Therapeutic Massage is a combination of Relaxation Massage and Remedial Massage to not only relax your whole body but at the same time, work through some of the muscle issues or “tight spots” you may be experiencing.
Massage therapy may also improve your circulation, which enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to muscle cells and helps remove waste products or reduce swelling. These circulatory effects of massage may have value in the treatment of some inflammatory conditions, such as arthritis.
Massage therapy induces a relaxation response, which lowers your heart rate, breathing rate, and blood pressure; plus boosts your immune system; and generally decreases the physical effects of stress.
Lava Shell Massage
Lava shells are heated by single-use disposable sachets. The therapist inserts a sachet of algae, minerals and dried sea kelp into the shell, then adds an activator liquid. The chemical reaction between the activator and the “lava gel” sachet creates heat that can last up to a couple of hours.
Zoe will begin the treatment with an application of massage oil to help make the strokes smoother. She will then press the heated Lava Shells onto key points of your body to relax your muscles, before using the smooth part of the shells to massage your torso and limbs.
Zoe uses different areas of the Lava Shells to complement particular massage strokes. The knob on the back of the shell can be used to work away at tight knots. The smooth surface of the shell is ideal for applying gentle pressure to calves and arms, and you might feel the therapist using the narrow edge of the Lava Shell to work around tense shoulder blades or between your toes.
Sports/Deep Tissue Massage
Sports/Deep Tissue massage is a form of massage involving the (usually strong/firm) treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia. It is designed to assist in correcting problems and imbalances in the body caused from repetitive and strenuous physical activity and trauma. The application of sports/deep tissue massage, prior to and after exercise, may enhance performance, aid recovery and prevent injury.
