OUR SERVICES :
*NEUROMUSCULAR THERAPY : Neuromuscular therapy treats acute or chronic pain caused by bad posture, repetitive motion, strain and sprain injuries, stress, or tension. It can eliminate or minimize discomfort and increase flexibility and circulation; while it improves body posture, energy and vitality by addressing specific muscles, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue. Heat pads or ice treatment are also used when providing specific treatment. This therapy is not soothing; some level of discomfort is common. No oil or lotion are used. Bring or wear loose clothing. For this treatment, first time clients have to come at least 20 minute before appointment to feel up necessary health history.
*MYOFASCIAL THERAPY : Myofascial release is a very effective technique that applies sustained pressure to myofascial restrictions in the connective tissue of the body to eliminate pain and restore range of motion.The fascia is a specialized tissue in the body with an appearance similar to a spider's web or a sweater. Having restrictions in one part of the fascia can create radiating pain to adjacent areas of the body. Oil or lotion may be used ( maybe a little for very dry or hairy skin to prevent friction's)
*SWEDISH MASSAGE : Swedish massage promotes general relaxation and improves circulation and joint mobility, as well as relieving muscle tension. Used primarily in a full body session. It is a system of long strokes, kneading, and friction techniques on the superficial layers of muscles.Oil or lotion are used.
*DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE : Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue.The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles.
Keep in mind that soreness is somewhat common after treatment. Plenty of water should be drunk to aid the body in flushing and removing toxins released during the session. Oil or lotion are used.
*HOT STONES THERAPY : This therapy is a deeply soothing massage of long flowing strokes using hot smooth volcanic stones.The stones are placed on the body so the warmth of the stones penetrates into the muscles to release tightness, ease aches and soothe away stress.This therapy will take you into deep stage of relaxation.
*SHIATSU : Like acupuncture, Shiatsu is based on the traditional Chinese medicine. The massage therapist applies pressure using fingers, thumbs, palms, and gentle stretching techniques over a wider area of the body to integrate the point work and encourage the flow of Chi (energy) throughout the body.The massage will be provided on a futon mat. The client will remain fully clothed.
*REIKI : Reiki is a gentle healing technique which accesses the universal energy flowing through the therapist's hands.This energy is directed to the body to stabilize and amplify the energy flow within the body.The technique is completely non-invasive.
