Massage and Body Care
We find that occasionally pampering oneself with a luxurious spa experience fits in wonderfully with this philosophy. During your stay, we can schedule you to receive healing massage and body care via "in-home” mobile spa services providers.
Local spas, alternative health practitioners and mobile service providers offer many effective body care services and therapy modalities, including Swedish massage, Neuromuscular therapy, Craniosacral therapy, Myofascial release, Deep Tissue massage, Reflexology and Reiki healing.
Standard Swedish massage, one of the most common types of massage therapy, involves long smooth sliding and gliding strokes, kneading and circular movements, and is designed to be helpful in reducing pain and joint stiffness.
Neuromuscular massage is an effective therapy for lower back pain caused by soft tissue injury (such as a muscle strain).
Craniosacral therapy is a form of bodywork which uses breathing and therapeutic touch to manipulate the cranium.
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy which relaxes muscles, improves blood flow and stimulates muscles.
Deep tissue massage is similar to a regular massage, but the therapist massages muscle tissue, tendons and fascia instead of staying on the surface.
Reflexology and Reiki healing are alternative medicine practices many seek out. In reflexology, pressure is applied to feet, hands and other areas to make a physical change in the body. For instance, certain areas on the foot correspond to different areas on the body. Reiki is a stress reduction technique for relaxing and healing. It’s administered as energy work by laying hands on or above the body.
If this sounds as wonderful to you as we know it is, we would be happy to book your appointments for you.
