Shiatsu, meaning ‘finger pressure’, is a gentle and relaxing Japanese form of bodywork. With a continuous rhythmic sequence, thumbs, fingers and palms are used to apply localized pressure along meridian channels to release blockages and restore the natural balance of Qi.
Benefits of Shiatsu massage include deep muscle and tissue relaxation, stress reduction, mobilization of stagnant Qi, increased flexibility, improved blood circulation and a calm mind.
You can book this session of Shiatsu or an Ayurvedic Marma massage that also addresses meridians and pressure points.
Craniosacral Therapy is a hands-on healing technique where the therapist gently mobilizes and releases the Craniosacral system. It is a very gentle, noninvasive form of bodywork that addresses the bones of the head, spinal column and sacrum. The goal is to release compression in those areas which alleviates stress and pain. It helps you naturally free yourself of pain, stress, discomfort and allows many conditions to heal.
As the body releases tension the energy the body was using is also released, resulting in a boost to your general well-being, a reduction in stress, improved sleep and energy, and an enhanced functioning of the body's organs.
Beneficial in reducing any physical pain, injuries, dysfunction or psycho-emotional issues this is an amazing way to unleash the body's natural healing abilities.
MYOFASCIAL RELEASE THERAPY
Myofascial Release uses gentle sustained pressure with soft stretching in order to unlock tight fascia as it responds best to subtle engagement techniques, without causing a guarding response. This will release tightened down fascia and increase circulation in the tissues allowing them to receive the hydration and nutrition they need to heal and function.
Myofascial Release, like Craniosacral Therapy, can result in not only structural but also emotional releases.
All unresolved tensions are held in the tissues in some form of restriction causing a certain “voltage” or tension as the body carries the burden. MFR can facilitate to release these restrictions.
This is the most useful and safest form of treatment for conditions such as: joint sprains, muscle strains or pulls, tight muscles, aching muscles, limited movement, headaches, jaw pain, back pain including disc injuries, neck pain, shoulder injuries and many more.
Sports massage therapy can be used as a means to enhance pre-event preparation and reduce recovery time for maximum performance during training or after an event. This massage can help you become less prone to injury by making muscles healthy and supple. Recovery time can also be improved so you don't spend days/weeks after your training in pain.
TRIGGER POINT THERAPY
Trigger Point Therapy involves using pressure and release techniques to deactivate sensitive points in muscle fibers. These trigger points are renowned for referring pain into another area of the body. An example of this is that a trigger point in muscles of the neck can refer pain into the head giving you the sensation of a headache. The root cause of this will actually be the trigger point in the neck. Releasing this trigger point will end the headache.
Trigger Point Therapy is the most useful and safest form of treatment for conditions such as joint sprains, muscle strains or pulls, tight muscles, aching muscles, limited movement, headaches, jaw pain, back pain including disc injuries, neck pain, shoulder injuries and many more.
