Shiatsu Massage is an alternative technique that involves manual pressure applied to specific points on the body in an attempt to relieve tension and pain. According to the Japanese healing treatment, Shiatsu (meaning finger pressure) massage uses thumbs, fingers, elbows, and knees to concentrate pressure at certain energy pathways in the body called meridians. The massage also known as acupressure works to reduce muscle tension and fatigue and is thought to improve blood circulation in the body as well as improve function of the lymphatic system.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
Neuro lymphatic massage
This therapeutic massage is based upon the knowledge of reflexes. Reflexes are nerve endings located at different areas of the body, which stimulate the proper functioning of organs and tissues. Through this very precise and orderly massage, using Dr. Chapman’s neurolymphatic points, all body structures are stimulated to cleanse and purge toxins and all substances foreign to the body. Different effects can be expected from obtaining natural states of deep relaxation; cleansing allergies; purging cellulites from the tissues; etc.; up to releasing twisted or out of place bones and joints to their natural state of being and bringing disabled muscles to their proper functions. Continuous treatments (every 48 hrs) with this massage can lead to deep purification of all liquids in the body - lymph and blood, to improved immune function, blood circulation, digestion, assimilation and elimination. The inner and outer states of the body feel and appear simply sparkling.
