This technique unites the rejuvenating experience of massage with the power of aromatherapy. Aromatherapy has endless physical and psychological benefits that promote overall health and well being. A combination of volatile plant and essential oils are used to incite a feeling of restfulness and well being. When inhaled, these essential oils stimulate brain function and arouse physiological response. The all natural oils are absorbed into the skin where they are passed along to the bloodstream and diffused through respiratory membranes contributing to improved circulation and respiratory functioning. Another added benefit of aromatherapy is the sedative effect of certain natural oils which soothe the mind and body and leave the client feeling calm and serene.

However, this massage is “made to order” and the oils used are client specific. Client may choose the oil of their choice or consult a massage therapist to determine the best combination for their needs.

Reflexology Massage
Reflexology is an ancient art of healing based on the principle that there are isolated pressure points in the feet, legs, hands and ears which correspond with specific zones in the human body. When these pressure points are stimulated through massage they send a message or wave of energy to various organs and systems within the body and promote optimal functioning. This technique can serve to improve circulation as well as addressing health issues related to specific organs and/or body systems. Reflexology recruits the entire body, both internally and externally, to relieve tension and promote well-being and relaxation. Therapists typically use their hands, fingers and thumbs to provide stimulation to pressure points.

Thai reflexology techniques are used upon request and incorporate the use of a tool made from wood which is used to apply pressure to the feet and glide over/through the legs and knees. Both techniques promote a holistic approach to massage therapy which benefits the client from the inside-out.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot Stone Massage is a specialized treatment wherein smooth, flat stones are heated and applied to client’s skin or used during massage in order to impart heat to facilitate healing and relaxation. Stones may be placed under a sheet upon which the client lays while receiving a therapeutic massage or directly applied to client’s skin. The heated stones are placed along the client’s spine and legs or along the chakra center while client lies on their back.

The massage therapist may also massage client while holding oiled, heated stones in the palm of their hands using firm strokes along the muscles of the legs, arms and torso. The heat from the stones relaxes muscles and increases blood flow to the body which further accelerates the healing process. Increased circulation as a result of using heated stones promotes both physical and mental relaxation which allows the massage therapist to manipulate deeper muscles of the body for an intense and therapeutic experience.

Ayurvedic massage combines the ancient Indian medical practices outlined in Ayurveda. The Ayurvedic culture recognizes the vast therapeutic benefits of massage and for this reason family members practice the giving and receiving of massages as part of their daily interactions.

Ayurvedic massage uses a liberal amount of oils (so as to not aggravate Vata by irritating dry skin), a vigorous touch, and special attention to special pressure points, which are intended to stimulate specific organ systems. A great deal of emphasis is placed on stimulating the digestive system in Ayurveda, and the same can be said about Ayurvedic massage. Many of the pressure points and massage techniques that are employed are intended to stimulate proper digestion and elimination.
