Massage therapy is a series of hands-on techniques used to alleviate many areas of stress and tension in one’s body. Massage therapy helps to bring nutrition to muscles by increasing blood supply and cleansing the body from everyday stress, injury, illness or grief. The movements utilized in a session can help to ease stiffness and discomfort in joints and muscles, and improve one’s sense of well being.

Many physical rehabilitation programs recognize and incorporate Massage therapy for chronic conditions, including back and neck pain, arthritis, fatigue, diabetes, depression, and more.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy-

The Lymphatic Drainage technique involves the use of slow, rhythmic hands-on movements that are extremely gentle and light. These movements are designed to aid the circulation of body fluids, stimulate immune system function, and promote the stability of the body’s internal chemistry. The end result is efficient reduction of waste and fluids trapped in the tissues. This treatment is exceptionally beneficial for post-surgical patients to reduce swelling and bruising.

The first treatment usually results in 6-12 hours of relief, the second usually allows 2-3 days relief and a third 4-6 days of relief. Then maintenance of 1 time per week is beneficial until the symptoms subside. This is an excellent treatment for allergy sufferers, as well as cold congestion.

Parafango Wrap-

This wrap is specially formulated with seaweed, warm paraffin and natural sea mud to stimulate the lymphatic flow of the body. The warming minerals found in the mix allow the pores of the skin to open fully encouraging the elimination of toxins and absorption of natural amino-oils. The process begins with a brief exfoliation followed by an application of oils geared toward firming tissues or encouraging cellulite reduction. The body is then painted with the parafango and wrapped in heated blankets for 15-20 minutes. The treatment is then completed with a brief application of firming cream. The result… deeply moisturized and toned skin.
