Swedish massage is a whole-body therapeutic massage treatment that works the soft tissues and muscles to help restore health - creating a calming and balancing effect on the nervous system.
Best known for soothing tight muscles and boosting well-being, Swedish massage also offers a whole host of other health benefits, including:
- easing muscular strain by flushing out toxins
- improving blood circulation and blow flow throughout the body
- helping to keep ligaments and tendons supple and improving range of motion
- reducing emotional and physical stress
- easing back pain and chronic pain
Indian head massage
Indian head massage also known as champissage, is a treatment that focuses on massaging acupressure points along the head, neck, and shoulders, often using circular massage strokes to improve hair and scalp condition.
It originates from an Indian alternative medicine system called Ayurveda, (translated as the ‘science of life’), whereby it is believed that the mind and body are intricately connected and thus can influence one another. Through this theory, it is understood that Indian head massage can not only reduce headaches and improve physical well-being, but it can also improve mental and emotional wellness too.
Prenatal massage is therapeutic bodywork that focuses on the special needs of the mother-to-be as her body goes through the dramatic changes of pregnancy. It enhances the function of muscles and joints, improves circulation and general body tone, and relieves mental and physical fatigue.
Prenatal massage can help to:
- improve circulation, and increase the flow of oxygen to soft tissue and muscles
- reduce leg and back pain and joint pain
- reduce oedema (water retention) and swelling
- improve sleep
- improve mood and lower anxiety
- regulate hormones, such as helping to decrease levels of stress hormones and
- increase "happy" hormones such as serotonin and dopamine
- reduce muscle tension, and tension headaches
Hot Stone Therapy
Hot stone therapy is a specialist massage that uses smooth, flat, heated basalt stones that are positioned along your spine, in the palms of your hands, along your legs and between the toes. Typically from river beds, basalt stones are used for massage as they have a rich iron content that retains heat. Cold marble stones are often used in the treatment to help aid with detoxing and healing the body.
Hot stone therapy helps people who suffer from:
- back pain
- muscular pain
- depression or anxiety
- poor circulation
Myofascial release focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the trigger points. It’s not always easy to understand what trigger point is responsible for the pain. Localizing pain to a specific trigger point is very difficult. For that reason, myofascial release is often used over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points.
Myofascial release can have the following benefits:
- Reduce pain
- Release knots/trigger points
- Improve movement and flexibility
- Improve muscle function
- Enhance circulation by breaking up the tight areas where blood flow may become restricted
- Reduce exercise-related soreness
Manual lymphatic drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage is a type of massage based on the hypothesis that it will encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system.
Lymphatic drainage massage can benefit people who are experiencing the following:
- swelling or edema
- skin disorders
- digestive problems
- migraine episodes
