Massage Therapy

Massage is one of the oldest, simplest forms of therapy and is a system of stroking, pressing and kneading different areas of the body to relieve pain, relax, stimulate, and tone the body. Massage does much more than create a pleasant sensation on the skin, it also works on the soft tissues(the muscles, tendons, and ligaments) to improve muscle tone. Although it largely affects those muscles just under the skin, its benefits may also reach the deeper layers of muscle and possibly even the organs themselves. Massage also stimulates blood circulation and assists the lymphatic system (which runs parallel to the circulatory system), improving the elimination of waste throughout the body.

Although a single massage will be enjoyable, the effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments will bring the most benefits. Regular massage can have the effect of strengthening and toning the entire body mechanism, and so help to prevent unnecessary strains and injuries that might otherwise occur due to excess tension and any resulting structural weaknesses. Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system-depending upon what is required by the individual-and thus help reduce fatigue, leaving the receiver with a feeling of replenished energy .At its best, massage has the potential to restore the individual physically, mentally and spiritually.

Sport Massage

This rapidly expanding field, popular among both professional athletes and fitness enthusiasts, focuses on the use of massage to assist training, prevent injury, and aid healing in case of soreness or injury. It is used both before and after exercise, as well as in the treatment of sports injuries such as sprains, strains, and tendonitis.

Deep Tissue Massage

This massage involves slow strokes and deep finger pressure on areas of the body suffering from chronic muscle tension or areas that simply ache or feel contracted. Deep tissue massage is especially effective with tense areas such as stiff necks or sore shoulders.

Acupressure

Acupressure is an ancient art of healing that balances the body's energy by applying pressure to specific points along energy channels. When these points are pressed, they release muscular tension and promote the circulation of blood and enhance the body's natural ability to heal.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger point therapy applies concentrated pressure to areas of chronic or severe pain in the muscles, called "trigger points" .With the proper pressure, duration and location, immediate release of tension and improved muscular functioning can occur.

Full Body Massage

It encourages healing by promoting the flow of blood and lymph, stimulating nerves, stretching and loosening muscles and connective tissue to keep them elastic. It can provide welcome relief from the symptoms of anxiety, tension, depression, insomnia, and stress, as well as back pain, headache, and some forms of chronic pain.
