Regular massage treatments may be recommended if you suffer from muscle tension, stiffness or limited mobility in areas as will build towards prevention of further muscular issues.
INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE
Massage is the oldest form of medicine known to humans and has been practiced for thousands of years. The art of Indian Head Massage originated from Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine.
This Sanskrit word (Ayuurveda) can be translated as the “science of life” or “knowledge of life”. The Ayurvedic approach to health is the balance of body, mind and spirit and the promotion of long life.
Indian head massage is deeply relaxing and soothing. This treatment is ideal to combine with back, neck and shoulder massage or with Hopi Ear Candling.
DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE
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.When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. As this treatment is working deep into the underlying muscle it may cause discomfort momentarily however, it is most beneficial for those who have severe pain or discomfort.
Following the treatment you should feel very relaxed, increased mobility and have supple muscles.
HOPI EAR CANDLING
This is a deeply relaxing treatment and can be excellent in the treatment of sinus, ear ache, headaches, vertigo, compacted wax, tinnitus and stress.
The Hopi ear candle is lit and the essential oils infuse into the ear. Nothing is removed from the ear during the treatment but some may find a slight discharge from the ear afterwards as compacted ear wax may become lose and drain away.
