Cancer/Palliative Massage – A doctor’s clearance must be obtained before commencing Oncology massage treatment. These types of massage are commonly used as complementary therapy and are employed as part of cancer/palliative care. The massage is very gentle, lasting 10 – 20 minutes. The therapist asks for feedback during the treatment. Oncology massage improves quality of life, relieves physical discomfort and improves disposition.
Deep Tissue – Remedial Massage / Deep Tissue Massage concentrates on the deeper layers of muscle tissue. It aims to release the chronic patterns of tension in the body, through slow strokes and deep finger pressure on contracted areas, by either following or crossing over the muscle fibers, fascia and tendons. The techniques can include Trigger Point Therapy, deep tissue massage and stretching thereby creating an improved range of motion through the joints. This type of massage therapy addresses specific problems associated with chronic muscular pain, injury rehabilitation, sporting and occupational injuries, and physical and mental fatigue. It’s important to drink plenty of water after a deep-tissue session to help eliminate toxins from the body.
Hot Stone – Hot stone massage is a variation on classic massage therapy. Heated smooth, flat stones are either placed on key points on the body or used to massage certain areas of the body. The stones are immersed in water and heated in an electric heating device until they are within a certain temperature range. The stones may be placed at specific points on the back, in the palms of the hand, or between the toes. The heat warms and relaxes the muscles, which allows for deeper massage techniques to be applied if required.
