Relax and enjoy the benefits of massage and bodywork. Offering you a blend of modalities and a friendly, caring atmosphere where you can reestablish your sense of well-being.
Integrative Swedish Relaxation
Relax and enjoy a soothing massage reestablishing your sense of wellness. Swedish massage involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the massage. The benefits of Swedish massage include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation, stress reduction, decreased muscle tension and improved range of motion.
Therapeutic Deep Tissue
Deep tissue massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronically tense and contracted areas such as stiff necks, low back tightness, and sore shoulders. Some of the same strokes are used as classic massage, but the movement is slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain.
Myofascial Release (MfR)
Myofascial Release is a very effective hands-on technique that provides sustained pressure into myofascial restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential "time element" has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.Trauma, inflammatory responses, and/or surgical procedures create Myofascial restrictions that can produce tensile pressures. Each Myofascial Release Treatment session is performed directly on skin without oils, creams or machinery. This enables the therapist to accurately detect fascial restrictions and apply the appropriate amount of sustained pressure to facilitate release of the fascia.
Hot Stone Therapy
An invitation to the lush and warming benefits of therapeutic Hot Stone Massage. It's a powerful unique therapy that works in harmony with various massage techniques. Water-heated basalt stones of varying sizes relax your body to its deepest level. The direct heat relaxes the muscles, allowing manipulation of a greater intensity than with regular massage. The healing stone experience relieves pain, promotes harmony, balance and peace.

Reiki - Massage (New)
Combining Reiki and massage therapy has a synergistic effect that each enhances the effects of the other, and together, they can produce a remarkable experience. Mainly is working for the most part intuitively and in the moment, using the intelligence of Reiki and the energies of the Reiki symbols, and how they can be integrated into different approaches. Sometimes might be used trigger point work or acupressure points. Reiki helps to open, penetrate blockages and soften dense tissue and warms the client up for deeper work. Both modalities are integrated simultaneously, either sending Reiki through a hand that is also engaged in a Swedish massage stroke, compression and friction, or sending Reiki through one hand resting lightly on the body or just above it, while the other hand is engaged in a Swedish massage stroke.
Reiki Healing Sessions
Reiki Healing Sessions.
What is a Reiki Session like?
Reiki is administered through the hands of a Reiki practitioner with the client lying fully clothed on a massage table. A session usually last between 45 minutes to an hour and a half and shorter sessions are also possible. The practitioner will begin by explaining Reiki to you and what she will be doing. Your safety and comfort are always the main consideration. If at any time during the session you have any concerns you should let your practitioner know so that appropriate adjustments can be made. The Reiki practitioner places his or her hands at locations around the head and shoulders, the abdomen and on the legs and feet. Tissue is not manipulated. The practitioner's hands are simply held at each locationm lightly touching or slightly away from the body. Reiki energy flows from the practitioner's hands and into the client's body energy field. A Reiki session feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that surrounds and fils the client and includes feelings of relaxation, peace and well-being that also promote healing. After a Reiki session the practitioner share with the client her feeback. Sometimes part of the healing process takes part during the previous and after session' exchanged information/ feedback.
Benefits of Reiki
Reiki energy allows muscles to relax and increases blod flow to treated areas, which in turn quickens the healing process. Practitioners and clients report help with stress, headaches, insomnia, upset stomach, sprains and other minor conditions. Occasionaly, miraculous results are reported. Reiki also promotes psychological healing, including release of anger, fear, worry, sadness and other unhealthy feelings, and replaces them with self-worth, confidence and tranquility.
Reiki Healing Session
A Reiki session is an individualized experience that is relaxing, gentle, and safe for all. It involves healing in a way that will empower you while respecting your feelings and choices. Reiki energy speeds the healing process most needed by the individual receiving the treatment. Reiki works with the human energy field, restoring order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced. Reiki wisdom energy has several basic effects: it brings about deep relaxation, unlock possible energy blockages, detoxifies the body system, provides new vitality in the form of healing universal life energy, and increases the vibration frequency of the body.
Reiki Chakra balancing with Crystals
Chakras are the energy centers within the body. Pronounced "chock- rah" which means disk or wheel. These energy centers are the basis of the human energetic structure and influence our physical and emotional states. Each chakra vibrates at a specific frequency and corresponds to the endocrine system of the body. Reiki is a strong balancing source for the chakras when they become blocked or stagnant, preventing the healthy flow of energy. Crystals used during Reiki Healing will help the healing and energy balancing the whole chakra system. They will speed up the healing process by placing them of the appropiate colour on each area.
Reiki Healing Attunement and Session
It is a Reiki treatment with a healing attunement. The healing attunement uses the same high-frequency energies used in the initiations, but only for healing. This process opens a spiritual door through which powerful, higher-frequency Reiki energies are able to flow and through which the Reiki guides can work more effectively. Because the healing attunements do not initiate a person into Reiki, they can be given to anyone and are especially useful prior to a regular Reiki treatment.
Reiki for children
Reiki can be beneficial for kids and even teenagers. It helps in dealing with stresses of body and mind. They should have a balanced body and find easiness for taking any sort of tests or activities. Reiki can help in energy balancing and calming emotions stuck in depression or anxiety state. Reiki can provide several benefits for children, mainly for the ones having different challenges. Reiki can reduce pains, promote healing and reduce any side effects of the treatments going on in a person. Reiki gives a loving therapy and responds a person with smile.
Distance Reiki Healing Session
Distance Reiki is a wonderful option for people who cannot come in and lay down for a hand on Reiki session, or for people that are ill or living in different location. Reiki can be sent to a person, animal, situation time or place. A Reiki Master has the ability to send healing to you. Sending Reiki is possible because energy is not confined and can transcend time and space so it is easily transmitted anywhere. After you contact by phone to discuss what your needs are for the healing session, a specific time and date to do the session will set up. Reiki will be sent to you. If possible, you should be resting in a quite comfortable place. It will be a after follow up by e-mail or call to discuss the Distance Reiki session.
