At Healing Hands Massage and Ayurvedic Spa Services, we offer many different types of massage. Each type is designed to treat specific symptoms or complaints. For a description of a particular type of massage, select the name of the massage below.
- Marma Point Massage
Marma point massage focuses on strategic points on the body that act as energy centers. Marma points formed the basis for the Chinese accupuncture meridian system, a system currently better known. There are more than 50 marma points on the body. They are massaged by applying a drop of warm essential oil, and then massaging the point with the thumb moving in a circular motion. This stimulates the free flow of energy in the body.
- Swedish Massage
Swedish Massage uses a system of long strokes, kneading, and friction techniques on the more superficial layers of the muscles, combined with active and passive movements of the joints. It promotes general relaxation, improves circulation and range of motion, and relieves muscle tension.
These are oriental-based systems of finger-pressure massage which treat special points along the acupuncture meridians, the invisible channels of energy that flow throughout the body. Blocked energy along the meridians can cause physical discomfort, so the aim is to release the blocks and rebalance the energy flow.
- Reflexology (Zone Therapy)
Based on a philosophy similar to that of Shiatsu or Acupressure, Reflexology is organized around a system of points on the hands and feet that are thought to correspond or "reflex" to all areas of the body. With this in mind, it is like receiving a full body massage.
- Maternity Massage
A special massage used to reduce low back pain, swelling, sciatica pain, stress, and anxiety, Maternity Massage also increases circulation and body awareness through gentle stretching, range of motion exercises, and re-education of muscle. A body support system is used to allow the mother and child to be fully cradled and supported while lying in a prone position (face down).
- Sports Massage
This massage focuses on the muscles relevant to the particular athletic activity and usually is more vigorous. Besides helping prevent injury, it can improve an athlete's performance and endurance. Post event massage relieves pain, prevents stiffness, flushes lactic acid, and returns the muscle to normal sooner. Sports Massage is also used for Injury Rehabilitation.
- Integrative Restorative Muscle Therapy
Developed by Greg as the culmination of years of research and experience, this unique approach to muscle and functional healing releases chronic pain and holding patterns, re-establishing and educating new muscle memory behavior.
- Neuro Muscular Therapy
This is a method of using cross-fiber or static pressure on origins, insertions, and the belly of the muscles involved. Neuro Muscular Therapy is often used to work with such problems as chronic low back pain, whiplash, thoracic outlet syndrome, or any other chronic pain.
- Somatic Movement Therapy
Somatic Movement Therapy is a concept for re-establishing conscious muscle control between the mind and body. Using gentle and fluid motions, control of the body is regained from the inside out. This is a very relaxing therapy. Once the simple movements are learned, the result is an elimination of muscle tension through slow, fluid movements.
