Swedish Massage - a very relaxing and therapeutic style of bodywork. It combines oils or lotion with an array of strokes such as rolling, kneading, and percussion to help the body improve its circulation. The benefits of this type of bodywork are wide-ranging and include relief from aches and pains, decreased stress levels in the body, enhanced mental clarity, improved appearance, and greater flexibility.
Reflexology - a type of bodywork that focuses on applying pressure to the specific nerve zones in your feet. Unlike other foot massages that intend to mostly relieve tension in the feet themselves, reflexology is a far more in-depth science that aims to harmonize your entire body. According to reflexology, every part of the human body is mapped into your feet. Reflexology treatments have been found to be highly effective for conditions such as allergies, headaches, and depression.
Reiki - a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy system in the body. I recommend Reiki for clients who prefer no physical touch. This gentle non-invasive energy therapy helps with relaxation and stress reduction. The client is fully clothed and relaxes on the table while the practitioner uses various standardized positions either on or slightly above the body. As the energy is absorbed, travels through and radiates clients may feel or experience feelings of heat, energy waves or tingling. Some clients see colors and some even fall asleep!
