Deep Tissue massage addresses chronic aches and pain in contracted areas such as a stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.
At the beginning of the massage, lighter pressure is generally applied to warm up and prep the muscles. Specific techniques are then applied focusing pressure on deep layers of the muscles, tendons, and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles). Your therapist will apply firm pressure and slow strokes to reach deeper layers of muscle and fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

The Deepest, Most Luxurious, Hard to Find Massage in the Planet!
The first thing you may notice about Ashiatsu pronounced (ASHI-AT-SU) that is different from any other massage, is the two parallel bars that are mounted on the ceiling over the massage table.
The therapist uses these bars to balance herself while she uses her feet to perform long and deep strokes assisted by varying her pressure to your personal preference. In an Ashiatsu Massage the therapist uses the broad plane of her feet to free the body of any constrictions in the tissues. This modality is one of a kind, hard to find and we are proud to offer it as a specialty service at Massage Evolved. For a deep "heeling" experience request an Ashiatsu Massage!

So it is actually a "spiritually guided life force energy", which adjusts itself to individual needs. It is not a religion nor does it conflict with any religious beliefs.So it is actually a "spiritually guided life force energy", which adjusts itself to individual needs.

Reiki is powerful yet gentle.
It is a non-invasive, stress-free complementary therapy that heals at all levels; physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
Human beings are energy systems, so life energy is its most basic element.
We suffer when this energy is depleted due to illness and stress causing our bodies to become out of balance. The effect of receiving a Reiki session is that our supply of life energy is increased helping body, mind and spirit return to balance and wellness.
Reiki is natural and safe and can be used alone for some ailments or in conjunction with other medical and therapeutic techniques to relieve side-effects and promote recovery.
One need do nothing during a Reiki session but relax and enjoy the healing energy. There is no "negative" energy to be concerned with and it can only help. Reiki is currently being offered in over eight hundred hospitals across the USA.

Multi-Dimensional Transformational Healing (MDT)
New Paradigm multi-dimensional transformation or MDT for short is a system that is transformational.
Assisting people to become free from fear, to step into their power and live more and more from their true essence. This transformation has a healing effect on the individual that can have effects on a physical level, an emotional level and a psychological level.
The healings are done very simply by laying the hands on a person or by consciously transmitting the energy to that person over any distance.
Dis-ease means a lack of energy in a particular place in the body or in the totality of the body/mind/emotions/spirit and the Shamballa energy can rebalance these aspects and take a person from dis-ease to ease.
When the energy comes into the person's body and energy system, it creates a situation in that person which allows this balancing to take place, if they so will it.

Do you want to step into your power?
Do you miss the power of Love without conditions in yourself and your life?
Then maybe this energy is a way forward for you.
