Hot Stone Massage
A massage therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body, during this relaxing and therapeutic massage treatment. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly.
Using techniques similar to Swedish massage, this technique is particularly effective in the treatment of sciatica, bursitis, TMJ, lower back, neck and muscle strains.
Viewing the foot as a microcosm of the entire body, our trained therapists use thumbs and fingers to stimulate specific pressure points in the feet. This treatment promotes overall well-being and releases blocked energy throughout the body.
Thai massage incorporates the application of pressure, stretching, joint range of motion techniques and work along energy channels. Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions and the client remains clothed during a treatment, lying on firm mattress on the floor in our Yoga studio. This allows the therapist to rhythmically compress, stretch, pull and rock the entire body. Benefits of Thai massage include increased flexibility, muscle and joint tension release and general relaxation.
Getting its name from the Japanese words "ashi" (foot) and "atsu" (pressure), Ashiatsu massage is an ancient type of Asian bodywork that is done with the massage therapist's feet. This method of deep tissue barefoot Swedish massage uses an overhead support system: the massage therapist holds onto parallel bars that hang from the ceiling, allowing gravity - and the therapist's body weight - to penetrate below the client's superficial layers of tissue, delivering an extra deep massage. The use of the therapist's feet delivers continuous deep tissue pressure and covers much larger areas at one time verse the use of hands. Ashiatsu massage is much deeper than the common Swedish massage and even deeper than a deep tissue massage.
