Myofascial Dry Needling (MDN) is a relatively new and exciting form of treatment available to aid dysfunctions of the musculoskeletal system. During this therapy, super-fine filament needles (similar to those used in acupuncture), are inserted into the skin to directly affect the myofascial (muscles and fascia), with the aim of altering dysfunction that has developed. For example, dry needling is commonly used to deactivate hyperirritable areas in skeletal muscle known as trigger points or ‘knots’. Dry needling can help to restore healthy function to the effected tissues, helping you to feel better, more quickly.
Sports Massage with Cupping
The object of cupping is to draw more blood to the surface of the skin, using plastic cups that allow the therapist to remove the air by means of a pump mechanism. This gives more control over how much tissue is drawn up into the cup. In some cases, oil is massaged onto the skin so that the cup can be moved over the affected area easily. Oil also helps to create a better seal for the cup. Typically performed on the back and shoulders or thighs and butt, the suction technique works to shift the body’s energy, or Qi, in order to increase circulation, promote healing and relieve pain, as well as help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Because toxins are being pulled to the surface, discoloration or slight bruising may occur temporarily post-treatment. There will be a distinctive red circle left on the skin where the tissue has been pulled up. This will fade over the course of several days.
Sports Massage with Deep Blue Treatment
Full body massage with deep blue treatment gel to aid in the healing of inflamed tissue, aches and pains. Ideal for athletes, highly active people or if you suffer from chronic pain. Sports massage is a treatment given with the understanding not only of anatomy and physiology but also of the particular demands placed upon the body by the client and their specific sport.
Sports massage is done with the principal mandate of returning you to your desired sports activity with the same or an even better level of function. Sports massage will often utilise a variety of modalities such as remedial massage, trigger point therapy, cross fibre techniques and deep tissue work. Regular massage usually means those treatments primarily offered at beauty salons or spas. Both environments offer valid treatment for overworked, stressed muscles, however, sports massage and remedial massage differ in both its purpose and the techniques used. While nearly all massage therapists can perform regular massage, only those with specific sports massage skills are adequately equipped to perform a sports massage.
A combination of compression and stretching techniques is used on specific muscle groups targeted to help relieve discomfort or pain from over activity. A combination of movements & techniques are used to manipulate the tissues of the body, kneading, stretching, & pressure on the trigger points. The main benefit is that it improves the blood circulation & helps in eliminating the toxins such as lactic acid which accumulate in the body during exercising. Once the wastes get eliminated, the muscles of the body absorb the nutrients properly. This helps in enhancing the flexibility of the muscles, thus leading to faster recovery in between exercising & training sessions as well as reduction in any muscle pain that the athlete may be experiencing.

Hot Stone Massage
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. The heat can be both deeply relaxing and help warm up tight muscles so the therapist can work more deeply, more quickly. The warmth works by penetrating deep into the tissue, and the tools are used to work out the knots and relax you.
Relaxation / Swedish Massage

Custom Blended Aromatherapy Massage
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to promote healing and a feeling of well-being and relaxation in the recipient. It is a gentle but firm full body massage, taking in the back, chest, arms, legs, head and stomach. The oil is applied in long sweeping strokes which warm the skin and muscles and prepare the body for deep tissue massage. Once the muscles are warmed, your therapist will continue with deeper massage, rolling and squeezing the skin and underlying muscles between the hands.
During aromatherapy massage, the skin is warmed and the blood drawn to the surface, increasing circulation and encouraging the elimination of toxins from the body, which has the consequence of speeding up recovery time from any illness or injury. The manipulation of the muscles continues the process, whilst at the same time releasing tense knotted muscles by dispersing the build up of lactic acid which often occurs after exercise.
As the circulation increases, the oils are absorbed through the skin and carried round the body, allowing their healing effects to permeate to all the major body organs. By the time the massage is over you should be deeply relaxed, and feeling calm. Sometimes people even fall sleep.
The effects of an aromatherapy massage can last up to 48 hours, depending on the oils used. The skin may feel slightly greasy, but the overall effect is one of deep calm and relaxation. It is not recommended to drive or drink alcohol after massage. You may be feeling too sleepy to drive, and some oils can increase the effect of alcohol, making you feel lightheaded after only one drink.
Very often, the benefits are immediately noticeable after a massage, but over time, it may be noticed that underlying or long-term problems have also been eased by massage. A weekly massage is an excellent way to keep the body relaxed and free of toxins.
Reflexology is based on the concept that all the organs of the body are mapped to our feet (and hands). Reflexology applies finger pressure, some stretching and movement to pressure points on the feet with the goal of promoting healthy functioning of the body’s various organs.
Indian Head Massage
This form of massage works on the upper back, shoulders, upper arms, neck, scalp, ears and face. The areas are massaged using firm yet gentle, rhythmic movements that involve acupressure points called Marma points. Indian head massage is great for relieving the stress and tension in our everyday lives. The technique uses controlled movements and has a strong effect on the three higher chakras – the mind, body and spirit. The Chakra is the energy vortex that we need to remain striving and because the massage works on the neck and shoulders, tension is relieved almost instantly.
