Massage therapy is a hands-on therapeutic technique that optimizes health through treatment of the muscles and fascia. It influences the nervous system and aids in flushing the fluid systems. Treatment benefits people of all ages and can enhance your overall emotional and physical well-being.
THERAPEUTIC HOT STONE MASSAGE THERAPY
Pairing hot stone massage with therapeutic techniques allows for greater depth of treatment while reducing pain and muscle tightness. As the stone manually works through the muscle tissue, the heat increases blood circulation, reduces the sensation of pain and softens the muscle tissue, making it more malleable. This extends the duration of the beneficial effects of the treatment while reducing the soreness that can result from a deeper treatment. Therapeutic hot stone massage is beneficial for injury rehabilitation, chronic muscle tightness, chronic muscle pain, adhered connective tissues and relaxation in general.
Cupping Massage is a therapy in which cups are used through suction to lift and decompress tissue, promoting blood flow and stimulation to the lymphatic. This stimulation not only works to deliver a deep tissue massage, but it also helps with blood flow, inflammation, and pain. Cupping is excellent at increasing joint mobility, waking up the lymphatic system, thus helping to drain excess fluids and toxins, stimulating the nervous system, pulling fresh blood flow to stagnant muscles, and even loosens adhesions in muscle and myofascial tissue.
