Manual Lymphatic Drainage MLD
Is  a type of gentle massage which intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph. Specific movements of the skin stimulate the contraction of the lymphatic vessels so a greater amount of metabolism waste products, excess fluid and valuable substances are removed from the tissue and returned to the lymphatic system for eventual redistribution or elimination.
Hot Stone Massage
Is a massage that uses smooth, flat, and heated rocks placed at key points on the body.
The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone treatment with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. Promotes deeper muscles relaxation.
One of the most relaxing and enjoyable treatments. Would you like to try it??
Trigger point therapy:
Trigger points also known as , trigger sites, or muscle knots, are hyperirritable spots in the fascia surrounding skeletal muscle.
Trigger point massage therapy is specifically designed to alleviate the source of the pain through cycles of isolated pressure and release. In this type of massage for trigger point therapy, the recipient actively participates through deep breathing as well as identifying the exact location and intensity of the discomfort.
The results and benefits of trigger point massage are releasing constricted areas in the muscles thus alleviating pain. You can experience a significant decrease in pain after just one treatment. Receiving massage with trigger point therapy on a regular basis can help naturally manage pain and stress from chronic injuries.

The Kinesio Taping® Method is a definitive rehabilitative taping technique that is designed to facilitate the body’s natural healing process while providing support and stability to muscles and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion as well as providing extended soft tissue manipulation to prolong the benefits of manual therapy administered within the clinical setting.

Myofascial Release
 is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion.
Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.

Deep tissue Massage
 is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.


Your body works hard for you each and every day of your life.

 You are expecting  years of service from your body...years that are often filled with too little sleep, too little exercise, and an abundance of stress.

Someone Asked The Dalai Lama What Surprises Him Most, His Response Was Mind Altering
“Man surprised me most about humanity. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money.
Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”

Massage therapy is an invitation to return your body to balance, to reconnect with your body needs.
Receiving massage even just once a month can make a difference!
Sure, massage therapy can help you relax. But it can do much more than that.

It eases muscle pain

Got sore muscles? Massage therapy can help. “Massage increases and improves circulation, in much the same way rubbing your elbow when you knock it on a table helps to relieve the pain,” says Tanason.

2011 study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, found that massage therapy is as effective as other methods of treatment for chronic back pain.

It soothes anxiety and depression

“Human touch, in a context that is safe, friendly and professional, can be incredibly therapeutic and relaxing,” says Tanason.
Study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, found that patients who were depressed and anxious were much more relaxed and happy, and had reduced stress levels after massage.

It boosts immunity

A 2010 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that massage boosts patients' white blood cell count (which plays a large role in defending the body from disease).

It relieves headaches

Next time a headache hits, try booking a last-minute massage. “Massage decreases frequency and severity of tension headaches,” says de Miranda.

Research from Granada University in Spain found that a single session of massage therapy has an immediate effect on perceived pain in patients with chronic tension headaches.
