Thai “Nuad Boran,” known as Thai Massage in the West, was developed in Thailand over 2500 years ago. This system of healing focuses on circulation of energy in the pathways of the body, called “sen.” Traditionally practiced on the floor, the practitioner creates a dance of movement on your fully clothed body. Hands, feet, forearms, elbows and knees are used to perform acupressure, reflexology and assisted stretches. This often results in your joints being opened, internal organs toned and energy balanced in a delightful, rhythmic fashion.

Deep Tissue Deep Tissue is a type of massage therapy that focuses on releasing deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful if you suffer from chronic stiff neck, upper back, low back pain, tight legs and sore shoulders. Chronic muscle tension can often be traced to bands of rigid tissue in muscles, tendons and ligaments. In effect, the therapist performs strokes that are similar to Swedish Massage, but the movements are slower and the pressure is more focused on the areas of tension. Results such as recovery from injury, increased mobility and better posture are maximized once your muscles are thoroughly relaxed.

Aroma Aromatherapy massage combines the use of essential oils with therapeutic massage. The oils are concentrated essences from flowers, fruits, seeds, leaves and bark of certain plants. Depending on your needs, essential oils are mixed with carrier oils, massaged into your skin and inhaled through your nose. They then enter your blood stream to facilitate healing effects such as deep relaxation, a boosted immune system and mental clarity.

Shiatsu Shiatsu massage is a distinctly Japanese form of therapeutic massage that has evolved out of 3500 years of eastern medical wisdom. The practitioner’s focus is to help restore the flow of your ki (energy) that flows from each organ out into the body. With the use of palms, fingers and elbows, the practitioner applies rhythmic pressure, as you lay fully clothed either on the floor, or on a low table. The entire body is treated as you relax deeply and get in touch with your innate abilities to self heal. The effects of Shiatsu often lead one feeling deeply calm, yet energized.

Swedish The term “Swedish Massage” refers to a variety of techniques designed to increase the oxygen flow in the blood and release toxins from the muscles. With the use of oil, the therapist performs gliding, kneading, cross-fiber friction and percussive motions to facilitate a relaxing, rejuvenating experience. Pacing can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing, depending on the treatment. A soothed nervous system, improved digestion, restful sleep and a sense of well-being are often the residual affects.

Hot Stone Hot Stone Massage is a form of massage therapy that follows the same principles as Swedish Massage but with the addition of heated stones. The stones are used to alleviate your tension and may be placed in specific spots to let your body absorb the heat while a different area is being massaged. The heat and pressure will mobilize your connective tissue, release trigger points and soften adhesions in a comfortable and efficient way. The broad pressure of the stones makes deeper work less intense, enhancing the therapeutic benefits of the massage.
