BACK, NECK AND SHOULDERS MASSAGE
Back, neck and shoulder massage, one of the most fundamental and popular of all spa services, concentrates on the back of the body and can be ideal for sufferers of chronic back pain.
TRIGGER POINT MASSAGE
A trigger point is a tight area within the muscle tissue that causes pain in an other part of the body. Trigger points may from in muscles which are overused, injured, unbalanced or post surgery. The trigger point is painful when pressed on, causes a shortening of the muscle fibers, and has a special property called referred pain. Referred pain means that a trigger point in one muscle can create pain in another area. A trigger point in the back for example can create referral pain in the neck. The main goal of the trigger point therapy is to alleviate the real soure of the pain.
CONNECTIVE TISSUE MASSAGE
Connective tissue massage focuses on reducing pain by easing the tension and tightness in the trigger points. It’s not always easy to understand what trigger point is responsible for the pain. Localizing pain to a specific trigger point is very difficult. For that reason, myofascial release is often used over a broad area of muscle and tissue rather than at single points. These areas where the massage therapist is working may not be near where the pain originates or where you feel the pain most prominently. Myofascial release works the broader network of muscles that might be causing your pain. It tries to reduce tension throughout your body by releasing trigger points across a broad section of your muscular system.
MERIDIAN FLOW MASSAGE
Meridian flow massage is a preventative and therapeutic method, a holistic treatment based on the accupressure points and energy lines of our body. The remedial massage brings back us in balance and as well improve our mental and physical health.
REFLEXOLOGY - FOOT MASSAGE
Reflexology is a type of massage that involves applying different amounts of pressure to the feet. It's based on a theory that these body parts are connected to certain organs and body systems. Highly recommended as a remedy after a long walk in the city.
