Deep tissue massage involves applying firm presssure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. It's used for chronic aches and pain and contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Relaxation Massage is a smooth, gentle, flowing style that promotes general relaxation. relieves muscular tension, plus improves cirulation and range of movement.
Massage Cupping is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage. Cupping can be a stand alone treatment or added to your massage at no additional cost.
Prenatal massage is massage specifically for pregnancy. It is usually performed side lying to massage the back and propped up with a wedge pillow to work neck, arms etc.
Hot Stone massage is a deeply relaxing treatment using warm basalt stones, to warm and relax muscle tension. Especially nice in cold weather!
Bellanina Facelift massage is a treatment designed to help lift and tone the facial muscles using facial massage, accupressure and a honeylift treatment. It also includes some massage of the arms, legs, hands, feet, neck and scalp.
Facial cupping uses small suction cups on the face. The suction promotes increased blood circulation, which may help relieve muscle tension, promote cell repair. and aid in regeneration. Over time this practice improves the complexion, diminishes fine lines and wrinkles and reduces puffiness caused by fluid retention.
Headache massage is designed to help reduce tension headache and migraine pain. It utilizes accupressure, massage of neck and shoulders, scalp and face, cold marble stones and, with permission, aromatherapy.
Thai massage is available only after personal consultation with me, it involves deep compression massage and yoga like stretching. This is done through comfortable clothing on a floor mat.
Reiki is a spiritual healing art. It is a subtle and effective form of energy healing using spiritually guided life force energy. During a Reiki session, the client is fully clothed while comfortably reclining on a massage table. It may helpease tension and stress and support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels-physical, emotional and spiritual.
Healing Touch is an energy therapy in which practitioners consciously use their hands in a heart centered and intentional way to supportand facilitate physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. Healing Touch uses the gift of touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the flow from the energy field to the physical body.
