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.
ASHIATSU - Deep Tissue
Derived from the Japanese words ashi (foot) and atsu (pressure), ashiatsu is a unique deep-tissue massage where the therapist uses her bare feet on the client. By skillfully holding onto overhead bars, the therapist relies on her body weight and the force of gravity to deliver a gentle yet deep massage through her feet. Devotees of Ashiatsu describe it as a truly luxurious experience.
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.
