DEEP TISSUE

Based on the Ida Rolf system of Structural Integration, many postural problems can be improved or corrected by lengthening the body’s connective tissues over a period of time.

FACILITATED STRETCHING

ACU-CUPPING

A modality used in traditional Chinese medicine in which a cup is applied to the skin by reducing the pressure inside the cup and creating a suction. The technique increases the local circulation of blood and lymph, stretches muscle tissue, loosens adhesions and scar tissue for treatment of acupressure points, myofacial restrictions, and trigger points.

THAI MASSAGE

Traditional Thai massage uses no oils or lotions. The recipient remains clothed during a treatment. There is constant body contact between the giver and receiver, but rather than rubbing on muscles, the body is compressed, pulled, stretched and rocked.

The recipient wears loose, comfortable clothing and lies on a mat or firm mattress on the floor. In Thailand, a dozen or so subjects may be receiving massage simultaneously in one large room. The true ancient style of the massage requires that the massage be performed solo with just the giver and receiver. The receiver will be positioned in a variety of yoga-like positions during the course of the massage, that is also combined with deep static and rhythmic pressures.

The massage generally follows designated lines ("sen") in the body. The legs and feet of the giver can be used to position the body or limbs of the recipient. In other positions, hands fix the body, while the feet do the massaging. A full Thai massage session may last two hours and includes rhythmic pressing and stretching of the entire body. This may include pulling fingers, toes, ears, cracking knuckles, walking on the recipient's back, and moving the recipient's body into many different positions. There is a standard procedure and rhythm to the massage, which the giver will adjust to fit the receiver.
