Swedish massage

 

Swedish massage is a gentle full-body massage that’s great for people who:

  • are new to massage
  • want to release tension
  • desire gentle touch

It can help release muscle knots, and it’s also a good choice for when you want to fully relax during a massage.

For this massage, you’ll remove your clothes, though you may choose to keep your underwear on. You’ll be covered with a sheet while lying on the massage table. The massage therapist will move the sheet to uncover areas that they are actively working on.

The massage therapist will use a combination of:

  • kneading
  • long, flowing strokes in the direction of the heart
  • deep circular motions
  • vibration and tapping
  • passive joint movement techniques

Usually, a Swedish massage will last 60 to 90 minutes.

Hot stone massage

 

Hot stone massage is best for people who have muscle pain and tension or who simply want to relax.

This type of therapeutic massage is similar to a Swedish massage, only the massage therapist uses heated stones in lieu of or in addition to their hands.

Hot stone massage may help:

  • ease muscle tension
  • improve blood flow
  • alleviate pain
  • promote relaxation
  • relieve stress

During a hot stone massage, heated stones are placed on different areas of the whole body. Your therapist may hold a stone as they massage different parts of your body using Swedish massage techniques with gentle pressure. Sometimes, cold stones are also used.

Aromatherapy massage

 

Aromatherapy massages are best for people who enjoy the scent and want to have an emotional healing component to their massage. This type of massage can help:

  • boost your mood
  • reduce stress and anxiety
  • reduce symptoms of depression
  • relieve muscle tension
  • relieve pain

Aromatherapy massages combine soft, gentle pressure with the use of essential oils. Your massage therapist will usually decide which essential oils to use, but you can let them know if you have a preference. Essential oils are diluted before being applied to the skin.

During the massage, you’ll be given a full-body massage while inhaling essential oils through a diffuser and absorbing them through your skin.

Sometimes, an aromatherapy massage will only focus on your back, shoulders, and head. You won’t wear any clothing, but underwear is optional.

CVST – Two-Cups Cranial Vibro-Sound Therapy

 

 

CVST vibrations are a relaxing massage modality technique in which Cranial muscles and tissues and neck muscles and tissues are pressed and released in an up-and-down movement, a circular movement, or a pressing movement. A Cranial sound vibration massage creates a vibrating sound and shaking motion onto the facial muscles and facia muscles that can be performed in a soothing or more stimulating way. Lighter vibration sound techniques can also help stimulate the Parasympathetic nervous system which is linked to the Autonomic Nervous System and the Sympathetic nervous system and helps the Cranial muscles relax. An increasing speed of vibration sounds can be used to stimulate the circulatory system and loosen soft tissues. The work is experientially oriented. CVST therapy addresses a specific system in the body that is used to assess and treat a variety of problems, many of which relate to proper neurological functioning. In this regard, CVST therapy has particular potential for helping individuals with a wide range of conditions. They include chronic pain syndromes unsuccessfully treated by other approaches, head neck, or back injuries, tinnitus, and a number of stress-related conditions including insomnia, headaches, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and TMJ syndrome.  It’s a physiological system made up of cranial bones, the sacrum, and the membrane structures that connect these two areas of the body. There is a distinct rhythm within this system (the craniosacral rhythm) created by the flow of cerebrospinal fluid through the membrane complex.  The technique relies largely on the body’s inherent ability for self-correction and therefore is quite non-invasive and does not cause “side effects,” so to speak. During CVRT many patients experience different sensations in their bodies, sometimes strong images will come into the patient’s mind, others feel releases of emotion or tension, and still others simply fall asleep. It depends on the individual response and oftentimes patients will report after two or three treatments they can feel their own cranial rhythm, either during the treatment or spontaneously during times when their bodies are still. The length of the CVST massage session is anywhere between 15 and 60 minutes depending on your individual needs.
