Deep Tissue Massage serves to alleviate muscle tension and promote optimal functioning of the blood and circulatory systems.

Through stretching and passive joint movement, Thai massage can restore the flow of positive energy and provide relief for strained or tightened muscles. Slow strokes and concentration on problem muscles groups make this massage ideal for anyone seeking both relief and relaxation.

Hot Stone Massage
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 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. This massage is perfect for anyone seeking to cleanse and purify their mind, body and spirit.
Shirodhara is a unique treatment wherein medicated oils are used to bathe the head. This technique involves applying the therapeutic oils in a concentrated stream for a fixed period of time. It is an effective therapy that promotes mental relaxation and is known to relieve symptoms of insomnia, stress, depression, and decreased mental agility.
