What kind of massage is right for you?
We’re super excited to be offering massage services at our spa again. Our new massage therapist comes to us with a medical background, which means he can provide a wide variety of massage options. Which one should you choose?
Customize your spa experience with elements from the following:
Swedish Massage Choosing this kind of massage is all about relaxation. It will treat the whole body as well as calming your mind.
Deep Tissue Massage Also known as Medical Massage, this choice focuses on one or two specific areas of the body with the intention of alleviating aches and pains or medical complaints and disorders. This kind of massage can include orthopedic testing, stretching, paraffin wax treatment (see below), therapeutic cupping (see below), and a medium-to-heavy intensity.
Paraffin Wax Dip This technique can be used on feet and hands to alleviate joint pain. After being dipped in a bath of warm wax, the hand or foot is wrapped in a warm towel to lock in the heat, prolonging the beneficial effects of this pain-relief treatment. Additionally, this procedure moisturizes and smooths the skin.
Therapeutic Cupping This massage element uses specially designed suction cups to lift the skin and underlying muscle in order to relieve tension and improve lymph and blood flow.
Pre-Natal and Peri-Natal Massage Massage can be a great way to alleviate some of the stress associated with child bearing. Typically this kind of massage emphasizes physical and mental relaxation.
With so many options available, each massage experience can be tailored for your health and wellness as an individual. Come talk to our massage therapist and customize the perfect treatment to meet your pain-relief and relaxation needs.
