TREATMENTS

*SWEDISH

- a classic full body massage with coconut oil which helps releasing tight muscles, circulating the blood and reducing tension.

the swedish massage is not about focusing in certain groups of muscles but more in general energy's work on the whole body.

the swedish massage is the most basic massage and a foundation to all others(sports/deep tissue..)

based on the western concepts of anatomy and physiology as opposed to energy work on meridians or sen lines that are the focus in asian massage systems. therapists utilize this type of massage to stimulate circulation,flush the circulatory system,release tight muscles,restore range of motion,and to relieve pain.

if its a first time or you don't get a massage often, a swedish massage is a good fit for beginners. most people get a 60 minutes but 75 or 90 minutes is more recommended and will give more time to work the muscle tissue and achieve better results. swedish massage can be slow and gentle or vigorous and bracing.it depend's on the patient personal need.

if you want a deeper work and can tolerate more pressure to get relief from chronic pain its better to book a deep tissue massage which is another form of swedish massage.if you have chronic pain it will likely take a series of massages to make it better.

* the treatment is being held on a massage table. 60/75/90 minutes. possible to add acupuncture/etheric oil's/hot cups

*AROMATHERAPY 

aromatherapy massage is a swedish massage therapy using massage base oil or a lotion that contains essential oils(highly concentrated plants oil)

during aromatherapy massage you inhale these essential oils molecules and absorb them trough your skin.they are promoting beneficial changes in your mind and body by affecting the limbic system,a region in the brain that influence the nervous system.

each of the different oils has his own physical and mental benefits. some calm and relaxing while others energize.

  • Calming: chamomile, lavender, and geranium oil
  • Uplifting: ylang-ylang, clary sage, rose, and neroli oil
  • Energizing: rosemary oil
  • Decongesting: eucalyptus, pine, and tea tree oil

How the Oils are chosen and blended

In choosing the oils for an aromatherapy massage,i  generally creates a synergistic blend from number of  oils which are then added to a carrier oil. A synergistic blend means that when a particular set of oils are combined together, they enhance each other’s properties, and make a pleasing scent. for example A blend of Lavender and Ylang Ylang can be more effective in normalising blood pressure than either of the oils used on their own.

The Benefits of Massage

During aromatherapy massage, the skin is warmed and the blood drawn to the surface, increasing circulation and encouraging the elimination of toxins from the body, which has the consequence of speeding up recovery time from any illness or injury. The manipulation of the muscles continues the process, whilst at the same time releasing tense knotted muscles by dispersing the build up of lactic acid which often occurs after exercise.

As the circulation increases, the oils are absorbed through the skin and carried round the body, allowing their healing effects to permeate to all the major body organs.usually the massage will be slow and gentle and living one with in a deep relaxation state.it is much recommended to anxiety or stress issue's.

 * DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE


Deep tissue massage is aimed at the deeper tissue structures of the muscle and fascia, also called connective tissue.deep tissue massage uses many of the same movements and techniques as swedish massage, but the pressure will generally be more intense. It is also a more focused type of massage, as i works to release chronic muscle tension or "knots" as well on triger points.

Most deep tissue massages normally focus on major muscle groups — such as the neck or lower back — along with joints and tendons that are susceptible to straining or injuries. Certain areas of the body that tend to tense up in times of stress, including the shoulders, neck and hips, can often benefit the most from this type of deep manipulation. Many people consider “sports massages” to be a form of deep tissue massage, which involves physical treatment primarily to neuromusculoskeletal systems to treat pain and disability, improve muscle recovery and joint mobilization, and prevent injuries.

 The massage shouldn't hurt, but it's likely to be a bit more uncomfortable than a classic swedish massage. You should always feel free to speak up if the pressure is too much for you.  If the pressure is more than you can comfortably take, you might unconsciously tense up, guarding your body from pain.  This makes it harder for the therapist to achieve results.

*ZEN-SHIATSU

shiatsu its a japanese form of healing based on chinese philosophy and medicine principles.

shiatsu deals with the meridians,lines of energy that are the first thing that is created in our body by the chinese belief.

the different meridians are connected to different organs in the body and cary curtain physical/energetic/mental responsibility. the only major symptom is stagnation of chi which is the energy that assembles everything. the purpose will be to find the block and move the chi.

Shiatsu massage therapy relies on the use the fingers, thumbs and palm,forearm,knees to apply pressure to various areas of the body’s surface to help heal common ailments and conditions, and correct imbalances in the body. Pressure applied to points on the body promotes energy flow and corrects disharmonies throughout the patient's body. In addition to being a deeply relaxing experience, Shiatsu helps relieve stress, treat pain and illness, and contributes to a patient's overall health and wellbeing.

Shiatsu regulates the automatic nervous system activity and stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems. Poor posture, joint problems, sprains, arthritis, sciatica, acute and chronic neck and back pain, sinusitis, and bronchitis are treatable with Shiatsu.

Shiatsu works to improve overall health by affecting the internal energy system. Therapy often results in increased range of motion and improved coordination. Used as either a primary or complementary therapy, Shiatsu combines assisted-stretching techniques and acupressure to restore muscle and bone structure. 

Shiatsu massage therapy uses techniques similar to those found in other treatment methods such as osteopathy, lymphatic drainage and physiotherapy. However, Shiatsu practitioners attribute physical health conditions and diseases to blockages and imbalances in the energy flow throughout the body, which differentiates its diagnosis and treatment from other massage therapy modalities.
