Description of Massage Treatments

Special Populations Massage

What do pregnant women, athletes, geriatric clients; people with HIV/AIDS, cancer, and survivors of trauma and abuse have in common? All of these special populations have been found to find the benefit of wellbeing from massage therapy.

Geriatric massage is a form of massage designed to meet the specific needs of seniors. It involves the use of hands to manipulate the soft tissues of the body to improve blood circulation, relieve pain, and increase range of motion. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of geriatric massage all with a bit of a lighter touch.

Oncology Massage – the modification of existing massage therapy techniques in order to safely work with complications of cancer and cancer treatment. Oncology massage helps improve quality of life. Benefits include improved relaxation, sleep, and immune function as well as relieving anxiety, pain, fatigue and nausea.

All of this and Epsom salts to take home.
Why Epsom Salts? Drinking water will help flush these toxins out, but you still may feel achy and sore for 24-48 hours after your massage. Epsom salts taken as a bath promotes perspiration and draws acidic wastes – mainly uric acid – through the pores of the skin. This all helps to relieve pain. This bath also sedates the nervous system, reduces swelling, relaxes muscles, is a natural emollient, exfoliator, and much more.
