Ashiatsu is a barefoot massage technique in which the therapist is able to deliver slow, broad and wide, deep strokes with their feet, and body weight without causing pain or discomfort.
Orthopedic Massage combines elements of sports and medical massage to treat soft-tissue pain and injury. The practitioner learns to understand the injury and criteria for rehabilitation. The modality intently focuses on the restoration of structural integrity through a series of muscular skeletal assessments, and problem solving for functional outcomes. Techniques include, but are not limited to: Deep tissue, Neuromuscular or Trigger Point Therapy, Cross-Fiber Friction, joint movement or range of motion techniques, passive stretches, or active resistive techniques.
*STRUCTURAL RESTORATION IS THE PRIMARY FOUNDATION OF EVERY TREATMENTS
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying of hands" both on and off the body, and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us which causes us to be alive. This energy is characterized by and flows between the 7 major chakras which can sometimes become imbalanced, blocked, or excessively active.
Reiki has nothing to do with spiritualism or the occult, and is compatible with all religions, beliefs, nationalities, races, color or creed, and is entirely non-judgmental.
* PLEASE SPECIFY IS YOU WANT YOUR SESSION TO BE PREDOMINANTLY REIKI.
Hot & Cold therapy is known as contrast therapy, and involves alternating applications of heat and ice to relieve the pain associated with injury or overexertion. We apply this technique with the use of therapeutic gemstones, additionally integrating their natural healing properties.
The heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist to work deeper while using lighter pressure, and aids in manipulating adhered tissue and fascia
