Massage Service Descriptions
Muscles, Systems, and More!
Don't overlook massage as a tool to access many different body systems. It's amazing for muscles, but offers much much more!!!
Therapeutic Massage is your go to for muscle pain, tightness and general postural strains. While we do not offer many of the techniques our therapists know as separate services to book, reflexology accesses organ health, myofascial massage changes your posture, sports massage gets you prepped for activity, and the list goes on. Any of these specific techniques that your therapist knows can be a part of our Therapeutic Massage
Lymphatic Massage moves stagnant fluids and restores balance to the soup every cell of your body lives in. Ayurvedic philosophy places an extreme importance on the lymph system for balancing all disease pathways.
Emotional Health, Intuition, and the Subtle Body
This area of affect is one of the true gifts of massage; allowing us to access the energetic part of our being for health.
Guna Massages move life force energy and often create opportunities to witness your own mental and emotional reactions to being touched. This puts you in touch with memories, your critical filter and self identity where you can process deeply held emotions, memories and internal conflicts between different levels of your own consciousness.
Abhyanga uses rhythm and flow to balance primary energetic patterns. This balancing can reduce anger, fear, stubbornness and much more.
Ask your therapist if they do Reflexology or Craniosacral Techniques in their Therapeutic Massage.
- Reflexology taps into subtle connections to access the whole being from your feet.
- Craniosacral Massages balance the "primary pulse." We all know of our heartbeat, but the craniosacral pulse carries information from the deepest levels of our consciousness in the same way that blood carries oxygen to every cell of our body.
Calm Your Mind
Believe it or not, massage services have a great deal of benefit for mental health, focus and stability.
Abhyanga and Guna Massage are filled with long connecting strokes that connect and reintegrate you, giving you a strong sense of groundedness, security and stability.
Swedish Relaxation massage gives deep rest. That gentle distracting massage stroke isn't JUST for pleasure and pampering. It distracts your mind from cares and worries allowing you to completely disengage from your stressful thoughts and habit patterns. This delectable massage provides a wonderful opportunity for regenerative mental rest.
The crown jewel of these (see what we did there?) would be Craniosacral Therapy. This massage focuses strongly on relieving central nervous system tension, creating even flow of cerebrospinal fluid throughout the entire skull and spine, and cleansing the lymph throughout the brain. Some of our therapists offer Craniosacral techniques in their Therapeutic or Guna Massages.
Massage Integrates You And
Integrates With Other Therapies
Even though we might only want to use massage for its power of relieving a muscle spasm, it absolutely helps to balance your other layers of being as well. All massages help physical, mental and emotional health no matter how focused they are.
As powerful as massage is, we fully appreciate that it alone cannot satisfy every need. Integrating massage into a larger program of service types, wellness lifestyle activities, and products is your most potent opportunity to truly achieving health and happiness.
