Thai Massage:

Thai Massage (nuat phaen boran, or ???????????) was developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. It made its way to Thailand, and was later influenced by traditional Chinese medicine. For centuries, Thai massage was performed by monks as a component of Thai medicine.

You may enjoy your Thai massage on a padded floor mat, or on a massage table. Your masseuse uses her hands. arms, legs, knees, and feet to apply firm rhythmic pressure, Thai-style stretching, acupressure, and deep massage. Oil is not normally used.

You will find Thai massage to be more energizing and rigorous than the more classic forms of massage. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work, and with these benefits:

  • >Relaxes
  • >Reduces stress
  • >Improves circulation
  • >Increases energy
  • >Increases flexibility
  • >Improves range of motion
  • >Centers the mind and body

Swedish Massage:

Swedish massage (“classic massage”) is the most popular form of massage today. It is a very relaxing, therapeutic massage reported to be helpful in relieving pain, reducing joint stiffness, relaxing muscles and the nervous system, and improving circulation. In general, Swedish massage produces a profound sense of relaxation and well-being.

Swedish massage did not originate in Sweden, but was developed in Europe (mainly in the Netherlands and France). Dr. Ling promoted the technique at the University of Stockholm in the early 1800’s. Swedish massage was introduced to the United States in 1858 as "The Swedish Movement Cure."

In Swedish Massage the masseuse uses up to five different strokes: effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrisage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber), and vibration. Massage oils are used in order to facilitate smooth, gliding strokes, with some kneading, tapping, stretching, and gentle pressure.

Your masseuse will ask you some questions to be sure you are not suffering from certain conditions for which massage may not be recommended (infectious disease, blood clots, open wounds, skin rashes, etc.).

Thai Healing Massage:

Thai healing massage derives from an Asian family of body work, and combines Thai massage (Thailand), Shiatsu (Japan), Tui Na (China), and Yoga (India). Those systems are based on the concept that there is not only a physical body with bones, muscles, nerves, and blood circulation, but also a subtle energy which supports the physical body. This energy is called “Lom” (Thailand), “Ki” (Japan), “Qi” (China), and “Prana” (India).

Thai healing is used to treat and revitalize individuals with sedentary or overworked habits. If muscles are underused or overused they may stiffen and shorten, resulting in restricted joint movement, tightness, pain, limited spinal flexibility, a lowered immune system, and ultimately, disease. Combined with stressful lifestyles, inadequate breathing and inability to deeply relax may reduce immunity and lead to disease or a lower quality of life. Thai healing massage is used to address the following areas when used regularly:

  • >Deep relaxation occurs in the body.
  • >Breathing becomes deeper and relaxed.
  • >The body may restore its potential range of motion and spinal flexibility.
  • >Muscle tone tends to relax to reduce painful tension and stiffness.
  • >A deep and profound feeling of well being may be experienced.
  • >Life energy circulates naturally again to allow healing on many levels.
  • >The body resists injury and disease; energy levels tend to increase.

Deep Tissue Massage:

Deep Tissue massage is designed to relieve severe tension in muscles and connective tissue. This massage focuses on the muscles and tissue located below the surface muscles. Deep Tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience pain or stiffness from heavy physical activity, such as athletes, and those with physical injury.

Deep Tissue massage is not simply a stronger or more intense massage. It is a specialized type of massage therapy using a dedicated technique with strokes designed to provide relief. It is not “deep pressure” massage, which is performed with sustained strong or intense pressure. Deep Tissue massage involves both the surface and deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue, and usually focuses on particular parts of the body.

Like other types of massage, deep tissue is most beneficial when undertaken on a regular basis; your masseuse can work with you to address long term problems, relax your body, and prevent injury.

Hot Stone Massage Therapy:

The use of hot stones for healing dates back to ancient times, but fairly recently an Arizona massage therapist revived and perfected the technique, and it caught on.

In hot stone massage, water-treated, smooth heated stones are placed at key points on your body to promote relaxation and help open energy pathways. Your therapist may begin by applying oil, which allows the hot stones to glide smoothly along your muscles. Heat from the stones penetrates your muscles to enhance the depth of the therapist’s massage that will follow.

Hot stone massage has been used to treat muscular aches and pains, arthritis, fibromyalgia. circulatory problems, stress, anxiety, insomnia, depression, and related conditions.

The benefits of hot stone massage include:
  • >Promotes deep muscle and tissue relaxation
  • >Alleviates stress
  • >Releases toxins
  • >Improves circulation
  • >Calms the psyche

Body Scrub and Massage:

A body scrub is a popular body treatment that is like a facial for the body. It exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and soft.

A body scrub is done with an abrasive material like salt or rice bran, mixed with massage oil and an aromatic. When your therapist (usually an esthetician) is finished, you will step into a shower to rinse off completely. When you are in the shower, your therapist will put clean sheets on the treatment table, and after your shower, she will apply body lotion or oil to your skin.

We recommend that you follow your body scrub with a massage. After the scrub stimulates your body, the massage will relax you. This is the ultimate form of pampering and relaxation.

You will experience some of these benefits from our body scrub and massage:
  • >Increased blood flow and circulation
