A brief explanation about the types of massage/spa techniques I use.
AromaSoul therapy - the use of essential oils (extracted from herbs, flowers, resin, woods, and roots) in body and skin care treatments is known as aromatherapy. Used as a healing technique for thousands of years by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans, essential oils aid in relaxation, improved circulation, and help the healing of wounds.
Diamond Massage -Diamond massage is a relatively new treatment and a favorite of celebrities before red-carpet events. This bodywork treatment provides a deep relaxing massage simultaneously with exfoliation from diamond particles being rubbed and massaged into the skin, then particles are then collected with a magnet and the massage is finished with the application of "diamond" lotion. You will leave with silken skin!!!
Thai Black Pepper Wrap - The Thai secret of black pepper is out. The ritual begins with green tea exfoliation to awaken your senses and leave your body silky smooth. Your body is comfortably enveloped in hot black pepper oil to stimulate the vascular, lymphatic system and metabolism to encourage detoxification and weight loss
Medical Massage - Myofascial Release, Neuromuscular (Trigger Point) Therapy and/or Medical Injury Treatment Massage.
Chair Massage - involves the use of a specially designed massage chair in which the client sits comfortably. Seated massage includes bodywork and somatic techniques, such as shiatsu, amma, and Swedish massage, provided to the fully clothed client in a variety of settings.
Storm (Deep Tissue Massage)- Techniques that utilize deep-tissue/deep-muscle massage are administered to affect the sub-layer of musculature and fascia. It helps with chronic muscular pain and injury rehabilitation and reduces inflammation-related pain caused by arthritis and tendinitis.
Ear Candling - Ear candling is a very effective way you can totally cleanse your ears. There is debris inside the ears that cannot be reached with fingertips or Q-tips alone. Impacted wax, fungus, past residues of infection, fat globules build up in the ear and hide in the crevices. For example, people who have Candida yeast typically have an accumulation of fungus in the ears. Because the ear is dark and moist, it provides a perfect environment for yeast to breed. It is close to the blood supply that comes up into the head and therefore is supplied by a major food source.
Golfers Rejuvenate - Improve Range of Motion, flexibility and endurance. Targeting muscle group specific for Golfers. Deep Tissue massage, Parafango Mudd treatment.
Java Wrap-Ture - The truth about coffee: Revives your dull looking skin, diminish the appearance of varicose veins and removes the unsightly cottage cheese condition. This treatment acts as a vasorestrictor (tighten and shrink blood vessels) coffee does more than simply wake you up. It will leave your skin rejuvenated.
Neuromuscular Therapy - Neuromuscular therapy can help individuals who experience distortion and bio mechanical dysfunction, which is often a symptom of the deeper problem. It is also used to locate and release spasms and hyper contraction in the tissue, eliminate trigger points that cause referred pain, rebuild the strength of injured tissues, assist venous and lymphatic flow, and restore postural alignment, proper bio mechanics, and flexibility to the tissues.
Polarity Therapy - is based on universal principles of energy - attraction, repulsion, and neutrality. The interrelation of these principles forms the bases for every aspect of life, including our experience of health, wellness, and disease. With this understanding, polarity therapy addresses the interdependence of body, mind, and spirit, the importance of relationships, and the value of creating a way of life in harmony with nature.
Prenatal/Pregnancy Massage -Specific techniques can reduce pregnancy discomforts and concerns and enhance the physiological and emotional well-being of both mother and fetus. Skilled, appropriate touch facilitates labor, shortening labor times and easing pain and anxiety.
Paraffin Oasis - Feet and Hands coated with heated Paraffin Wax, then a hydrating application applied. Feet and hands are left feeling rejuvenated.
Reflexology - Based on an ancient Chinese therapy, reflexology involves manipulation of specific reflex areas the foot, hands, and ears that correspond to other parts of the body. Sometimes referred to as zone therapy, this bodywork involves application of pressure to these reflex zones to stimulate body organs and relieve areas of congestion.
Reflexology Express - Feet are exfoliated, coated with Aroma oils and heated. Reflex points directly correspond to specific areas/organs of the body. Points help to assist with the body's natural healing ability very invigorating.
Rossiter System - An entirely new way of preventing & relieving pain in your body through hard, powerful, conscious TWO-PERSON stretching. Its different because it attacks the cause of pain: connective tissue that's become shortened & tightened from injury, overuse, trauma or repetitive use. It's built on the concept that the body has an innate system of "space" that allows it to move freely, without friction, tightness, stiffness or pain.
Shiatsu -Developed in Japan, shiatsu is a finger-pressure technique utilizing traditional acupuncture points. Similar to acupressure, shiatsu concentrates on unblocking the flow of life energy and restoring balance in the meridians and organs in order to promote self-healing.
Spa Therapies - A variety of body treatments administered in spas. Herbal wraps, loofah body scrubs, parafango, salt scrubs, seaweed body wraps.

Tennis Players Paradise - Improve Range of Motion and energy level. Targeting muscle group specific for Tennis Players. Deep Tissue Sport Massage and Parafango Mudd treatment.
Warm Stone Therapy - Warm stones encourage the exchange of blood and lymph and provide soothing heat for deep-tissue work. Stones are placed in varying positions on the body for energy balancing or may be used by the therapist for specific trigger-point work. The heat brings the entire body into the healing process, with a rapid exchange of blood and oxygen and alternating rise and fall of respiration rate as a the body seeks homeostasis.
Zesty Body Polish - A gentle but effective body exfoliator tailored by pure essential oils and salt to buff the body to smoothness. Perfect before a massage.
