The elemental Massage is my signature service. A combination of the healing modalities I specialize in. If you only want to expierence this combination on your back then book an hour session, however for the full body expierence try a 90 minute session.
Elemental refers to the ancient idea of elements as fundamental building blocks of nature. This service can also referred to as the Captain Planet Massage. The elements are fire, earth, air, water, & Spirit/Heart. Our signature m massage starts with a combination Reiki and Myofascial Release. Then we flow into hot rocks , massage cupping, & aromatherapy.
Fire, represents the energetic, forceful, moving things in the world. The apparent examples are heat and flame used during Massage Cupping. A practitioner lights a cotton ball soaked with alcohol and inserts it into the cup to create the vacuum. Then removes the cotton ball and inverts the cup onto the body. By creating suction and negative pressure, cupping is used to: drain excess fluids & toxins, loosen adhesions and lift connective tissue, bring blood flow to stagnant skin & muscles and stimulate the peripheral nervous system.
Wind, represents things that grow, expand, and enjoy freedom of movement. Myofascial Release bodywork releases facia restrictions that restrict our movements, energy, and lymphatic fluids. John F. Barnes’ MFR is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the fascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion
Earth, represents the hard, solid objects of the world. The most basic example of chi is in a stone. We start with a hot rock massage to warm up the muscles, soften tissues, increase circulation and provide comfort and relaxation. Hot Stone Massage combines the proven benefits of Swedish massage with deep heat and pressure provided by using warm basalt stones
Water, represents the fluid, flowing, formless things in the world. Outside the obvious example such as rivers, plants are also categorized under water. The session enahnced with a aromatherapy treatment. Essential oilblends immediately after the cupping will enable the absorption of the product deep into the tissue. Massage Cupping increases local blood supply to the muscles & skin will bring nourishment and allow for toxins to be carried away.
Spirit (Heart),Spirit represents the prime element present in all things, providing space, connection, and balance for all elements to exist. It is a kind of super element; the binding force between the other elements. It represents the human spirit and the energy of God. During your service you’ll be receiving Reiki. Reiki is a healing technique where the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient’s body and restore physical and emotional well-being.
