Deep Tissue

Releases tension in the deeper layers of the muscles, it also relieves tenderness and fatigue associated with stress, and promotes healthy muscles. Healthy muscles can prevent injuries. Different techniques will be customized to suit your individual needs.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective hands-on technique that involves applying gentle sustained pressure into the Myofascial connective tissue restrictions to eliminate pain and restore motion. This essential “time element” has to do with the viscous flow and the piezoelectric phenomenon: a low load (gentle pressure) applied slowly will allow a viscoelastic medium (fascia) to elongate.

Hot Stone Massage

Hot stones are placed at key points around your body, and used as massage tools with essential oils to help promote deep relaxation and balance. You can choose soft or deep tissue work. Truly a great experience...

Sports Massage

A Sports massage is ideal to treat injuries and as well as a preventative treatment dealing with the health of muscle and connective tissue, range of movement, tone, symmetry, balance of muscle and quality of posture. I further define my role as ‘the manipulation of soft tissue to release tension, reduce pain, restore range of movement and promote good condition'. This is achieved through a range of techniques I possess and carry around in my ‘tool bag', some of which are effective on some people, some of which are not. It is then down to me to work with my clients to find the right tools to unravel their current injury situation or assist them with their training program. Essentially the ‘manipulation of soft tissue' in my books means moving muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue around in a range of ways to achieve the desired effect.

Swedish

Passive, long and rhythmic strokes are used to stimulate circulation, calming the mind and soothing the nerves. Choose light or firm touch.

Pregnancy

A special massage created exclusively to relieve those particular aches and pains associated with weight-bearing tension and fatigue. It also noticeably reduces swelling.

Other

+++Cupping Therapy --- Cupping therapy is used in traditional Chinese medicine to release congestion. Cups are placed on the skin and a suction gun is used to create vacuum inside the cups. Leaving the cups on the skin for a few minutes will turn the skin red. This is an indication that circulation has been brought to the surface. The suction will increase blood flow and will release rigid soft tissues and muscles.

I felt amazing and so relaxed afterwards

Irena is very dedicated on her service. She barely speaks during massaging but rather focuses her whole energy on the body she is working on. Plus, she uses relaxing music to keep the ambience toned in during the whole massage. Also, she coordinates the room lighting and indoor fountain all worked together to create a very soothing environment. Last not least, she keeps her massage bed very clear and warm. All in all, she is an expert to deliver the good quality massage experience, and develop a very clean cozy comfortable environment.

WOW!!! Irena is now my #1 masseuse! I just had one 90min advanced massage therapy with her. She really impresses me with her massage techniques incorporating hands-only, warm stones, salts, moving suction, warm towels, and cold stones for facial massage. She has the best soothing yet high vibrating energy background music along with the real water fountain running in the opposite side of the room. Before she started, she asked which parts of my body needed additional attention. I have had very good experience with past masseuses so I know they can tell what they need to focus on more. Irena is at a different level so I'm sure she can tell but the fact that she took the time to ask/confirm shows the care she's giving her client. After our session, she took the time to explain that I should try cupping and its benefits. Her service is priced higher. After one massage, she is totally worth it!! I have already scheduled more appointments with her as she's in high demand🙏
