As the stones are placed along the recipient’s back, they help to retain heat which then deeply penetrates into the muscles, releasing tension.

Massage Descriptions

Swedish massage uses five styles of long, flowing strokes of massage. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber) and vibration/shaking. The term “Swedish” massage is actually only recognized in English and Dutch speaking countries and in Hungary. Elsewhere (including Sweden) the style is referred to as “classic massage”.
Deep Tissue Massage (Neuromuscular Therapy) is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia. This style of massage is used to treat particular musculoskeletal disorders and complaints and employs a dedicated set of techniques and strokes to achieve a measure of relief. It is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained physical injury.
Trigger Point Therapy involves deactivating trigger points (specific irritated areas of dysfunctional musculature) that may cause local pain or refer pain and other sensations, such as headaches, in other parts of the body. Rather than applying direct pressure to relieve a trigger point, the therapist utilizes the pain pattern experienced as symptoms of other weakened or dysfunctional musculature. Neuromuscular therapy technique is performed to relieve myofascial (myo = muscle/fascia = covering) pain.
Sports Massage is a physical treatment primarily used on the neuromusculoskeletal system to treat pain and disability. It most commonly includes kneading and manipulation of muscles, joint mobilization, and joint manipulation.
Hot Stone Massage uses heated stones to apply pressure and heat to the body. The stones used are commonly Basalt stones (or lava rocks) which over time have become extremely polished and smooth. Stones can also be used with oil or lotion to assist the therapist delivering various massaging strokes. As the stones are placed along the recipient’s back, they help to retain heat which then deeply penetrates into the muscles, releasing tension.
Pediatric Massage is the complementary and alternative treatment that uses massage therapy, or “the manual manipulation of soft tissue intended to promote health and well-being” for children and adolescents.
Prenatal Massage focuses on the mother-to-be as she goes through the changes due to pregnancy. This is not a replacement for medical care and prior, but rather as an adjunct to aid in the health and rapid recovery of the mother. Prior to receiving any massage treatment, a client should have a note from their doctor stating massage is not contraindicated. Treatment focuses on the concerns of each trimester. After the mother has given birth, treatment will assist in restoring the body back to its normal condition. Prenatal massage may also help reduce and/or eliminate excess water.
