Swedish Massage $75
Swedish massage uses five styles of strokes. The five basic strokes are effleurage (sliding or gliding), petrissage (kneading), tapotement (rhythmic tapping), friction (cross fiber or with the fibers) and vibration/shaking. Swedish massage has shown to be helpful in reducing pain, joint stiffness, and improving function in patients with osteoarthritis of the knee over a period of eight weeks. The development of Swedish massage is often inaccurately credited to Per Henrik Ling, though the Dutch practitioner Johann Georg Mezger applied the French terms to name the basic strokes. The term "Swedish" massage is actually only recognized in English and Dutch speaking countries, and in Hungary. Elsewhere (including Sweden) the style is referred to as "classic massage".
Deep Tissue $75
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage therapy but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).
Shiatsu (Kanji: 指圧 Hiragana: しあつ) in Japanese means "finger pressure". It is based on the concepts of "qi", "Meridian Lines" and the system of "five phases" (five-element theory) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Within this traditional medicine, a practitioner determines what he or believes is wrong with a person by abdominal palpitation and by pulse diagnosis. Unlike acupuncture and acupressure not only individual points are stimulated on the body, but the whole body is often stimulated, along the connecting "meridians", using finger and palm pressure, stretches, and other massage techniques. In addition, shiatsu also includes a variety of mobilization movements.
Shiatsu was derived from anma, which in turn is thought to have been developed from Tui Na, whose techniques arrived in Japan during the Nara period (710–793 CE). Tokujiro Namikoshi (1905-2000) founded his shiatsu college in the 1940s, and is often credited with inventing modern shiatsu.
Studies researching whether shiatsu is effective to treat any disease or condition have been poorly done, so there is no basis on which to claim that shiatsu is useful to treat any disease or condition.
Stone Therapy $75
Stones (usually basalt) are placed into an electric slow-cooker or a purpose-built device which is filled with water. The water is typically heated to 30-35 degrees Celsius (122-127 degrees Fahrenheit).
Once the stones have heated sufficiently, some are placed onto specific points on the body (such as the back, hands, etc.) and others are held by the massage therapist and used to work the muscles.
Certain styles of stone massage also incorporate chilled stones into the routine. These stones are usually marble, and are placed into a bowl of iced water before use.
Hands can be dipped in melted paraffin wax for softening and moisturizing. Paraffin wax is used because it can be heated to temperatures of over 95 °F (35 °C) without burning or injuring the hand. The intense heat allows for deeper absorption of emollients and essential oils. The wax is usually infused with various botanical ingredients such as Aloe vera, chamomile, tea tree oil and azulene. Fruit waxes such as peach, apple and strawberry are often used in salons. Paraffin wax treatments are often charged in addition to the standard As such, they are often a rare treatment in many salons.
Occasionally, lotion is rubbed on
