Massage therapy was first used in emotional and physical healing 4000 years ago!  While the practice has ancient roots, it's as relevant to maintaining whole health today as ever before.  Our ancestors may not have understood the science behind the practice, but they felt the effects and believed in the benefits. Here's the scientific scoop: When a practitioner manipulates the muscle tissue, energy is transmitted to that local area and throughout the body. Combined with the healing properties of touch, it helps heal damaged muscle, stimulate circulation and clear waste products through the lymphatic system. As a result, this chain of events boosts the immune system, reduces pain and tension, and induces a calming effect. In addition, massage stimulates the release of natural painkillers and mood elevators and decrease certain stress hormone levels, all of which enhance well-being. And we can all use some of that!

Massage Cupping (for edema, injury and recovery)                                                                                                

Massage combined with a modified version of "cupping therapy" used in Traditional Chinese Medicine is an effective way of loosening hypertonic muscle, myofascial adhesions and scar tissue, and relieving inflammation and lymph build-up. Healing is promoted by pulling "stagnation" (stale blood, lymph, cellular debris, toxins) from deep within unhealthy muscle, allowing healthy blood and nutrients to flow back in. In cases of severe stagnation, it is not uncommon for discoloration or a "cup kiss" to be visible in the treated area. It is a harmless side effect that can last for a couple hours to a few days as the body cleans and expels the waste through its system. Weekend warriors love this treatment!

Aloha Massage

This Hawaiian style of massage (Lomi Lomi) is given in fluid, rhythmic motion using the forearms and hands, reminiscent of gentle waves moving over the body. A special feature of this style is that different parts of the body may be massaged at the same time. This assists the recipient in totally relaxing because it is very difficult for the brain to focus on the two different areas at once. By not working on areas in isolation, the mind relaxes and the whole body unwinds. The intention of the treatment is to restore harmony and balance.
