Don’t forget … if you need to end the massage for any reason, just let the practitioner know that “I need to be done” and we are not offended; we got you.
Massage Techniques are all that we do to work with the physical, the soft tissue, the muscle - to manipulate, to move, to apply direct pressure; to stroke, to compress, to vibrate, etc.
-Deep Tissue Techniques: Soft tissue manipulation (massage techniques) at a deeper pressure than in other modalities: 5 to 7 on a scale of 1 to 10 is the range we are going for. This enables us to have deep releases within our being, increase blood flow until the skin turns pink which has many benefits, and release powerful amounts of pain and tension from the body.
-Manual Lymphatic Drainage: Using our physical hands and knowledge of the body's watersheds, we run them slowly up and down the body, moving the lymph through the cells to be cleared, excreted and redistributed throughout the body. MLD supports the release of swollen tissue and buildup of fluid in the body, often upon injury or illness and never necessary.
-Myofascial Release: Lengthening, stretching, loosening the fascia lines of the body. Here we are specifically working with the connective tissue that holds our bodies together, relieving tightness and supporting the neuromuscular system to loosen, relax, and restore.
-Swedish Massage (Flow): Soft tissue manipulation (massage techniques) at a light to medium pressure. It is lovely for circulating blood flow, activating the parasympathetic nervous system, healing joint pain, releasing muscle tension, deepening relaxation and brain waves. It consists of long strokes, "kneading" the muscle, compression and friction in shorter strokes and across the fibers, sometimes tapping, and sometimes rocking the body or a specific segment.
-Trigger Point Therapy: This is what most people are thinking of when they speak of "knots" in their muscles. These are places of neurological event, caused from repeated movement, and we can support the release of these tense spaces using direct pressure, deep tissue tools, and short small deep strokes.
Energy Work Techniques are all that we do to work with the smaller parts - the subtle bodies, the systems, the cells, inner body fluids, and more. Energy work uses feeling, temperature, pressure, intention and imagination to move energy throughout the body as needed for all chakras, organs, and systems to be operating optimally.
-Angel Healing + Healing with the Faeries: Working with clairaudience, voyance, sentience, cognizance, imagination, to create treatments for the body.
-Chakra Clearing and Balancing: Feeling into each chakra and determining how/where energy flows, balancing each center to operate optimally.
-Drumming & Singing Bowls: Helps with chakra balancing, drumming form foot to head releases stagnant energy, softly by the head activates theta brain waves, around the client's body supports a strong aura, and more.
-Light Code Transmission + Meditative Touch: Entering deep meditative states while working with the body to allow beautiful energy to flow from higher density and into the body. This may include dancing over the body with mudras, symbols, sacred geometry, allowing this "language" to uninhibitedly flow through.
Higher Self Treatments: Working with intention and speaking to that which is greater than us, we send energy into the body and activate it's natural healing capability.
Reflexology: Targeting points on the hands, feet, and ears that correlate to the organs and systems of the entire body.
Reiki: Targeting the life force within the cells to activate the body's self healing system.
Many of these frameworks involve: specific light rays, earth elements and colors, grids, healing emanation, lines of energy, and more creating treatments for the body.
When it comes to Floorwork, there is a lot we can do! For these sessions we use a squishy thai floor mat suited for our needs, Practice may include: Stretch Sessions (Therapist assisted stretching using holding, active and passive resistance), Shiatsu (Working with the meridian lines of the body, pushing and pulling on our energy lines until they are open and expressing unrestricted flow), Thai Massage (a mixture of stretching, breathwork, and energywork that looks as if we are "dancing" with the body), Tantric Practice (very similar to thai massage, with an increased focus in energy flow and ecstatic movement; a purely present moment), and any other form of Energywork not yet mentioned (can be performed floor or table). We also use the floor mat to enter the subconscious while practicing Intuitive Innervation and Subconscious Reprogramming, of which is a mixture of bodywork and the hypnogagic state.
Crystal and Stone Therapies
Both Crystal Therapy and Hot Stone Therapy uses stones to support the body's relaxation, stress release, and restorative abilities. Both use knowledge of Sacred Geometry, Meridian lines, Nadis, and Tsubo points. Stones are placed on the body and remain in place for some time while the body is worked on, with mostly Swedish technique, and choice of pressure is up to you. The hot stones open up the blood vessels and increase flow, allowing us to work out deep tension and buildup of stress within the body. The crystals each have their own distinctive properties and can be chosen and used to support specific organs, chakras, energy channels, and more. People who enjoy being esoteric can end a session as a human mandala and simply feel ... completely supported as you are.
