INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
This is an Ayurvedic form of healing and relaxation used to ease tension and balance energy. You will experience a great sense of calm while anxiety and stress fade away. The technique uses detailed attention to the pressure points of the face, head and neck to re-balance your natural energy rhythm. It’s beneficial for relief from eye strain, tinnitus, jaw ache, tension headache, and neck and shoulder discomfort.
This is combination of Cranial Sacral, SCS and Reflexology for total body benefit. Cranial Sacral restores rhythmic flow to the head, spine and pelvis while unwinding constricted fascia. SCS is a neuromuscular positional release technique to gently release constrictions in muscle and restrictions and inflammation in the lymphatic and venous systems. Reflexology helps to balance the nervous, endocrine, circulatory, and lymphatic systems by applying pressure to reflex points on the feet, which correspond to organs and glands in the body.
Capture the benefits of yoga without doing it. As the practitioner gently moves you into yoga-like poses, tight joints are opened, energy flows freely and breathing is enhanced. A meditative state becomes part of the process, as both you and the practitioner focus on breath and intention. Pranassage is great introduction of how yoga works with the body and how your body will respond.
Gently heal and balance life energies to relax and ease stress. Reiki is a healing practice that helps you feel more connected by balancing the energy centers and chakras of the body. The recipient is fully clothed for the session. Reiki can aid pain management and relaxation in patients with cancer and a history of heart attacks.
Great for those new to bodywork. The client is fully clothed, and no oil is used. A combination of deep pressure along your tight areas and stretching allowing discomfort to melt away. You relax while your body is moved in a variety of stretches with special attention devoted to the neck, shoulders, back and hips. This technique has a strong belief in applying pressure to the energy lines of the body allowing for optimum health through balancing energy flow.
