If you suffer from mental stress, feel run down, or have chronic inflammation, adding aromatherapy to your massage is key. The pure essential oils help comfort and refresh mind, body, and spirit. As a bonus, take home the mixed massage oils after your session to prolong the effectiveness of the session.
Add an exfoliation to your massage session if your skin is dry, peeling, or lacking vitality. Sea salt is one of the best exfoliants you can use for your body. The coarse grains work to improve circulation and slough off dead skin from the skin’s surface, leaving it healthy and soft. The sea salt also helps to promote the body's natural secretion of healthy oils, relieving dry and flaky skin. This half-hour session should be added to your massage at least every spring and fall to renew your skin. It’s also available as a stand-alone session.
Cupping is one of the oldest methods of treatment in Traditional Chinese Medicine. Local suction, creating a vacuum, gently lifts the skin upward toward the cup. Cups can be left in place to remove deep stagnation or moved gently over the skin. Cupping releases toxins, increases the blood flow, realigns qi, and resolves obstruction, muscle soreness, and pain to promote healing. Cupping causes blood to be drawn to the surface of the skin, which can/may cause non-permanent red marks, swelling, and bruising at the local area for 2- 4 days.
Raindrop technique applies essential oils to the feet, back and spine to help align the body structurally and energetically without using hard pressure. Often, many types of spinal problems, pain, and misalignments are released as the toxins and viruses in the area are dispatched. The session is customized to your specific issues, but a typical session includes seven single essential oils and three blends of essential oils, which are applied neat (without dilution) to the skin, after which specialized massage strokes are used to help the oils penetrate the muscles and nervous system. After the application of the oils, a warm, moist towel is placed on the back for five to ten minutes as you rest.
If you like your feet massaged, book a reflexology session for your next appointment. Reflex points on the feet correspond to different areas of the body through the nervous system. Reflexology is believed to heal a number of illnesses, ranging from back pain to migraine to sleep disorders. Arthritis sufferers have also found that it eases their pain. Reflexology decreases issues such as vertigo, headaches, constipation and foot pain. Sinus sufferers maintain that it offers instant relief from congestion.

For which conditions is shiatsu used?
Neck and Shoulder Pain
Recovery from Injuries
Shiatsu massage is an energy-based therapy that originated within the Asian Healing Arts. It incorporates the theory of acupuncture, which proposes that energy, known as "Chi" (or "Ki") moves through the body along well-defined passageways called meridians. Creating balance in these energy flows is considered to be essential for health and well-being. Shiatsu massage, which involves application of pressure on energy points and energy pathways, combined with light stretching and movement, has been found to be exceptionally effective for lessening stress, reducing fatigue, and alleviating a wide spectrum of symptoms..
The Kinesio Taping method is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles and joints, without restricting the body’s range of motion. Special tape is applied over muscles to reduce pain and inflammation, to relax overused tired muscles, and to support muscles in movement on a 24hr/day basis. Kinesio Tape is also used to re-educate the neuromuscular system, reduce pain, optimize performance, prevent injury, and promote improved circulation and healing.
