HOT STONE MASSAGE



Hot stone massage therapy melts away tension, eases muscle stiffness and increases circulation and metabolism.

Each one hour hot stone massage therapy session promotes deeper muscle relaxation through the placement of smooth, water-heated stones at key points on the body. Lyn also incorporate a customized massage, with the use of hot stones which offers enhanced benefits.

The premise behind hot stone massage therapy is that the direct heat of the stones relaxes muscles, allowing the therapist access to their deeper muscle layers. Combining hot stone protocols with a full body massage provides a very healing and effective experience. The hot stones also expand blood vessels, which encourages blood flow throughout the body. The hot stones have a sedative effect that can relieve chronic pain, reduce stress and promote deep relaxation.

Benefits of Hot Stone Massage:

Provides relief from pain associated with fibromyalgia, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and other chronic conditions
Decreases pain and muscle spasms
Reduces chronic stress and tension
Increases flexibility in joints, aiding in easier mobility and movement
Relieves pain and tension created by strained and contracted muscles

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep-tissue massage is a specific type of massage therapy that concentrates on the deep layers of muscle and fascia in the body; and recommended by many doctors as a treatment option. By using deep finger pressure and slow, firm strokes, deep tissue massage is used to treat a variety of physical ailments.

Reduces Chronic Pain

The University of Maryland Medical Center reports that deep-tissue massage is more effective and affordable for relieving chronic pain than conventional medical remedies. Because deep-tissue massage increases the flow of blood through through the body, it helps reduce the inflammation that causes pain. Deep-tissue massage can also help alleviate muscle tension that is often a side effect of chronic pain by loosening the tight tissue clusters.


Improves Blood Pressure

Deep-tissue massage helps ease stress and tension, which can have a beneficial effect on blood pressure. People who had a deep-tissue massage saw their systolic pressure drop by an average of 10.4 mm Hg and their diastolic pressure drop an average 5.3 mm Hg, according to a study cited by the University of Maryland Medical Center. Deep-tissue massage can help increase the body's production of serotonin, the hormone that promotes happiness and good feelings.

Myofascial Decompression (Cupping)

The therapy of cupping has been used in China for thousands of years.
Evidence of myofascial treatment using negative pressure cupping has evidence dating as far back as 281 AD. It has been used treatment of illness, wounds, skin grafts and for musculoskeletal pain and stiffness. Most manual therapy techniques like massage, myofascial release and joint mobilization are compressive in nature. Myofascial decompression with cupping uses negative pressure to decompress adhesions, spots where the connective tissue is stuck, to allow a better flow for improved nutrient exchange. The pressure will cause and ischemic (low blood) response causing increased blood flow to the area to help with healing.

As Lyn is very expreienced, you can undergo this treatmnt without bruising.

Myofascial Release

 

Myofascial release (MFR) therapy focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness. There are a number of conditions and symptoms that myofascial release therapy addresses.

Many patients seek myofascial treatment after losing flexibility or function following an injury or if experiencing ongoing back, shoulder, hip, or virtually pain in any area containing soft tissue.

Other conditions treated by myofascial release therapy include Temporo-Mandibular Joint (TMJ) disorder, carpal tunnel syndrome, or possibly fibromyalgia or migraine headaches. Patient symptoms usually include:

Tightness of the tissues that restricts motion or pulls the body out of alignment, causing individuals to favor and overuse one hip or shoulder, for example
A sense of excessive pressure on muscles or joints that produces pain
Pain in any part or parts of the body, including headache or back pain.

Cost: 35 euro

Reflexology

Reflexology is the application of appropriate pressure to specific points and areas on the feet, hands, or ears. Reflexologists believe that these reflex points correspond to different body organs and systems, and that pressing them has a beneficial effect on the person's health.

For example, reflexology holds that a specific spot in the arch of the foot corresponds to the bladder. When a reflexology practitioner uses thumbs or fingers to apply appropriate pressure to this area, it may affect bladder functioning.

Although reflexology is not used to diagnose or cure health disorders, millions of people around the world use it to complement other treatments when addressing conditions like anxiety, asthma, cancer treatment, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, headaches, kidney function, PMS, and sinusitis.

Korean Hand Therapy (click to enlarge)

Korean Hand Therapy(KHT) is also called ‘Korean Sooji Chim', ‘Korean Hand
Acupuncture' or ‘Soojichim'. KHT(Korean Hand Therapy) theorizes that the hands are a
micro-cosmos of the body.
The function of the human body can be manipulated by stimulating the corresponding
points on our hands.
According to the theory of Korean Hand Therapy', there are 14 micro- meridians and 345 acupuncture points on our hands which regulate the internal organs of the human body.

These acupuncture points may be stimulated by using the following instruments : Hand Needles, Seoam PressPellets, Seaom Moxa, E- beam, Magnets, KHT Silver Ring, or Cyber Hand Therapy (mind vibration).


Thus the physiological function of the entire body can be regulated by stimulating these acupuncture points on the hands.


The theory of Korean Hand Therapy was first originated, studied and developed by The Korean acupuncturist, Dr. Tae Woo Yoo between 1971 and 1975. Since that time Korean Hand Therapy has spread to the public worldwide.
Korean Hand Therapy is a scientific medical system that is performed without any side effects or danger to the patient.

Cost: From 20 euro when combined with reflexology or other therapies.
