Deep tissue massage is a technique that focuses on the deeper layers of the muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fingers of the muscles, tendons and fascia. Deep tissue massage is used to release chronic muscle tension through slower strokes and more direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscle.
Reflexology is a gentle form of therapeutic treatment applied to the feet and sometimes the hands. It evolved around 1913 from the work of Dr. William H. Fitzgerald, an ear, nose, and throat surgeon in the United States. Reflexology is considered to be a holistic healing technique that aims to treat the individual as a whole, in order to induce a state of balance, and harmony of the body, mind and spirit.
Reflexology is based on the belief that there are reflex areas on the feet (and hands) corresponding to all parts of the body including major organs, which are stimulated by the therapist to restore health.
Shiatsu in Japanese means finger pressure. This treatment incorporates the use of pressure through fingers, thumbs, palms, knees forearms, elbows and feet. Pressure is applied to the energy lines of the body (meridians) to promote good health while stimulating the body’s energy and flow.
Shiatsu stimulates the circulatory, lymphatic and hormonal systems and also regulates the activity of the autonomic nervous system.
Acupressure is one of the oldest and most widespread healing methods in the world. By gradually pressing key healing points, the therapist stimulates the body’s natural self-curative ability. This treatment may be used to reduce tension, increase circulation and to detoxify the body for greater health and beauty.
An average session lasts for about one hour, and a number of sessions are normally required to complete.
