and reduced stress adding oil to your massage provides. The heated oil allows your therapist to work the deeper layers of muscle tissue, releasing chronic patterns of tension in the body through deep finger pressure and slow firm strokes on targeted areas. Enabled to work deeper, the massage enhances blood supply to problem spots, helps diminish pain and improve overall health.
