Remedial massage helps systematically to treat pain and injury that alters the formation of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body. It also helps to create favorable conditions for the body to return to normal health and slowly reverse the physical effects by reducing or eliminating pain. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle tensions and soft tissues to promote and return them to normal joint, capsular and bone position by increasing the flow of blood and lymph, especially in the injured areas.
A relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who have had a hard working week of feel like treating themselves to some tender loving care! The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. It is a pain free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.
Sport massage intends to focus on treating pain and injury that are most commonly associated with physical or recreational activities by reducing tension in the muscles and tranquilizes the blood pressure and heart rate. This form of massage is most suited for patients who wish to recover more quicker and beneficially from strenuous workouts or want to form into good shape to reduce muscles stiffness and soreness.
Hot Stones Massge
Hot stones are placed over the areas of muscles to be relaxed and form and aura of retained heat which can penetrate through the body. As the stones are placed over the body, the muscles will begin to relax and effectively flow blood through the circulation as the muscles are already warmth up from the heat and thus can promote a greater relief of tense areas, injuries, or stagnated areas of the body.
Majority of the reflexology is applied to the feet and legs as the principles of traditional Chinese medicine help to invigorate a balance of flow of energy throughout the entire body with deep pressure points. When there is a blockage in the meridian (line of energy flow), this encourages pain to occur upon pressure which indicates that the corresponding area of the body is experiencing a blockage of circulation (lacking the flow of Qi). Therefore, by stimulating the reflex zones of the feet or hands, this will revitalise the organ system and meridians to removes any wastes and blockages that are manipulating the flow of blood (and Qi).
Traditional Thai Massage
Traditional Thai Massage or Chaleoi-sak massage is an ancient therapy from Thailand, a dry massage with comprehensive techniques to strengthen overall wellbeing. This massage is delivered by using palms, knees, elbows, and feet during therapeutic treatment. Through the use of passive stretching, acupressure, and energy line to work on different body positions, this traditional massage type effectively focuses on reducing tension, balancing the energy system in the human body and enhancing the flexibility of joints and musculoskeletal systems.
Cupping involves placing warm cups which are placed on the treated muscles to further remove stagnation of blocked blood flow and therefore stimulate the free flow of Qi. Usually dark reddish-purple cupping marks will remain on the body as the prognosis is still progressing after the treatment, which in effect is continuing to eliminate waste products and blockages.
Four Hand Massage
Four hand massage is the practice of two masseuses working on a single client. It doubles the pleasure of a traditional Swedish massage; two masseuses get to work relieving your kinks, knots, and stresses with simultaneous, mirrored movements. Four hand massage is an excellent option for someone who has trouble relaxing during treatment. Skilled masseuses familiar with four hand massage not only mirror one another’s hand movements, but also exert an equal amount of pressure on each side in order to produce a balanced, relaxing experience.
