Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a technique focusing on the deeper layers of muscles.
This massage helps to reduce chronic muscle tension, break down scar tissue, release toxins, and get blood and oxygen circulating properly.
Sports Injury Massage
Regular treatments can help reduce the chance of injury by relieving stress in the muscles before they become restricted, and can improve range of motion flexibility.
Once injured, massage can speed healing and reduce muscle spasms, as well as pain in both injured muscle and the compensatory muscles.
Bowen is a "head to toe" physical treatment that pomotes self-healing. Bowen signals the body to rest and de-flame painful, muscles, joints, nerves and tendons.
Bowen addresses the body as a whole unit rather than just the presenting smptoms. The human body can often achieve self-healing with minimal outside influences.
During a Bowen session, the client lies on the table and relaxes while the therapist applies a series of gentle movements across the body. Although the movements are gentle, Bowen achieves substantial, rapid and lasting relief.
Many conditions need no more than 3-5 sessions, but clients often feel results after the first treatment. Treatments are usually scheduled at 7 day intervals.
