The human touch is an invaluable tool for healing, compassion, and support. Healers throughout time have intuitively developed a wide range of therapeutic tools using touch. We now have scientific proof of the benefits ranging from treating chronic diseases and injuries to alleviating pain and stress. Experts estimate that 80-90 percent of disease is stress-related. There are specific physiological and psychological changes that occur during a massage, including a sense of relaxation, decreasing anxiety, lowering blood pressure, increasing circulation, improving recovery from illness and sleep, and reducing fatigue. Massage therapy is a nurturing, non-invasive, drug-free, humanistic approach to assist the body in healing itself.
A full body massage and customized blend of practitioner integration techniques including circulatory, passive stretching, tui na, acupressure, and deep tissue.
The deep, slow techniques aims to realign any structural imbalance by releasing contracted muscles or muscle groups, which allow surrounding muscles and bones to lie correctly. A combination of myofascial release, cross-friction, and trigger point work is followed by passive movement and PNF stretches.
Shiatsu is a traditional Japanese therapy meaning "finger pressure". Pressure is applied to specific points on the body using one's fingers and palms to correct imbalances. A harmonious balance is restored between mind and body. Loose comfortable clothing is recommended for this treatment.
