Different types of massage

Swedish Relaxation Massage Swedish massage is a massage technique that works on cleansing the tissues of lactic acid, uric acid, and other bodily wastes. It increases circulation without increasing heart load. It stretches the ligaments and tendons keeping them flexible and pliable. This technique stimulates the skin and nervous system, yet it induces a calm and relaxed response from the nervous system. Swedish massage is very effective in reducing emotional and physical stress, and maintaining proper circulation for tissue health.   Deep Tissue Massage Deep Tissue Massage is a massage technique that focuses on releasing the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to break up chronic structural imbalances and patterns of tension in the body caused by injury or poor biomechanics. This technique is applied through slow strokes and deep pressure on the contracted areas, either following or going across the fiber direction of muscles, tendons and fascial tissue. Foot Reflexology Foot reflexology is a simple, non-invasive method to help balance the body. It has been described as a natural therapy that requires the application of a specific type of pressure on particular areas of the feet. It is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the feet which correspond to every part of the body. Reflexology serves to relax, improve circulation and promote a general feeling of wellness. Reflexology has been practiced for thousands of years in such places as China, Egypt, and India. In North America, it was Dr. William Fitzgerald, an ear, nose and throat specialist, who first introduced 'zone therapy' around the early 1900s.   Tui Na (Chinese massage) Literally meaning 'push and grasp', tui na is closely related to acupuncture in its use of the meridian system and is considered to be effective for a similar range of health problems. Techniques such as kneading, pressing, rolling, joint range of motion and joint traction are used to unblock areas with restricted flow and promote energy circulation through the meridian and muscle systems. It is an effective and comprehensive therapy and is regarded alongside herbs, diet, Qi gong and one of the fundamental arts of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Visceral Manipulation "Viscera" relates to the internal organs of the body, such as the liver, kidneys and intestines. Visceral Manipulation is a gentle manual therapy that aids your body's ability to release restrictions and unhealthy compensations that cause pain and dysfunction. Visceral Manipulation, or VM, does not focus solely on the site of pain or dysfunction, but evaluates the entire body to find the source of the problem. The VM therapist feels for altered or decreased motion within the viscera, as well as restrictive patterns throughout the body and then applies VM techniques. VM therapy re-establishes the body's ability to adapt and restore itself to health. Cranio-Sacral Therapy The craniosacral system includes the brain, spinal cord, vertebrae, cerebrospinal fluid and its surrounding tissue. Cerebrospinal fluid circulates rhythmically through this system and supplies nutrition for optimum health. Craniosacral therapy uses gentle manipulations and pressure to assist, restore and balance the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, inducing self correction in the body. Craniosacral dysfunction is the result of all past emotional and physical traumas to the body.
