Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. The inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function.

Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that treats the mind, body and spirit. When essential oils are applied to the body during a massage, the essential oils enter the skin through the hair follicles where they are absorbed in to the blood stream and circulated around the body.

Aromatherapy has many benefits to the person being treated and can:

Benefit

  • Enhance mood and general feeling of well-being through massage and the use of essential oils.
  • Improve blood and lymphatic circulation through massage and the use of essential oils. Depending upon the essential oils used the blood vessels will either constrict or dilate thereby raising or lowering blood pressure.
  • Balance the hormone production by the endocrine system. Essential oils such as clary sage can mimic oestrogen.
  • Strengthen the immune system by helping to kill viruses, bacteria and fungal infections.
  • Reduce pain
  • Encourage restful sleep
  • Improve digeston

Deep tissue

Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

Don’t eat a heavy meal before the massage. If it’s your first time at the clinic or spa, arrive at least 10 minutes early to complete the necessary forms. Otherwise, arrive 5 minutes early so you can have a few minutes to rest and relax before starting the massage.

A deep tissue massage may result in muscle soreness or tenderness, which may last a day or two. Your massage therapist may recommend icing any painful areas.

Drinking water after the massage may help to flush out toxins that are released from muscles and properly rehydrate muscles, which can help to reduce muscle aches and stiffness after a massage.

Avoid strenuous activity after a massage. Stretching can help to prevent muscle aches and pain after a deep tissue massage.

Hot Stones Therapy

Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism. Each 1 ½ -hour hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. Our professional massage therapists also incorporate a customized massage, with the use of hot stones which offers enhanced benefits.

The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Slimming

This treatment reenergizes while promoting detoxification. It begins with a dry brush exfoliation to stimulate lymphatic drainage and circulation while promoting the absorption of clinically tested slimming actives. A mask of nutrient-rich algae is then applied to the body and is followed by a deeply relaxing head massage. Next, an intensive, highly concentrated body serum containing slimming actives plus firming and refining extracts is applied, boosting elasticity and refining the skin for a sleek, smooth, contoured look.

Mental and emotional Benefits

Slimming massage is popularly known to further enhance the body’s circulation. It enriches the exchange of blood and nutrients to the different organs, cells, tissues and other body systems. One article that I have read states that slimming massage improves the suppleness and flexibility of muscles which further intensifies the resilience, vigor and potency. This modern process functions with the use of swift and periodic strokes. These deep and intense strokes can help trim down the excess cellulites and drop off some overload of weight.

  • Improvement in length and quality of sleep
  • Relief of stress, depression, anxiety and irritation

One of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart.
