SWEDISH MASSAGE

INDIAN HEAD MASSAGE

REFLEXOLOGY

Swedish massage therapy is the modality that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is exceptionally beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension.

deep-tissue-massage

DEEP TISSUE MASSAGE

Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). A study in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that people’s blood pressure fell after a single 45 to 60 minute deep tissue massage. Additionally, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry found that massage modalities like deep tissue reduce stress hormone levels and heart rate while boosting mood and relaxation by triggering the release of oxytocin and serotonin.

THAI MASSAGE

Thai massage is believed to have been developed by Jivaka Kumar Bhaccha, physician to Buddha, more than 2,500 years ago in India. It made its way to Thailand, where the Ayurvedic techniques and principles gradually became influenced by traditional Chinese medicine. For centuries, Thai massage was performed by monks as one component of Thai medicine.Thai massage is more energizing and rigorous than more classic forms of massage. Thai massage is also called Thai yoga massage, because the therapist uses his or her hands, knees, legs, and feet to move you into a series of yoga-like stretches. Many people say Thai massage is like doing yoga without any work. Muscle compression, joint mobilization, and acupressure are also used during treatment. People describe Thai massage as both relaxing and energizing.

CHOCOLATE MASSAGE

Interestingly while chocolate spells disaster for dieters it reacts quite remarkably in an opposite manner when applied on the skin! Yes, it induces Natural Slimming through the presence of Theobromine, which is similar to caffeine and produces a slimming effect on the body, helps burn fat and diminish cellulite. Another surprise is that chocolate therapies are anti-aging as chocolate contains Polyphenols that are known for their anti-oxidant properties. Also Chocolates have Glycerides which deliver moisturizing lipids and fats to plump and firm the skin. This firms and moisturises the skin resulting in that dream come true baby soft skin. Moreover chocolate therapies improve skin texture as chocolate contains various minerals like magnesium, potassium and calcium that are necessary for healthy cell growth & renewal.

The Indian head massage, also known by the portmanteau “champissage” (chämpi—the Indian word for massage + massage), is based on the ancient Ayurvedic form of healing that dates back almost 4,000 years. It works the upper three chakras: vishuddha, ajna, and sahasrara, [1] and can be used for physical harmony, for healing, for vitality, and for good, old-fashioned relaxation. No wonder it’s becoming so popular in the west.

lomi-lomi-massage

HAWAIIAN LOMI LOMI MASSAGE

Lomilomi, meaning “massage therapist” in the Hawaiian language, is the word used today to describe Hawaiian massage, traditionally called lomi, meaning “to rub, press, squeeze, massage; to work in and out, as the claws of a contented cat”. Lomilomi is a holistic healing tradition beyond simple massage. Perhaps this can best be understood by one of the alternate names for LomiLomi, and that is “Loving Hands” massage. The reason for this is that it works gently yet deeply into the muscles with continuous, flowing strokes, totally nurturing the body and, enabling the recipient to relax, give in and simply be.

Face-Massage

FACE MASSAGE

We may have had facial massage as part of a salon facial. Feels great, right? The beauty of it, though, is that you can take advantage of the health benefits of a face massage at home (or anywhere), even just to relax when you’re stressed out. As skin ages, it loses elasticity and firmness. Massage won’t reverse the ageing process but it can boost blood flow, adding a healthy glow while nourishing skin and facial muscles. It can also speed removal of toxins, which play havoc with skin texture, and it tones and lifts muscles to give a youthful look.

SPA-FACIAL

SPA FACIAL

There’s no better way to pamper you and get some much-needed relaxation than to book an appointment for a facial. A facial has benefits which are aesthetic as well as psychological. Not only does it improve the look of the skin, it also takes that back-breaking stress off your shoulders

hotstone-therapy

Body-scrup-and-wrap-massage

BODY SCRUB AND WRAP

Body scrub and wraps were originally a treatment where Ace bandages or plastic wrap was tightly wrapped around the body to cause quick weight loss through vasodilation. You can still find these types of “slimming” body wraps, which result in the temporary loss of weight and inches, at some spas. But today a body wrap in a spa is more likely to be treatment where you’re slathered with a body mask made of algae, seaweed, mud, clay, lotion or cream, then wrapped for 20 minutes to keep you warm. Later the product is rinsed off. The body wrap usually ends with an application of lotion (technically not a massage). This body wrap treatment is sometimes called a body cocoon or body mask.

manicure-pedicure

MANICURE AND PEDICURE

Among many cosmetic treatments we can get from a beauty salon, we will explain a notion of service called manicure & pedicure. In broader sense, manicure is a type of treatment which is targeted an area like your hand. When you order this service, manicure will incorporate cuticles and the fingernails as well as some other treatment like nail polish. On the other hand, pedicure is targeted your feet, which incorporates the softening and the toenails, as well as removal of calluses. So in the end, body treatment is a term that not merely connected with types of service which will enhance the appearance of your hair or your face. Given the fact on which manicure and pedicure are existed, it is safer to assume that you will get more beauty if you also hire such service when you come to a beauty salon.
