Swedish Massage

Soothing, fluid, continuous strokes of varying depths ranging from superficial to deep. The techniques are designed to encourage the relaxation of muscle groups by increasing circulation and decreasing associated tension. Incorporates joint motion and stretching to increase rehabilitative effects when addressing soft tissue injury.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial release uses greater depth – with no oil – to help promote the release of deeper body structures. Combining tissue torquing and myotonic stretching, this type of massage is suitable for treating restrictive tissue tension. Coupled with Swedish massage, myofascial techniques enhance the intensity of the treatment.

Reiki Level I

The word “Reiki”is made up of two separate Japanese characters. “Rei” contains a variety of meanings such as spirit, soul, sacred and respect. “Ki” is the energy or life force. Reiki can be incorporated into either of the above treatments, using both hands on techniques, and techniques to affect the energy field surrounding the body. Reiki aims to eliminate negative energy and re-direct positive energy to areas where it will be most beneficial.
