The primary goal of Swedish Massage is to promote relaxation and increase blood circulation. Pressure can be adjusted based on your preference.
The purpose of Deep Tissue Massage is to address postural deviations and specific muscles to relieve tension. Deep Tissue Massage, when received regularly, is often used to treat chronic pain due to muscle tightness and to aid healing.
Hot Stone Massage incorporates a full body Swedish or Deep Tissue Massage with heated basalt stones to assist relaxation.
Reiki is a "laying on of hands" technique used to assist in healing and restore balance in the body. Weak or frail people who cannot receive massage treatments would benefit from Reiki because there are no gliding or kneading strokes; the therapist's hands are placed directly on or above the area being worked on. This treatment is also ideal for those who are very modest as clients remain fully clothed throughout the session.
