DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep Tissue Massage, is a deeper more intense massage. This technique uses slow, deep guided strokes and firm pressure designed to relieve chronic tension and reach below the superficial muscles. Deep Tissue Massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain and soreness in both large and small muscle groups.  The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints).

HOT STONE MASSAGE

Hot Stone massage incorporates elements of Swedish massage by using smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body.  The concept behind hot stone therapy is that the direct heat of the stones more quickly relaxes superficial muscles, allowing the therapist access to deeper muscle layers.  The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.
