REFLEXOLOGY Ingham Technique Certified
Based upon the ancient theory that all organs and glands have corresponding reflexes in the feet, hands and ears, reflexology focuses on the systematic stimulation of reflex points to bring the whole body holistically into balance. The therapist reduces tension and fatigue in the feet, while helping to eliminate toxins and impurities. And though attention is focused primarily on the feet, reflexology work can indeed be felt throughout the entire body. At InnEssence Therapy, every reflexology session begins with a foot bath enhanced by organic aromatic salts.
THAI YOGA THERAPY Navina Certified
Restore Your Body And Relax Your Mind
Thai yoga therapy opens the body to encourage deep relaxation through breath awareness, gentle yoga stretches, rocking motions and different soft tissue manipulation techniques (massage, fascial release, chopping, and many more.)
The massage relieves tightness, pain and anxiety, improves circulation and flexibility, and creates an overall sense of balance and wellbeing.
The recipient just relaxes while the body is gradually opened towards a comfortable edge. The therapist adjusts the appropriate pressure, gentle and passive or deep and vigorous based on the client needs and preferences. To facilitate the stretching process, the therapist has the client lie on a Thai mattress placed on the floor and uses the likes of pillows and blankets for additional support. As such, the client is highly recommended to wear loose-fitting clothing, such as a short-sleeved t-shirt and knee-length shorts or athletic pants. In contrast to other massage styles, Thai yoga massage notably does not use any lotion or oil.
SWEDISH - Soothing, Relaxing & Healing
One of the most common forms of massage today, Swedish massage relies on a variety of techniques but is generally characterized by long, gliding strokes that help return blood to the heart. The therapist relieves muscle tension by kneading, percussive tapping, shaking and stretching. Swedish massage’s popularity is easily explained by its array of benefits, which includes increased oxygen in the blood stream, improved flexibility and circulation, reduction in toxins in the body, and the relief of tension.
