*Cranial Sacral Therapy 60 min 90 min
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a gentle, hands-on approach to bodywork that has its roots in Cranial Osteopathy. The Cranial Sacral system is made up of the brain, spinal cord, meningeal membranes, cerebrospinal fluid, and the bones of the head, spinal column, and sacrum. By releasing tension in the tissues that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord this therapy optimizes the central nervous system and all other systems of the body.
*Swedish/Relaxation Massage 30 min 60 min 90 min
Swedish Massage was organized into five techniques by a Swedish physiologist who suffered from joint disease. Effleurage is a repetition of gliding strokes aimed to lengthen. Petrissage or "to knead" a muscle helps blood and lymph move toward the heart. Friction is a quick back and forth movement to increase blood flow in superficial tissues, break up adhesions, and helps in absorption of fluid around the joints. Vibration "confuses" the the nervous system allowing muscles to relax and becomes sedative. Tapotement is to tap, drum, or pat. it is used to stimulate which tones muscles and increases circulation.
*Reflexology 30 min 60 min
Many cultures have massaged the feet to promote health responses in other areas of the body. In reflexology the body is viewed in zones (zone theory) and a blockage or congestion in a certain segment may affect anything in that area. Upper and lower extremities are linked together through the joints and through vertical zones that run vertically in the body. This is know as the referral system and specific areas that relate to each other are called the referral areas. Reflexology uses these areas to promote healing.
Hot Stone Massage 60 min $75.00, 90 min $105.00
Hot stone massage uses heated basalt river rocks to a temperature between 110 and 130 degrees Fahrenheit. The heat from the stones allows the therapist to work deeper into the tissue while using lighter pressure. Some treatments may place stones on certain points of the body that are thought to energetically balance the body. Swedish massage techniques are typically used during a hot stone massage before and after the application of the stones.
*Massage Rate is $1.00 per minute unless otherwise stated.
