Swedish Massage is a long standing practice that promotes overall improvement of health, physically, mentally and spiritually. This therapeutic technique employs the use of long, soothing strokes and the use of oils, combined with manipulation of the muscle tissues and surrounding fascia for deep relaxation.
The broad strokes help to calm the nervous system and begin to relax and warm the muscle fibers. Specific areas of tension can then be addressed at the level of readiness of each individual.
Thai yoga massage is also an age old practice, with it's origins stemming from India and is based on the Sen lines that travel throughout the body distributing Prana or Qi. The fully clothed recipient is guided through a series of mobilizations, stretches, and acupressure points in combination with various palming, forearm, and elbow techniques to move energy along these energetic pathways, increasing circulation, relieving muscle tension, and providing a deeply relaxing a restorative experience.
